    Digital Tools and Efficiency

    Recently at the studio, the owner of Demiurge and myself were discussing this amazing interview of Rives Rash by Aaron Willette on his  Archinect blog ( ) and I sketched this out to help visualize the issues we were discussing.


    The graph shows that the greatest savings in time occurs as a shop moves from traditional fabrication into existing CNC technology, while there are diminishing returns in the pursuit of the absolute cutting edge of CNC fabrication. This simple visualization helped us to realize that some processes are simply better left to the experts, while other methods of fabrication would show relatively large savings.

    Simple yet effective, like many of the visualizations and tools we use.
