Sketch It, Make It

Sketch It, Make It (SIMI) is a modeling tool for designing items to laser cut. Unlike traditional interfaces that rely on modes and discrete keyboard and mouse input, SIMI recognizes rough, hand-drawn input. It interprets this as linework (e.g. lines, arcs), editing commands (e.g. erasing) or geometric constraints (e.g. right angle or same-length).

We are currently looking at ways to bring this out of the lab and into “the real world” in some way.
