In this research, unitized predetermined size MDF bricks, are laid by a robotic arm to form a wall shape. Software used for geometry generation and parametric manipulation is Rhinoceros, in conjunction with its plug-in, Grasshopper. Software used for generating instructions for robot arm to follow is RobotStudio, with its programming language RAPID. Custom Grasshopper add-on is written in C# programming language, mediating between an architectural design program and robotic arm manipulation program.  It enables  automaticaly generation of RAPID code in accordance to the Grasshopper generated geometries of walls.
