Design Make Project Stage 3

The third and final stage of the distributed network prototyping project took place at the end of September and beginning of October, with designers and makers working together to fabricate the final prototype chairs. As the final stage, teams were focussed perhaps more on perfecting existing designs than making radical changes, though in some cases quite different approaches were taken. One team has also entered their final model into a design competition.


As with the previous stages, makers responded after the designers delivered their CAD files to help ensure these would be suitable to cut, with exchanges of expertise. The final prototypes are now being cut and will be sent to designers shortly, and we await their feedback on what they think of their final prototypes.

The Makers themselves have been very interested to explore the designing as well as fabricating elements of the project, and during this fabrication phase a number also designed and constructed their own prototypes.
