Design your own Pendant Lamp

Igloo.org are about to launch The Igloo configurator, a web-based platform that enables design
professionals to reach a global audience of engaged consumers. With 3D printing? I hear you gasp in anticipation, it looks like with a few case studies on their site that hint at the potential including a pendant lamp, bowl and shoe configurator (his and hers).

Increasing the awesomeness by a factor of infinity, Igloo have shared their process of how they formulated the 3D front end via HTML + Google spreadsheet + processing sketch + back end model all of which is made available with a GPL license.

The igloo project was initiated at the Product Architecture Lab at Stevens Institute of Technology.

Keep an eye on their site and blog to see how the project develops. 

If you have an application or configurator you are working on take a look at the Shapeways API to see how you can easily  output to 3D print.
