The Technology

Stone carving is done either manually for design of special features or using repeatable CNC process that does not allow unique design of each stone. Manual carving is a lost craft and it is very rare and expensive to apply for unique design of building and surfaces.

Using a learning decision making system that can reproduce the manual carving capabilities unique carving can be done with no manual labor.

Advantages

  • Unique carving for design and structural needs
  • Cost effective
  • No manual labor
  • Safe

Applications and Opportunities

  • Unique design of building and surfaces
  • Rescue missions
  • Cleaning or dismantling hazardous materials and ammunition
