Robot Art Workshops – Booked Out

When: 10am-12:30pm Friday 13, 20 and 27 April

Where: Robotics Lab,Room G23, Ground Floor, Melbourne School of Design.

Cost: Free for students!

Presented by Melbourne School of Design in collaboration with Arts Programs.

Students will be inducted into the MSD Robotics Lab facilities and learn how to use an industrial robot arm to produce a series of patterned 2D line drawings on paper. A series of structured programming exercises will guide students through the process of generating a drawing code in the RAPID programming language. This code will then be tested on paper by a 6-axis industrial robot arm holding a pen. Students will then be taught how to manipulate their drawing code (i.e. morph, translate, transform, scale, orient, mirror, repeat, array) to generate additional drawing patterns.

Students participating in the workshop can expect to produce 2-3 robotic drawings, and gain a basic understanding of programming concepts for industrial robots.

Please note: this workshop series is for University of Melbourne students only. It takes place every Friday over three weeks and you need to attend all three classes. You will be meeting at the Robotics Lab, Melbourne School of Design each week at 10am, finishing at 12:30pm.
