Aganetha Dyck is a sculptor, who initially worked with a range of sculptural media like wool, cigarettes and buttons. Since 1991 she has concentrated solely on collaborating with the honey bee as architect and places ordinary objects in apiary hives allowing the bees to create honeycomb to encrust the objects."
Laser machine tools can help speed product development cycles for a range of materials.
As product lifecycles shrink, there is increasing pressure on research and engineering personnel to speed the new product development cycle. A variety of technologies, from traditional CNC machining to waterjets and 3D printing, are now widely employed to enable the quick creation of 3D prototype parts directly from computer-aided design (CAD) files.
Laser machine tools are becoming another important tool in this arsenal, as they can process a wide variety of materials with high precision, repeatability, and speed, and are also relatively inexpensive to operate. Otherlab, San Francisco, is a small research and development firm that specializes in creating prototype solutions to problems that are computationally complex. One of the fabrication techniques they employ is a laser-based machine tool.
