Robust Design Workshop on EmbodimentHow to design location schemes and part to part interfaces in a robust manner.
This year‘s Robust Design Day offers you the chance to participate in a hands-on Robust Design experience raising the question of an embodiment design procedure to systematically detail the layout, geometries, materials, etc. of conceptual solutions in a robust manner. Using the example of a Mini Trigger Glue Gun, the workshop is designed as a series of guided tutorials, exercises as well as structured discussions to encourage knowledge sharing through working together on a common problem. The aim is to provide a platform to discover the state of the art in robust design, to learn from each others’ techniques and approaches and to discuss challenges faced.
We hope that you will enjoy the workshop and look forward to interesting
results/discussions that help us all to get a deeper insight into Robust Design and related topics.
For full engagement of participants, the workshop is built around the example of a Mini Trigger Glue Gun. The participants are provided with a sample of the glue gun, corresponding CAD models, and a workbook which is the central document of the workshop. The workbook summarizes all information relevant for the exercises and is published open source. For information on the solutions to the workshop exercises, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
