Another Tormach sighting on Kickstarter: DIWire

by: Andrew Grevstad

Tormach products keep popping up in cool Kickstarter videos!

Take a look at DIWire, a cool Kickstarter from  Pensa Labs, owners of a Tormach PCNC 770.  Its a CNC wire bender with integrated design software that lets you bend wire and small tubing in a variety of materials up from .040″-0.125″ in diameter.

 

(Tormach PCNC 770 is at 0:37, in case you missed it)

Think of what you can do with it: fuel lines for miniature engines, mini trusses for model making, antennas, etc.  Here are some neat ideas they’re already demonstrated:

They’ve already met their funding goal, but its not too late to signup for your own DIWire.  Funding period ends Dec. 17.

    DIWire is a very cool product indeed, not surprising they surpassed the goal. They did make a great use of their Tormach CNC milling machine, especially shows when compared to the plywood based prototype.

    The best moment in the video for Tormach spotting is actually at the 3:00 mark. Is it an older 770?
