Reebok is using 3D technology to break the mold. Bloomberg’s Anne Mostue visited the Boston-based company’s headquarters to see how it’s using proprietary liquid material, software and robotics to draw shoes in three-dimensional layers
Wooden Joinery Design & Ideas #1: Laser cutting is widely used by industrial designers and mechanical engineers as a rapid modeling tool. However, designing and fabricating laser cut assemblies can be a complex and tedious process, especially for novice designers. Joints between different parts of an assembly is a key aspect of translating a digital model into a physical model through laser cutting. Joinery was developed to facilitate this rapid modeling process as a parametric joint generation toolkit for laser cut assemblies.
LaserOrigami is a rapid prototyping system that produces 3D objects using a laser cutter. LaserOrigami is substantially faster than traditional 3D fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and unlike traditional laser cutting the resulting 3D objects require no manual assembly.
This parametric design made from Baltic Birch Plywood. the bumps form a helix pattern around the lampshade.
Wooden Wall Art Designs & Ideas #2: Three dimensional wall art that is sure to turn heads. This minimal and classy design is perfect for adding some 3D “pop” to your home or business. This Birch wood box is laser cut before being layered with additional birch panels. It is then sanded, stained, and sealed with shellac by hand! 8 inch wide, 10 inch tall, with an approximate 1 inch depth to really make it stand out. Available in red, blue, and teal finishes.
In this video you can watch the fabrication process of DIY laser cut birch wood candle holder
Denzil Makes made this chair for the Rockler Plywood challenge, others make similar chairs using a CNC router, but never a laser cutter. As it laser cuts better than other plywood designer used Baltic Birch which comes in 60” x 60” sheets this means he used slightly more than one sheet of plywood.

Wooden Coaster Design & Ideas #4: Carl Friedrich Gauss distinguishes between three types of curved surfaces, single curved – neutral (cylindrical), and double curved – negative (hyperboloid) and positive (spherical).
Curved surfaces are very attractive, especially negative double curved surfaces, but also very complicated to perform. What’s interesting about them in constructive terms is the increase in stiffness and load capacity as the surface is bent in one and two directions.
Do not Disturb is a clocks collection that intended to be a non-intrusive object for your home. Ernest Perera works in this project as a really designer-maker. He uses his own cnc milling machine and finished with his hands.
The ZCB Bamboo Pavilion is a public event space built for the Construction Industry Council’s Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) in the summer of 2015 in Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong.
The Moses Mabhida Stadium by GMP Architekten is located in a sporting precinct in Durban on the shore of the Indian ocean and features a 105-metre arch that rises over the circular stadium.

If you want to build this: two chunks of 2×4 that were each 20″ long were cut. These were then ripped into 14 strips, which were eventually cut in half. Of these 28 total pieces, 18 were used for hexagonal and 10 were used for pentagonal tubes.
This bridge was produced using 3D concrete printing technology by Ghent University in collaboration with Vertico. The design and production of a topology-optimized prestressed concrete bridge is presented. Topology optimization (TO) is a mathematical method that optimizes material layout within a given design space
