Bio-inspired Robotic Extrusions

Bio-inspired Robotic Extrusions | Innovation, Biomimicry & Productivity | Scoop.it
The project, Robotic 6-Axis 3D Printing, is a highly-integrated installation combining robotics, 3D printing technique and interactive interface. It aims to provide the designer a digital method to eliminate the line between "Designing" and "Fabricating". In this case, architects provides more than just drawings and construction notes, however, they are capable of fabricating their work quickly and precisely by themselves.
