Robots to Make Exhibition hall with Interlocking Timber

Exhibition Hall 1

In Germany, the Exhibition Hall Landesgartenschau is said to be the first construction to have its primary framework manufactured solely from interlocking wood sections made by bots. The hall looks exactly as a peanut and contains plywood section that is about 2 inches thick.  The arrangement employs 7, 1000 finger joints that are interlocked to make a shell.

With all the principles regarding biomimetics – the developer team took motivation from practically forms natural biological formations and used in the exhibition hall. In cases like this, the association used the urchin’s skeletal frame of CaCO3 plates (connected by interlocking shelf) as an outline across the edge for finger joints.

With a robot it is very easy to profile timber across a number of planes; this team declares they could actually develop all the sections in only 3 days and put the entire framework together in 4 days. It was accomplished by determining the shape of all sections on CAD software, and then encoding the bot to cut the sections.

Consequently, the sectional production precision is said to be in only 0. 03 inches and that is excellent for any sort of construction. With this accuracy ratio a perfect finger-joint interconnection is possible.
