ExLab: Robotic Clay 3D Printing 2019

Semester 2, 2019

ExLab: Robotic Clay 3D Printing is an elective in the Master of Architecture program in the Melbourne School of Design, Architecture, Building & Planning. During this elective the students were involved in building 2 large scale prototypes that explored the combination of clay 3D printing and robotic fabrication.

Hyper-Ceramic Tessellation

'Hyper-Ceramic Tessellation' experiments with mass-customised construction through robotically 3D printed bricks.
The use of robotic fabrication allowed a hyperbolic surface to be panelised into unique components.
