Automake is about combining generative systems with craft knowledge and digital production technologies to create a new way of designing and making objects that blurs the boundaries between maker and consumer, craft and industrial production.
Automake’s product creation process in relation to traditional craft and industrial processes.
Automake was developed as a research project that aimed to investigate the potentials of using generative systems to digitally design unique one-off works and produce them using a range of rapid prototyping/manufacturing technologies and CNC equipment.
We have created form building software that is designed to be extremely user friendly and allow anyone to design their own craft/design works. In addition we have developed a system for outputting construction files so that you can send us your new designs to be physically produced.
Visit the gallery page to see many examples of completed works and how they were created. The context and process pages provide an overview and a description of the underlying principles behind the project. The software page has form building software for you to use, so try Automaking.
