Triangle Pavilion Parametric Design Laser cutting fabrication

Triangle Pavilion

The Triangle pavilion by Bojan Tepavčević and Dejan Mitov, Digital Design Center, FTN, University of Novi Sad, combines tessellation design logic with friction fit connection system that does not need glue or mechanical fasteners.

Exoskeleton Pavilion Parametric Design Digital Fabrication


The structural design of ‘Exoskeleton’, a pavilion exploring the possibilities of computer-aided manufacturing in prototyping, is a proposal by students of University of Ghent that addresses full-scale construction with limited resources.

Vessel Forms Digital Fabrication

Vessel Forms

Designer Julia Ibbini is interested in human and machine collaboration in a traverse of analog and digital to create work with highly detailed machined precision, but which remains distinctly human in origin.

Pixel Wall Parametric Design and Fabrication

Pixel Wall

The “pixel wall” is composed of laser cut plates. Using parametric design and digital fabrication techniques, this flexible self-supporting wall has low cost and reduced environmental impact. This project is being developed by researchers from Chile and Brazil.

Waffle Structure as Canopy

Waffle Canopy

WEsearch lab recently concluded their experimental study on ‘Waffle Structure as Canopy’ at CEPT University. Polygonal meshes were quickly modelled and iterated in Rhino. The final surfaces were turned into waffles by using custom Grasshopper script.

Laser Cut 3D Lotus

Laser Cut 3D Lotus

Having access to a laser cutter in a Fablab, designers at laxap wanted to give a try making a stacked laser cut sheet sculpture. Their tool of choice is OpenSCAD, which allows to combine 2D and 3D techniques, and to preview the final result.

Lasercut Bendable Bracelet

Bendable Bracelet

In this video by Boss Laser you can see how to make a rigid material flexible using your laser cutter. There is a way to use laser cutting to create 3D objects from flat materials, and it uses a clever design element called a Lattice or Living Hinge.

Laser Origami - Laser Cut Design

Laser Origami

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.

3D Optical Illusions

3D Optical Illusions

Human eyes could be easier to trick than you might think. A Japanese professor, Kokichi Sugihara, created sculptures that trick the mind to see the impossible. He was the winner of the Best Illusion of the Year Contest in 2010 and 2nd place in 2016.

The Waffle - Laser Cut Design

The Waffle

This lampshade with a notched “waffle” structural system brings the distinctive quality of light in your space. The parametric processes being used to design a unique object with interlocking 40 laser cut ribs.

Aguaviva Side Table

Aguaviva is the third piece in David’s Strata range which uses multiple layers to create a sense of movement. This piece is made up of a total of 93 pieces of solid wood which are carefully joined together to produce this dynamic sculptural side table.

Grille Partition Screen - Laser Cut

Grille Partition Screen

Grille Partition Screen&Wood Carved Partition for screen or ceiling of interior decoration. Grille partition screen, as perforated interior element, is very classic and enjoyed by many clients.

Laser Cut Pendant Lamp - Parametric Design

Laser Cut Pendant Lamp

How to make a star pendant lamp from a small piece of 1/4-in-thick plywood. The team from HomeMadeModern used a Full Spectrum Laser cutter to create this star pendant lamp. First, the concentric star pattern was cut by the laser. Then the star shapes were stacked and glued together, offsetting the points of the stars, to create dimension.

Lasercut Grid Chair - Parametric Design

Lasercut Grid Chair

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.

Twisted Lasercut Lampshade No.2 - Parametric Design

Twisted Lasercut Lampshade

This Pendant lamp is in a triangular shape on bottom and top and each corner is incrementally rotated to give a lampshade both a curved and twisted outline. Depending on the angle you look at the lamp, it will give all different experience.

Parametric Office Chair

Parametric Office Chair

Oleg Tyrnov designed this wooden office chair with the help of parametric modelling techniques considering the principles of ergonomics in order to create a beautiful, unique and innovative product which is really comfortable too.

Coffee Bean Table

Coffee Bean Table

Inspired by the coffee bean’s natural geometry, this beautifully crafted table is made of CNC-cut Mahogany slats, showing its distinctive brown tones, making its close resemblance to the coffee seed even more direct

Do Not Disturb Clock

Do Not Disturb Clock

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.

Wooden Coasters #4 - Laser Cutting Designs & Ideas

Laser Cutting #26

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.

Wooden Wall Clock #6 - Laser Cutting Designs & Ideas

Laser Cutting #25

Wooden Wall Clock Design & Ideas #6: Unique, high quality handmade geometrical wooden wall clock, inspired by geometric structure -Voronoi diagram. Our clock „Diagram“ is designed in a contemporary style. These honeycomb-like, asymmetric, mesh shapes are used in many types of mathematical analyses as well as to create interesting fill patterns in things like furniture and wall panels. Extraordinary wall clock has been created using lazercut machine, and fitted with quartz mechanism. Untreated matte natural oak color. Assembled with three different types of arrows.
