Interactive Fabrication of Functional Mechanical Devices
Figure 1: (a) Constructable users interact by drafting directly on the workpiece with hand-held lasers. (b) Here the user sketches a finger joint across two objects (c) The system responds by cutting the desired joint using the cutting laser. (d) Constructable allows creating precise & functional mechanical objects, such as this simple motorized vehicle.
Figure 2: (a, b) Constructable offers 15 different proxy lasers.
