The digital file still did not pick up all of the cracks, crevices, and surface features, but I think the overall model turned out cute. Clay sculpture … Continue reading 3D Scanning a Turtle
I have recently been drawing fish for a new design project. These are hand drawn in sharpie and then scanned in in black and white mode and converted to vector outlines in Illustrator. I then open the vectors in the CAD program Solidworks and create models by extruding the shapes. In this way I can use … Continue reading Bait Fish & Big Fish Drawings

It has a fairly constrained scanning area so I have been starting out small with a few of my little clay sculptures. This guy is a simplistic whale with a hole that runs through the center. I digitally smoothed it and … Continue reading 3D Scanning a Whale

We made and sold simple circuit kits that were custom designed laser-cut critters with a LED, coin cell battery, battery holder, and conductive thread. It was a great experience … Continue reading Oscar Eastwood @ Maker Faire Atlanta

I switched to a smaller diameter wick with the 2nd batch of candles I made so … Continue reading Stump Candle Update
