Project Description

HUM[erus] is a personal, digital fabrication tool. It is a low-cost, portable robotic arm, with changing head tools, capable of performing basic digitally supported processes, such as 3d printing, laser cutting, drawing and gripping. It measures 9x9x35 cm, while the corresponding workspace volume is 40x40x30 cm.

HUM[erus] serves as a personal tool for architects and designers, who will be able of using it in their everyday studying and professional design activities. It is conceived as a user-friendly device, which can be easily assembled (assembling time of 30′), meaning that a plywood surface of 40x40x0.4 cm is capable of including all its constituent parts. HUM[erus] has been developed in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens – School of Architecture and FabLab Athens.
