'AutoSaw' - Robotic, End-to-End Carpentry Tool for Mass Customization


A team from MIT  is aiming to democratize the design and fabrication of carpentered items by integrating professional CAD systems with user-friendly customization and robotic fabrication tools. The team created a template-based system that uses mobile robots and standard carpentry tools, and says their end-to-end tool allows laymen users to customize specific designs.
