This paper presents a show case of aesthetic robot design considering technical function constraints and using engineering performance analysis method. First a project goal was determined based on a robot aesthetic analysis. Decision matrices were used to evaluate the aesthetic satisfaction in both component and assembly levels of the design while the scores were assigned subjectively through panel discussion. 3D printing technique was used to get the physical models for rapid verification of the design and to facilitate the design evolution. Examples are given for robot component design as well as the overall evaluation of the robot aesthetics.
