Osteobotics is an automated robotic fabrication system that employs phase-changing materials and the precision of a robotic arm for repetitive actions. This system creates a continuous lattice structure that can be melted and recycled or left to biodegrade. We programmed the material parameters for structural performance and extruded structural beams between single-material nodes. The customization of the robotic arm’s end effectors was crucial for achieving the desired material angles and pull length. The research introduces a reusable, biodegradable, and temporary architecture that minimizes manual assembly and reduces construction time.
