MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"Over the last 50 years, digital fabrication has shaped the world of design and industrial production, reducing the gaps between digital technologies and the process of physical construction. In addition, issues related to climate change and carbon emissions have played a major role in the development of new sustainable materials. Although organic alternatives to plastic are in the process of being explored and developed, their application in interior design is still very limited. The reason for this can partly be attributed to the limited productive possibilities of these materials. In recent years, there has been a focus in the industry on combining such organic alternatives to plastic with digital manufacturing in the hope of achieving high-quality results for industrial applications.
This gives rise to the question: is the manufacturing of bioplastic through digital fabrication a key tool in efforts to increase its applications in architecture and interior projects?"

MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"The aim of this research is to explore the properties of bioplastics and to come to an understanding as to whether the manufacturing of this material by means of digital fabrication tools can allow the achievement of higher quality results and therefore lead to its wider application in architecture and interior design projects. This thesis seeks to offer insight into the current situation concerning the unsustainability of traditional plastics and a general overview of the alternative plastics currently available on the market. Two types of plastic in particular will be analysed: starch-based bioplastics, and bioplastics derived from waste. Subsequently, an insight concerning digital fabrication and its main techniques will provide the basis for the experimental part of the thesis, in which will be analyzed the domestic production of bioplastics and its digital processing, specifically with the laser cutter."
