123D Make Hand Bowl

Sometimes everyone just needs an extra hand to hold things, and I suppose that is where the hand bowl comes in. The hand bowl was made using 123D Make and all of the instructions for making one are posted over on Instructables (including laser cutter templates). If you don't have a laser cutter, or are just feeling lazy, you can buy the complete hand bowl kit and get a jump start on making your own.

123D Fab! at Autodesk University

For this year's Autodesk University, Oliver has designed a fun interlocking building system that is going to be used as part of the 123D Fab! Contest. During the contest, entrants at the festival are going to compete to see who can build the best structure with cardboard parts such as wheels, levers, and gears. In preparation for the mayhem, thousands of parts were laser cut out of cardboard with the help of our laser cutting service.

Stay tuned for updates from the event!

123D Make in Action

Not long ago we released the Beta version of 123D Make and I was recently happy to discover that it is already being put to good use. David Lang has printed a sliced cardboard planter and then covered it in clay to give it more permanence. His initial plan was to simply use this as a model of the finished product, but after seeing the results, decided to just use it as is (with the expectation the cardboard will decompose once the plant starts to grow). This is a promising start to unleashing the potential of this software and I am excited to see all of the amazing things that people create.

Share with us the things that you have sliced, cut out, and assembled using 123D Make in the gallery and post a link in the comments below.
