Laminator Wood 3D Printer

One of my most recent projects in collaboration with Dan Goodman, another MIT student, is the design and production of a wood veneer based laminated object manufacturing machine. This machine will use the traditional principles of laminated object manufacturing applied to wood veneer to produce laminated parts such as custom electric guitars. This project is currently a work in progress.

Below is the general concept of LOM performed with plastic sheet and a laser.

Our current design is shown below:
