Ashish Mohite Speed-Based Additive Manufacturing Technique
Discovery and Exploration of Design Potential of Speed of Deposition in Additive Manufacturing


Ashish Mohite's paper-based doctoral thesis is the result of a PhD research into generative design potential of certain fabrication parameters in Additive Manufacturing (AM). Advent and proliferation of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) in the field of architecture challenges the way buildings are designed and made. Like construction methods before CAM, large-scale concrete and metal 3D-printing will set limitations and opportunities for design, however, uniquely it will offer a chance for architects to radically expand the profession's domain. In digital fabrication, an architect has a capacity to participate in designing construction workflow.

Predicated upon this context, the hypothesis is that manipulating machining parameters would inform various elements of an architectural object and that the value of such intervention would be in enhanced continuity of the design process and in emphasis on material aspects of architecture. The research questions are: what architectural implications are latent in AM fabrication parameters, such as speed of movement? How can such parameters be instrumentalized to produce specific effects? These questions are investigated through research by design methodology, with an aim to develop an essential structure for Speed-Based AM technique by determining most prominent relationships, causalities and dependencies within speed of deposition and between it and other elements of the production system. Speed-Based technique is an AM method devised by this research. It revolves around designing speed of deposition, defined as a term for how fast a printer moves and how much matter it deposits at a given location.
