While CNC Manufacturing is nothing new or groundbreaking, the possibility of reducing the steps needed to take an idea from a sketch -> to Grasshopper -> to ShapeDiver -> to eCommerce -> to CNC production is key in order for Modifile to keep costs down.

Not only ShapeDiver allows Modifile to quickly share their CNC Furniture designs with anyone in the world via a web browser, but Grasshopper's key strengths provide robust tools for configuring and outputting files that can be fed directly to a CNC machine.
