CNC wood… and other materials

Something I must share with you all….

Last Friday I have visited Roland DG  (Digital Group)

I wanted to see how their CNC machines work…and I must say I got very happy seeing how it works, the end results and the potential this has.

I got a demo of one of their bigger machines with an automatic tool changer and a rotary axis unit.

Not sure who of you have any experience with CNC and designing for CNC production but in general you can state that the level of details in a product is defined by the layer height and smallest tool used. Smallest tool defines the smallest inside radius.

Here are some pictures of some of the samples they made for me.

What do you guys think of this? Do you like it? Why ….? How…??
