Paper Archiecture

Using the Flattery SketchUp Plugin I created a fordable model created out of 5 sheets of paper. You can cut them out using an old school method of a razor blade or you can cut them faster with a laser cutter. So from 3D to 2D and back to 3D!

X-men Knuckle Bump for X-mas!

Collect all three, before the end of the year.  A great last minute, FREE, X-mas gift for all.  They look great on the desk, on the Christmas tree, in a stocking, or helping out with holding the new phone you got for X-mas. Have fun folding and have a great holiday.  Princess, X-men, and Zombie.

Be careful you might poke your eye out!

Knuckle Bump

Here is a sneak peek of a new small project that I am working on, a new hobby that I have picked up recently. Some people call it paper craft or paper toys?

Knuckle Bump! : Zombie

He can hold on to your stuff while you’re busy doing something else.  He will let you paint his nails or give him some ink.  He can also give you a knuckle bump whenever you need one.

FabLabulous!

I recently went to an open house at the revamped Fab Lab located in the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.  Fab Labs were created at MIT and now exist throughout the world.  They were designed to allow (almost) anyone to make (almost) anything.  The tools they use include; milling machines, laser cutters, CNC routers, 3D printers, and freeware.  I was able to participate in one of their shorter 45 minute programs that showed us how to create a key chain in the laser cutter.

Is personal fabrication the future?  I believe it is, there is even a new 3D printer that is now ready for space travel.  So hopefully I will be helping the next generation learn how to use these new tools.  Here is a sneak peek at a program that I am developing for the Fab Lab.

The program will teach a brief tutorial on Google Sketchup and you will get to create something similar with a personal twist.  I also used a Sketchup unfold plugin.
