From bits to atoms

From bits to atoms

Computer Aided Manufacturing is an essential part of product development. Just like the building of prototypes. Preferably early on in the process.

Ultimately, a 3D CAD model is always an approximation of reality; it incorporates the information that you have thought about, as well as the things you haven’t (yet) considered.

During the Fair Design reception at MadeIn4Havens, our very own Antony Weinbeck gave a presentation about how we at Spark cleverly combine Computer Aided Manufacturing with prototyping, including with 3D printers. Antony: “A prototype makes our blind spots patently clear. You can learn a huge amount from this. And the earlier you take the step ‘from bits to atoms’, the better your design will be in the end. What’s more, you’ll also save a lot of costs, because the earlier in the process that you make adjustments, the less chance there is of causing a big chain reaction later.”
