Mine the Scrap Software

We encapsulated the logic and procedures of our “Mine the Scrap” project into a standalone software application that allows the user all the power of shape data mining and generative re-use.

The software has two key views: the first is an enhanced stream from any webcam, which identifies and classifies scrap you have collected for re-use. The second is a working view of a target design which the user selects. This target design is dynamically adapted according to the available scanned material, creating a machine-assisted structural quilt.

The software will scan the scrap pieces you have available and adapt the structure according to the preferences you outline.
The program will simulate the final look of the building with a rendered view of the scrap pieces in their final positions.
