  • Tailoring Mechanical Designs for 3D-Printing

    Over the last 2 years I have owned and operated a personal 3D printer, as well as operated a 3D printer as part of my job at Neya Systems.

  • Another Example of Where “Fail Quickly” Would Have Helped

    I recently “completed” a home project that came right down to the wire.  This was a fairly unique project, in several respects.  For one, the project itself was to build an LED-laden helmet with sophisticated animation; something to resemble the helmets worn by the two members of the music group Daft Punk.  Another unique thing […]

  • Why Creativity Matters

    In an interesting, and somewhat controversial post, Paul Currant provided a list of reasons why creativity does not belong in the workplace.
