Watch this Adapted Kuka Robot Weave Carbon Fibre

Student Basia Dżaman for her graduation project, during the last year of Industrial Design studies at the School Of Form in Poznań has created 3D printed parts to adapt a Kuka robot to weave carbon fibre.

All the tools used on the KUKA robot were modelled in Rhino and 3D printed. The Resulting stitches created by the carbon fibre are taken from a traditional Polish handcraft called “snutki” and is just an example of how to use the technology. The program leading the robot is flexible and generates a different outcome depending on the input points.
