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.

WikiVault A computer render of the WikiVault system at night WikiVault is my proposal in response to Brief 02_Template (the details of which can be found under brief). It utilises a reciprocal frame structure created from flat sheet material that can be assembled rapidly on site with only the aid of a jig for lifting. The system is a very efficient use of material particularly owing to the fact that no formwork is necessary in the assembly of the vaulting structure. TetraBox Light Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim.

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. KCAM works great in Windows 98. Mach3 has a HUGE support group and bypasses some of the timing issues of the Windows environment. TurboCNC is a great piece of software, if you don't want to visualize your tool paths in real time and are comfortable in DOS.

Objets by Seung-Yong Song Chairs that double up as ladders, clotheshorses, shelves or lamps are part of a collection of furniture by Korean designer Seung-Yong Song. The first eight chairs each integrate a piece of furniture commonly found in a bedroom, but can also be grouped together to form a bed.
