Digital Fabrication with Because We Can Jillian Northrup and Jeffrey McGrew are Because We Can, a full service design studio in Oakland that specializes in architecture, interiors and “fantastical things”. Even though they are a very small team, they are able to do digital design all the way through fabrication because they are leveraging a new class of affordable yet advanced tools like the ShopBot, a computer-controlled router for fabricating with wood, plastic, aluminum & more. If you’re someone who loves visual design, but has never ventured into physical making because power tools are a tad bit intimidating, come to Jillian and Jeffrey’s workshop presentation at East Bay Mini Maker Faire, “Using Digital Fabrication to Change the World: Empowerment Through Automated Tools.” Jillian herself comes from a graphic design background, but found her way to making physical structures through output of digital files to these computer-controlled tools. Keep watching ebmakerfaire.com for the full schedule of workshops and talks.

Poly(Methyl methacrylate) Description of Acrylic Acrylic, or poly(methyl-methacrylate), is a transparent thermoplastic that has the transparency of glass at half the weight. Some of the key properties of Acrylic are optical clarity (clearer than polycarbonate), weather resistance, UV stability (does not yellow), impact resistance (many times greater than glass) and dimensional stability (does not shrink). There are three basic types of Acrylic: Cell Cast Acrylic, Continuous Cast Acrylic and Extruded Acrylic. Acrylic Sheet Fabrication and Processing Acrylic sheets can be shaped using a variety of tools.
Cedric Price CEDRIC PRICE (1934-2003) was one of the most visionary architects of the late 20th century. Although he built very little, his lateral approach to architecture and to time-based urban interventions, has ensured that his work has an enduring influence on contemporary architects and artists, from Richard Rogers and Rem Koolhaas, to Rachel Whiteread. Taking the view that architecture should be enabling, liberating and life-enhancing, Cedric Price’s approach was all-embracing. From landmark projects such as the 1960-61 Fun Palace, to designs for Christmas tree lights on London’s Oxford Street, his projects were governed by the belief that architecture must “enable people to think the unthinkable?.

Silva, AIA, owns a 3,000-squarefoot warehouse full of nothing but cardboard. That's because he started a group called SacDigiFab based around sharing digital fabrication concepts and rapid prototyping with corrugated cardboard full-size mockups. Working with architecture students and other designers on designs directly transferable to metal forming, he's completed multiple installations including two architecture pavilions over the past two years.
