new zealand designer greg saul is working on software that easily allows users to design and build their own products using rapid manufacturing. sketch chair is the first iteration of this project. the software is based on processing and enables users to design objects using 2-D sketching techniques. the software translates the 2-D drawings into a 3-D form which can be printed out or laser cut. the user then simply punches out the pieces and assembles their designs. the project is a collaboration with jst erato design ui project in tokyo.
