What is what?
What is CAD?
CAD (Computer Aided Design) is software used for drafting and documenting design. Allowing the user to create precision drawings, 3D-models and in our case design furniture that can be easily visualised and accurately represented. We mainly use Fusion 360 for our design.
What is a CNC Machine?
A CNC Machine can be simply described, an automated machine that controls tools via a computer. These automated machines process materials (in our case plywood) by cutting pieces through the use of a router. They follow a pre-coded programme instruction without a manual operator.
What is G-code?
Okay, so you have a CNC and you want to cut a shape into a piece of wood. How do you tell your machine to do this? Well you have to speak it’s language – and this is what G-code is. G-code allows you to programme in co-ordinates so your CNC machine knows where to go and what to do.
Material of choice
For materials we generally use B/BB or S/BB birch plywood. Generally speaking the top grade available. The standard size we use is 1220 x 2440mm. However, if you use our size guide on each product page, you can see what percentage of wood is required if you are using a smaller CNC.
