We brought AtFAB prototypes and models back to the World Maker Faire in New York. We shared the story of design, parametric customization, and distributed CNC manufacturing, and also had the chance to field test the 90 Minute Lounge Chair with countless makers and visitors trying them out. We also presented AtFAB on the Maker Stage to make the case for new collaborations between designers and makers of all stripes.
Bill Young of ShopBot Tools fabbed the full scale prototypes and has been collaborating with us on incorporating 3D printed parts into the furniture as both functional components and a new take on traditional marquetry. You can see our first efforts using parts cut by a ShopBot CNC and 3D objects printed with our MakerBot Replicators.
