Advanced specialized woodworking tools for the modern world

Applied Woodworking

Applied Woodworking, a startup whose goal is to develop and advance specialized woodworking tools.  Their first product is the RoboPlaner – a CNC like machine which is used to plane (make dimensionally flat) wood slabs of varying size.  Our project was to help them develop the operational software, prototype the device, and develop the branding and messaging.

Device Operation & Interface

We created diagrams and designed a simple hardware interface driven by an Arduino and Raspberry Pi and the developed the software controller to drive the mechanical components.

3D Prototyping

We prototyped the device in Sketch and simulated the hardware/software interfaces in 3D to ensure ease of use and issue free operation.

Branding

The goal was to design a logo and brand which would be flexible for use with different products. It had to be woodworking but with a sense of modernism and forward focus.

Working at Applied Imagination is an enjoyable and challenging experience. Every project is different and presents its own hurdles, thus keeping the workflow fresh and interesting. Much like the work, the employees have thier own distinct skillsets and experiences. Above all they are friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. AI's great attribute is teamwork and pulling everyone's strengths together.
