Through the documentation and the methodological approach to the Moebius Strip, the nature and specifications of digital fabrications are analyzed. The properties of a series of possible geometric configurations of strips were studied, establishing a correlation with their digital fabrication, with the aim of reflecting on the complex logics of creation and simulation of reality, as well as contributing to the theoretical exploration of the role of architects and designers, in this incipient and ongoing discipline.
