By Sigrid Brell-Cokcan, Johannes Braumann

This quantity collects approximately 20 contributions relating to robot development tools. it's a court cases quantity of the robarch2012 symposium and workshop, to be able to occur in December 2012 in Vienna. Contributions will discover the present established order in undefined, technology and practitioners. The symposium should be held as a biennial occasion. This ebook is to be the 1st of the sequence, comprising the present prestige of robotics in structure, artwork and design.

Space Grid Structures

An area body is a 3-dimensional framework for enclosing areas within which all individuals are interconnected and act as a unmarried entity. A advantage of this sort of constitution is that very huge areas will be lined, uninterrupted by way of aid from the floor. John Chilton's publication presents an review of using house grid constructions in structures via reviewing tools of development, quite a few platforms on hand, and special stories of using house grids in smooth constructions.

Long-term Environmental Effects of Offshore Oil and Gas Development

Long term Environmental results of Offshore Oil and gasoline improvement includes 14 chapters via varied authors which specialize in the U.S..

Form and forces: designing efficient, expressive structures

Right here, in a single quantity, is the entire architect must recognize to take part within the whole strategy of designing constructions. Emphasizing bestselling writer Edward Allen's graphical technique, the publication lets you quick make certain the specified kind of a development or different constitution and simply layout it with no the necessity for advanced arithmetic.

Eco-efficient construction and building materials: Life cycle assessment (LCA), eco-labelling and case studies

Eco-efficient building and development fabrics experiences methods of assessing the environmental influence of development and development fabrics. half one discusses the applying of existence cycle evaluation (LCA) technique to construction fabrics in addition to eco-labelling. half contains case reviews exhibiting the applying of LCA method to forms of construction fabric, from cement and urban to wooden and adhesives utilized in construction.

Current research into custom milling strategies questions the traditional design-to-production workflow and suggests a “production immanent design tool” for robotic milling that allows the user to explore design variations throughout the whole design-to-fabrication process. The result is a digital tool that automatically Figure 2 Manual fabrication of dovetail joints (Baumgartner, left); Tools for machine-based fabrication of different finger joints restricted to a 90° connection (Super Carbide Tools and Porter Cable, right) 51 Robotically Fabricated Wood Plate Morphologies generates robot code inside the design environment and bypasses the typical postprocessing step in the fabrication workflow where ISO-standard NC-Code, or G-Code, is converted into robot-specific control code (Brell-Çokcan and Braumann 2010).

74, no. 3, pp. 10-17. Tobias Schwinn, Oliver David Krieg, Achim Menges Robotically Fabricated Wood Plate Morphologies Robotic prefabrication of a biomimetic, geometrically differentiated, lightweight, finger joint timber plate structure Abstract Due to their relative affordability and ease of use industrial manipulators aka robots have become increasingly common in the field of architectural experimentation and research. Specifically for timber construction, their higher degrees of kinematic freedom and fabricational flexibility, compared to established and process-specific computer numerically controlled (CNC) wood working machines, allow for new design and fabrication strategies or else the reinterpretation and re-appropriation of existing techniques — both of which offer the potential for novel architectural systems.

With their dimensions being “geometric or mathematical abstractions of form” (McGhee 1991), theoretical morphospaces have the “ability to specify nonexistent form” (McGhee 1991). This characteristic suggests a potential overlap between 4 Morphospace Concept: Transfer to Computational Design and Robotic Fabrication In computational design the generation of form is based on algorithmic processes that operate within specific variable ranges of selected parameters. Thus the design of the generative process always precedes the design of a specific result, and the designer’s focus extends beyond shape, space and structure towards the underlying generative system (Ahlquist and Menges 2011).
