Title: Interacting with Personal Fabrication Machines



Abstract:
The recent development in personal fabrication tools, such as laser cutters and 3D printers, allows users to manufacture custom physical objects with much higher precision than they ever could using traditional tools, such as saws and wood chisels. While personal fabrication tools are getting more and more affordable and thus increasingly enter the mass market, they remain difficult to use. In my talk I’m going to discuss two major issues with personal fabrication tools and how we can address them: (1) since current design tools are still difficult to use, I look at how we can improve the workflow by letting users edit in the physical world rather than in the virtual world. (2) Since personal fabrication tools, such as 3D printers, are too slow to effectively iterate over a custom design, I present three systems for speeding up fabrication that allow users to quickly try and revise their prototypes.

Bio:
Stefanie Mueller is a PhD student working with Prof. Patrick Baudisch in the Human Computer Interaction Lab at Hasso Plattner Institute. In her research she develops new interfaces for personal fabrication tools, such as laser cutters and 3D printers. She has published papers at the ACM CHI and UIST conferences and received a Best Paper Award for her work LaserOrigami and an Honorable Mention Award for her work faBrickation. She is a program committee member for CHI 2015, and serves as a student innovation contest co-chair for UIST 2015.
