Greetings All! Working with Packt, I wrote a project-based learning book to teach Blender for 3D Printing. It got published last week! I decided my return to YouTube should be called, “You Guys, I Wrote a Book!!!”.
The book walks through four separate projects to teach Blender tools and skills.
I was a wee late as I was trying to sooth a congested son, but I did get to visit with my pals this week at the Friday Night 3D Printing Community Hangout hosted by Matt from How I Do It. We talked about our sources of inspiration… and revealed the results of the new logo! I loved visiting with the community again!
The President of 3DP Events, LLC (the force behind ERRF), @MCHRISP1, was kind enough to give some of my failed Orioles a home. Being from Maryland, he was quite delighted to add one to his Christmas tree….even if their eyes were a little overextruded. : )
I had two monarch butterflies that both lost their antennae. I sent a quick tweet out to the community and offered them up as free to a good home. The Learn 2 Teach program at South End Technology Center quickly volunteered. They used them in a “Migration is Beautiful” display… and wow. That display is beautiful. I should get them to stage all my craft show booths!
Found out about a local Somolia refugee family forced to return to Somalia tomorrow bc of Supreme Court decision.
I finally had a little bit of breathing room after Cyber Week and was able to catch up on some of the YouTube streams. I started with Lauren from Abuzz Designs. It was particularly topical as she was discussing Etsy. I was playing it in the background while I worked and suddenly heard my name. Thank you, Lauren, for such a kind shout out!
Last spring, I printed a number of names for a Girls Who Code Event. I inadvertently printed an extra SOPHIA. Rather than let the name sit around indefinitely in my office, I asked if anyone knew a SOPHIA on Twitter. Lo and Behold, Joe Larson, the 3D Printing Professor, knew one and was able to give my extra print a home. (He even printed a companion piece for her sister). It made me smile to see Joe’s report today that the SOPHIA has reached its home.
After a bit of a hiatus, I got to join my friends for the Friday Night 3D Printing Community Hangout. This week, we were at Mitch 3D. The topic– “Making Money with 3D Prints”. I talked about my craft show and Etsy endeavors as well as doing training sessions.
