Computer-aided design, computer-assisted surgery or computer-aided manufacturing: the advent of conception, simulation and intervention through digital means has already wrought a permanent change to the ways of thinking and acting in the areas of architecture, design, biomaterial science and medicine. Recently, the deployment of advanced robotics, tracking systems and real-time imaging promises to not only close and ‘seamlessly’ link but to establish permanent feedback loops that mutually transform digital processes and physical materialities. For example, designing a construction in architecture by means of computer-aided design software, automatically transferring the data to 3D-printing devices, and controlling the process by augmented-reality technologies to detect deviations between planning and materialization points to the fundamental role of computer-aided techniques. Besides constructive computer-aided techniques, interventional practices that are enabled by computational processes as in computer-assisted surgery pose literally vital questions of how computing ‘aids’ certain practices and actors and point to ethical, legal and socio-economic issues. If computer-aided methods can no longer be thought of primarily as design or conceptual tools residing in the computer's black box, how can they be understood in their transformative potential that crosses the ontological threshold to the environment, bodies and materials? What kind of specific aid or assistance do computational methods provide in architecture, biological sciences, design and medicine, and how can one analyze the overlay and merging of digital and physical layers of CAx from an interdisciplinary perspective?
