title Decorative Robotic Plastering - A Case Study of Real-Time Human Machine-Collaboration in High-Skill Domains
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 383-388
summary This paper explores hybrid digital / physical workflows in the building trades, a high-skill domain where human dexterity and craft can be augmented by the precision and repeatability of digital design and fabrication tools. In particular the paper highlights a project where historic techniques of decorative plastering are extended through live motion capture of a drawing implement, information rich visualization projected in the space of fabrication, and custom robotic tooling to generate free-form running moulds. This workflow allows designers and craftspeople to quickly explore patterns through free-hand sketch, test ideas with shaded previews, and seamlessly produce physical parts using robotic collaborators.
