Full-time position in computational design + robotic fabrication in Gradel - Luxembourg
"Gradel lightweight is developing composite light-weight solutions for industry-leading aerospace, automotive, and end-user companies as well as research institutes and universities.
We are expanding the team with our upcoming production hall in Luxembourg, located next to a joint research lab for composites in space at the Luxembourg Institute for Science and Technology. The successful candidate will work between computational design and robotic fabrication as part of a team of structural and mechanical engineers, designers, roboticists, material scientists, and production engineers and assistants - the job environment is very collaborative and theres room for intervention, creativity, responsibility and development.
With a young international team, the work is conducted in English. Other languages are a bonus.
The position starting date is flexible (for current students interested to start upon graduation."
environment entails both research and production. Theres already a couple of computational designers from itech Stuttgart and MAS ETH on the team. The selection process can be lengthy so I advise anyone interested in starting later to send in their application already.
CV, cover letter, and portfolio are to be sent to
If anyone has questions or doubts or needs more info they can get in touch with me directly

While setting up a script that is using multiple digital outputs and I need to switch between two within 2 lines of KRL, the output src swaps the order of the $OUT variables. Doesn't happen if there's a line of KRL in between them, is there a purpose for this or a workaround?

Hey Guys!

I was fortunate enough to have the chance to visit Johannes at his Creative Robotics lab late last year and filmed a couple tutorial videos and have finally found the time to record and upload the first one - an introduction to setting up 5 axis milling with KUKA prc. You can find it here:

Hope some of you find it helpful!

Hi Guys,

I'm currently working with RhinoCAM and a KR150 - the latest version has Fusion NC import, but its not working as it would with the older 5-axis NC import. Anyone have any experience with this?

Support / Suspended KUKA
November 27, 2017, 11:31:44 AM
Hey guys,

I'm working on an inverted agilus KR10 900 for the first time that is ceiling mounted on a railing. When I enter the base data into KUKA|PRC the robot is right way up and I'm basically working upside within Rhino & grasshopper, making it near impossible - any tips on how to better calibrate base and/or sync the simulation so that everything is as though it appears in real world?

Support / Animating Simulation
August 28, 2017, 04:54:27 PM
Is there any practical way to animate the simulation? Say for example you're doing an extrusion and want to see the material with the DIG IO places to make sure its turning on and off in the right places?
