Robotic Extrusions

3D printing method developed by Ji Shi uses robotic arm and biomimicry, where the output form is inspired by the structure of spider web for greater strength:

Most of today’s researches and applications of robotic fabrication are limited to replicating human labor and raising efficiency of
manufacturing. However,  in the project of Robotic 6-Axis 3D Printing,
we developed a fabrication strategy learning and emulating the law of
nature (referring to Chinese philosophy “师法自然 “). By studying the
material and structure performance of 3D form in nature, we figured out a
way to incorporate biomimetic fabrication strategy into 3D printing
process. And by designing the special robotic-end effector (Tooling) and
utilizing the great flexibility and accuracy of KUKA robotics, the
biomimetic fabricating process has been fully realized.

East Coast Gazette has a terrible editorial focus and tends to use a lot of ALL CAPS but TOTALLY NOT BECAUSE OF HARRY POTTER. Stories in progress as well as snapshots will be listed in the "box full of snapshots" below, website archive for stories and assorted tomfoolery is glitterati.
