additive manufacturing \ 3d printing

July 6, 2015 at 8:03 am

I am looking to discover the properties of different 3d filaments after the shape has been printed.  So far Nylon seems adequate but maybe heavier than it needs to be..  I hope to work with a local company to get about ten pieces printed to test the prints using different […]


Mokume and Damascus

February 15, 2015 at 10:43 pm

I am working now on a project that will probably look nicer than anything I’ve done at the bench to date!  The beauty of organic and striations of separately alloyed gold pressed with heat and then milled and polished.  The colors will be back-set against a faceted stone and finally […]


metal secrets

March 3, 2014 at 10:54 pm

The secrets of metal are the same secrets as cooking… chemistry.  I’ve known the properties of metal almost to an intuitive degree for almost two decades.  The molecular bonds that you can almost see when the temperature hits the right color are the same as vinegar and oil after salt […]

Crate Bench

Crate Bench

I believe that the technology has finally moved beyond the scanner wand for 3d.  I can’t wait for a few positive reviews and a list of the limitations for the Makerbot Digitizer.  This machine could be the cotton gin of our time.  Industrial design has been tied down by the […]


skinning cats

August 27, 2013 at 5:10 pm

I can’t imagine there was ever a time when skinning cats was an object of debate… so lets consider it Schrodinger’s cat.  I just learned 3 new ways to accomplish the same task in a computer program.  I remember when it was even more frustrating to learn a program with […]
