A 3-D laser scans an amalgam of textures, creating point clouds of data from the tops

A 3-D laser scans an amalgam of textures, creating point clouds of data from the tops of wall coverings and interior surfaces. It transmits their exact size and shape into the computer world and reimagines them as digital three-dimensional representations. The four surfaces below encapsulate some of the new manufacturing techniques and the latest developments in synthetic materials. Fabricated by 3-D-printed rollers, this wall panel is embossed with raised relief patterns that are soft to the touch. Notably, the material makeup is not vinyl, but an olefin-based film that is free of PVC, heavy metals, and chemicals. Ceiling Embroidered with a silvery floral jacquard motif, this melange surface makes a pleasantly unexpected wall covering. The cotton-linen blend involves an aged dyeing, a coloring process that yields three neutral hues: soft white, oatmeal brown, and muted turquoise. These sheets of glass were mouth-blown and then flattened by the heat of an 800°F oven. The process creates a motif that resembles glassy currents moving across the surface of a lake. This soft PVC-free alternative to vinyl is complete with veining and textures found in animal skin. The 50-50 silicone...

Position and unroll the detail strip square to the line of the eaves. Fix by nailing

Position and unroll the detail strip square to the line of the eaves. Fix by nailing top edge of detail strip using 10mm galvanised clout nails. Form the drip edge either dressing into gutter; or nailing to fascia at 5cm centres. Ensure the shingles are positioned square to the line of the eaves and verge. Horizontal shingle tile alignment is created by Interlocking side slots to the edges of the shingles. Vertical shingle tile alignment is created by opening guide slots in the top of the shingle strip into which the next course is engaged. Overlay the detail strip at the eaves with the base course of shingles nailed using 20mm galvanised clout nails, applied in line with the tile tab joint just above the bitumen adhesive strip. (5 fixings per strip) The fixing of the eaves course of roofing tile shingles is completed by applying felt lap adhesive onto the detail strip below the tile tabs to secure them to the detail strip. Lay the shingles diagonally across the roof taking care to keep them square to the line of the eaves and verge. Start shingle tile course with cut lengths to form a broken bond patten. First prepare the joint by cleaning off roof debris. Lift the tile tab an...
