Through the use of Adobe Illustrator, students with little to no experience in robotics are able to create digital artwork or create a machine that will be performed with the ProtoLAB’s collaborative robot.
In this project, students will produce individual works which will link the digital and physical environment. Working with various artifacts and processes, the students will use illustrator as a bridging software, between traditional CAD software and our laser cutters in order to utilise the robot.
In an emerging world of advanced manufacturing, this process provides a valuable introduction to a highly sought-after skill.
