computational chainsaw wood cutting

“Woodworking is a most satisfying pastime, so varied and multifaceted you will never complete the twin processes you have undertaken: acquiring tools and learning how to use them. You have begun a lifetime pursuit”.

Michael Dunbar

What about carving and cutting wood in unique pieces, following a complete computational approach? Robots help us in this, allowing a complex woodworking process that enables to shape the material in a controlled way.

The process is optimised keeping in mind the piece characteristics’ and the final result. To obtain complex connections is no more an expensive and time consuming process.
