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. Later we'll see that the constraints of using CNC routers make clear that joints which are specifically designed or adapted to the process are the most suitable. Terminology Here are some basic terms used in all the forms of joinery discussed below: Pocket: A recess cut into a piece, usually to accommodate a mating part from the other member in the joint. Groove: A slot (U shaped flat bottom cut) or channel made with the grain. Dado: A slot made across the grain. Rabbet: A slot cut parallel to, and along the edge of, a board. Traditionally Machined Wood Joints Edge-to-Edge Joints

Hardware and Software Platform for Mobile Manipulation R&D Modular Open interfaces let you use different grippers, forearms, whole arms or sensors. Modularity Specs Power to Go The 1.3 kWh battery system can run the servers and robot at full tilt for 2 hours. EtherCAT A single EtherCAT bus gives you real time, deterministic control of all your motors at 1 kHz while also providing accurate triggering of all your cameras.

Past Imperfect, The Art of Inventive Repair Chinese porcelain plate with staples, c.1710 February 28th, 2016 This early 1700s hexagonal porcelain plate was made in China during the Kangxi Period (1662-1722). It has an unglazed hexagonal rim and foot rim, with a cobalt blue underglaze garden design and floral border. It measures 9 inches in diameter. After the plate took a tumble, it was put back together using three large metal staples, aka rivets, as well as an unusual pewter plug. Whieldon-type creamware teapot, c.1780 February 20th, 2016 This Whieldon-type English pottery drum-form teapot is made of cream colored earthenware and has a brown and green tortoiseshell stained lead glaze. Sometime during its early life the original lid was broken or lost so this sturdy ivory lid was made as a replacement. This similar example has its original lid with tipped flower knop.

Home Oh No not another flippin' soapbox A couple of months ago I applied to enter the Red Bull Soapbox Derby at Alexandra Palace and as I sold the Model 'T' at Bonhams last September and the prototype of the '32 sedan is looking a little 'careworn' I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to design and build a new one. Eventually I decided on a Indianapolis single seat racer from the mid thirties, a bit 'Milleresque'. Construction technique follows the previous models. Plans will be available when I get round to it. All of the solid timber is Sapele and is obtained from recycled patio door cills from a local window company all for £10. The radiator surround is made up of several blocks glued together and carved to shape, it is squarer than the '32 grille and is therefore a bit easier to carve, much of the shaping can be done with a saw. Rick mentioned that the steering is the hardest part and he's right but after 5 different designs I think I may have stumbled on the best method.

Media Quick Links Useful Searches Recent Posts SixthSense - a wearable gestural interface (MIT Media Lab) 'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and chose the right actions to take. But arguably the most useful information that can help us make the right decision is not naturally perceivable with our five senses, namely the data, information and knowledge that mankind has accumulated about everything and which is increasingly all available online. The SixthSense prototype is comprised of a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The SixthSense prototype implements several applications that demonstrate the usefulness, viability and flexibility of the system. The current prototype system costs approximate $350 to build. P.

Ad Steps Method 1 of 3: Coating the Glass Plates 1Obtain 2 equal-sized glass plates. 12Take the titanium-dioxide-coated plate out of the dye. Method 2 of 3: Assembling the Solar Cell 1Place the carbon-coated plate onto the titanium-dioxide plate so the coatings touch. 3Wipe excess solution off the exposed portions of the plates. Method 3 of 3: Activating and Testing the Solar Cell 1Attach an alligator clip to the exposed coated sections on either side of the solar cell. 2Connect the black wire of the multimeter to the clip connected to the exposed titanium dioxide coating. 5Measure the current and voltage generated by the solar cell with the multimeter.

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 Edie Set – designed by brothers Joni and David Steiner, for their niece, Edie, when she was 18 months old. The OpenDesk project provides free downloads of designer furniture files that you can CNC. Lynton Pepper’s Wiki Booth was designed to provide extra privacy in shared workspaces. All designs on Open Desk are downloadable, but their attributes are not easily editable to adjust for different material thicknesses or spacial configurations.
