What I learned from my research:

• Designs stemming from material understanding and hands-on making will be more informed.

• There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements

• Roboforming is an efficient method for fabricating small batch sizes of unique parts.

• There does not exist a software for Roboforming.


• Design and Implement a Process Chain for Roboformingat CarnegieMellon’sDfabLab.

• Utilize this Process Chain to experiment and learnmore about Roboforming.

• Output an best-use example of an application of Roboforming in an architectural context.
