Behind the scenes, I have become involved with 3DP Events, LLC which is putting together an East Coast RepRap Festival for Summer 2018. Last Friday, Nick Angers spoke with Repkord with what we have in the works!
I added some new Etsy listings over the weekend!!! Enjoy!
|Total Solar Eclipse Necklace
Celebrating the totality on August 21, 2017, I made myself a 3D printed necklace.
|Blue-Footed Booby Magnet
Thinking about Darwin and the Galapagos Islands, I added the Blue-Footed Booby to my 3D Printed Aviary.
By request, I have started making dog magnets. Love how the cuddly, fluffy Samoyed turned out, particularly his pink tongue.

Adding to my dog collection– German Shepard
My heart is full from the 3D Printing Community. I got tagged on Instagram and learned that I helped inspire @taos78 to forge through failures and conquer multiple color prints. <3
I am so happy to help others in our great community!
A lovely surprise on Twitter today. I got the most wonderful shout out from @PrintThatThing. He’s famous, you know. Yeah, that’s right. I helped the Cat Armor Guy save a 60 hour print! Absolutely thrilled, thrilled, thrilled to help.

My oldest son, my 3D Printed Schrodinger’s Cat, and myself got a mention in Day 58 of #MakeEveryDay by Repkord. And from this video, I learned I’m getting a brand new nerdy T-shirt! Thanks https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS-7gf11VOxIwnWcMJazj8g Repkord!
Last night, Richard at Zidim hosted our Friday 3D Printing Community Live Stream. The topic this week – “Summer Prints”. We had two new faces join us this week. Glenn and Xander from 3D Fun King joined us.
As for me, I chatted about recent new models – dogs and Blue Footed Boobies. I shared some wine holders and wine stoppers as well as Cork Kitties.
Have you ever tried filling your prints with Sand (or something heavy) to add weight to a print?

What a thrill. This kinda makes me want to release more of my models. : )
My “day job” has been demanding extra attention which has been leaving my own TGAW 3D Channel a little neglected. Thanks to some community hangouts, however, I’m still making some appearances on YouTube. This weekend, I participated in about 4 1/2 hours of live streams.
This week the Friday 3D Printing Community Hangout was hosted by Nilla Bean. The topic was a fascinating one– Community Outreach. This one was one of my favorite discussions and there were a few surprises in the mix. Josh Ajima from Design Make Teach was able to join us despite short notice and a busy week of STEM Camp and speaking at the International Society for Technology in Education conference in Houston. Another surprise guest– Chuck Hellebuyck from Filament Friday fame. He started off with a bang with a wonderfully inspiring endorsement of Snap Circuits.
I usually try to get myself off the stream at midnight my time. This week, the conversation was so fascinating, I stayed on an extra hour. Great stream, team!
Ladies of 3D Printing Live Stream
Just about 11 hours after I signed off of #F3DCH, I joined a group of talented women on the 3D Printing Ladies Live Stream! We continued the discussion of Community Outreach and chatted about some technical stuff like 0.25mm nozzles.
This discussion will stick with me a while. A community question from 3D Printed Aspie on STEM versus STEAM made me realize how fitting it is that I have a photo of Kurt Vonnegut hanging above my MakerGear M2.
Another highlight– a cameo from my oldest son, Sagan, to give Joel Telling (his favorite YouTuber) an on-air high five. Oooh and also my bird, Blue Tail Talon Scream, made his YouTube debut.

The 3D Printing Ladies Live Stream airs the first Saturday of each month. Keep an eye on Twitter for the August episode!
Back in April I heard some exciting news about Maker Box. In celebration of “International Women in Engineering Week”, Maker Box was going to make June’s shipment to be Ladies’ Choice. I was asked if I had any recommendations. One of my suggestions– ColorFabb corkFill.
Earlier today I was introduced to a new 3D Printing Family at the YouTube Channel FunKing3D. And what do you know, their latest video was a June MakerBox Unboxing. One of the selections– CorkFill! Coincidence?
My other suggestions were some “Ada Lovelace Lavender” and “Grace Hopper Grey”. Sadly, I did not see my fictitious, completely made up colors included.
