AtFAB Transformation Simulations

Above, is a series of 3D model animations that we used to study parametric transformations of different AtFAB furniture pieces. Studies of the Table, Cat in Bag Table, Storage and Beside Table enabled our team to learn what furniture parts should transform, what parts should remain fixed, what were the extreme conditions for each piece, etc. From these studies, we could develop precise customization parameters for each AtFAB furniture object. You can find the resulting customization applets here. Our team is using these techniques to explore changes in magnitude as well as changes in kind, and relationships of genotype, phenotype, and growth in design.
