The Digital in Architecture II, ETH Zurich, 2018
Elective Course
Subject of the course is robotic fabrication in architecture. Through exercises, basic skills such as robotic control are being taught and applied to a small design and fabrication project. The course teaches how to develop a simple fabrication and material aware digital design process linked to a robotic fabrication procedure.

Students learn to use industrial robots such as the Universal Robot UR5 and understand basic principles of robotic control. At the end of the course, students are able to translate simple design ideas into robotic fabrication processes, which they can run independently. Furthermore students deepen their skills in Python and Grasshopper, which they have acquired in the course “The Digital in Architecture 1”.
