3D Scanning services and Robotics Builds Barn Roof

We need our best for the fight using 3d scanning

Unless you were born in a barn, then you might be interested to know that a new barn roof was born. I’m talking about a structure that is not just some run of the mill barn roof. This is a hi-tech 3D scanned robot built roof even though it looks kind of like a rough-cut throw together. It’s basically a storage barn with a hi-tech touch. 3D scanning services has learned some carpentry and is now picking up some architectural skills thanks five students at the Architectural Institution in London.

3D scanning services knows Precision

We have all seen one or two movies where all A.I. machines turn rogue and start killing humans. Robots have been given a bad rap, and Star Trek along with Will Smith were no small accomplices in that either. But now, we have found a way to channel that rebellion in a more wholesome way. As mentioned above, a while back some European students employed a bot to learn some carpentry. It was not just some simple Woodshop class, either. This robot was able to perform something that we humans would never take the time to do. We like systemized ways of getting things done without all of the complication. We like standardized parts and methods. The same things goes with constructing roofs. We desire straight boards and standard fittings. It is for that reason that we refuse to utilize tree limbs with forks and bends. They are deemed useless for building frames. This is where 3D scanning services and robotics become the handyman.

Here is the game plan with 3D scanning services

These students seized 3D scanning services and robotics by the horns. They were able to build a roof using large forked tree limbs that would have otherwise tossed aside. Each of the awkward shaped limbs were 3D scanned. They were made to fit using some type of specifically designed software for the task. The robot arm made the branches fit by doing the cutting. Doing things this way was a break from the traditional way of using only standardized parts to build a roof. It means that a lot of timber that would normally be deemed as unusable with this method become usable. Using 3D scanning services and robotics can save a lot of resources.

3D scanning services scores a win

The project turned out to be a slam dunk. Firstly, it accomplished its immediate task of creating a shelter to store wood chips to fuel a campus boiler. The second thing that it did was display what potential there is for technology to be harnessed for architecture and building. It spurs us on to explore avenues to exploit resources in their natural state to create structures which can save time and money. This, of course, wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the expertise of a wood craftsman from Dorset named Jack Draper, who pioneered the project.

It seems that 3D scanning services and robots are an effective team. Maybe that is all that is needed to suppress the killer robot revolution. We should no longer think of promoting them to the management of peacekeeping.  Maybe all that they need is a good job and feeling of satisfaction at the end a long hard day. Robots need to stick to some good old manual labor like carpentry. I doubt, though, if Hollywood will be writing any scripts on that narrative though.
