Augmented Vision workshop results

Augmented Vision was a 3-day design-build workshop exploring mixed reality applications for design and fabrication using Rhino 7, Fologram, and the HoloLens 2. The workshop was an opportunity to test experimental features (depth camera streaming) on the HoloLens 2 and implement a method for fast and approximate forming of surfaces with arbitrarily complex topology and geometry by hand in augmented reality. This was achieved by streaming depth camera data from the HoloLens to mixed reality applications running on the HoloLens that can compare physical geometry represented by point clouds to target geometry represented as mesh models. This comparison was then used to describe changes necessary for fabricators to better approximate digital mesh models using physical material and assisted in particular with complex forming tasks that required multiple bends or twists in sheets of fragile and malleable material.
