SketchChair Software–Design and Make Your Own Chair

SketchChair is an application that allows anyone to sketch and test their own design, in these case the chairs. This processing-based program is a collaboration between Greg Saul and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) ERATO Design UI Project in Tokyo, Japan.

“Sketch Chair” is a exploration in using computation and rapid manufacturing techniques to allow users to design and build their own products or in this case their own chairs.

The SketchChair software is easy that even any newbie can operate using a simple 2D sketch-based interface and design validation tools. Reference geometry and figures to aid in design are available on the program. The Sketch Chair program is not complicated, as view the video below. All you have to do is make some sketch and do your test for stability, and the said program then produce files that are ready for laser cutting or ready for CNC Milling Machine. Then the sheet materials that cut by a laser cutter, CNC milling machine are ready for assembly.

The SketchChair software are available and free for download at
