Modern digital design techniques are reshaping traditional boundaries in engineering. With contemporary tools, even less-experienced clients can now construct structures that were once deemed too complex or costly.
The use of advanced technologies in constructing both intricate prototype structures and traditional buildings allows components to be broken down into lightweight, easily manageable parts. This not only reduces building costs but also enables the direct transmission of cutting files to fabricators.
Embracing these new technologies requires an investment in skill development and a departure from conventional approaches. In this lecture, we'll explore real-world examples, highlighting the advantages and challenges of this democratization process.
Watch the recording from the live technical lecture to gain insights into the ongoing democratization of the building process and learn how emerging technologies are transforming the role of engineers.
