OpenVSP Editor Description Acrylic glass GS sheets are produced by means of liquid PMMA polymerizing between two sheets of glass. This process produces a material with outstanding characteristics: it is fracture resistant (compared to glass), weather resistant, highly transparent and lends itself to being shaped and processed. Please note Please take into account the thickness tolerances of acrylic glass. 1 mm Acrylic: This Precision Acrylic Glass is an ultra high quality cast acrylic plate that primarily distinguish themselves from other customary acrylic glass in the trade through their extremely small thickness tolerances (± 0.1 mm). Design notes Acrylic semifinished products do not turn yellow in the sunshine. 1 mm Acrylic: Engraving is not recommended for this Precision Acrylic Glass. Typical uses Acrylic sheets have universal applications: for lightweight constructions in model making or visual displays, in picture frames or glazing as well as for making signs and light boxes.

Fabripod This is a mockup of the lamp configurator I’m putting together for my line of “Urchin” lamps. When its finished, people will be able to set up their own lamp the way they want it, see how much it will cost, and buy it using paypal – all through the same online tool. The mockup opens in a new window since I haven’t figured out how to embed processing into wordpress yet. Use the sliders on the left to control options like scale and materials. I’m still working out the kinks in the back end, so the pricing is not accurate yet. Urchin Lamps are now available in Wood Veneer! Finally, this one is available for purchase in the ponoko store! Look for more models coming to the ponoko store soon! What would you use Chrysalis for? That’s the question I have been asking each person who has backed my project on kickstarter . Quoted directly from kickstarter backers’ comments: “My partner and I have designed a series of customizable furniture objects (

Voronoi Bookshelf Prototype, an experiment in interactive, generative design | Hero Design Posted by Hero on Mar 22, 2012 in Configurable Design, Creative Code, Custom Design, Generative Design, Mass Customization What is this? This is a prototype. An experiment in generative, collaborative design. The prototype consists of two parts: a generator and an object. So what is generative, collaborative design? When think of a design, we typically imagine marks on paper (or a screen) specifying what the object is. The natural next step is to put the software managing the generation and interaction on the Internet. What were your intention/goals for this project? My primary goals in this project were more technical than creative. My goal was to write a program with the following features: My secondary goal was to create a Voronoi bookshelf for my own home. My secret hope was that in this first round, I’d be able to develop a program/experience that anyone could use easily and purchase online. If you’d like to build your own, keep reading, and I’ll tell you how. It’s likely. What worked?

Automake | About Automake is about combining generative systems with craft knowledge and digital production technologies to create a new way of designing and making objects that blurs the boundaries between maker and consumer, craft and industrial production. Automake’s product creation process in relation to traditional craft and industrial processes. Automake was developed as a research project that aimed to investigate the potentials of using generative systems to digitally design unique one-off works and produce them using a range of rapid prototyping/manufacturing technologies and CNC equipment. We have created form building software that is designed to be extremely user friendly and allow anyone to design their own craft/design works. In addition we have developed a system for outputting construction files so that you can send us your new designs to be physically produced. Visit the gallery page to see many examples of completed works and how they were created.
