Hi, From Pasadena CA

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am impentiently awaiting my Ultimaker 2 (should get here on Wednesday) which will replace a Makerbot replicator (first gen). The makerbot has been great for learning, but getting a good print requires a lot of babysitting and constantly tweaking the machine. I am hoping that the ultimaker 2 will give me more time printing and less time tweaking. I have not printed with PLA before ( only ABS ), so new experience there.

For 3d I use C4D, Rhino and solid works.

cheers.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
