Forget 3D printing—3D subtraction is going to arrive in your garage first

Forget 3D printing—3D subtraction is going to arrive in your garage first | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it
A funny thing happened on the way to our supposedly 3D-printed future: A simpler, older, but no less revolutionary technology made its way into every automated factory on earth, and now it's coming to a garage near you.

How Sustainable is Digital Fabrication?

How Sustainable is Digital Fabrication? | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it
Digital fabrication is praised as the future of manufacturing. Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine tools can convert a digital design into an object with the click of a mouse, which means the production process is completely automated. The use of digital machine tools has spread rapidly in factories over the last two decades, and they have now become cheap and user-friendly enough to bring them within reach of workshops and makers. While CNC machines have been embraced by many, including some environmentalists who say the technology can be more...

CHI 2013: Constructables lets you draw on wood to guide a laser cutter

CHI 2013: Constructables lets you draw on wood to guide a laser cutter | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it
Digital Arts Online CHI 2013: Constructables lets you draw on wood to guide a laser cutter Digital Arts Online The typical fabrication method meant that a designer would need to sit in front of a computer and fully complete the design, according to...

 

"Instead of using Illustrator to design a woodcut, a new project lets you draw each cut as you go for freer creativity.

Using a laser pointer as a knife, a project at the Computer Human Interaction conference lets users make custom creations out of wood and plastic without spending hours designing.

Called Constructables, the project from Germany's Hasso Plattner Institute uses a £50,000 industrial laser cutter. The machine is controlled by a set of laser pointers, about a dozen, each with a different function. One can draw straight lines, one rounded corners, one rectangles and so on."

Hybrid Additive/Subtractive Fabrication Devices and Manufacturing Future

"Additive technologies (also called 3D printing) and their many uses and applications have risen exponentially over the last few years in terms of consciousness and adoption by industry. More traditional subtractive technologies have also been on the upswing with improvements in controllers, algorithms, motion control and software. As these two technology bases have improved so too have peripheral devices such as 3D scanners, robots and metrology systems. For manufacturers this is all good, but more often than not the additive/subtractive techniques are viewed as mutually exclusive. However, recently a new breed of manufacturing technology has begun to evolve — the hybrid, all-purpose fabrication machine."
