In the future, robots are going to construct all kinds of things for us. Disney researchers have come up with a framework that explores the idea of using robots to construct structurally sound metal frames. It involves automated bar bending, welding, and cutting to come up with complex shapes.
Designing Robotically-Constructed Metal Frame Structures
As the researchers explain:
aligning frames with structurally-favorable orientations, and decomposing models into fabricable units, we make the fabrication process scale-invariant, and frames globally align in an aesthetically-pleasing and structurally-informed manner.
