We 3D modeled and rendered table concepts and asked our instagram followers to vote on which one they wanted to see made a reality. The Pulse Table won by a significant margin.

So we fired up the Budmen BUILDER™, our large scale 3D printer, loaded it with beautiful gray plastic and sent it to work printing the Pulse Table.
