Robotic rod bending is an ongoing research that was initiated by Maria Smigielska during her residency with AREA Institute in Paris. The research is currently being continued with Creative Robotics department at University of Arts and Design in Linz. To learn more about it please visit the website Bendilicious
scientific paper presentation during Design Modelling Symposium conference, Versaille, September 2017
“Application of Machine Learning within the integrative design and fabrication of robotic rod bending processes.”
ROBOTIC ROD BENDING FOR STRUCTURALLY OPTIMISED NON STANDARD SPACEFRAMES workshop with ENSA Paris Malaquaistutoring: Maria Smigielska, hosted by Digital Knowledge ENSA Paris-Malaquais, February 2017
jury: Philippe Morel, Pierre Cutellic, Leslie Ware
This workshop was focused on workflows designed to produce structurally optimised irregular space frames with the use of robotic arm employed for the process of non standard rod bending.
