Found this on the white board when I arrived to class. It was from the previous class. I'm lucky to be in art school.

I was thinking of a similar idea a few weeks ago, coming up with a "crazy whiteboards at work" image collection. Ours are all programming concepts but they are certainly interesting.

Laser cut my first SketchChair! I designed to be small and comfortable for gaming in the living room and has a small area under the chair for storage. Costs $24 in plywood and took under an hour to set up and cut. It took a total of about 6 hours to learn the program, make a few different designs, and to finalize this one. The program is still early in development (and has a few bugs) but it works for simple designs.

The chair is actually comfortable to sit in but is a little unstable, shifting from side to side due to the design, which I did not foresee. A good learning experience though and hopefully my next chair would be more stable. 

If anyone wants them, my design files are available for download here: http://www.sketchchair.cc/design/190

I wanted it to have some flex, which accounts for the curved design, but the plywood was stiffer than I thought so there isn't noticeable flex. Thanks for the suggestions on the cup holders. I'll see what I can do. ;)

Made two foam pen models on the wood lathe for my model making class. The lathe is fun but the foam dust gets everywhere! A coat of primer was then applied to them.

I need some help! 

I'm designing emergency water filtration solutions for earthquake disasters in my industrial design class. Good design requires understanding the user, so I'm looking for people that have gone through an earthquake situation and are willing to let me interview them. If you know of someone, or you yourself have that experience, please message me.

I'm flexible with the method of interviewing: Google+, email, Skype, text, phone, etc.  

Thanks!

Testing the new 3D printing support in Photoshop CC. It auto-generates support structures/scaffoldings and also seems to 'smooth' the mesh. An STL file can then be exported to be printed. Both features are still in their infancy (scaffolding gets generated mid-air and the smoothing looks kind of blobby), but it's a good start.

Experimental 3D printers from the Architecture students at California College of the Arts. Some outside-the-box designs!

We just got a Nexus 7 for our lab. Going to test it out!
 
Beta test of GCode Simulator v0.99 for Android started !
The new version adds a printer control panel which can control a 3D printer (Sprinter,Marlin,..) using a USB OTG cable. 
It does not support printing yet (next step)

Google offers a new feature for the Play Store to run new Apps through a closed beta test. The beta test is restricted to members of this community (3D Printing) . If you are interested in trying GCode Simulator v0.99 Beta just follow the link below. I tested with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 only, feedback is highly welcome.
