source ACADIA 19:UBIQUITY AND AUTONOMY [Proceedings of the 39th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-578-59179-7] (The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, Austin, Texas 21-26 October, 2019) pp. 198-207
summary The strength of general-purpose fabrication tools is in the ease of repeatability and reconfiguration of geometry. However, there are some material processes that are difficult to directly integrate into fabrication processes with these machines. In particular, the common methods of material configuration through horizontal deposition in 3D printing exclude other types of material processes such as casting. This project demonstrates an additive manufacturing technique paired with a design input process for generating a wall of customized cast bricks. Taking advantage of the precision and adaptability of a robotic arm, the fabrication process pairs this general-purpose tool with a specialized auxiliary device to create variation in concrete casts.
