RAK Fine Arts Festival beckons culture lovers
Gulf News online
The Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival (RAKFAF) that is on until April 3, offers a peek into the fabulous spread of artworks that are being showcased in the emirate. Anand Raj OK portrays a few artists whose works are on display at the venues
Robotically bent spatial metal knots: re-interpreting spatial knotting through robotic tube bendingAcadia
Lee-Su Huang and Gregory Thomas Spaw
The studies presented in this project employ workflows that enable multi-planar robotic bending of metal tubes with high accuracy and repeatability using a six-axis industrial robot with a custom end-effector and external two-axis positioner (Huang, Spaw, and Kalo 2022). This enables quick fabrication and assembly of complex spatial tubular configurations without the need for jigs or falsework support.

Gregory Thomas Spaw and Lee-Su Huang
This is a process-based design research project that reimagines traditional manual tube bending techniques with the precision and efficiency of digital formative fabrication. Leveraging the positional accuracy of industrial robots using custom tools to bend and interweave metal tubes in geometrically complex and spatially precise loops, the research follows a lineage of projects one and two, exploring the application of robotic bending of linear elements, primarily in solid-core rod form three.
