30 Seconds in the Shop - 3D Printer Edition

Posted by Flyhouse on Jan 12, 2017 9:25:00 AM

Advances in 3D printing have come a long way over the last few years. Flyhouse recently brought a 3D printer on to our team and we are excited to see what it can do. To break it in, we created a basic locking ring and waited an hour to see what would come of it. The results are below in our time-lapse video.

30 Seconds in the Shop (Performer Flying Training)

Posted by Flyhouse on Oct 5, 2016 11:45:00 AM

Most days are normal (and busy) in the Flyhouse shop. Fabricate, rinse and repeat. On certain days, theater groups come in and test out our performer flying Ziplifts before they use them in a show. Today one of those days. Lookingglass Theater in conjunction with The Actor's Gymnasium trained on our system for an upcoming touring show in Atlanta.

Flyhouse is taking 30 Seconds in the Shop on the road this week to a project we have been working on. 
 
When a 109-year-old church becomes the new performance space for an aerial and circus arts training facility, Flyhouse got the call to produce a brand new rigging grid system.
 
Flyhouse has worked with Aloft Loft and Aloft Circus Arts for many years to assist in performer flying rigging, performer flying safety, and performer flying training. We are excited for their new space to open and allow individuals the opportunity to soar through the air.
