Remote CNC - Subtractive Manufacturing

One of the biggest goals in our online teaching this semester was to link our students to the physical environment of our workshops. Our tutors at the chair of Individualized Production at RWTH Aachen University have therefore developed several classes and new methods of remotely teaching and controlling machines such as robots and CNC milling machines via web meetings and online platforms.

In the workshop “subtractive manufacturing” which is part of our big lecture series “Individualized Production” students had to learn the theory of the fabrication of wood joints based on the famous Japanese joint systems while developing their own designs and prototypes to be produced in the wood workshop at RWTH Aachen Faculty of Architecture.

We would like to thank our 128 bachelor students for their engagement and excitement in these hard times!
