Creating machining parts at fablab

For a graduation project at the gerrit rietveld academy (graphic design dept.) I'm designing and building a machine for graphical output. I'm using the fablab to produce the mechanical parts I have designed (such as gears and levers). Being able to make custom parts opens up more possibilities and gives you the chance to do rapid prototyping — it speeds up the essential process of trial and error.
