Greetings from the future. IAB had taken over the internet by constantly recycling old content. It filled it all up, the whole thing.
Doom awaits you all!!!

CAD/CAM takes nowhere near the effort or creativity of manual machining or hand crafting.
CNC machines of any sort still require a bloody good machinist to set them up.
After that, any clown can press the start button.

Designing Michelangelo`s David in CAD programs these days would be simple.
try programing raw G-Code directly into the machine. you will soon appreciate how easy CAD makes life.

@ Rick_S
I agree to disagree
can see where your coming from, but using a CNC machine kinda makes it clinical,
appreciating where the artist made alterations, or mistakes, makes it more personal, and knowing it was made by a machine kinda kills the value for me. Program is in so can reproduce x amount of said figures/ sculptures, hand made is hand made

@ferdyfred, I disagree. The changes happen in the virtual space on the computer. The "artist" sees the output on the screen and adjusts it to his or her liking. Yes, it`s not a physical object yet, so their senses are limited in this regard, but it`s not like the put in a formula, and then wait for the rock to be cut to see what it looks like. They get real-time feedback on the screen of what their changes mean.

@ h2oxy
see what your trying to say, but it isnt done by hand, changing as the artist see`s it form and maybe adding or taking away bits as he/she goes on.
thats the difference.

@Profworm But the design was made by a human... designing the statue of David would`ve taken just as much effort to design in autocad. A lot of amazing art nowadays is drawn and designed on computers, computers are just tools, useless without human input.

When the human element stops being a part of the art, it loses some of it`s value. Michalangelo`s David would be a lot less impressive if he`d made it on a 3D printer.
