Complex Acoustic Panels  is an ongoing project as part of my thesis in  CITAstudio  and will be presented at the  KADK   afgang  examination this summer. This research involves the creation of site-specific acoustic treatments. These treatments are fabricated and tested using multi-axis robotic arms. Using a hot wire cutter and carving tools mounted to a robotic arm I can create free-form acoustic panels. This has involved the creation of specific robot arm end-effectors for this purpose, a further description of the hot wire cutting tool can be found  here .     I have also created a new testing methodology which uses a microphone attached to the robot arm to quantify the performance of these site-specific acoustic treatments. This provides a more accessible way to test panels post-fabrication and helps to create a closer loop between the fabrication and testing.
