An Introduction to CNC Typography
This book is an invitation for (graphic) designers to enter the 3D universe. Producing tangible stuff has never been easier. This territory is anxiously waiting for designers with graphic and communication skills to step in, dream away and explore a world that is much less ephemeral than their professional field. Their professional background may move traditional barriers and our environment may be enriched with tangible objects from a world of creation normally exposed in books, magazines, and on screens.
The book explains the basic and varied manufacturing technologies. It discusses production options, problems, and how to best deal with them. But most of all by showcasing new designs the author tries to open up the lid of a bottomless box that has stayed closed for too long.
