workshop: Compas Fab: Robotics and Digital Fabrication in Python using open source tools
In this workshop, we will explain how robotics is used on digital fabrication, in particular, how to use an industrial arm as a general-purpose tool for fabrication. We will introduce concepts of robotics including models, kinematics, planning functions and will explore the basics of ROS, the Robot Operating System.
Equipped with this knowledge, we will use COMPAS FAB, an open source python framework developed at ETH Zurich, to visualize and calculate motion plans for robotic arms and play with the execution and control of these motion plans.
