Awesome Make of the “From Failure, Comes Knowledge” Maker Coin

Eagle eye social media star Heather from A Pyro Design spotted my Maker Coin on Twitter.  What a fantastic “make” of the English Version of the Maker Coin!

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)


Wishing You Many Fails in 2017!

When we are pushing the limits, we are going to encounter fails. But through failure comes knowledge and at times, it even brings about extra creativity. On that note, I hope 2017 brings you many fails!

In December, I did a last minute contribution to the A Pyro Design Maker Coin Holiday Tree. In my coin, I wanted to celebrate the failures that comes along with learning 3D Printing. I call it, “From Failure Comes Knowledge“. This video details the inspirations behind the coin, a little taste of the modeling in Blender, and the [embarrassing] two fails I had printing it.
