Disney Is Teaching Robots How to Sculpt with Clay

A team of researchers from Disney Research and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich have designed and built a system that allows human artists to train robots to sculpt clay with tools that allow them to emulate artistic styles.

RobotSculptor employs a six-axis robot arm with a custom sculpting tool controlled by software, which lets artists first upload a three-dimensional (3D) model of the desired rendering in clay, then define the overall look of the final sculpture and how the robot should move and carve.

The software processes the model and the artists' defined parameters to formulate a series of sculpting motions that will accurately replicate the model in the desired style.
