Based in Castlemaine, Digital Mould Design (DMD) are the leading digital mould and formwork designers in Australia. Following the first design installation with Like Butter in 2023 as part of Melbourne Design Week and Melbourne Art Book Fair at CAM, this year DMD have created a distinct steel GFRC mould installation to activate the gallery space. With many years of experience in concrete and GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) moulding, DMD specialise in solving the complex forms found in contemporary Australian architectural projects.

Tim Preston and Sholto Turner of DMD will be in conversation with CAM Director, Naomi Cass, discussing their design installation and offering insight into their process. Hear how DMD use 3D computer modelling to digitise the concrete form based on architectural drawings, CAD files, sketches or briefs, to design and develop mould and formwork systems suitable for a range of fabrication methods.
