Dry Erase Pinup Cap Attachment

Another spin on the pin-up dry erase cap idea, these pin-up attachments were designed specifically for Expo brand dry erase markers.

Stuff Press

After spending a few hours over a couple of days doing some rapid prototyping, I ended up with a simple design that packs a bunch of nice little features into a compact fidget toy.

Titan Aero Mount for TAM Series 1

After many years of use, abuse, repairs, upgrades, and the unfortunate closure of Type A Machines in 2018, it was finally time to ditch the old proprietary (and somewhat problematic) G2 extruder with a more modern and open-source tool.

3D Printed Art Deco Sconce

While watching some highly educational TV in my living room one day, I finally decided that it was time to try and do something about the sofa side table lights reflecting off the screen.

3D Printed Lamp Revisited

Some time back in 2017, I challenged myself to design a table lamp that could be 3D printed in such a way that no material would be wasted, and the lamp socket and wiring could just drop into place.

MTW Create Spool Holder

After owning a Maker’s Tool Works (MTW) Create 3D printer for a few years, I decided to take some time to design a more usable filament spool holder for it.

Misc 3D Prints

A photographic collection of objects that I 3D printed using my FDM and SLA 3D printers at home for various projects and for fun. Most of these prints were created using 3D models downloaded from the web (Thingiverse).

3D Ponics Shelf

Custom built shelving system using ceramic pot drip nozzles and lots of other 3D printed parts.

Shrinkage II

Another client came to me wanting to duplicate an interestingly shaped lamp, but they wanted it to fit on a nightlight. 

Shrinkage I

Another client came to me wanting to duplicate their boat design while shrinking it down to only 5 inches long.


For “Fun-ctionality”

Early last year (2017) I felt the urge to create a design that would take advantage of the full print volume of one of my larger format FDM 3D printers.

Dry Erase Pinup Cap

I designed this for a You3Dit.com request. I referenced the cap design/dimensions from kielerrr’s Fast-Draw Cap Marker Holder on Thingiverse

Upgrades II

In an effort to improve cooling of prints and prevent curling/warping of parts, I also decided to design my own fan shroud


A client came to me wanting to duplicate a cap for the wheels on his show car.

Custom Lampshade

I designed this lampshade for a You3Dit request which the customer was trying to duplicate the look of some existing lampshades, while changing the overall shape to this tall elongated version.


A client of mine needed a “looks-like” prototype of a bicycle brake light designed and fabricated

Custom Computers

Photos of some of the computers I built while doing business as Custom Computers & Repairs

Upgrades I

In an effort to improve the usability of one of my FDM 3D printers, I decided it was time to implement an “automatic bed-leveling system.”To do so, I needed to design a custom bracket to mount a proximity sensor to the print-head carriage.

B3 Innovations Pico Extruder fan shrouds for Type A Machines Series 1

I wanted to improve my prints after upgrading the hotend on my Type A Machines Series 1

3D Printed Quadcopter Build

One of my first major projects that I decided to utilize my first 3D printer for was to build a Crossfire 2, which is a 3D printable quadcopter that I learned about from Make Magazine.

SSD Stackers

While working as a “Jack-of-all-IT,” I was building a high-end workstation for a client, but I was unable to fit all of the data drives they wanted into the computer case the system was being built into. My solution was to design a special bracket that I call the SSD Stacker

Brita Everyday Water Pitcher Spout Flap Replacement

This is a replacement flap that I slapped together for older Brita Everyday Water Pitchers (I think they removed the flap on newer models).

Data In a Bottle

For my final project while studying at San Francisco State University I came up with a new product concept called D-BUB, or the “Data BackUp Bottle.”


Stalaglight was the final project for my Rapid Prototyping (DAI 460) class at San Francisco State University.


While studying Industrial Design at San Francisco State University we had a group project in our Rhino class which required us to design a line of products that shared the same design language. My group was focusing on kitchen products, and my product was a rice cooker.

Alessi/Michael Graves Kettle Render

While studying Advanced Modeling & Rendering (DAI 521) at San Francisco State University, one of our early exercises was to model the Alessi/Michael Graves 1985 tea kettle

Computer Fuel

My Computer Fuel USB Flash Drive concept was my second project for DAI 421 – Technical Drawing 2: Solidworks class at San Francisco State University.

CNC Milled Folding Table

This was a collaborative project I worked on with Garrett Faulkner in our DAI 460 (Rapid Prototyping) class at San Francisco State University.

Maker’s Mark Bottle Render

While studying Technical Drawing 2 (3D Solid Modeling – SolidWorks / DAI 421) at San Francisco State University I was given an assignment to 3D model a Maker’s Mark whisky bottle.


Easy-Grate was my first project for my Technical Drawing 2: Solidworks (DAI 421) class at San Francisco State University. For this project we were tasked with designing some sort of hand tool.

Here’s My Card

Hand shaped business card holder. DAI 460 – Rapid Prototyping – Project 1 – Laser-cutter and etching.

Electric Hand Dryer Lamp

One time electric hand dryer, converted into 40 second lamp. This is actually an assignment I had to turn in for a college project one semester (Spring 2013).

DAI 321 AutoCAD – SFSU

Just a collection of 2D and 3D drawings I made for assignments in my first 3D modeling class using AutoCAD.

Robotic Hand Prototype

Way back (in 2012) before I had access to any 3D printers, I was enrolled in a fun class at San Francisco State University called Electronics and Robotics in Conceptual Design. The class focused primarily on learning how to use an Arduino for the purpose of prototyping electronics projects.

ART 231 Drawings – SFSU Fall 2011

Art 231 was one of the first classes I took at San Francisco State, and below are some photos of my drawings that came out of the class.
