10/19/2017
More
We are going to talk about hacking and making today. It’s hacking in a general sense. It’s a definition. Broadly used hacking is the way we’re talking about it today; involved in everything from real hackers in makerspaces to even also incubator-level hacking with software and life hacking. Anil Pattni who I got to meet at the FREECon, the Freelance Conference in Austin, Texas which we went to. It was so interesting to meet him. It was ironic because he started doing some of the first OC...

More
In light of the recent events in Las Vegas, Tom and Tracy talk about 3D print bump stocks. This is not a statement or debate about the Second Amendment or even of the legality of things, but more of a discussion about the ethical, moral and even physical risks that designers must think about when creating something.

Finding a 3D Print Manufacturer with Jason Ray of Paperless Parts

10/5/2017
More
We got an interesting episode today. We’ve got a guest who’s been on before, Jason Ray. It was December 2016 for something called Sightline Maps, which we loved the project because we think it’s really cool, topographically three-dimensionally mapping for government use, for school uses. The idea was that you would topographically print them on 3D printers so schools would learn what the stuff look like. He’s come back to use because he’s working on a new venture. It’s called Paperless...

Building Your Own Food 3D Printer with Nina Hoff of ByFlow

9/28/2017
More
We’re going to interview Nina Hoff of byFlow. She’s the CEO of a Dutch company that specializes in 3D printing for some time but they really spun this off and started this company in 2015 in which she is the CEO. She’s a very young 25-year-old CEO, which we think is amazing. It’s a company she has with her brother and her father and a couple of other partners as well. We just love the idea of really getting something that’s so mainstream in terms of food 3D printing, finally. To send us a...

Affordable Textile Printing with 3D Print Parts with Charlie Runckel of FabricZoom

9/21/2017
More
Today, we’ve got an interview that’s going to be a little bit different. It’s definitely 3D print related but it’s in a very different way. I wanted some prefaces for all our listeners saying while this isn’t absolutely the deepest 3D print subject, it’s still really cool and there are a lot of parallels with the 3D print industry and a lot to learn from it. Especially if you are involved in a 3D print startup that’s maybe making a new machine or even if you’re in the education space. I...

I have a great interview with Grant Mackenzie. He is the sales manager for CEL who does what I’ve referred to in the past as the CEL Robox 3D Printer. Those of you that have listened to Tracy and I for a long time know that we saw their CEL Robox 3D Printer at CES in 2016. That’s more than eighteen months ago, January of 2016. We were very impressed with this 3D printer. We had arranged and we’re told originally we were going to get a review unit. For one reason or another, just the...

Stephania Stefanakou, who we’re going to talk to today, she’s out of Toronto. She not only has an artistic approach mindset. She really wants to take emerging technology like 3D printing in fashion and help the fashion industry move forward and really make wearables wearable. Wearables differently than you might think. Wearable is going to be an overused term in the industry. You say wearables, people naturally think of the Fitbit, SCOTTeVEST or maybe smart shoes that have a chip in them...

8/17/2017
More
We’ve come to meet another person involved in the 3D printing industry from a legal perspective and from a different legal perspective than we’ve interviewed in the past. We tended to interview people who have much more of an intellectual property background and/or directly corporate attorneys for someone in the 3D print industry. We’ve done that way. In this case, Farah Tabibkhoei of Reed Smith is a Senior Associate there but she’s also a founding member of a 3D print legal task force...

Tom and Tracy also discuss how a leap of faith is needed but you have to think about...

Cheap 3D Printers

8/15/2017
More
Today, we’re going to talk cheap 3D printers. We were really impressed to find and to learn that there are some really cheap 3D printers out there. If that’s your biggest limiting factor is cost. They’re kits though, we have to be really careful that most of the ones with the cheap prices and the one we’re particularly talking about, the Lewihe. It stands for length, width, height, the first two letters of each. It’s not bad looking for what is a $75 printer. It’s a kit printer. To send...
