Konrad Wachsmann's Shift from Product to Process
This research project employs a singular self-built three-axis gantry-based machine as a base for modification and testing of processes toward the development and definition of a universal building machine (U.B.M.).
This machine is derived from research of the Local Orientation Manipulator’s (L.O.M.) seven degrees of freedom, 20-in. sphere of motion, and ability to participate in simulations of building assembly.
As prefigured and defined by the work of Konrad Wachsmann, a UBM 1) processes material, 2) handles material, 3) fabricates components, and 4) assembles system components.
In addition, universality further defines it as efficient, unskilled, mobile, scaleless, and flexible/adaptable.
