In this study a user-friendly model is developed for architects and designers without advanced programming skills who need to operate their projects in a real-time workflow from parametric design to robotic fabrication. Based on the implemented network capabilities in proposed model, not only one but also multiple robotic arms can interact and collaborate with design model data. In the network features of this model, a mediated interface is inserted between design software and robot interface that lets the user choose different parametric modeling software as the origin of the workflow. A practical experiment is developed in this research to validate the accuracy of the proposed model.
