Xometry has added 7 new exciting materials, including these three groundbreaking options*:
Random Twig - The random twig is nature's wooden snowflake. No one twig is the same as another. Xometry upcycles twigs from only the healthiest trees and bushes, guaranteeing optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Random twigs are perfect for end-use parts, including marshmallow skewers as part of the S'more assembly process.
Fallen Branch - Branches are one of the best available materials on the artisanal whittling market. They are like random twigs, only bigger. Our team of Fallen Branch Experts will tirelessly search fields and forests across the U.S. to find the perfect organic branches that fall after storms. And they are nearly always free. Rest-assured, that cost savings will be passed on to you!
Round Log - Our logs are cut and transported by our nationwide network of well-groomed lumberjacks. The lumberjacks hand-pick the organically-grown trees that will make the best logs, looking specifically for roundness and number of rings. Our craftsmen love using this material on their hand-cranked lathes, and logs can handle complex geometry given their large build volumes.
