Ask anybody who plays in a code-based environment such as Rhino’s Grasshopper and you’re bound to meet some people doing wild and crazy things. While it may take a little bit of time getting familiar with a code environment–assuming you don’t know printf(“hello world”) from an actual printer–the results can oftentimes be stunning and worth the extra effort.

Take for example Montreal-based digital artifact designer Maxime Beauchemin’s Laser Cut Lamp design that he generated from a few lines of Javascript.

Using–a sort of prototyping platform for Javascript–Beauchemin generated vectors that he was able to ‘print’ in 3D via a laser cutter.

What’s more? He opened up the project for you to try it out, too!
