The CNC router is a simple tool made complicated by the layers of software used to control it. Those layers mediate the maker's experience of the tool, and traces of the software often appear in the final objects. In this demonstration using MIAD's CNC router, we will explore techniques to peel back the layers and re-exert the maker's hand in controlling the tool. Bart Niswonger will also share examples of his work with randomly and automatically generated forms.
