Laser cutting of an aperiodic tile
Sébastien Labbé, CNRS researcher (CombAlgo department, CI team), has carried out a laser cut of small pieces of wood that fit together to create a paving pattern. The cutting was carried out recently at ENSEIRB-MATMECA's FABLAB EirLab, with the help of David Renault (MdC in the M2F department, LX team).

The cut-out shape was calculated using Glucose software (developed at the LaBRI) during the SageMath Thursday sessions at the LaBRI. All the information you need to reproduce the svg files used to cut the shape is available in the article, along with photos of the cutting machine.
