Are we going to have 3d printers made from cardboard soon? This project is a sure sign we will! Gestalt and the Modular Machines that Make are a hardware-software framework duo that will enable whole new level of scalability, cost effectiveness, development speed and availability for anything related to digital fabrication. Beside its practical applications, it is the first step towards presenting a real alternative for dominance of archaic g-code since it doesn't use it. With it you can … [Read more...]
