Digital Timber Workflows  was a workshop run in the autumn/winter semester 2016 at  CITAstudio  with  Tom Svilans . The task was for each group to produce a local glue-laminated branch as part of a global structure. We created one of the main columnar elements with two cross-laminated branching members which connect to other branches. The branch was made from 15x15mm sized lamellas which were formed using a mould to bend the branch into place. We experimented with different moulding techniques to find the most optimised for our purposes. For the connections we experimented with Japanese wood joints and settled on a custom cross-shaped mortise and tenon joint for the top connection and a lap joint for the lower connection. The branch was 3D Scanned using a  Faro Focus  to create a point cloud and to check the deviation of the produced form from what was intended.
