Path Responsive Cabinet: Philadelphia, PA 2009

Skylar Tibbits, in collaboration with Point b design, presented the Path Responsive Cabinet, Aug. 2008.

The tool path is extracted from isocurves and undulates in response to surface depth, creating interlocking patterns on top of a given 3D surface. This utility was created to control the tool as it describes a cut path across any surface. This attempts to extend CAM software capabilities by specifying unique tool patterning through controlled step-over and bit depths, while still maintaining the desired 3D surface.

Custom milled cabinets installed in a residence/personal gallery space outside Philadelphia, PA.

Many thanks to Jon Proto and Brandon Kruysman.
