Bay Lights Project Comes To Life, With MakerBot Support!
| by MakerBot
The Bay Area is all abuzz with the new light installation on the Bay Bridge. It looks amazing.
Did you know that MakerBot played an important part in the Bay Lights project? The lights themselves, high-powered LEDs, are attached to the cables using clips designed and iterated on a MakerBot! In order to get the shape right, the team captured and modeled a section of suspension cable, printed it on a MakerBot, and then made custom clips to suit.
Super user Gian Pablo Villamil has written all about the project here on the MakerBot blog, from the first steps to the testing to the installation. This is super exciting stuff, and we’re thrilled to see it come to life.
