Abstract
This paper is part of the present project targeting to use digital tools for masonry construction. The research is based on the software simulating brick vaulting with herringbone pattern. By means of cooperation between CAD software and scripting code, it is aimed to provide a novel production optimizes construction process of complex vault forms that could not easily provided manually.
