EspressoCAD: A System to Support the Design of Dynamic Structure Configurations
    CoDe Lab Working Paper 2004
    abstract:
    EspressoCAD is a computer assisted design system created to support the design of structures composed of our modular robotic building blocks, Espresso Blocks. EspressoCADís interface allows designers to manipulate individual blocks. By recording these manipulations designers can create actions to control the behavior of groups of blocks. The current version is implemented as an AutoCAD plugin written in Visual Basic.
