Comunian, T. G., Fazzina, V., Martinelli, A., Porro, S., (2022). Optimization study of FDM 3d printing for the presentation of the architectural models
The prototyping of physical models by 3d printing is today one of the most common methods of presentation or composition of architectural projects, both in the academic and professional fields. In particular, the 3d printing with the FDM method based on PLA is diffused in several laboratories and studies, offering a high-precision physical model of remarkable resistance. Given its increasing use, also a lot of scientific literature has deepened its qualities, practices, and aesthetics, as well as identifying material compositions and procedural expedients increasingly efficient from the ecological point of view, therefore, the study proposes an analysis and the verification of the actual sustainability of the process, focusing phase of estimation, project management, and actual extrusion, in an exclusively ecological perspective, through experimentation and comparison of data. The analysis has led to the specific deepening of the techniques of infill of the printed volume, which affect in particular the consumption of material and its efficiency, therefore identifying optimal solutions and finding critical issues to be taken into account during the life of the prototype.

Fazzina, V., Comunian, T.G., Martinelli, A., Porro, S., Schiavo, A., (2023), Mario Ridolfi’s Motel Agip: from graphic analysis to parametric and immersive representation
The research aims to describe the process of generation and growth of the architectural form of an unrealized project by Mario Ridolfi, the Agip Motel in Settebagni, through the aid of graphic analysis, geometric and parametric modeling and virtual reality . Versatile architect, with a vast production, well documented by sources, of completed and unrealized projects, the latter little studied, especially from the point of view of geometry.
The abundant presence of design documentation has allowed us to identify and reconstruct the geometric layout on which the motel tower is based: a decagonal matrix plan with star-shaped vertices, in a progression of floors defined by a cylindrical helix. This polycentric trend of the elevation manifests itself in a twisting of the building, and in a continuous irregularity of the internal plans, which therefore requires the project to make a considerable effort to adapt.
Starting from the graphic reconstruction, a 3D model of the plan and a parametric script of the casing were created, which controls the various functions of the torsion and the different perimeters. Finally, at the end of the restitution, it was decided to reproduce the discretized parametric model in an augmented reality system, with an interactive mechanic to scroll the planes of the model and effectively visualize the evolution of the heights.

Ceccon, L., & Cavaglià, M. (2023). An iterative algorithmic UAV path optimization process for Structure-for-Motion modelling.
The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for 3D reconstruction through photogrammetry has gained significant attention in recent years. With the advancement of technology and the availability of affordable drones with high-resolution cameras, capturing aerial images for creating detailed 3D models has become more accessible, however, UAV survey flight planning still presents challenges. The planning stage is essential in aerial photogrammetry as it sets the foundation for efficient and accurate surveying. Proper predictive planning ensures a smooth workflow on site, generating high-quality datasets for reconstruction while minimizing the need for repeat surveys. This approach not only reduces costs but also mitigates potential errors and delays during the survey process. Within the presented frame of reference, the present study explores the use of UAVs for 3D reconstruction through photogrammetry, focusing on optimizing flight paths and view planning. It addresses challenges such as safety, navigation, and image dataset optimization. The study presents the current advancement of custom parametric workflow developed in Rhino/Grasshopper. The workflow is targeted for average users, aiming to simplify the process and integrate it with architectural and planning workflows. The approach involves four algorithms, including proxy model generation, visibility analysis, path generation, and camera position estimation. The iterative process enhances precision through progressive refinement of the proxy model, offering potential for predictive modelling and effective photogrammetry utilization in UAV planning. Further research and testing are needed to validate real-world performance.
