Jet Car - My First 3D Print

When I started my degree I was primarily interested in animation and modeling.  I like animating and think I have a good eye for timing but also realize that I don't LOVE it.  I DO love building things both in the real and digital world, so I started concentrating more on modeling.

In my second year, at NYU CADA it took a a summer course on Rapid Prototyping for Toys and that's what made everything click for me.  It combined the digital 3D modeling and the real-world hands-on of machines and physical models.  We spent the semester building a toy on the computer which we then sent to a print lab and had an actual, physical model made.  I built the Jet Car from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.


For details of how this was done, please check out the write up I did for Popular Mechanics:
