Robotic Building. While, architecture and architectural production are increasingly incorporating aspects of non-human agency employing data, information, and knowledge contained within the (worldwide) network connecting electronic devices, the relevant question for the future is not whether robotic building may be implemented, but how robotic systems may be incorporated into building processes and physically built environments in order to serve and improve everyday life; how these systems may offer solutions for energy-efficient building, demand-driven production and operation, and efficient use of resources. The RB session of the GSM #3 symposium aims to answer this question by critically reflecting on the achievements of the last decades in applications of robotics in architecture and furthermore outlining potential future developments and their societal implications.

Henriette Bier (Founder RB/ RB session chair/NGB#3 editor) CNC Software: CAM Software, Simulators, Editors and Utilities. CNC Software: Digital Tooling for CNC Why Digital Tooling? When I was learning to be a manual machinist, people used to say, "Budget as much for tooling as you do the machine. " Danged if they weren't right. In fact, if you wanted to be well tooled up (and what machinist wouldn't?) , you could even leave off your measuring tools from that budget and focus on workholding, fixturing, toolholding, cutters, and the like. And, if they aren't already on the machine, you have to put a DRO and any power feeds in this category as well.

Then I went CNC, and I started noticing a lot of that tooling wasn't needed any more. G-Code editors and feeds and speeds calculators were not far behind. Digital Tooling: We need software as much as hard tooling to be successful CNC'ers... Some machinists are funny about Digital Tooling. With CNC, your digital tooling may have a bigger productivity impact than any of your "real" tooling. Why is Digital Tooling so important for CNC? CADCAM Workflow: The Big Picture. Elisa Strozyk flexibiliza la madera hasta convertirla en un textil. Elisa Strozyk flexibiliza la madera hasta convertirla en un textil Cuando pensamos en diseño de autor, sabemos que nos enfrentamos a un producto único y especial.

Un diseño innovador que es capaz de cambiar nuestra percepción y cultura visual: eso es exactamente lo que logra la diseñadora alemana Elisa Strozyk con Wooden Textiles, una línea de productos que mezcla la madera con el textil. La diseñadora nos enseña que la innovación sigue siendo parte fundamental del diseño, pues adjudica a la madera propiedades vivientes al convertirla en un textil flexible con movimientos impredecibles, cambiando su color y su textura. Un modo sorprendente de usar este tradicional material para crear nuevas formas y experiencias. Wooden textiles busca transmitir una nueva experiencia táctil. Elisa Strozyk investiga las maneras de proporcionar propiedades textiles a la madera haciéndola más suave y flexible. El mundo que nos rodea es cada vez más intangible.

Step 24: Open Rhino Step 25: Go to Surface>Heightfield from Image. Navigate to Image saved in Step 23 and Select. Step 26: In the Top viewport, input the location for the start corner and type 12” for the length of the side. This is arbitrary, as we can scale it later. Step 27: In the Heightfield Dialogue box enter at least 200 X 200 for sample points and 1 for the depth.

Step 28: Select the resulting suface and go to Analyze>Bounding Box and hit enter. Step 30: Using this bounding box, we will use Transform>Scale>Scale 1D to make the vertical height of the waves more appropriate. Step 31: Draw the stock (what you are milling out of) with the top face of the lower left hand corner at 0,0,0 and place your rippled surface within the stock. Step 32: Draw a rectangle on the top of the stock that represents where you want to cut the piece out when it is done doing the surfacing. We are now done setting up the CAD file for CAM processing. Wave. LIFT architects - Home - [Andrew Payne] It has been entirely too long since I last posted but that should change over the coming weeks as I've been working on some really amazing projects. To kick things off, I thought I'd share a one week project that I developed to create a dimple halftone pattern on a surface using a custom build Grasshopper definition which writes the all of the G-code (for a ShopBot CNC mill) in real-time.

I'll talk more about the fabrication setup below, but first... a little about the concept. I've always been fascinated with the skeletal patterns of Radiolarians (a family of microscopic protozoa that float along the ocean floor). Here's a Wikipedia link for more information. I decided to take something very big (the final piece is milled out of a half size sheet (72"x30") of Corian) out of something that is very very small. Before I get to far, there are a few precedent projects that I would like to acknowledge.

If you’re looking for a truly unique piece of furniture for your living room, we found it for you. The Geo Cocktail Table is definitely an eye-catching piece that will instantly become the focal point of attention if any room, beating even the comfy sofa. Designed by Vito Selma, this unique piece of furniture features extraordinary lines and a very complex design. The interesting thing about this unusual cocktail table is, that you look at it from different angles, it changes its form and appearance. It can either look like a DNA table base or as a structure ready to fly. The base of the table has a very complex and dynamic design. This beautiful table is made of either Pine or Mahogany wood.

En marzo de 1975 nace de forma oficial el Homebrew Computer Club, un pionero grupo de aficionados a los computadores en Silicon Valley, que comenzó a celebrar encuentros de garaje para compartir experiencias, conocimientos, diseños, fórmulas en un foro abierto de discusión en torno al mundo de la computación. Sus fundadores, Gordon French y Fred Moore, emergían del contexto original de inmersión de los primeros sistemas de computación en centros educativos y hogares, en la primera mitad de la década de los 70. Sin embargo, tres décadas antes de la llegada de la computación a los hogares, en la década de los 40, John von Neumann diseña lo que se conoció como el Constructor Universal, una máquina autorreplicante que operaría en un ambiente celular autómata, capaz de fabricar todas las piezas que la componían, es decir, de autoreproducirse e incluso incorporar mutaciones con mayor nivel de complejidad.

Una Máquina para Todo El Sensor Piezo Activo Roland (SPAR) transforma la máquina en un escáner 3D para escanear objetos en 3D y crear datos 3D. La unidad de husillo de fresado convierte la máquina en una completa herramienta CNC (control numérico computado) capaz de cortar cera de joyería, resinas, pasta de madera, acrílico e incluso metales livianos como bronce y aluminio.

Creación Sustractiva y Rápida de Prototipos Creación Sustractiva y Rápida de Prototipos (SRP) - partiendo de un objeto sólido y eliminando el material necesario - tiene varias ventajas sobre la creación rápida de prototipos tradicional. Es significativamente más barata que las máquinas de creación rápida de prototipos con la misma resolución, las máquinas SRP fresan una amplia variedad de materiales que cuestan menos y no necesitan productos químicos o acabado posterior. Además, producen un acabado superior. La tecnología de Sensor Piezo Activo Roland (SPAR) elimina las desventajas de los escáneres 3D de contacto. Fab lab inventory.

MSc2 studio – 1:1 prototypes Whole studio project was initialized by Hyperbody research group at the Faculty of Architecture in TU Delft University .

Jelle Feringa was leading the course and provided us with all needed infrastructure. Special thanks should also be given to guys from ROK office – Matthias Rippmann and Silvan Oesterle, they were kind enough to come to Delft and teach us how to make the best use of Rhino-Vault plugin , which they themselves develop. Chris Kievid was also very helpful in the assembly of the pavilion. Video showing the whole process and result Tutors: Jelle Feringa – Hyperbody TU Delft | EZCT Architecture & Design Research Silvan Oesterle – Architecture and Digital Fabrication, ETH Zürich | ROK Matthias Rippmann – BLOCK Research Group, ETH Zürich | ROK Pictures from initial workshop This project gave me an opportunity to explore new ways in which 1:1 prototypes can be manufactured by using ABB robots.
