The purpose of this research is to use digital technology to streamline operations and improve construction when using non-uniform building materials with discrete and differing forms, such as those used in traditional wooden buildings. Taking irregular timber procurement as a model use case, we formulated a method of utilizing 3D scanning technology to facilitate inspection and processing considerations.
