uFab is a simple yet powerful quoting platform, that transforms the machining cost estimation with effective process planning, automatic machining plan generation & cross-shop collaboration opening up previously untapped business insights.
I spent the summer of 2018 at Fjord Stockholm working as a front-end developer on uFab. We worked on the web build in an agile 9~ person SCRUM team to design and deliver the project in collaboration with other engineering teams across the globe.
I built components in React, implemented app state logic in Redux & helped extend the Ant component library by writing a lot of CSS and animations. I implemented a way of visualising .obj files using three.js to allow users to visualise the auto-generated machining plans within the tool.
As well as shipping code, I acted as a bridge between the design & engineering teams. By bringing a design voice to the devs & a dev voice to the designers, we could work (mostly) in harmony to satisfy product requirements through beautiful design in a way that was streamlined and healthy for the codebase.
