Building Information Modeling (BIM) presents a paradigm shift in the methodologies of organization and delivery for the discipline, but the ability to directly fabricate from this platform promotes unprecedented efficiency, expediency, and formal generation in the design process. This presentation will define the current form and component capabilities of BIM and how these correspond to the latest in digital fabrication technologies, such as CNC milling, 3D printing, laser-cutting, and 5-axis, water-jet cutting. Examples of each of these technologies will be discussed as well as specific, optimized workflows for attaining direct digitally fabricated outcomes. Some projections for future exploration, as well as advantages and disadvantages of this design process, will conclude the talk and lead to discussion on what can be expected from the interrelationship of these hardware and software technologies.
