Shenzhen Hotel Machine
Nadya Peek, Dan Chen, James Coleman, Calvin Zhong
While setting up a fabrication lab in Shenzhen, the heart of global manufacturing, we set out to build a machine from scratch in a single day. Walking around Huaqiang Plaza it was easy to acquire all the required parts, electronics, and cardboard to create a 3 axis drawing machine. With some help from a local hardware accelerator, we were able to access a laser cutter for a couple hours. After tweaking a couple parameters in the Grasshopper file generator (to fit the size of cardboard we found) we cut all the parts and returned to the hotel for assembly and testing.
Single linear axis assembled.
