SketchChair Back in Motion

Despite the set-back suffered due to Amazon Payments, we're very happy to say that the SketchChair project is moving forward full steam ahead!

Pledge rewards nearing production!

We can't yet confirm shipping dates for the pledge rewards, but production of all of these items is almost ready to go!  We currently estimate that we will be able to ship off all our the rewards by mid July, but we'll post further updates when we can confirm this.

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...

Ponoko has announced their App Gateway!

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!
