3D Printing an Image

I recently published this instructable detailing my method of creating 3D prints from 2D images. 3D Print an Image Advertisements

Carpet Broom

Frustrated with constantly pulling my fiancee’s hairs out from between my toes, I made a carpet broom to keep living room clean. You can read more about it here, $2 Carpet Broom.

Pokemon Go Badge

While riding the Pokemon Go train, I fervently worked to get this NFC embedded badge printed before the official Pokemon Go Plus released. Turns out they postponed the Plus to infinity and the game is no longer the unifying social force it used to be here in the Bay. I still keep this badge on my desk…

Porda Coin

I made a quick NFC tag which, when scanned, directs new acquaintances to this blog. The logo on the coins is a refined version of a logo my dad drew years ago. It’s based on my initials, DHP.

Home Improvement

I wrote a few instructables, some unpublished, about some home improvements my girlfriend and I threw together in the first few weeks we moved in. We promised to throw a housewarming party two weeks after moving in, which I can tell you is an amazing incentive to get work done quickly. We antiqued a few…

OnHub Internet Well

My entry into the OnHub Design Challenge on Myminifactory.com was a new shell for the router to mimic a classic well. Because nowadays we don’t need to travel far for sources of water, but we do need to travel to the source of internet to obtain our maximum download speeds. I’m happy to say that this…

Maple Plank

My entry in the Cubify Summer Sunglasses Challenge and my first time attempt at 3D printing which won me a Cube 2 3D printer. This is where the journey started for me. Looking back now I can see numerous ways to improve my design. Most notable the fact that all of the veins were sketched individually…

The Ideal Scout

As an eagle scout, I had a lot of fun printing this statue scanned by Jerry7171. I have been following Jerry since his Moses scan controversy where intellectual property laws and 3D printing butted heads. Jerry’s scans look great and are a great way to show off SLA capabilities and sometimes even stress test a…

Steam Junction Coin

Borrowing the body from the Business Coin project, I had a little fun with the new logo for the new makerspace of Burlington, NC. I have been closely involved with the Alamance Makers Guild since I joined in 2014 and I am extremely excited to see their new property, Steam Junction, grow into an amazing…

Business Coin

I’ve been handing out laser cut business cards, which people usually love, but that didn’t seem like a fair representation of my professional work. With a print area of 64×40 mm, the Ember is not well suited for printing business cards so I decided to print business coins. Using a facial scan from a now forgotten…

Ratatouille Sign

It’s been three years in the making, but I finally gained access to a waterjet and was able to cut this sign out. There will be an instructable shortly

Golden Snitch

In my lifelong quest to prove I’m cool to my big sister, I made this as a present for her birthday. She’s a huge Harry Potter fan and, like all VT alum, a hokie for life. For the record, my sister is older than me and still listening to Harry Potter on tape every night….
