In the KASPARC project, designed by Zaha Hadid, we are using smart algorithms - artificial intelligence based methods - to do a very original task. We are automatically importing CATIA files of complex facade panels into Rhinoceros 3D. In an automated proces, the geometry of these structures is examined, the unique panels are identified and examined for errors. By creating an original, AI based software, we managed to find many geometrical errors, thus saving a lot of production costs.
