A recent digital fabrication project for Future Cities Lab at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The project involved laser cutting, cnc milling and 3d printing.

COMPLEXITY: A recent digital fabrication / model making project for Future Cities Lab that was on display at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The project involved laser cutting, CNC milling and 3D printing. 

PRECISION: MACHINIC was excited to work with Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) as a digital fabricator throughout the America's Cup 2013 in San Francisco. We created 12 custom CNC moulds for the production of their carbon fiber rudders, elevators and various sub-components. It was an amazing learning experience for our team!

CRAFT: We also routinely work with small businesses in the Bay Area to fabricate high-quality limited-quantity products. As an example - we have worked with the wildly successful start-up "Sunski" sunglasses to fabricate custom laser-cut displays that can now be found in stores around the world. Each display is a piece of machine-crafted art!


MACHINIC is a design, prototyping and consulting service bureau based in San Francisco. We work with a range of clients to strategize, model, visualize and engineer their projects. From product prototyping, to architectural models and interactive electronics, we work closely with our clients to bring their ideas into reality.
