While I'm waiting for the mod on my motherboard I'd like to feature a project I found on Reddit that really caught my attention. The project and story behind it is best told by the original author, so I'll leave it to him. Be sure to mouse over the images for the description or click here.
And I'd be remiss to myself not to point out that chapter 3 and 10 of the beginner's guide to modeling for home 3D printer, 3D printing blueprints, will teach you these skills for yourself. And if you don't have a 3D printer, you can always hire me to make it for you.
