2018 FALL & 2019 SUMMER

Alongside the Robotics Facility Specialist, Guy Gardner, I helped run two semester-long Robotic Fabrication courses at the School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape. My responsibilities included running tutorials for basic ABB RAPID code programming, TACO and Scorpion plugins for Grasshopper (GH), facilitating communications between Universal robots (UR10e) and Industrial ABB robots (IRB 2600), providing conceptual feedback on students' ideas and helping in the development of their GH definitions, problem solving collision, material, and environmental complications, and offering additional assistance during production. Students were required to work individually or in teams to develop concepts, toolpathing, 1:1 prototypes, as well as the end-of-arm tooling necessary for their production. The Fall 2018 course
