    HOW TO CLIP ?

    3rd and Last VERTICAL LEVEL

    For our first prototype we decided to push the system to the limit, testing all the possibilities that the system provides. So we defined a more complex form, with 400 pieces and 5 meters height with a transition slope in the middle of the roof and an external terrace to place a removable bleacher. It is also important to mention, that taking into account that the vast majority of CNCs available in the market have only 3 axes, we also decided to restrict the design solutions by using only manufacturing strategies possible for this type of machine.

    Using the automation script we are able to: 1- Sort the pieces by name. 2- Prepare the drawings to be cut in a CNC machine. 3- Plan all pieces and organize them by panels. All this preparation ensured the best use of the material and reduced costs.

    During the first day of assembly, we split into two groups. Four people were in charge of bringing the pieces of the deposit and two others organized the pieces, on the pallets, level by level.

    In the end of the first day we had all the base and the first horizontal level done. It is important to emphasize that after completing the first level a “template” was formed, which guided the positioning of the parts of the next level, making the assembly much faster and easier.

    In order to explore the potencial of technology to create new solutions in the field of architecture and construction and increase the quality and access to houses around the world, we believe that the only way is empowering people by giving them the tools they need so they can build their own houses cheaply and quickly. Having it in mind, we defined some concepts.

    At this point, our expectation was to test how difficult it would be to disassemble the frame and whether the clips would resist the process. The goal was to analyze if it would be possible to reuse the parts and reassemble the structure more than once. After completing the disassembly, we find that most of the Clips can be reused. The next step is to continue to further optimize the clip making it even more reliable ..

    1- The decision to work only with small pieces proved to be correct, it was easier to handle the parts and it increased the efficiency of the workers. 2- In the whole process the structure was really stable, but once we connected all panels, as a bracing, it assumed another level of stability. 3- For future development, we intend to optimize the algorithm to release it on our website, allowing everyone to work on its development.

    CONCEPTS ADOPTED: 1- The construction should take place without the use of any tool or need of high knowledge in construction. 2- The assembly process should be done layer-by-layer to ensure that the construction is always stable throughout the entire process. 3- Any complexity generated in the production phase, that is, “in the factory”, would only be adopted if it facilitated directly the assembly process, in the field.

    On the second day, we set the first and second vertical levels. The joints worked well and it was not necessary to sanding the parts very much. The time required for this phase was 8 hours with 4 workers.

    Using a 3d print key, that can be produce in any 3d printer that uses ABS filament, we are able to adapt a large variety of material to the facade.
