In generally situation, maker will using the prototyping to solve their problem and mistake. However, if they need to try the digital fabrication to complete their deign, it will be embarrassment. Because they need to spend more time to communicate with the manufacturing how to complete the design. In this paper we use the “seeing-moving-seeing” model to combine the design tools and reduce the problem of communicate with other people. By using this method we can more easier to understand the different of the finish product and prototyping. Using the robot arm to combine the design, manufacturing and fabrication tool it can increase the digital fabrication’s special value. Finally, our research will using design computing connecting the digital interface and the machine to communicate.
