    Abstract

    Wood and combinations of wood and plywood is the most traditional formwork in mould-based shaping of construction components. This kind of favours straight lines and sharp corners yielding in angular shape concrete building blocks. In this paper we describe a novel robotized method for manufacturing individual concrete elements with specific shapes. It is based on utilization of a digital 3D model of the target object, from which mould machining paths for the robot are stepwise created to prepare a mould made with hardened sand. Also casting of concrete blocks is described with an example.
