Product Creation Studio turned 15 a couple days ago and in spite of the milestone, I struggled to write anything significant about reaching it. Then I realized that perhaps just a description of my events for the day would paint of picture of where our company has come in the last decade and a half.
In late June, Product Creation Studio employees got a peek into a world of experimental physics where measurements are so precise they must account for the gravitational forces from the center of the universe. Where footsteps on the concrete floor result in deflections that are easily detected and displayed in real time. Where hand tools stand on their ends from the effects of the four Tesla magnets buried in their lab.
Given the choice between organizing the Product Creation Studio sock drawer or building a functional CNC router, intrepid intern, Rick Samuelson from Charles Wright Academy , chose to jump into the world of automated machining. Starting with a pile of components left over from a cancelled manufacturing effort, Rick produced a functioning 3D mini-mill capable of engraving his name in a block of wood with the touch of a button.
