The system itself is not quite as robust as we would want it at the moment. The tracking in reactivison and rhino is not well calibrated and sometimes the tool offset is not constant. The timer used to communicate via arduino, and the reactivision listener tend to eat up memory over time and slow the process. Lastly, the wood we used was very hard to carve and left us with shallow cuts.
Moving forward we would like to look into creating a hybrid between the digital and the analog fabrication processes. Where the user goes in before and/or after CNCing and laser cutting, to add more of their uniqueness to the process. We are also interested in generating prints with CNC'd carvings to see if we can achieve a similar level of complexity to wood block carvings. We also aim to improve the tracking and have a much more robust system to use.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
