Open Lecture “Digital Fabrication and Woodworking”

In recent years computer controlled digital creation devices such as 3D printers and milling machines have undergone rapid development, and they are receiving a lot of attention under the term “digital fabrication.” In the same way that personal computers and smartphones changed people’s daily lives, digital machine tools becoming smaller and cheaper are causing huge changes to construction, furniture, and other areas involving “making things.”

In an era like this with new technologies, just how will local businesses change? Will “digital fabrication” cause changes to the Japanese lumber industry? Combining the new technologies of “digital fabrication” with the technologies of a local area, can the range of possibilities for “making things” can be broadened?

Minamioguni-machi has been heavily involved in the lumber industry going way back, and three specialists from Japan and Australia will talk about new possibilities for “digital fabrication” and woodworking / wood construction.

Also, this open lecture will be held along with the “Digital Fabrication and Local Craft” symposium, a cooperative effort between Kyushu University and the University of New South Wales. We look forward to seeing you all there.
