My PhD centers on future perspectives of additive fabrication techniques.

The research aims at a local specification of the designed object beyond the already known benefits of accuracy, speed and achievable complexity that one normally connects with additive fabrication. The geometric control that is feasible today through advances in computational geometry defines an interface that can drive the composition of the object itself in its internal composition. The complex of digital and manufacturing tools provides an interface that can be used to embed various forms of information data that resolve the configuration of a locally adjustable geometry with increasing possibilities for multiple and functionally gradient materials (FGM). Continuously changing three-dimensional structures above a layer-thickness of 12m can now be studied on a broader range of scales. A “sub-surface” configuration of this three dimensional geometric and mechanical content can be configured to embed a future usability into an object´s envelope that provides smoother integration of different functions, as dynamic performance and tuneable mechanical properties. The local geometric and material articulation of micro-and meso-structures can be implemented to comply with a desired performance profile.
