Digital Fabrication + Spatial Printing

Over the last two decades, digital fabrication tools such as laser cutting, 3D printing, and CNC milling machines have become broadly accessible to designers. The design and manufacturing workflow allows us to build a complex, tangible model directly from digital data. However, due to limitations of size and workable materials, it has not been widely used throughout the construction industry.
