    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.

    @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.

    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.

    @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.

    @ 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

    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.
