Generating a Design Through 3D Simulation Tools

In order to design a particular element in a project that has a complex determination, the team at tOD use 3D simulation tools to generate a MESH type volume that constitute the shell of the designated element.

Once that shell is modeled, it is easy to transform it into 2D planes, thus creating a general plan to be placed and studied in the architecture.

The tools that tOD used:

  • 3Ds Max – (with “polygon cruncher” plugin)
  • AutoCAD
  • Revit Architecture
  • Rhinoceros 4.0





About tOD

Active since 2010, the architecture lab theOtherDada defends an alternative position towards the current practice of sustainability through exploration of the context and medium, invoking new relationships between climate, landscape, and inhabitants. Informed by our research into biomimicry, we aim to connect to the natural ecosystems of sites to understand and consequently devise new potential living habitats. theOtherDada works within a collaborative process between architects, scientists, botanists, artists, economists and craftsmen.
