What to expect during the event
Cellular designs use repeating patterns or unit cells to create structures with desirable properties: strength, flexibility, and lightness. Inspired by natural structures like honeycombs and plant tissues, cellular designs offer excellent mechanical properties for various industries. Parametric modeling combined with cellular designs in nature-inspired material architecture enables the development of advanced materials and structures with improved performance and sustainability
