NerViLab – Modeling and prototyping

NURBS modelling was chosen as the best option, since it is capable of describing lines and surfaces continuously, by means of mathematical equations that guarantee a strict morphogenetic control of the geometry of the single parts. Once the type of modelling to be used had been established and the subject of the modelling defined – in this case, the geometric structural apparatus of the works selected – for each building it was decided which portion would be prototyped, and the relative print scale according to the machine specifications.

The mathematical model comes to serve as both a tool for retrieving data and simultaneously, a research and knowledge tool that could control shapes in space that were difficult to handle on a plane.

The prototyping phase entails the conversion of the mathematical model into into a numerical one. It consists of the discretization (or tessellation) of the mathematical model, which simplifies the continuous surfaces, turning them into polyhedric surfaces (defined by their flat faces alone), or meshes. In the case of architectural representation, the crucial passage in the reduction of the continuous to the discrete is the shape optimization, understood as the attainment of an equilibrium between a limited number of polygons and the approximation level.
