This episode features an in-depth discussion with Joel Johnson. Together with his brother Justin, Joel has created BoXZY, what they refer to as the most versatile desktop fabrication device on the market. BoXZY is a triple-threat tool that combines a 3D Printer, CNC Mill, and Laser Engraver in one compact cube.
BoXZY's rise to stardom happened seemigly ovenight. They were fully funded on Kickstarter in 24 hours.
But that isn't the whole story.There was a very long road that BoXZY's makers had to endure.
We also talk about makerspaces - the one In particular that Joel and Justin's team works out of is TechShop.
TechShop offers safety and basic usage training on all the tools and equipment, and on various other topics. For most equipment, a safety and usage class must be completed before it may be used.
