From the Studio: Team collaborates in Fusion 360 to create handle for Ember

Posted by Sam Hobish on Feb 2, 2016 9:50:29 AM

Using Fusion 360, teams from Minneapolis, Boston and San Diego designed a handle that attaches to the top of the Ember printer, making it easier to transport. Essential to the design of this handle were the collaborative tools in Fusion, which allowed designers to easily share and modify their iterations across the team. The teams used a combination of T-Splines, direct editing and parametric modeling to create a simple and effective solution for taking Ember on the go.

From our perspective, this is truly a great example of the spirit of Ember’s open-architecture. We love seeing how users manipulate their machines to better suit their individual and business needs. As always, we’d love to see how you have customized your Ember so make sure to share some pictures with us.
