I am just amazed, and I am not easily amazed. I saw this SketchChair application at the Ponoko Blog. This is just plain amazing. I love Flat-pack and this is like Flat-pack crack. This program is a collaboration between Greg Saul and the JST ERATO Design UI Project in Tokyo. This is a Processing based program that allows anyone to simply sketch a chair and the program generates the parts required to build it in real time. The parts are ready to be cut on a CNC router or laser cutter.
