Short post- but I wanted to show some of my recent prints. Check out this D&D dice roller I printed. It turned out beautifully (gray PLA, set at 20% infill): Here is an actual useful print, mounts for my brother's router: In use:
As many of you know from my previous post, I left off discussing the misalignment of my Pinda Probe over the print bed. I wasn't sure how big of an issue it was going to be, until I tried calibrating the XYZ axis. The nozzle began hitting the bed after the 3rd pinda position and … Continue reading Documenting my Failures (and ultimate Success) with the Prusa Printer
Hi all! I apologize for the delayed post, for as you know, I have been quite busy with my new Prusa printer. It has been a bit of a rocky road to start, but I'm still really excited for what this printer has in store for me and all the great things I'll print in … Continue reading Regarding my Prusa i3 MK2S
Short post- but I purchased my very first personal 3D printer! A Prusa i3 MK2S- I will go into details in a longer post soon, but it arrived a few days ago and I'm ready to begin setting it up. Wish me luck!

I know this is a rather delayed post, but I think some of the topics brought up at the 3DDC event are worth discussing in this blog. There were panels of expert makers and 3D printing specialists, including some of our … Continue reading 3DDC 2016

It's a great place to work on your own projects or take classes to learn how to use the machinery. I work as a front desk assistant and therefore am able to … Continue reading Lasercutter Rotary Attachment: an Experiment
I've been super excited for the release of the Vive ever since I saw this video of artist Alex Briskham creating 3D art with the Vive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYY-DZ14i9E. As an artist and architect, I am interested in how VR technology will play a role in the representation of 3D spaces. Currently, most architecture firms utilize renders, plans, and sections … Continue reading My first Vive Experience
