1- Pensa Labs DIWire
DIWire is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce curves or 2D shapes that can be soldered or clipped together to create 3D structures.
Use of material depends upon having the appropriate bend head and feed wheels to accommodate the size. We will be carrying the wires in the Materials Store starting July 2017.
- Steel (stainless, galvanized, nylon-coated)
- Cold Bend Plastic
Diameter range varies on the material: limit .0625" or .125"
Maximum dianmeter for steel: 3.5mmMaximum Bend Angle is 135°
