Build your own Arduino-controlled Wire Bender

 If you don't have a wise-cracking bipedal bending unit handy and need to shape some wire, then this project may be of interest. The staff from the consulting firm PensaNYC created a wire-beding device that can create two- and three-dimensional objects from spools of solid wire. Vector files containing the required shapes are loaded into their software, and the results are quite effective. See the following video for a complete explanation:

All the design files and required information has been published, so visit the PensaNYC blog for more information and download links. When creating more complex circuitry to work with an Arduino-compatible project - consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with
