Summer School Robotic Wire Cutting

Robotic Wire Cutting, Swisspearl® Summerschool 2015

Robotic Wire Cutting is a two-week summer school that focuses on novel digital design and fabrication methods and their implementation in 1: 1 scale robot-built facade structures. The different façade elements were produced using the cement composite Swisspearl® or by lamination of robotic-cut polystyrene blocks.

The speed and efficiency of the cooperative production processes using two industrial robots and the resulting extended geometrical possibilities as well as the implementation directly in the production facilities of Eternit (Schweiz) AG allowed a unique investigation of the architectural potential of this automated cutting process.
