Ponoko



Ponoko is a web based, on-demand, manufacturer (the very abbreviated description). They offer a service to designers, (anyone really) that combines the infrastructure required to create objects, sell them, and even collaborate with others within their own community.

While I really like the idea and have considered using the site from time to time, the aspects I find most interesting and informative at the moment are the instructional blog articles. They are written in such a way that anyone can understand the ideas, yet they contain really useful tips on a range of subjects such as web based selling, production tolerances and general design ideas.

Hello David,

I read on your profile description that you are very interested in furniture design. As you wrote about Ponoko's cool service you might also be interested in our EARTH tables, lampshades and bowls.
