Spatially 3D Printed Structures
Intro: Robotic 3D printing could promote an alternative tectonic that encourages variation and differentiation on a large-scale, instead of being bound to geometric simplification, standardisation and repetition.
The conceptual change, from layer-based material deposition to spatial extrusion, has several noteworthy implications: 1) the fabrication time is significantly reduced and becomes feasible for application in construction at the large scale; 2) the densities could be generated according to the various forces that act on the structure.

Focusing on a topic such as:
– Functionally graded material (structural optimization, material efficiency, visual gradient);
– Material behavior variations via tool-path manipulation (stiffness / flexibility);
– Specific spatial 3D printing challenges (overhang, long spans, customized node connections);
– Ornamentation
