The first part in the process a robotic arm build the cocoon imitating the silkworms, then created 26 panels by depositing a kilometre-long silk fibre across flat polygonal metal frames, and finally the caterpillars arrived to finish the work. The team was constantly monitoring the silkworms by a tiny magnets attached to their heads. They followed their movements so they were able to notice some interesting things. For example, the worms were more willingly to work in darker areas. The team is actually highly concerned that natural processes could be more efficient than 3D printing in its current state.
