Models for designing physical structures with lifelike movements
Advances in additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have made it possible to create exceptionally complex designs using a constantly expanding range of materials, giving rise to fascinating opportunities. However, this has also resulted in a rapidly growing gap between what can be produced and what can be designed. The EU-funded 3DPBio project aims to take advantage of the amazing design possibilities that AM technologies have created by bridging the fields of computer animation and computational fabrication. To this end, it will develop the computational and mathematical foundations for the algorithmic design of physical structures that can generate lifelike movements. This work will establish new ways to algorithmically create digital designs that can be turned into mechanical lifeforms at the push of a button.
