    Complexity is Free

    With subtractive manufacturing, complexity can get expensive and sometimes even impossible. Additive manufacturing means that we can now manufacture complex designs without much added cost or waste.

  • Don't fight forces, use them.

    Let's Talk About Materials

    The material we'll be using is called PLA (Polylactide). It's a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane.

  • Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles.

    Your Turn!

    3D Printing and CAD get really interesting when you realize that the world around you was designed and built by people just like you. Try to think of another creation like the Tooth Paste Squeezer that'd help you or your family in your daily lives.

  • For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.

    A Personalized Future

    Most products you own (glasses, shoes, shirts, etc.) weren't custom built for your unique specifications, instead they were mass produced for average sizes. Can you imagine a future in which everything you own is designed and built just for you?
