Milled Timber Joints
« on: August 12, 2019, 06:53:39 AM »
Hello all, I'm new to the forum and i'm wondering if one of you would be able to point me in the right direction.

I'm a 6th year March student from the welsh school of architecture, we have just invested in a KR 600 FORTEC and I would like to use rhino and the Kuka Prc to mill Unique joints in timber. I have looked through the tutorials and have been unable to find one that shows how to mill from a solid block of material. What is the best way to do tellthebell?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Hello,

There was just a post about this a few minutes ago: https://forum.robotsinarchitecture.org/index.php/topic,1011.msg2838.html#msg2838
And I've attached a simple timber connection below as well.
The strength of Grasshopper is mass customization, so if you do many connections it makes sense to program it. If you have individual pieces that you mill out of big blocks of material, it makes sense to use a CAM software. From KUKA|prc you can e.g. import data from Fusion 360.

Best,
Johannes
