ROLE OF DIGITAL PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES IN FURNITURE MANUFACTURING
Furniture emerged with the most primitive form of life, and it maintained its importance as a significant part of everyday life according to people's needs. In particular, there were developments in production techniques when societies became sedentary. As a result, furniture production and its use became widespread. Later on, in terms of quality more complicated and more developed furniture were produced than before thanks to the opportunities provided by the developments in production techniques. As to in our day, the widespread use of computer aided design and digital production concept has a serious effect on furniture production. Today these technological innovations enable furniture manufactured with quite different methods from half a century ago as can be manufactured more in quantity, more quickly and almost without any error probability. Digital production techniques, which provide this opportunity and still develop, enable more complicated designs to be manufactured by taking into consideration the requirements of the indoors. In this context, it is thought that computer aided design and digital manufacturing systems will develop and provide innovative opportunities in the future.
