  1. 1. Cost-Effective Desktop Prototyping in BuildingDesignChris Job / Suleiman AlhadidiRMIT University © 2012 Autodesk
  2. 2. Class SummaryWhile the architectural workflow often allows us to present physicalmodels of project proposals, the extension of this process into detailexploration or prototyping has always been considered expensive andtime consuming. However, using Autodesk® Revit® software throughoutthe architectural workflow enables designers to consider the benefit ofcreating cost-effective 3D prototypes to investigate the physicality ofcomplex geometry, demonstrate integrative design approaches, and eventest propositions around the development of alternative materials orstructural composites. The availability of portable desktop 3D printing iscreating opportunities to consider prototyping in building design to exploremore innovative integrative design solutions and deliver these to clientsand builders in a tactile way. © 2012 Autodesk
  3. 3. Learning ObjectivesIn this session we will:Initiatediscussion around the benefits of 3Dprototyping as part of integrative designprocessExplain how models can be developed toallow for 3D printingExplain how to use portable 3D printing in acost effective wayInvite discussion on how 3D prototyping couldbe used to explore complex geometry or detailsimulation © 2012 Autodesk

  36. 36. Discussion3D prototyping can be used to explore complex geometry or detail simulation. •Is it for the designer to be able to examine their own design? •Is it for a designer to show the client a small scale of the final outcome? •is it for a designer to think about the complex geometric as a “kit-of-part? © 2012 Autodesk
