PhD Researcher, Lecturer, Industrial Designer, Kickstarter, 3D Printing Geek.
2014 saw me return to university (not again!), this time as a sessional lecturer while I also completed an Honours research program into 3D printing a bicycle frame. It’s definitely got people talking (see articles on i.Materialise, 3ders.org, 3dprint.com) which at the moment is the point – the more ideas and knowledge we share about this booming technology, the better for everyone. Now I’ve moved into a PhD program to continue the journey, and look beyond just 3D printing to all the other exciting technologies that are emerging and converging.
Documenting my research has become a habit I can’t shake, so I’m using this blog to keep track of ongoing projects and experiments into everything 3D printing and digital technology (at least the ones that aren’t top secret!). Hopefully some of the discoveries, failures and stories will benefit those of you riding this roller-coaster with me.
Below you will find links to a range of places you can follow my work, and stay up to date with the latest behind-the-scenes projects. In 2017 I have also had a successful Kickstarter project which you might enjoy tracking called Robot Picasso – a hacked 3D printer capable of drawing abstract portraits automatically.
Please share, comment and enjoy.
