I’ve just completed two weeks as a visiing artist at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. It’s been 21 years since I have been here and I’m happy to say that Artistic Director Tina Aufiero is doing a great job of pushing the school forward into the 21st century while maintaining the atmosphere of […]Read More Greetings From Pilchuck!
Its been a whirlwind ever since I went out to San Francisco for Maker Faire. I meant to post a recap of some of my favorite highlights of the weekend, but have been swamped with Scan-A-Rama and getting ready for this year’s fellowship at Wheaton Arts. This week I’m doing a quick visiting artist stint […]Read More Bay Area Maker Faire Talk: Fredini’s History of Technology as Entertainment
Tomorrow, I fly out to San Francisco to bring the Scan-A-Rama 3D Portrait Studio to the Bay Area. If you’re attending Maker Faire, please stop by to say hi. We will be in the large 3D printing tent and would love to make a 3D portrait for you. I’m also presenting Sunday at 1:30pm on the […]Read More On The Road To Bay Area Makerfaire
It’s been months in the making but I was able to update the installation at the Coney Island Museum today with the Helter Skelter Building. I plan to have a reception event at the museum on Memorial Day, so stay tuned!Read More 3D Printed Luna Park’s Latest Addition is the Helter Skelter!
I’ve recently switched over to using Simplify3D as my default slicer for 3D printing. Its controls are manual support abilities allow for greater control and have been a pleasure to use. It even has the ability to specify multiple print settings within a single print, which can be quite useful. The feature however is somewhat […]Read More A Few Thoughts on the Simplify3D Interface & Multi-process 3D Printing
Coming back from picking up the new printer from Jetguy, I haven’t wasted any time getting to work on maxing out it’s print area. Started right away at printing out my sketch for the gates of heaven piece. The Angel is modeled after Coney Island’s famous Dreamland entranceway, with the addition of a scan of […]Read More First Print on Jetguy’s Big Boy CoreXY 3D Printer
I spent the week driving to and from South Carolina, making a pilgrimage to the Mecca of 3D Printing; the home of Vernon “Jetguy” Barry. I first met Jetguy at NY Makerfaire almost 3 years ago, where he was showing off a massive 3D printer he had built, his Ulti-Replicator with over a meter square build […]Read More Maker Profile: The Maestro of 3D Printer Building– Jetguy!
I’ve been done 3D printing this for a few weeks and finally just took a day off after Westport Makerfaire to spend a few hours starting to glue together the Helter Skelter. I can’t wait to add this to the installation. It’s considerably bigger than I originally realized it would be- it should look great […]Read More Progress on the Helter Skelter
I’m out in Coney Island this week working in a shipping crate to bring my scanning rig to Bay Area Makerfaire but I had a few moments to snap some photos of my Luna Park installation. As soon as I have a moment to start gluing I will be adding a new building: the Helter […]Read More Thompson & Dundy’s Luna Park: 3D Printed- new images
