Draw-0-Matic 4000

The SCI-Arc robot lab is a research facility located within the Southern California Institute of architecture. It serves as a laboratory that opens up a platform for experimenting with the relationship between traditional architectural techniques and robotic fabrication techniques.

The drawing apparatus was designed to explore the rotational extents of a Staubli robot. We were interested in exploiting the moments when the robot reached its maximum rotational angle and had to reset to its null. A series of prototypes were developed and fabricated throughout the semester.
