This paper presents intermediate results of an experimental research directed towards development of a method to use additive manufacturing technology as a generative agent in architectural design process. The primary technique is to variate speed of material deposition of a 3D printer in order to produce undetermined textural effects. These effect...

With the rise of the digital in architecture and the availability of digital fabrication tools, the interest in the material aspect of the model has intensified. At the same time, the design space for exploration of material behavior and its design potential has been extended from the physical into the digital. This has resulted in a cyclic set of...

... Westerlind [20] used computational design methods for the programmed placement of the filament in space to produce intricate porous choreographed concrete compositions. Alothman et al. [21], and Mohite and Kotnik [22] generated emergent patterns by manipulating the print path, controlling the geometry and the motion speed, in small scale semifluid material extrusion. Efthimiou and Grasser [23] implemented an agent-based path planning and printing simulation to control the 3DCP process and minimum printable distance between neighbouring geometries. ...
... 27 This work was continued in studies that explored intentional errors in 3D printing, generated by deliberately tweaking a 3D printer's G-code and hardware setup. 28,29 Owing to these studies, knowledge on the aesthetics of imprecision in the context of 3D printing is now quite broad. At the same time, however, the aesthetic of imprecision for other fabrication techniques remains unexplored. ...
