Robotic Fabrication of Non-Orthogonal Walls

Experimenting with parametric tools that simulate brick stacking, to enable me to assemble non-uniform brick walls using 6-axis robots.

That's certainly the next problem to solve Arthur.

A second robot with a nozzle 'effector' could layer mortar before each brick is placed. Easy to simulate in GH, but in reality probably quite hard to get a uniform consistency and thickness to the mortar when the machine is so start-stop...

Cool! Great job Jeg. Looking forward to seeing the robot doing that. I wonder if it can place the mortar too? :)
