The design of this project was generated algorithmically though a Grasshopper script that maps sticks of a given dimension to a lofted surface, which is a result of two circles rotating against each other. The structure is able to hold its shape by intersecting two of these stick mappings and creating an endless "weave" of sticks closing the loop on its self. The tooling was also created in Grasshopper using a custom script that I wrote to find drive geometry generated by a notch or hole in the stick and outputs the robot tool paths for the given stick in the form of target planes. The plugin HAL was then used to translate those target planes into robot code.
