Seashell-Inspired Robotic Fabrication
Rhino - Grasshopper - HAL Robotics  RobotStudio - ABB Robot - 3D Printing 
This project explores the intricacies of mollusk shell geometry and its application in robotic fabrication. By translating complex spiral shell patterns into 3D models using computational tools, we developed innovative printing techniques with 6-axis robotic arms.
This research aims to revolutionize architectural design by leveraging principles from nature to optimize 3D printing efficiency without the need for scaffolding.
To enhance precision and safety in the fabrication process, we devised a unique 3D visualization method. A compact LED spotlight mounted on the robot’s head traced its movements through space. We then captured this light path with a long-exposure camera, effectively creating a luminous “ghost” of the robot’s trajectory.
