The possibilities of digitalisation for interior design and construction are manifold. Designing and planning on the computer has already arrived in many offices, but what about the execution? How is the 3D model promptly and precisely converted into 1:1 built reality?
Additive manufacturing offers numerous application possibilities for interior design and construction: from concept models to furniture to 1:1 built building parts. By combining computer-aided design and additive manufacturing and using the "new tools" in the right way, the full potential of digital manufacturing can be realised.
Jörg Petri likes to talk about "digital craftsmanship" and is firmly convinced that we are only at the beginning of a revolution in craftsmanship. The lecture gives a good insight into the contribution that BASF Forward AM can make to individual tasks and requirements. He explores how 3D printing will open up sustainable design and construction possibilities, what new façade systems will emerge and how 3D printed formwork will revolutionise concrete construction.
