One thing I absolutely love about having a Maker Coin celebrating failures is people feel comfortable and free to share their mishaps and failures making the coin. Thingiverse user Waldamore brought me absolute delight this morning with this Make.
Thingiverse user lelopes logged a hilarious “make” of my From Failure Comes Knowledge Maker Coin! Technically, it was a failed Benchy, but it failed in a manner almost identical than what was depicted on my Maker Coin.
I got a good kick out of it. Here’s a comparison of the two (I flipped his picture).
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.
And at the very end of the article, my “From Failure Comes Knowledge” makes a cameo (along with some great tips from Joel Telling)
A little starstruck today. The folks behind 3DBenchy liked my MakerCoin and featured me on their blog.

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.

Thank you so much for watching. Have a fantastic 2017!
