Knitting with robots (intricacies)

The project is based on the intricacies of knots in weaving and understanding of motion path of robots in creation of each knot.
The challenge in robotic weaving is creating the knot by using 6 axis robots. Knots are the basic motion of weaving that ties materials together and create different pattern and texture. The challenge of knot creation has been resolved by designing an end arm tool which gives us the opportunity to turn around the string without any limitation in the number of rotation. This creates different textures according to the design pattern.
