REEL & RESUME
Octopod Underwater Salvage Vehicle
My thesis project which I designed, printed and built. Make sure to look at past posts which go into great detail about the modeling and printing process.
Maker Faire New York 2012 and is featured on the MAKE site and in their "Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing" issue.
It has also been featured on the Objet site and with great pride on Tested, an awesome site which features my hero, Adam Savage from Mythbusters. (Seriously, check out the videos of Adam's workshop).
3D printed TARDIS kit. We are offering a regular TARDIS, Half Wolf TARDIS (shown) and a lighting upgrade package (soldering skills required).
They are up on our Etsy Store, so check it out.
We will have these and iris boxes at NYC Maker Faire
Sat, Sept 21 - Sun, Sept 22! Look for Charlesworth Dynamics exhibit #11803.
Buckaroo Banzai Jet Car
My other on-going project is the Jet Car from one of my favorite films, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. It was my first 3D print and was featured on the Popular Mechanics site with a walkthrough of how it was done.
The Jet Car was on display in Vienna, Austria for Vienna Design Week 2012.

3D Prints - Misc
The Octopod and Jet Car are my two major creations. These are my other creations which range from useful to fun. Most of these were printed on my Thing-o-matic or Replicator 2X at home.
A selection of hands-on projects I have tackled, including a Stormtrooper Blaster.
Q: What did you go to school for?
A: I went to New York University's Center for Advanced Digital Applications in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies for a Masters of Science in Digital Imaging and Design. Whew.
I originally intended to be an animator but started modeling more and then found 3D printing and that was that.
Q: What do you want to do with 3D printing?
A: Ideally I would like to work in toy design or prop fabrication. I like combining digital models with real-life hardware.
Q: Are the Octopod & Jet Car for sale?
A: Currently the Octopod would sell for about $1000 fully assembled. The Jet Car would run about $450. If you would like to make a purchase, contact me and we will work it out.
Q: That's expensive! Do you have anything cheaper!?
A: That's the bummer about 3D printing, it's not cheap yet. I am working on smaller, non-functional versions of the Octopod that would be cheaper. The Jet Car too. It's a tricky process because as you shrink the objects down, many parts become too small or delicate to print therefore requiring a redesign of the model itself. If you want to be informed of items for sale, contact me and I will put you on a mailing list.
Q: How about the Iris Box, can I buy one of those?
A: If you have a 3D printer, download it from Thingiverse and make one! However, I do plan on making these available and they will be affordable. Until I get some kind of pay site setup, just contact me and we'll figure it out.
Q: Can I have your files so I can print my own?
A: At this time, other than what I have up on Thingiverse, I don't plan on releasing the files for the Octopod and Jet Car. They took many months of work and I'm not quite ready to let them go. Thanks for asking.
Q: What do you model your stuff in?
A: I use Cinema 4D, a professional production suite. It has great modeling tools and recently added the ability to model in scale. I am not an organic modeler, but I do use ZBrush for some stuff, particularly decimating the model (reducing polygon count). I then use MeshLab and netfabb for STL clean-up.
Q: What do you print on?
A: I typically use the Objet Connex 500 which uses photopolymer jetting (deposits resin on print bed, hardens with UV light) and can print 2 types of material at the same time. These are by far the nicest prints I have done but I also use the ZCorp 650 which uses a plaster-like powder. I have used Shapeways a few times with nice results using their Strong and Flexible nylon material. I also own a MK7 MakerBot Thing-o-matic for home printing.
