As early as the 1940’s, the term “Numerically Controlled” was applied to a category of manufacturing machines that had been modified to accept a set of inputs from a “computer” instead of a human operator. CNC machines are now widely used in many fabrication and manufacturing areas and apply to thousands of different machines in nearly every industry of today.
ProtoMaker is a threedimensional softwarebased printer platform. As opposed to other CNC platforms, the most significant difference with ProtoMaker is the abstraction of the traditional hardwarecentric control logic into a suite of software algorithms. The software design of ProtoMaker is the focus of this project.
