A Movement in the Making – www.custommade.com

Loving the graphics these guys use, had to share this blog from www.custommade.com:

 The Emergence of the Maker Movement

The maker movement is made up of some 135 million adults in the U.S., however, it’s more than just a U.S. movement. Maker faires that celebrate the movement have popped up in Japan, Italy, Norway, and Chile. Makers use their skills to craft items such as clothing, baked goods, jewelry, and art; contributing $29 billion to the U.S. economy annually.

From 3D printers to laser cutters—makers employ various tools to create their goods. Many gather at makerspaces where they share these resources. Makerspaces are havens for techies, artists, and entrepreneurs. Through crowdfunding, makers are able to facilitate small-scale funding for these gathering spaces.

Learn more about the maker movement below and how it’s influencing the way we craft.

3D printing, education and families – a 3dprintingindustry.com interview with Chris Elsworthy, designer of Robox

By | Design, Education, Press | No Comments

A very nice interview and article by Davide Sher from 3Dprintingindustry.com

Chris talks about 3D printers in education and getting some value from “screen time” which accounts for a long periods of spare time for many children, typically in games. Chris suggests that more of this time could be spent learning the skills they will use in later life and 3D printers can be a link between the virtual creations of our children and reality. This is certainly evident in the new offering from the Tinkercad folk in Tinkerplay which is aimed directly at getting children into design by making it really fun.

unLimited Edition element14 Pi 2 Case

By | Chris Elsworthy Design Blog, Stuff and Things | No Comments

We were asked by element14 to design a case to fit the new Raspberry Pi 2

The images below show the case, it was printed in 2 halves, we paused our Robox and changed filament colour part way through each print to create this great effect.
