For my loyal readers’ edification and amusement, here’s a photo of a math-and-algorithm-generated sculpture I printed yesterday on a MakerBot Replicator 2.

Steel House

Written by  on April 8, 2014

Hello all,

For the past year here in Rockland, Maine, I’ve been engaged in a series of projects that has led to my participation in the creation of Steel House, a hybrid design / prototyping studio, coworking space, educational space, and artistic laboratory. These links lead to more information:

(I created the interactive art installation visible on the wall in some of the photos.)

Please visit the Steel House website occasionally to see what else we’re up to!

Backlighting

I’m working on a backlighting system for my 3D-printed scores that will move in time with the music. Here’s a very brief demo video (the audio is just background noise):

This is a draft “score” of a new composition, with bike helmet for scale.

A 3D Print

Written by  on November 20, 2012

I have – of course – run into and around various and sundry obstacles in transforming my printer from “functional” to “useful”. But it’s working pretty well now. Below is a flower vase I printed today (with an apple for scale).

Big 3D Printer is Functional!

I finally have something to show for the past 5 months of toil! Now that the large majority of the work of fabrication is behind me, I can get back to making music and art.

3D Printer Tidbit

This is part of the 3D printer I’m building. I printed it with another 3D printer. So: printers are printing other printers!

Building a Big 3D Printer

Written by  on May 29, 2012

I’m currently in the process of converting an old hole punching machine (a “Newborn Screen Laboratory Automated Blood Spot Punch”, according to the manual) into a big 3D printer. Chris Meyer, founder of Sector 67 and an accomplished engineer (which I am not), has been very generous in donating advice, time, and labor to this project. When we’re done, I’ll be able to print scores of approximate dimension 2′x2′. A photo of the machine in its current state is below.
