Contour Crafting

Recommended Posts

Behrokh Khoshnevis is a professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering and is the Director of Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Program at the University of Southern California (USC). He is active in CAD/CAM, robotics and mechatronics related related research projects that include the development of novel Solid Free Form, or Rapid Prototyping, processes (Contour Crafting and SIS), automated construction of civil structures, development of CAD/CAM systems for biomedical applications (e.g., restorative dentistry, rehabilitation engineering, haptics devices for medical applications), autonomous mobile and modular robots for assembly applications in space, and invention of technologies in the field of oil and gas. His research in simulation has aimed at creating intelligent simulation tools that can automatically perform many simulation functions that are conventionally performed by human analysts. His textbook, "Discrete Systems Simulation", and his simulation software EZSIM benefit from some aspects of his research in simulation. He routinely conducts lectures and seminars on invention and technology development.

He is a Fellow member of the Society for Computer Simulation and a Fellow member of the Institute of Industrial Engineering. He is a senior member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. His website: http://www-rcf.usc.edu/~khoshnev/

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Muito interessante. Isto tem um potencial enorme.

Tudo muito giro, mas a construção está longe de ser uma coisa planeada e perfeita que avança do 0 ao 100% sem problemas, incompatibilidades entre especialidades, trocas de materiais para outros diferentes características e dimensões, indecisões acerca do que vai ser efectivamente feito, falta de verbas de modo a que seja respeitado o projecto inicial, etc, etc, etc...

A construção é ainda hoje em dia uma coisa muito feita em cima do joelho e por muito que se planeie e coordene, grande parte das coisas é feita em cima do joelho e depois "logo se vê"...

Este tipo de construção é para um edifício que tem um projecto perfeito, com uma compatibilização perfeita, com materiais específicos para serem aplicados no sítio exacto, etc. Isso só existe no computador...
