Rendering of scale model of an air flow sensor that I am 3D printing.  The rendering is much prettier than the real thing.

Got in a little sidetrack discussion on a 3D printing board about where innovation is centered in terms of regions, i.e. Left Coast (West Coast) East Coast and rest of country.  Many people would guess that the west coast dominates.The actual results are somewhat surprising as it is evenly spread based on USPTO issued patents.  

The top ten states based on 2013 are:
1. CALIFORNIA
2. TEXAS
3. NEW YORK
4. MASSACHUSETTS
5. WASHINGTON
6. MICHIGAN
7. NEW JERSEY
8. ILLINOIS
9. MINNESOTA
10. PENNSYLVANIA

Pierced ear.

Just had a little fun with the Keyshot add-in to Spaceclaim cad software.  Everything IS BIGGER in Texas including the 10 foot coke bottles.

Please DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS...you help keep our roads clean and we will do the same.

Now that I beat my Obamacare deadline, yesterday, I'm getting two of them so I can do some two fisted CNCing (Cut No! Cut!) while I ma watching videos on my Google Glass(es)!

One thing I got from this is the correct pronunciation of Shapeoko.  I like my way of saying it better, i.e. "Shape-E-Oh-Ko".

This family owned jeweler did a fantastic job for us for a great price. They repaired a bracelet that another jeweler was going to charge us several hundred dollars to fix. The people inside are very nice also.

I took my daughter's old '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee to this Maaco to get a paint job last week. The original paint on the hood and tailgate had peeled off in several places and it was obviously failing. The paint was 19 years old. The car is a 1993 so I did not want to go nuts with the paintjob but wanted it to look good. I got one level up form the basic paint job paying extra for UV blocker. It's a white car so not a real big concern about paint fading. There was a small extra charge for the extra work on the hood and tailgate. We went to pick up the car and it looked great except the tailgate had some issues where it looked like the underlying paint was peeling. They offered to redo it no problem and we came back on Monday and it was better but still had a few small issues. I spoke with the owner and he decided the best approach would be to sand it down and use an epoxy primer. This was because the first primer seemed to be reacting with the original paint and softening it and causing it to curl. The third time was the charm. You might wonder why I gave such a high rating on the review with having to have it redone several times. The reason is that they were so customer focused and handled the satisfaction issues in a fantastic manner. I am a very happy customer.
