Presented here are some highlights of my work in 3D modeling and 3D printing.  I currently have a MakerBot 2X and Thing-O-Matic at home which can print in ABS or PLA plastic. For final prints I typically use a 3D Systems ProJet 7000 or Stratasys Objet Connex500.

Most of my models have been built in Cinema 4D and post-processed with netfabb.

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).
