Digitale Bauprozesse - Robotic Fabrication

Seminar WiSe 2023/24



This seminar provides basic knowledge for architectural design and fabrication with industrial robots. How can we use our digital drawing for a subsequent digital assembly? What is needed to instruct a robot arm to perform tasks involving movement and actions like picking and placing objects? What information needs to be put in the drawing and how must it be translated to be understood by a robot controller?


The topic of this seminar is building your own parametric design by using an industrial robot arm. In order to achieve that, you will learn basic acknowledgment of grasshopper and Rhinoceros, use our software robot components and ABB Robotstudio to simulate the robot arm, and finally build a structure on a small scale with the ABB industrial robot arm. There are often many unexpected problems in the process from theory to practice, such as accuracy issues, singularity problems in robotics, and features of different materials. In this seminar, students will find and solve those problems, so that they can be considered in advance in future designs.
