From SketchUp to CNC Fabrication This video series shows how to get from CAD, to CAM, to a CNC fabricated product. The tools we will be using are SketchUp for CAD, CamBam for CAM, Mach3 for gcode reading/CNC control, and a CNC router (greenBull from BuildYourCNC.com) for part fabrication. Keep in mind during this tutorial that the particular hardware/software tools, materials and application of these instructions will vary from person-to-person, region-to-region, and project-to-project. You may be using a different CAD program, CAM program, CNC control program, CNC machine, material sizes and fastening methods, and you will likely be fabricating a wide variety of products in the end.
CNC Joinery Notebook: Update 1 For about ten years, I have been collecting various clever ways of cutting flat stock to design 3D shapes that slot together in space. Back in April, I posted a long, rambling brain-dump from this personal file under the title “CNC Joinery Notebook.” If you pick up a copy of MAKE’s just-released Volume 33, you’ll find a much-polished version of that article on p.59. Since then, a few more patterns have come to my attention, and I thought the publication of MAKE’s new issue was a good opportunity to share them with you. Three Basic Approaches The design vocabulary of CNC panel construction is evolving rapidly. CNC Panel Joinery Notebook I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that today make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy. Now, the world is full of people designing models, project enclosures, sculpture, furniture, and all kinds of other cool stuff to be assembled from parts made on laser cutters and CNC routers. I keep expecting a definitive book or website to emerge that covers the “bag of tricks” in an organized way, but so far, I haven’t found it. Maybe this article can serve as a jumping-off point.

KCam, EMC2, Mach3, TurboCNC,and other CNC related software links. The fall-out of the DOT-COM bust has brought CNC to the hobbyist. Couple the availability of low/no cost CNC control software, low-cost integrated circuitry, and the tons of high-end hardware now found on eBay: and for the first time in history, CNC is attainable to the hobby market. We prefer EMC2 on Linux and Ubuntu, but there are others available for those who are shy.
Open CNC Furniture Open design isn’t just for machines and electronics, With the rise in popularity of CNC routers and laser cutters, there is now an expanding open furniture movement. The result is a fabrication movement where designs are shared globally but fabricated locally and parametric design enables infinite configuration for personal fabrication. Every design featured in this article is available for download. Lean Desk – Original OpenDesk, an open-source project commissioned by Mint Digital. Open Desk The future is here at Design Museum / toothpicnations Main and bottom left: The future is here exhibition designed by by Lucienne Roberts+ and drMM; Bottom right: KUKA Robotics' AGILUS robots Work has kept me quite busy lately, but I finally managed to visit "The future is here: a new industrial revolution" exhibition at the Design Museum on its last day at the last hours! We have all witnessed the industrial revolution ( I mean at the 2012 Olympics Opening ceremony directed by Danny Boyle), and this exhibition focused on the possibility of a new one based on the past, current industry trends and technology.
