Abstract: This paper presents a decentralised approach to automatic construction of user-defined three-dimensional structures inspired by naturally occurring cells' characteristics. The proposed system enables guaranteed construction of user-specified structures by taking a high-level specification as the required input. This paper exploits a multitude shape formation method of simplistic modular agents which can self-organise their positions. This paper describes evolutionary morphogenesis to construct an arbitrary structure by swarms of multi-agents which are identical, independent, autonomous modular agents that can build three dimensional structures by means of developmental methods.
