This 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.
The research contributes to the body of work, dedicated to adoption of AM in architectural practice by providing foundations for utilizing various printing parameters, in particular speed of movement to generative ends. Even though only small-scale models were produced, iterative experimentation with continuous growth of complexity allowed to generate sufficient amounts of objective data and tacit knowledge on main dependencies and causalities between elements of design and fabrication. That information was then synthesized into diagrams and fed into the design of the process model, which embodies Speed-Based technique.
