DIWire a 3D CNC wire bender
In recent years, 3D rapid prototyping machines have gone mainstream. These printers split a volume into thin slices and build up the form by printing a layer of material and bonding it to the next. We needed a device that could 3D print lines in space, so we created the DIWire – a 3D CNC wire bender that is as simple to use as a 3D printer. We have open sourced it and licensed it under a CC-BY-SA licence for the hardware and GPL for the software programs (a few programs come with the package).
