3D printing tech is geeky and cool- what's printed should be too.
But the tech is difficult to master at the moment - it's not much above university-basement-lab-experiment level, so not yet accessible or practical for widespread consumer use. This technology feels so 'sci-fi' that I want everyone to be able to own a little bit of geek-chic in their hands, without needing to master the technique.
That is what inspires me to design / find / adapt virtual objects and turn them from concepts into physical objects you can own.
From the very small to the absurdly-large and everything in between... they all have their technical and creative challenges! It's mesmerising to take an object designed in 3D software and watch a printer build it. I've been lucky enough to work on projects where I've had to push the technology to its extreme ... in prop building ...
... with itty-bitty scale minatures ...
... and anything in-between, from concepts to technical fabrications for CNC machines, car parts - and even carbon fibre and polycarbonate parts for battle robots!
3D printing is like living in the Star Trek universe - but it takes hours for the replicators to make you a cup, and you have to add the Earl Grey tea yourself!
But hey, all sci-fi technology has to begin somewhere and it's exciting to be at the beginning of that technological revolution.
Thinking of dipping your toes in and getting a 3D printer?
... but they look really scary and complicated and varied and expensive? Well yes, they are all those things 😂, but you don't have to jump in blindfolded. I offer Zoom video sessions for £10p/h, taking you though the world of 3d printing: how they work, what they are capable of, how to operate and maintain them and the estmated costs involved in getting set up, all with practical demonstrations. From there I can provide advanced help to get the most out of your printer and help you become a 3D Printer Master.
Need something printing?
Got something particular in mind? I can probably print it - heck that's how the geek Buddhas were born 😛
