summary Considering the use of a particular digital fabrication method, this research intends to look into the design-production relation and attempts to answer the question of how the manufacturing parameters can be integrated into the design process to facilitate the design-to-production communication. It is argued that the above is achievable through the application of a simulationbased algorithmic procedures derived from the inherent logic of a fabrication machine’s functionality. It has been studied through creation of two custom tools facilitating the design process – a library for the Processing programming language and a bespoke design procedure - both based on a functionality of the CNC milling machine. Finally, the conclusion is made that broader implementation of custom design procedures with underlying digital fabrication logic has a potential of altering the design process and facilitate the design-tofactory communication.
