I am a 3D maker and designer. I make parts tailored for the 3D printing process.

I am working on a series of Print-In-Place robots. My first design is out now. Look out!

The Print-In-Place robots are specially designed for 3D printing. They feature articulated moving parts that print simultaneously, and fully assembled. Simply print the robot design, then pop the finished part off the build plate, twist the joints to free them, and you are ready to go with a completed moving robot.
