Here are our Staff Picks for this week.   CNC woodworking, art and robotics merge, 3D printing, metal casting and laser cutting fill this week’s picks.   We hope you’ll enjoy them.



Wood Joinery Notebook   Very interesting article about CNC wood joinery. - Gregg



The Art of Curve Folding and Robotic Manufacturing   Two robot arms working together to fold sheet metal to make a very cool wall facade. - Alex



Portable 3D Printer   This kickstarter is for a 3D printer with a 100mm ^3 build envelope.   The designer has proved that he can successfully print 10 micron thick layers in PLA, although the machine can increment its z-height in 0.4 micron steps.   Another useful feature is the fast print head motion (it’s capable of 300mm/sec). - Alex



Metal Molding in the South of Brazil   Interesting story about various types of metal casting in the southern region of Brazil. - Yulia



The Lasersaur is an open source laser cutter. - Alex
