Abstract : The paper describes a system which plans the construction of specified structures out of simple objects such as toy blocks. The planning is done using a 3-D model of the work space. A powerful control structure allows the use of such techniques as sub-assembly, temporary scaffolding, and counterweights in the construction. (Author)
