Here's a functional 3D printed prototype I designed for Chris Tatum @ctatum870 from a napkin sketch. When you're shaving the back of your head and can't see what you're doing, the Mirazor mirror attachment solves that problem! Chris is currently working on the production stage and I'm excited to see Mirazor hit the market!
My soldering skills are a little rusty, but I picked it back up like riding a bike!
Daniel Norée (creator of benchy) danielnoree.com designed an RC car based off F1 car in Fusion360 and 3D printed it! And to top that it's open source and continuously being improved. Daniel has a great answer for "what can you do with a 3D printer" and I look forward to everything else he comes up … Continue reading OpenRC F1 3D printed RC car
Designing CAD models in 3D is hugely beneficial for visualization and avoiding interferences. While we design in 3D in AutoCAD, we are limited to 2D screen shots (unless a DWG viewer is downlaoded) to share with our clients. Microstation by default has the ability to "print" a model to a 3D PDF (a trick I … Continue reading Convert AutoCAD models to 3D PDF
This spool holder has seen some miles in the last year and I noticed it had cracked and miraculously still holding on! So I went back to the drawing board! I had originally found this on thingiverse.com but I redesigned for narrower spools. (I can't help myself, I have to tweak everything somehow!) In this … Continue reading Spool Holder Redesign
If you thought 3D Printing was just for making toys and nick nacks, check this out! Joel Telling, YouTube's 3D Printing Nerd printed a new tether for his gas cap with flexible filament. No special trips to the dealership or parts store, just grab a model and print, never leaving the house! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1dCwD1ZFXE ...
I purchased SolidWorks 2017 a few months ago and really like it! You can easily create smart models and drawings that make design changes a breeze! When I get stuck in complex smart setups tech support from GoEngineer has more than helpful. I couldn't be happier!
