hyperganic 3 Days Intensive Masterclass in Algorithmic Engineering

Additive Manufacturing, or 3D Printing, enabled the production of complex objects. However, the paradigm with which modern engineers create such objects is not that different from that used by the ancient Romans and Greeks – laborious, limited by the skills, knowledge and creativity of human engineers. How can we finally elevate the roles of engineers and truly tap into the added complexity […]
