At Nike’s Advanced Innovation Center in Beaverton, the Oregon Dragon Bench was installed. The sculpture was made by MX3D using its Robotic Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) technology. At Nike’s world headquarters, the bench is part of the new LeBron James Building. Due to MX3D’s robotic 3D printing technology, the Oregon Dragon Bench pushes the limits in terms of sculptural presence and size. A “structural gradient” has been incorporated into the bench that is both structurally useful and aesthetically pleasing. A structure that densifies where structural stability is needed and opens up where weight can be reduced is called a…


As the global automotive industry faces one of the most significant transition periods in recent history, ABB is at the forefront of developing smart manufacturing technologies. As a result of the shift, more robots will be used in conjunction with other technologies, such as autonomous mobile robots (AMR). This will enable ABB’s automotive customers to optimise the distribution of components in their facilities and connect modular, scalable and integrated production cells, such as PixelPaint, to ensure the flexibility needed to meet changing demand levels. To develop the world’s first robot-painted art car, ABB Robotics partnered with two leading artists. Advait…


Red Bull commissioned Clemens Neugebauer and Martin Kölldorfer to create a large-scale sculpture for its race track in Spielberg, Austria, in 2010. The sculpture was inspired by an earlier idea to build a 23-metre-high bull leaping over the end of the curved track, which was discarded due to environmental concerns. As a result, in 2010 the notion of a Red Bull landmark resurfaced, with the aim of creating a sculpture large enough to be seen by passing motorists from the neighbouring motorway, a distance of about two kilometres. After lengthy negotiations with the client, the final design was decided on…


A camera robot can film a movie scene dozens of times in exactly the same way, or handle precise and repetitive special effects movements. Robots are already appearing in applications such as entertainment stadiums and interactive point-of-sale sites. Consider a group of robots that are designed to follow the operator’s commands, performing slow or fast camera movements depending on the needs of the film production. These robots can eliminate the need for human labour by completing all tasks accurately and automating the shooting process. Set designers can employ robots, as they can print 3D models and carve patterns for them,…


The Design + Technology LAB at Ryerson University. A robotic arm is waiting to make art with you inside his workshop. This specific automaton will operate behind a glass panel, which will make it even friendlier. The members of this “Assembly Line” project. Jonathon Anderson, Alda Escareño, Adrian Kenny, Daniella Muraca, David Robert, Alexander Verni, Luigi Zaccagnini, Orit Zewge-Abubaker. Initially, a photograph of your miniature creation is projected on an interior wall among sketches created by other visitors. Meanwhile, the robot will replicate each of the user-submitted drawings and turn them into 3D visualizations that will be displayed one by…


Nagami, in collaboration with designer Ross Lovegrove, created the Robotica table-stool hybrid using ABB’s robotic arm and software. Using the arm gave designers more vertical design freedom, allowing them to strike the best balance between material usage and production time. Nagami is showcasing the incredible versatility of 3D printing through his innovative, groundbreaking, and research-filled work. Spanish design studio explores new ways of producing furniture and environments. Founded by Manuel and Miguel Ángel Jiménez García and Ignacio Viguera Ochoa. Manuel Jiménez García, co-founder of Nagami, was interviewed by DesignWanted to discover more about his creative techniques, 3D printing and how…


There are now robots capable of expertly constructing specialized carpentry tasks. Robots may one day prove to be invaluable assistants, particularly for newcomers to the workforce. Users can determine what type of furniture they want to make using a computer-aided design (CAD) system, including size, sturdiness, and overall aesthetics. As is the case with MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has developed robots that can build unique woodworking projects. Like the AutoSaw robotic technology, it aims to bridge the gap between mechanical build quality and distinctive customization. AutoSaw and is made up of two parts: design software and…


A TV commercial can take dozens, or hundreds, of shots to perfect just a few seconds of film. In a few hours with the help of robotic technology they can produce an image with a robotic arm grabbing a camera and following an exact path. According to a photo and video production company that started using one to produce shots and angles that would be difficult to replicate manually, smart robot technology has gone beyond cinematography and now has a place in photography as well. However, cinema robots are still out of reach for many creators due to the high…


Robotic machining technology has progressed to where it positions a thoughtful alternative to metal cutting applications in more outdated machining centres. With the modern robotics equipment and associated software, automation providers and robotic system integrators are gaining some traction using robots in several material-removal requests formerly done only with machine apparatuses. Traditional machining mechanisation has a lot of difficulties when you have various varied operations. But robot machining could make simpler your life. Below, I’m going to share how robot machining can simplify your life. How to Automate Varied Machining Tasks with a Robot? It looks like you are stuck….


Filippo Tincolini and Giacomo Massari, the founders of Robotor, take marble sculpture to another level. After the complexity of many of their works, they were driven to integrate new technologies and industrial robots into their work to optimize their traditional technique and merge it with cutting-edge technology, robotics and 3D digital, achieving an improvement in the manufacturing and quality of their works. they have even been able to simplify tasks. The notion of machine-produced marble sculptures was created “out of necessity,” according to Giacomo Massari, co-founder of Robotor. Robotor hopes its diamond-fingered robotic arm helpers will preserve both the tradition…
