English abstract:
The paper describes how to extend the parametric design process by including feedback from the production process and iterating a design towards a realizable object, considering real world constraints such as production costs and manufacturing time. In this paper, we report on our experiences with integrated design and production workflows from teaching a Master level digital design and production class, in which we give students a task to design and produce a luminaire based on a given production infrastructure (3d printers, laser cutters, 3-axis milling machines). Production processes are simulated and and provide feedback to designers about the feasibility of design alternatives regarding material use, cost, machine time. We describe the didactic and technical concepts and conclude with a discussion of open issues.
