3D model description
Printed the C64 raspi conversion parts for a coworker, and he had the idea to add a panel-mount USB so he could connect to the raspberry pi through the commodore. He roughed out the design on the original part, and I decided to modify the original part, as the fit wasn't exactly perfect. Several prototype prints later (see the last photo) I have a part which replaces the C64_Pi_Right.stl part from the source and adds provision for a USB panel mount. I've also adjusted the dimensions so it fit Sam's computer better, and added a provision to mount through this piece and into the C64 case.
All the work was done in SketchUp after importing the original STL and cleaning it up with the CleanUp3 plugin.

Note: I wanted to try Cults3D as a possible alternative to Thingiverse, but after giving it a bit of a look, I'm not super impressed. Feel free to visit my Thingiverse page if they can manage to keep that site running:
I went to school as a mechanical engineer, and got interested in 3D modeling, specifically the SDRC I-DEAS CAD/CAM software system. This interest got me my first job working for a CAD/CAM reseller doing pre and post-sales support. I was lucky to be involved in 3D printing in the early 90s - for a demo of rapid prototyping, I modeled the mouse from my HP-UX CAD workstation and it was rendered via stereolithography. I still have that model, but across the years I stopped using CAD and moved to systems administration. Now that 3D printing is affordable and mostly reliable, I've gotten into it and am having a blast. I printed all the usual cute little trinkets and tchotchkes, but quickly got bored of that. What I find most interesting is needing something, then spending a little bit of time in a CAD program and soon after that having a real, functional version of the part in my hand.
I'm a cyclist and bike mechanic as a hobby and a side job, and have found endless applications of 3D printing to both bikes and bike maintenance. Coworkers have also come to me with many varied requests, each of which has been an interesting challenge and an opportunity to learn.
I am constantly learning, constantly trying to challenge myself to learn new things and technologies, so hopefully as I progress my designs will continue to improve.
