To make things one needs tools. Go buy a robot or a router if you can afford it, I can't. Still I can do whatever I like because, hey, its 2011 already.
I am a 10hrs/day Rhino Scripter for five years now? No, that can't be true. Anyway, here is some output.
At the spring 2011 AA MakeLab I brought a little device that can mark timber batten in order to make gridshells from them. It all came together quite nicely, though we were running out of time in the end. Actual assembly was merely a day. WIthout all the initial problems you can do this in a weekend.
