Below is a list of some of our more recent publications. We’ll endeavour to keep this list updated, but for up-to-date publications lists organised by author, please see our University of Bristol profiles (these are linked on our “Person” pages).
The DMF lab had their usual strong showing at the major conference for the research field last week, presenting 9 papers across topics ranging from prototyping to machine learning to neurocognition! This year the International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED) was held in beautiful Bordeaux, which blessed us with excellent weather, warm evenings, and one […]
The DMF lab recently (remotely) attended the International Conference of Engineering Design (ICED) 2021 to present seven papers. One of these, authored by Chris Cox, Ben Hicks and James Gopsill, investigates the new language surrounding the paradigm shift towards digital engineering. This presentation was shown at ICED 2021 as part of the “Digital Twins” panel, […]
Prototyping is an indispensable activity in the product development process but what does prototyping practice in industry look like? In this video we take a ‘snapshot’ of prototyping practice from 5 companies to see how practice has evolved and understand what the characteristics of industrial practices are. This work was presented at the International Conference […]
What are the differences in performance and usability of digitisation techniques? In this video we compare two such methods; photogrammetry and structured light scanning. For more details please see the full paper on the link here https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/proceedings-of-the-design-society/article/comparison-of-structured-light-scanning-and-photogrammetry-for-the-digitisation-of-physical-prototypes/66038D84EF1A45F22F601B899EFC0D25. This work was presented at the International Conference of Engineering Design (ICED) 2021.
The Design Manufacturing Futures Lab has published and presented its first paper entitled “Quantum Combinatoral Design” exploring the potential of applying Quantum Computing to Engineering Design problems. This was published and presented at the International Conference on Engineering Design 2021 (ICED21)
The Design Manufacturing Futures Lab has published and presented a paper entitled “Capturing Mathematical and Human Perceptions of Shape and Form through Machine Learning” that extends the groups knowledge, capability and understanding of how ML could be applied to support Engineering Design. This was published and presented at the International Conference on Engineering Design 2021 (ICED21)
Brokering Additive Manufacturing has published and presented its first paper entitled “Responding to rapidly changing product demand though a coordinated additive manufacturing production system: a COVID-19 case study” at the Manufacturing Engineering Society International Conference (MESIC 2021).
Negligible-cost microfluidic device fabrication using 3D-printed interconnecting channel scaffolds Available open access via PLOS One: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0245206 Harry, Robert Hughes and Andrea Diaz Gaxiola have together published work that demonstrates a fabrication method to produce negligible-cost microfluidic devices that can be combined using a system of inter-connecting joints. The method uses 3D printed scaffolds – produced […]
Harry today presented his poster titled “Investigating strategies for mass property replication in 3D printed prototypes” at DCC2020 – virtually, of course, given the world we now live in! The poster aims to introduce the use of variable infill for the purpose of replicating mass properties between as-designed and as-fabricated parts when using rapid prototyping. […]
