3D Printing with Chocolate!

3D Printing with Chocolate!

My new Cocoa Press chocolate printer is up and running! And with all the extra chocolate I've been eating, I really should get up and running too.🤷‍♂️ Did you know you can search Thangs for Cocoa Press models? Just go to the "Explore" tab at the top and click 3D Printers > Cocoa Press. You'll find these "Chocolate Flowers" and all my future Cocoa Press models there.Yum.

Love and Free Filament

Love and Free Filament

These “Abstract Topographical Panels” are part of a collab with 3DHoJor. We’re giving away a bunch of free filament this week. Enter via Instagram, you’ll find my account in the link below.Does your partner have a good sense of humor? Give them this chocolate box and you’ll find out one way or the other. I definitely recommend including some chocolate.If it doesn’t go over as well as you expected, you can always toss in some “Navette Earrings”. Good luck! I am grateful for your support and interest!

Watertight Test Tubes, Growth Algorithms and a reminder not to eat the PLA

Watertight Test Tubes, Growth Algorithms and a reminder not to eat the PLA

This week’s designs mark the culmination of two projects that I’ve been working on for a while, and the start of a new collaboration.Furthering my obsession with spiralized printing, the “Test Tube” design holds water! Take a close look at the stl to see the trick. The small ones are watertight right off the build plate, some of the large ones needed a thin layer of CA glue on the bottom to fully seal. I’ve got some Valentine flower holders in the works for these!The “Mycelium” designs are my first models using a growth algorithm.  At every branch point, the algorithm calculates the direction and length of the next set of branches in order to grow into empty space and avoid collisions. Once I get the algorithm tuned in I’ll be able to take any file and grow mold on it. And you can bet I will. The pieces in the “Five-Piece Plain Flatware Set” are mockup designs for an upcoming collaboration with a company that will be printing out the next set of designs in stainless steel! Until then, don’t eat the PLA. I am grateful for your support and interest!
