KUKA weaving carbon fibre / Process design of weaving

KUKA weaving carbon fibre
KUKA weaving carbon fibre

The project aims to design the process, a fully working technology that allows one to make any carbon construction built around a supporting structure with a robot. Carbon fibre is coated with resin while weaving. All the tools were modelled and 3D printed. Resulting stitches taken from a Polish traditional handcraft called "Snutki" are just an example of possible usage. The program guiding the robot is flexible and generates a different outcome depending on the input points.
This project represents the crossing point between a number of topics such as: technology and tradition, mechanisation and handmaking, imperfection and mass production.
