3-Axis CNC Milling in Architectural Design
Physical scale models still have a role in architectural design. 3-axis CNC milling provides one way of making scale models both for study purposes and for presentation in durable materials such as wood. We present some types of scale models, the methods for creating them and the place in the design process that scale models occupy. We provide an overview of CNC milling procedures and issues and we describe the process of how one can creatively develop appropriate methods for milling different t
Recursos de anima??o digital para aprendizagem de leitura de plantas [Digital Animation Resources fo
This paper discusses the evolution of the technical resources employed in a website destined for the professional formation of constructors workers throught the interpretation of plans. Developed as a doctoral thesis in the Ph.D. program of Information Technology in Education, the reconstruction of the website is assimilating new resourses of digital animation, allowing a richer and more significative interaction, acording to the principles of Piaget's theory on constructivism that oriented the
Turnstijl Houses & Cannoli Framing
This work presumes that integrating modeling tools and digital fabrication technology into architectural practice will transform how we build the detached house. Single-family houses come in all shapes and sizes, and in doing so, imply variation as well in certain materials, methods, and lighter classes of structure. Ultimately, houses are extensions, if not expressions, of those dwelling within, yet our attempts to produce appealing manufactured houses have prioritized standardization over var
Evaluation of the Boscombe West & Springbourne Healthy Living Centre in Bournemouth,Sept 2005-Oct 20
The aim of this report is to summarise the Evaluation of a Healthy Living Centre. It explores and discusses the outcomes from the evaluation as well as the evaluation development from conception through to implementation. The report will also outline the processes through which the relevant evaluation theory emerged and identify the core lessons learnt as experienced by the external evaluators from Bournemouth University. The scope of this report does not extend to the on going findings of the

How can we take into account student conceptions of the facial angle in a palaeontology laboratory w
This study investigates student conceptions of the facial angle as a way to attain understanding elements of the theory of human evolution. The chosen laboratory work involved determining the species of a human cranium, and students had to design and write down their own experimental procedure. Three versions of the laboratory work were carried out leading to different student productions. Three aspects will be presented in the present paper, which are related to the three conceptual difficultie
