Making a Low-Poly Model for 3D Printing using Blender

Considering the recent popularity of low-poly 3D models, I was surprised no one had written a tutorial on how to make one. I’ll try to make it simple, but feel free to contact me with any questions!

Silver Spring Maker Faire – September, 2014

Building the Duli: A DIY Pair of 3D Printed Headphones

The Duli headphones are an offshoot of the Yuni project, a successful Kickstarter campaign to create 3D printed headphones that allowed those with unilateral deafness (deafness in one ear) to hear stereo sound via specially designed headphones.

My trip to the 2014 NoVa Mini Maker Faire

Last week, I went to the NoVa Mini Maker Faire with [carrythewhat?] replications.
