Season 1 Episode 6 – Wazer: What Does "Desktop" Fabrication Actually Mean?

Plus Ed Kramer on running a CNC farm at home in Texas

The desktop machine category has expanded to include industrial machinery that’s sometimes hard to imagine actually putting on a desk. One recent addition is Wazer, a desktop waterjet cutter. Bre and Zach headed to the Brooklyn Navy Yard to see the machine in action, as well learn how it’s made, and ended up confirming their hunch about who the audience for these machines really is, which is not who you might think.
