Friend of mine sent this:

Could be used to at least build the skeleton for a NACES/ACES style seat, or custom spec seats for other rigs.

Their business model/software platform also looks like it could easily be employed to design, build, and distribute Aker-Barnes style sim-pits.

That is an interesting project and I hope they are able to make it all come together. I really need to talk to my neighbor down the street and see if his custom cabinetry shop has a large scale CNC.
Thanks for the link.
