||From physical to digital modeling: a case of study in the design of a space truss
||Pinzon Latorre, Andrés
||This paper is focused on how materials, modeled geometry and machinery can be related to study design and fabrication of spatial trusses. It is presented through an investigation carried by students of architecture as part of a class in materials. The objective of the class was to study a material in the context of Component Design; enhancing the principle of learning by modeling. In doing so, this document describes the techniques carried on by the students, assesses the results obtained, and discusses about the pertinence and alternatives to learn about component and assembly design.
