title ROBOTRACK - Linking manual and robotic design processes by motion-tracking
source Fioravanti, A, Cursi, S, Elahmar, S, Gargaro, S, Loffreda, G, Novembri, G, Trento, A (eds.), ShoCK! - Sharing Computational Knowledge! - Proceedings of the 35th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, 20-22 September 2017, pp. 651-660
summary This study investigates design opportunities fostered by fabrication processes, ex-ploring manual and robotic forming. It links handcraft and digital fabrication techniques by implementing a motion capture system. It suggests physical prototyping as a novel form of design research, operating in the dynamic field between human capabilities, machine skills, and material behavior. This paper presents a series of experimental case studies created in a seminar taught by the author at Graz University of Technology. In this course, students con-duct tactile experiments, forming panels by hand and by robot, guided by the material behav-ior and reaction. Thereby, they explore the creation of architectural form in a dynamic inter-play between human, machine and material. Movement and speed of hand forming proce-dures are recorded into digital data, and then converted into machine code, driving a 6-axis industrial robotic arm. By using the same set-up for manual and robotic forming, both pro-cesses are relatable.
