FabNodes was a research project to use 3d printing as a way to create modular, custom fabrication systems using simple electric motors and servos. The goal was to create a method whereby users could download print files and combine them with motors to create precise, small scale actuators. The research began by creating a system of printable linear actuators from servos. The final phase of the research built on this to create a custom fabrication system for a specific use. In this phase a system was developed for CNC folded sticky notes that were controlled by a digital drawing.
