Abstract

The paper finds its roots in our previous research, which explored the application of robotic technologies for the fabrication of traditional Chinese timber joints and the reinterpretation of the Dougong joint (bucket arch joint) by using parametric tools and robotic fabrication techniques. It investigates which existing robotic technologies are suitable for the automated assembly and production of the Dougong joint through reviewing relevant research. The paper systematically reviews and comparatively analyses ten articles filtered through 1,756 publications searched by using the keywords ‘timber’, ‘digital fabrication’, and ‘robot’ in the databases Scopus, CumlnCAD, ScienceDirect, Engineer village and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). Our findings include a comparative analysis chart evaluating workflows, tools and technologies on their suitability for the robotic reinterpretation of the Dougong as well as the proposal of a novel design to fabrication workflow for that particular purpose.
