CONTENT & APPROACH
The workshop introduces students to computational design strategies for Design-to-Robotic-Production and -Operation (D2RP&O) in order to achieve material and process efficiency as well as physical and/or sensorial reconfiguration. Students are asked to identify aspects related to robotic production and operation that are relevant for the CS project. The exercise focuses on hybrid componentiality consisting of elements made of circular wood and connected with 3D printed steel nodes.
The following D2RP studies are proposed:
1. Subtractive D2RP: The development of a structurally optimized curvy-/linear component milled from circular wood,
2. Additive D2RP: The development of a structurally optimized 3D printed node.
a. 1 to max. 2 minutes video of D2RP process,
b. Report (1500 words) consisting of textual and photo/graphical documentation of physical prototypes and design to fabrication process developed during the semester,
c. Clean Rhino and Grasshopper files and refined version D2RP procedures,
d. 3D printed model, 1:1 prototypes, and tests.
