Robotic Hot Wire Cutting

This assignment introduces the hot wire tool for foam cutting. The students are asked to operate with random numbers for the creation of a large population of forms obtained by slicing foam cubes with the hot wire cutter. These forms can be considered proto-architecture scale models informed by a digitally programmed sequence of fabrication operations.
