This paper addresses both the architectural, conceptual motivations and the tools and techniques necessary for the digital production of an architecture of volume. The robotic manufacturing techniques of shaping volumetric materials by hot wire and abrasive wire cutting are discussed through a number of recent projects. A comparative analysis between milling and hotwire cutting is presented and a number of case studies and tool development studies are considered. Finally, the specifics of toolpath generation for robotic wire cutting are introduced
