Printing 'Extents': Criteria of Performance
Olson, Stephen Charles, II

Printing 'Extents' asserts that, in order for the 3D printing process to be integrated into the production of the built environment, the conditions that define traditional modules within architecture must be rethought. Additionally, that the physical extents of any 3D printer suggest a paradigm in which the dimensional and geometric constraints typically applied to modules, act not as fixed conditions, but rather as bounding parameters from which many variations of a given module may be derived. Finally, that the use of the 3D printer, must give consideration to criterias of performance, rather than issues of representation.
