Our reason for this project:
We’ve designed machine that combines multi- fabrication methods: 5axis milling being one of them. 5AXISMAKER is a machine versatile enough to fabricate most advanced design prototypes in readily available material while on your desktop right next to you.
Being an alumni of Architectural Association we’ve had an access to most advanced fabrication tools in the world. Yet there is no desktop prototyping machine that has versatility to replicate this technology.
Our company has been initially found as design and fabrication practise, and after years of working with wide range of designers from different fields it has become clear that one should have an instant access to a pallet of prototyping tools. We wanted same machine to include a set of tools like CNC mill, touch-probe, 3d printer, wire-cutter and have a potential for further add-ons.
That is why we have developed 5AXISMAKER.
We created 5 axis platform that gives you an unprecedented versatility compared to 3axis platforms of readily available 3d printers and desktop cnc mills. It lets the tool work on details of the model that other machines could not reach. 5AXISMAKER comfortably sits on your desk and has a large fabrication volume for its size.
5AXISMAKER is a multi fabricator, simply swap the tool head and it becomes a different type of machine. There is 5axis milling tool that brings you the power of the most common digital manufacturing process in the world. You could attach a 3d printing head and start printing objects in minutes, or use a touch probe to scan physical objects in to 3d models. These are all real world fabrication techniques so you can prototype fabrication process yourself, you can be in control of process affecting your design. There is a potential for practically all digital fabrication techniques to be combined in one platform and we need your help to complete development of this amazing tool!
