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.

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.

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.

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.

Railway Iron Anvil : I probably shouldn't have done this before I polished it up, but I decided to 1. Drill a hole in the anvil 2. Drill some mounting holes - in hindsight, bigger holes and using better bolts would have probably looked a lot better than tek screws..... I then decided to take inspiration from another Instructable I found ( and a couple of others I found on the net to finish things off and provide a bit more flexibility. I mounted the anvil in a tree trunk together with another bit of iron mounted vertically - the vertical iron is welded to a scrap of steel to provide more fixing points to the tree trunk. I found that the vertically mounted iron is much quieter when being hit. Hope this is useful to someone. 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. The manufacturing process takes 2 hours.

Download all the files for this chair here and open the 3D model with a CAD (computer-aided design) application. Reed Young I built this chair at the Visible Futures Lab of the School of Visual Arts in New York City. (Photograph by Reed Young) If you're working from our files, you'll see I've completed the following software steps for you. All set? Now for the fun part: the assembly. Download This Chair
Tout simplement géniale, cette artiste qui fabrique des peluches à partir de dessins d'enfants L'idée a germé dans la tête de Wendy Tsao lorsque l'enseignant de son fils lui a demandé d'apporter un jouet sans danger à l'école ; son artiste de maman a alors décidé de lui en fabriquer un à partir de l'un de ses dessins. Depuis, Wendy Tsao en a fait son activité. Sur son site Internet, elle propose des peluches personnalisées, réalisées à partir des dessins d'enfants. Gros coup de coeur pour ce travail ! Ce chat musclé Ce cyclope à la tignasse généreuse Ce ninja bleu Ce chat multicolore Ce lézard Basiliscus plumifrons Cette souriante créature Cette sirène Cette bestiole-cyclope Ce porcinet Ou encore ce petit monstre à trois têtes
The MicroSlice V1 | A tiny Arduino laser cutter The MicroSlice uses Grbl v0.8 for motion control. Grbl converts G-Code into commands that the EasyDriver stepper motor controllers understand. We need another program to send the G-Code to Grbl, for this I'll be using Zapmaker's Grbl Controller v3.0. Before you can begin you will need the Arduino IDE, available from the Arduino website. Make sure your Laser Diode is not connected to the power lines while you are configuring your MicroSlice. Grbl's wiki shows you how to flash the pre-compiled Grbl hex file onto your Arduino. For those of you who have a Raspberry Pi, as I do, you'll be pleased to know that you can control the MicroSlice using your Pi! We'll need to generate some G-Code. Before we can use our new G-Code we'll need to configure Grbl to use the stepper motors and end-stops. You can use either the Arduino IDE Serial Terminal (CTRL + Shift + M) to send commands to Grbl. The settings we are interested in are $0 & $1. We calculate it thus; (20 x 8) / 3 = 53.333333333 6 | Save
