D.I.Wire Plus

The world’s first desktop CNC wire bender

Despite the prevalence of desktop prototyping machines like 3-D printers, there was still a critical gap in the DIY industrial-design tool repertoire.

The D.I.Wire Plus is the world’s first desktop CNC wire bender. A new archetype for desktop manufacturing and rapid prototyping, the D.I.Wire transforms drawn curves into bent wire that can be assembled to make just about anything. The D.I.Wire is the flagship product of Pensa’s venture arm, Pensa Labs.
