YOUR OWN WORKSHOP ROBOT—AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE Nothing improves efficiency in a wood- or metalworking shop—or almost any small manufacturing concern—like a CNC (computer numerical control) robot. But if you’ve priced one, you know the cost is a whopping $7,500 or more. Even plans on the Internet are expensive -- and you can’t tell if they suit your needs until you’ve forked over hundreds of dollars. NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME YOU CAN GET COMPLETE DIRECTIONS FOR BUILDING A CNC WORKSHOP BOT FOR A TOTAL COST OF AROUND $1,500! CNC Robotics gives you step-by-step, illustrated directions for designing, constructing, and testing a fully functional CNC robot that saves you 80 percent of the price of an off-the-shelf bot—and that can be customized to suit your purposes exactly, because you designed it. Written by an accomplished workshop bot designer/builder, this book gives you: * Start-to-finish illustrated instructions * Guidance on installing easy-to-understand Windows software for controlling your bot * Plenty of time-saving tips, tricks, and pictorial help along the way * Scaling and customizing instructions for building just the robot that you want * Sources for easily obtained parts * A complete course in workshop bot design and construction, perfect for courses or industry BUILD YOUR OWN WORKSHOP BOT AND BRING SPEED, PRECISION, AND AUTOMATION TO YOUR WORKBENCH OR ENTERPRISE.

FABRICATE is an international peer reviewed conference that takes place every three years with a supporting publication on the theme of Digital Fabrication. Discussing the progressive integration of digital design with manufacturing processes, and its impact on design and making in the 21st century, FABRICATE brings together pioneers in design and making within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation. Discussion on key themes includes: how digital fabrication technologies are enabling new creative and construction opportunities from component to building scales, the difficult gap that exists between digital modelling and its realisation, material performance and manipulation, off-site and on-site construction, interdisciplinary education, economic and sustainable contexts. FABRICATE features cutting-edge built work from both academia and practice, making it a unique event that attracts delegates from all over the world. FABRICATE 2011, 2014 and 2017 are now all available to download free from UCL Press.
