Description: The aim of this course was to study sequwntial assemblies of aggregate structures using 6 axis desktop robotic arms. With our team we investigated different bracing methods of linear pipes and studied their construction sequence. After generating different geometries wwe started analyzing the resulting geomeetris by dividing the structure into groups of structural elements and use the robotic arm for the fabricaiton of scaled models. The objective was to use the robot's precision for placing elements in key position while the rest of the elements could be attached by refering to pre-scored positions.
