New Etsy Shop for Custom designed 3D Prints
I've opened a CAD Monkey Army Etsy shop for custom designs I have 3D printed. Check it out here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CADMonkeyArmy
Making Chips with the Bridgeport
Taking classes at the Makerspace on milling basics. It's really cool seeing how far along technology has advanced! I definitely would prefer to be lazy and just send a gcode to a CNC machine!

After some research I found that SketchFab works great with WordPress! First you upload a 3D model to … Continue reading Add 3D Models to WordPress!
