Robotic Fabrication Workshop at UBC

Oliver David Krieg, Director of Technology at Intelligent City, together with Assistant Professor David Correa from University of Waterloo and Associate Professor AnnaLisa Meyboom from UBC SALA, in collaboration with the UBC Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) will hold a technical workshop on robotic fabrication in timber construction.

While many industries have made leaps and bounds in adopting highly flexible and fully automated fabrication workflows using robotics, the construction and design industry are only just starting to open the door to these technologies. Recent developments in robotics combined with more accessible design-to-fabrication tools can now offer architects, designers and fabricators unprecedented access to a new design paradigm. We are pleased to welcome two experts to share their knowledge and experience with students and practicing architects here at UBC. Using a state-of-the-art eight-axis industrial robotic work cell in the CAWP pilot manufacturing pilot, the workshop will guide participants through the unique technical and conceptual foundations that underpin robotic milling in wood through the development and construction of a full-scale fabrication project.

The workshop will be held from October 5 – October 9, 2019. For more information and registration, please follow the link to the Workshop Website.
