Traditional robot arms can reach only limited working areas that constrain the size of the workpiece they can act upon and are thus also limited in their scale of action. Flying machines are not constrained by such tight boundaries. The space that flying machines can act upon is larger than the size of the machines themselves, making it feasible for the machines to work on the structure as a whole at a 1:1 scale, thus offering architects a new framework for realizing their designs.
