We have the coolest office in existence! Old school arcade games, TV's everywhere, snacks, soda, beer! I think the partners never want us leaving. But my favorite is our Makerbot Replicator. For a year-and-a-half now I’ve been itching to try my hand at 3D modeling and printing. 3D printing isn’t necessarily new, in fact early 3D printing technologies date back to the 80’s. But it hasn’t been too many years that you could have one on on your desktop. What an amazing technology with countless possibilities!
So, what to create? It should be something useful! Something that, when its used, you’re proud to say, “hey, I made that!”-- not some sweat shop in China. So, one day, as I was looking for a drink in the fridge, I noticed that we could use a better way of organizing our cans. You’ve probably seen the plastic can dispensers that you can easily purchase at Wal-Mart for a few bucks, but why buy one when you can make your own.
