    CATIA Leaf Chair

    One of our tasks in the Columbia Building Intelligence Project (CBIP) Studio was to master CATIA, an advanced engineering/CAD/management/scripting application that has been used to manufacture jet planes.  

    The software is INCREDIBLE, and its possibilities for architectural applications seem endless...but it's not so easy to learn.  

    We started with something small and simple; the first assignment was to model a chair in CATIA and demonstrate its parametric properties. 

    Here is the chair I made earlier this semester: 


    Will (hopefully) find time to write more CBIP soon...
