In episode 4, I caught up with Chris Thorpe from Flexiscale, a small UK startup making 3D models of the great steam engines of the first industrial revolution. He filled me in on how they’re testing new ways of manufacturing, how they laser scan an entire locomotive, and what we can learn from the Victorians about making, modifying and improving the stuff around us.

I’ve written up some of the podcast on the blog. You can hear the full interview here.
