SketchChair enters the Ponoko App Gateway
An exciting step in the development of their 'Personal Factory', Ponoko are opening an App Gateway, where anybody will be able to interact with tools to make their own personalised creations - Including SketchChairs! Look out for more info from us on this SketchChair app in future updates...
SketchChair Alpha v0.8.1.6
After a number of compatibility issues it looks like SketchChair alpha is finally running smoothly for most of our collaborators. There is a number of updates in the latest build, including more successful DXF exporting.
SketchChairs at Maker Faire
With a big thanks to Bill Young and ShopBot, and to Ponoko, those of you who happened to attend the Bay Area Maker Faire last month might have chanced upon one or two Antler Chairs! In fact, you may even be the person who liked the chairs so much you took one of them while the shopbot team were packing up their booth!
