///3F3D|Next generation printed steel knots
The recently at the TU Delft Architectural Engineering / Façade Program graduated MSc Bayu Prayudhi developed a fully forces optimized freeform knot. It is meant to be part of a free form grid shell structure and was engineered to support structural loads as well as an optimized production process. The knot is being printed by binder jetting of stainless steel powder with 40% infused of bronze powder.
Mentors were Michela Turrin and Ulrich Knaack, both TU Delft and Shibo Ren / ARUP Amsterdam
