Pensa Labs is home to the DIWire, the first desktop CNC wire bender. It is a spin-off of Pensa LLC, a Brooklyn-based design firm with a track record of developing successful products, brands and strategies. Our vision at Pensa Labs is to encourage creativity by improving the accessibility of digital fabrication.
The DIWire is a new archetype for desktop manufacturing and rapid prototyping, which transforms drawn curves into bent wire that can be assembled to make just about anything. It can bend various metals and plastics, allowing for output to be used as the final product.
The DIWire’s fast and accurate output enables anyone to explore their creativity. Potential uses include antennas, jewelry, architecture models, design prototypes, art, furniture, small crafts, lighting, puppetry, robotics, short run production, signage and the list goes on. The DIWire is unique in being the only desktop tool for fabricating in wire, tube, and rod form. By being transportable, accessible and affordable, it fills the market gap between time consuming hand-bending and large scale production,
which is too expensive for custom, short-run or one-time productions.
And, because the DIWire allows 2D input with 3D output, it is accessible for anyone and everyone. With speed and simplicity, this revolutionary machine changes the dynamics of prototype production and manufacturing and is surely the solution that businesses, makers, and designers have been waiting for.
