Digital fabrication presents many opportunities for craftspeople and industrial manufacturers to develop new production approaches to production, inspiring new models and product aesthetics. In most cases however, to implement such changes, it takes very specific new knowledge as well as inspiration and awareness to implement such changes. As product designers, we aim to mediate between technology and craft and show manufacturers possible applications of digitally-supported production methods, consult them and jointly develop an original production setup. With this approach, we strive to increase the individual character of materials and process-related material effects in industrial or semi-industrial products and thereby elevate the product's quality and appreciation.
