Reposted from my design blog. I am preparing an exhibition of genetic fractal art and this is an introduction to this. With genetic fractals I am exploring the process of creation. A process that starts with nothing and evolves into something both beautiful and complex at once. Every artwork of genetic fractals has a clear…
Part 1: the Amplifier Unit This is a proud post. Now that I have a fully functioning CNC machine, I can give form to design ideas that I have harboured for a long time. This tube amp is one of many such ideas.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time: create the simplest possible genetic fractal based on a binary string. Let me explain. The nice looking fractals I post here and elsewhere are all driven by a genetic sequence. This goes something like: bend to the left by so much
After 9 nine months of building the Genetic CNC router in 3 generations, I have finally produced the first non-test cut. A couple of speakers for my workshop to enjoy Spotify when the CNC router isn’t destroying my ears.
Yes, you read that right: V1.0! Since my first prototype back in December 2015 which moved a dremel along the XYZ directions but had a resolution of
When I started this CNC project, I thought it would be a lot easier than it turned out to be. This is known as the Dunning-Kruger effect. This is a chronic ailment for me – I will head into any subject,
I have been developing the theory and implementation of “genetic fractals” since 2010 and have often wondered what the next big step would be. You may not be familiar with genetic fractals, so here is a short definition:
