  • Poster accepted: Design Computing and Cognition

    Harry has had a poster accepted to DCC 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia for the end of June. The work presented looks at the capability of varying mass properties in rapid protoyped parts by manipulating the infill density through the part(s). This work follows on from Harry’s work on identifying the effect on user perceptions of […]

  • New Publication Alert! Characterising the Digital Twin: A systematic literature review
