The Handibot, a Portable CNC Mill with Unlimited Work Area Capacity, Goes Live on Kickstarter

The Handibot, a Portable CNC Mill with Unlimited Work Area Capacity, Goes Live on Kickstarter | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it
CNC mills live in shops, and power tools are things you can carry around. That's been the paradigm. But building on their successful 17 years of producing and refining CNC mills, ShopBot Tools has now combined the two worlds with their new, portable, crowdfunded Handibot. (The Kickstarter campaign went live about fifteen minutes ago.) The Handibot is what they're calling a "smart tool," and it's essentially a 3-axis CNC mill that you can carry (and run via PC, tablet

Digital Inca

Digital Inca | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it
A prototype of a translation of the Inca Wedge method into Autoclave
Aerated Concrete. First the unique units are carved with precision on the
visible face, then swarf milled away in the back to ensure only the front
edge and a central nub will align with the neighbors. What is of interest
in this method is the conventional technique of laying mortar then setting
a masonry unit into the mortar allowing the squeeze-out to precisely align
units is replaced. In this technique, the precisely carved units are first
held in place dry, then packed in from behind with mortar (in this case
plaster). This method has advantages and disadvantages, though we are
excited for the potentials. More to come soon!
