3D Printed Slim Wallet With MetroCard Slot for EZ Access

  I lost my wallet and was just about to head out to buy one when I reminded myself that I should just design a new one. Sure, there’s a glut of slim wallets out there, but I wanted to put my own take on it. It works really well […]

Cereal Box Brownstone

I love taking stuff you can find from around the house and adding some 3D printed parts to upcycle them into something else. For this project, I added some windows and a door to a cereal box to make it look like a townhouse.  The two blue kids are replicas […]

A 3D Scan as the Modern Daguerreotype

“OK, we’re scanning kids. Stay still.” The man behind the camera instructed us, his subjects, to remain as motionless as possible.  But this is not 1850 and we don’t have to stand still for photographs any more. But this was no ordinary photo shoot. This was a Father’s Day 3D […]
