Adaptive Clay Formations

Cover image for Adaptive Clay Formations

Thesis project where a robotic clay aggregation method developed at MAS DFAB was further explored and refined. The project resulted in a 3.2 m long and 1.2 m high wall segment built using a six axis industrial robot mounted on a movable platform, and built with the robot re-localized three times.

In this project we refined robot end effector, we experimented with feedback driven fabrication and trajectory planning for the robotic arm.
