Digital Fabrication for Designers: CNC Cut Wood Joinery This topic discusses the design and cutting of wood joinery using CNC routers. In learning about CNC cut joinery it is well worth looking at the types of wood joints that have been cut with traditional tools (saws, chisels, tablesaws, bandsaws, etc.) for many years. This will help develop an understanding of the use conditions of the joints, and to visualize some solutions that have been created to deal with them. 'Whodunnit' awareness test: How many changes can you spot? The clip initially appears to be a scene from a cliched murder mystery, with a trench coat–wearing detective interviewing the maid, butler and lady of the house over the death of Lord Smithe, who lies sprawled on the drawing room floor. But the sketch is merely the premise for a test designed to show just how bad we are at noticing things that we're not looking for – including on the roads. After the detective names the killer the scene is replayed, this time filmed from a camera that captures all the film crew's out-of-shot manoeuvrings.

Papier Machine – Expedition into the invisible aesthetics and materiality of electronics / @rpluvina Created by Marion Pinaffo & Raphaël Pluviange, ‘Papier Machine’ is a booklet gathering a family of 13 paper-made electronic toys ready to be cut, coloured, folded, assembled or torn. Screen-printed with special inks that have different electric properties, these toys aim to reveal what hides behind our machines’ magic black boxes : a world of materials, shapes, colors, stories and even smell. “We start this exploration by diving into a world that is both familiar and mysterious: the microcosmos enclosed within our everyday electronic devices. Looked at closely, printed circuit cards become cityscapes, and our phones’ components resemble little creatures. Papier Machine (Paper Machine) invites us to meet with these ghosts in the shell.In the electronic tropics, paper mutates. On this printed land, we stride along the silkscreened silver paths and their networks of batteries and connected roots, we pick bunches of metamorphosis and plant a projection space where intuition leads the game.

LIFT architects - Home - [Andrew Payne] It has been entirely too long since I last posted but that should change over the coming weeks as I've been working on some really amazing projects. To kick things off, I thought I'd share a one week project that I developed to create a dimple halftone pattern on a surface using a custom build Grasshopper definition which writes the all of the G-code (for a ShopBot CNC mill) in real-time. I'll talk more about the fabrication setup below, but first... a little about the concept.
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.

CNC Software: CAM Software, Simulators, Editors and Utilities CNC Software: Digital Tooling for CNC Why Digital Tooling? When I was learning to be a manual machinist, people used to say, "Budget as much for tooling as you do the machine." Danged if they weren't right. In fact, if you wanted to be well tooled up (and what machinist wouldn't?) Build Your Own Beautiful Flat-Pack Chair I built this Eames-like chair without touching a single traditional woodworking tool. No, it's not because I'm some kind of Luddite. I just love the immediacy of rendering a chair with 3D modeling software and then cutting out the parts with a CNC machine. Everything snaps together like flat-pack furniture, but without the cheesy fasteners—just mechanically sound through tenons and lap joints.
