Charles Lee wins the AIA Young Associate of the Year Award 2010 and loves the new Zcorp 3d print!

I was awarded the AIA San Francisco Young Architects and Associates Award which recognizes individuals of all ages who have shown exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession in an early stage of their architectural career. Thank You! To my wife, friends and colleagues in their support.  I was also thrilled my thesis professor and friend Neal Schwartz and Architecture won an Honor award for Unbuilt Work .It was very kind of him to allow me to consult and model on such a beautiful project check out some of the diagrams I helped draw. It was great to see so many CCA alum and faculty win so many awards, congrats to everyone at Iwamotoscott, refract house etc.

Also exciting my friend Rahul Verma Account Manager of  Multimedia at Ideate Inc demonstrated how newly formulated powder can print with a great deal of strength in fine detail.  It is nice to finally see the complex model in one whole piece. Congrats! If only it was my award 🙂

    • The material is made by Zcorp for their 3d printers and is a plaster like powder that is glued together with a binding agent. It was made using the polygonal modeling techniques in the 3d modeling software 3dstudio max by Autodesk and converted into a stl file for printing. I hope that helps.

      I am not completely sure what you are proposing/asking. The type of 3d printer it was printed with does not use a flexible material. If we printed it on another brand of printer like Objet we could print it in rubber etc. I think it would be really cool flexible. After going to the AA Biodynamic structures lectures at the CCA last week I think it would be a great field of study to see what it could do with flexible fibers etc.
