Etsy Shop Cameo on Mailbox Monday

Aww, my Etsy Shop snuck into Abuzz Design’s Mailbox Monday Livestream last night.  I love seeing the growing presence of 3D Printing on Etsy.  My shop is just one that Lauren covers (all the links stolen from Lauren’s video description are below).  Be sure to check out and, if possible, support my fellow creators!

A big thanks to Lauren for always being such a supportive member of our great community!  Definitely check out Lauren’s shop at http://etsy.me/2raDpGy

Community Live Stream – Maker Faire Nova and MRRF

I got invited to participate in another live stream last night. This one was hosted by 3D Printed Aspie. There were many new-to-me faces in last night’s stream, so I was thrilled to make even more acquaintances in our great community. The topics of conversation included recaps of two recent events- Maker Faire Nova and MRRF. I got to highlight my Dial-O-Lantern (a pumpkin where you can configure up to 27 difference faces) and a Maker Faire Vase made with the kids at last year’s Maker Faire Nova. In addition, I got to advise my peers at how to watch their young children around rolls of filament.  They… uh…might be tempted to roll it down the stairs. : )

A big thanks to Matt from How I Do It for kicking off the Community Live Chats and for Ryan at 3D Printed Aspie for his hospitality at having me at his channel. : )

My Maker Coin on 3D Printing Industry

3D Benchy is arguably one of the most well known prints out there and it is commonly used for calibration and testing out a printer’s capabilities.  It is no surprise that 3D Printing Industry did an article on the Jolly 3D Printing Torture Test.

The 3D Benchy ‘torture test’ that pushes 3D printers to the limit

And at the very end of the article, my “From Failure Comes Knowledge” makes a cameo (along with some great tips from Joel Telling)

 

Washington Post Highlights the Rockledge Ornament!

I had the honor of 3D Modeling and 3D Printing another ornament to represent the Town of Occoquan for the holidays at the Virginia Executive Mansion.

An article about the ornament appeared in the Prince William section of the Washington Post today.  You can read the full article at https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/occoquan-artist-trims-the-governors-tree-with-a-little-festive-3-d-history/2016/12/02/04ebb97c-b80c-11e6-a677-b608fbb3aaf6_story.html
