Bought myself a 3D printer!

About a month ago I bought myself a MakerBot Replicator 2! It’s been pretty fun to tinker with, but I haven’t been able to spend as much time with it as I have wanted to. Buying it was definitely worth the investment. One of my first experiments with the printer is a logo prototype I have been printing, and re-printing, for a friend who owns a local indoor bike park. Here’s a couple images of the first prototype. Low quality print presets, nothing too fancy :)

2nd Term @ PSU

My 2nd term wasn’t all that eventful. Finished another architecture history class and had an intro to environmental design class where I made a silly little video with a couple of my classmates, attempting to inform people about the environmental impact of buying coffee to-go versus the experience of sitting down to have a cup of coffee. It was one of the better ones out of the groups of students, and is supposed to be up on the PSU website at some point, but I haven’t been able to find it so I am just going to post it here.

I just finished up my first studio class in Architecture at Portland State University! Here are my drawings and models of the Agosta house. The house can be found on San Juan Island Washington.

I recently had the opportunity to get back to my technical roots and skin a handful of animals for an awesome family-friendly carnival-game PS3 title for the PlayStation Move. I used Maya to skin both bipedal and quadrupedal animals. They were quite stylized and friendly in nature. The game’s style was heavily influenced by the feature film Spirited Away. But in contrast to the film, the game (Carnival Island) doesn’t have any distinctive oriental themes and design elements.
