Sketch-Based CNC

Jennifer Jacobs

This project examines how digital fabrication workflows can be transformed to more closely resemble manual art practices. Jennifer Jacobs circumvented the traditional control interface of a CNC milling machine with an interactive interface where people could draw designs with a pressure sensitive stylus. The machine executes each stroke as soon as it is completed by the artist. She also developed a tool that enables people to switch between two different colors of acrylic paint when they draw. The drawing-based interface allows for people to create large-scale organic and gestural forms. This work is part of ongoing research in supporting intuitive and embodied digital fabrication.
