We’ve just had a new shipment of our metal laser cut parts for the leg prototypes. This shipment includes our “ninja-throwing star” hubcap.
We use laser-cut metal parts to allow for rapid prototyping and construction, with most parts simply requiring welding together. As the parts are laser cut we have a lot of flexibility for individual parts. The metal is cut with incredible accuracy, allowing us to achieve the sub-millimeter level precision MARV is being designed to.
We have been using the excellent https://fractory.com/ platform for our laser cutting orders. The platform provides automatic pricing (including automatic adjustments for quantity) for all of the laser cut parts, allowing us to budget effectively.
