Design, DIY, and computer-controlled fabrication are a powerful combination for making high-quality customized things. Written by the founders of the architecture, design, and research firm Filson and Rohrbacher, this book takes you throughout the basics of CNC fabrication, the design process, production, and construction of your individual furniture designs. Through their AtFAB series of projects, accompanied by an overview of digital techniques and design thinking, this book introduces the knowledge and skills that you’ll be able to find widely applicable across a wide variety of CNC projects. Not only will you discover ways to design, fabricate, and assemble a variety of projects, you’ll be able to have some great furniture to show for it!
While 3D printing has been grabbing headlines, high school, college, library, and other public makerspaces have been making things with CNC machines. With a CNC router, you’ll cut parts from strong, tactile, durable materials like wood. After you have your design and material, you’ll set up your job and let it run. When it is done, you’ll put the project together for an heirloom of your individual. Whilst 3D printing can make exciting things with complex designs, CNCs are the digital workhorses that produce large-scale, long-lasting objects.
