We love the *literal* fine-grained details of this gyroscope. It’s printed in alumide—nylon filled with aluminum dust—creating *fine* contours that demonstrate just how intricate #3Dprinting can get. ⚙️

Rendered in SLS Nylon, this mini-vacuum chamber prototype is an invaluable sales tool for the coating engineering firm that commissioned it. 
Some products or services are too big or remote to show or demonstrate—#3Dprinting to the rescue!

Behold, the Infinity Scope—a kaleidoscope we collaborated with @multiplealdas on. This is it assembled, but it needed to be flat-pack for mailing; where others see constraint, we see opportunity. Read about its design, which artfully combines #lasercutting & #3dprinting on our blog. 🔭✨

This is a fun recent collaboration with @aframestudio, creators of fine architectural and interior photography. They *just* published “The Modern A-Frame,” a book of images that “captures the romance” of homes built in the iconic mid-century A-Frame style. To celebrate, we #lasercut a run of these handsome magnets. Learn more about their book by following @modernaframe. 🏠📕⠀Photo courtesy of A Frame Studio.

2018 is indeed ramping up, but thoughts of last year linger as it was a banner year for us. In 2017, we completed over 1,400 projects, launched Hot Pop Goods with the release of a collection of brandable wood wares, and strengthened community relations with a roster of amazing organizations including @luminatofestival, @makerfestival, @ooak_toronto, @thestopcfc, and @todesignoffsite. ⠀

This and next week we’ll be sharing some #makeallthethings visual highlights from last year—enjoy! Here: definitely one of the more intricate #lasercutting jobs we executed last year, an @xue.liang design for @sebastian.tattoo.
