In this brief tutorial, we show you how to build an inexpensive whiteboard using a garment rack, zipties and showerboard. We also demonstrate some useful accessories we designed in CAD and printed on our Makerbot, including a holder for whiteboard markers, hooks for flipcharts and a clip for attaching an eraser-caddy. THE PROBLEM:Every design studio goes through mountains of post-it notes while brainstorming and charting ideas. We love the portability of flip-chart posters, but even after moving to a big studio in Salem we never had enough wall space. THE SOLUTIONThen we found Make Space by Scott Doorley and Scott Witthoft at the Stanford’s d-school.
