Robotic Machining
Robotic Machining

Multiple axis robots have brought a lot of inspirations to free-form surface fabrication. One strategy assembles materials to construct complex structures, for instance, robotic 3D printing and robotic masonry. The other chooses material-removal process. For example, the TRI_V project of Lab.AAA cut polystyrene boards with hot wire to produce shell components. While the ‘Generative Surface Machining’ project […]
