Roughy - Getting on Wevolver

Our new page on Roughy is finally up on our website here.   We have been designing diligently in order to publish up for a spot on Wevolver.  We're really excited about this community and the possibility of giving back to the open hardware movement.  Pretty soon we will release this design along with a BOM.   You'll finally be able to build your own and if you like, help us refine this design into a real production machine that is accessible to people who don't have 10k or more to spare.

Made in Vermont (Year in Review 2014)

As another year comes to an end we would like to stand back and admire the accomplishments of this past year.  As creative types we constantly feel the need to push.  Late nights, early mornings, burning metal, wood shavings and glue dried on our hands, ink on paper, fingers punching keys, we utilize all the possible tools at our disposal for one goal- creation.

Swaged tube

During the process of developing 3d laser cutting profiles we were posed with an interesting challenge.  How to predict the laser cut profile of a fish mouth joint, on a tube that would undergo  swaging  after it was cut.  We were able to tweak some features in solidworks in order to predict this kind of geometry to work out perfectly, which in turn eliminated a bunch of grinding and fitting during the manufacturing process.  So stoked!
