A Place for Projects
Where you can easily and beautifully share what you build, and how you make.

The project, Robotic 6-Axis 3D Printing, is a highly-integrated installation combining robotics, 3D printing technique and interactive interface. It aims to provide the designer a digital method to eliminate the line between "Designing" and "Fabricating". In this case, architects provides more than just drawings and construction notes, however, they are capable of fabricating their work quickly and precisely by themselves.
This 'Apple' CNC expands upon the Cardboard mMTM Project and utilizes the Gestalt Machine Control Framework. The Apple CNC machine is a multipurpose linear motion stage that requires significantly less hardware than previous instantiations and utilizes a globally available material, Apple IMac boxes.
