The paper describes and evaluates the design and manufacturing process of complex shapes. A parametric structure is designed on the 3D-model, its shape is evaluated on the 3D-printed model, and is manufactured on a 1:1 scale using augmented-reality (AR). The following questions arise: where are the limits for 3D-printed shapes and the limits for implementation using AR? The 3D-printed model will be used to test and evaluate the structure. Using the HoloLens with Fologram software, an attempt is made to recreate the structure with high precision. This process is tested as a hypothesis based on the quantitative, practical investigation. The influence of the use of technical hardware and digital software on the precise implementation of complex forms in the design is shown, and how the influence of digitization and related handling in the field of architecture shifts the limit of feasibility and allows new approaches to the formation of forms.
