4th Axis Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates 4th axis machining to create an ornamental artefact. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the product is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in STL format. Next the...

Bench Drill

This resource from Boxford presents CAD files for the development of a working bench drill press made from 3mm acrylic. The drill press is designed to be laser cut. The resource describes how the bench drill press can be used as an example of a rack and pinion mechanism for changing types of motion. It also...

3D Scanner Demo

This video from Boxford demonstrates the use of a Next Engine 3D scanner. The scanner is introduced along with the software needed to work alongside it. A mechanical part that is to be scanned and reproduced is shown. ScanStudio software is then opened and different scan modes are introduced. The object is then...

250 Metal Turning

This video from Boxford demonstrates steel turning using a CNC machine. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the CAD design for a metal screw in part is produced using LatheCAD software. CAM processing then takes place and software is used to...

190 Steel Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates steel machining. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. A 2D CAD file for a 190 logo is designed using Techsoft Mill Design. CAM processing then takes place and the routing process is simulated using software. An...

Firstly the CAD design for a metal screw in part is produced using LatheCAD software. CAM processing then takes place and software is used to...

Material choices at Brompton

This video looks at the different grades of steel used in the frame design of a Brompton bicycle, typically steel tube and steel sheet. Designers consider several criteria when choosing materials for a folding bicycle, including strength, weight and durability. Due to the manufacturing process, Brompton does not...

Brompton Design

Will Carleysmith, senior designer at Brompton Bicycle, describes how designers need an understanding of materials and manufacturing processes are essential in his role. He explains how mathematics and CAD are used in the design process, as well as rapid prototyping techniques.

Thomas Heatherwick: Building the Seed Cathedral

In this talk, courtesy of TED, architect Thomas Heatherwick shows five recent projects featuring ingenious bio-inspired designs. Some are remakes of the ordinary: a bus, a bridge, a power station. One is an extraordinary pavilion, the Seed Cathedral, which is a celebration of growth and light. The team re-designed...
