A table with the digital design file built in

Physical and digital products combined

The Rev–>Table from Supermechanical comes with the digital file for the design of the table built in. A QR code containing the DXF files for the table is laser-etched into an aluminum plate embedded in the tabletop.

If you want to modify or repair the table, you can get the original files by scanning the code with a smartphone. The code does not access a website, it contains the digital file itself. This way the file is a permanent part of the table.

In the days before everything was considered disposable, products came with repair manuals. This table takes this idea a step further by making it easy to produce replacement parts with digital fabrication.
