Why a blog?
The world has changed in the last few years. Computer-controlled machines like mills, routers, lasers, and especially 3D printers are becoming increasingly affordable. Using nothing but open-source tools, one can create a part, generate toolpaths to run a machine, and then execute those commands at high speed. With code, design, and video-sharing sites, it’s easier than ever to communicate ideas and iteratively refine them.
Affordable, open, and collaborative – this is the new way to make.
It’s time to jump back into making things, after years focusing on a PhD.
I’ll be covering machine builds, project stories, and random thoughts. Enjoy.
