Want to see the cool things David Pogue, technology columnist for Yahoo Tech, CBS News, and Scientific American, did on his recent visit to NextFab?

Watch this short video by Kurtis Sensenig for a glimpse of the fun we had.

We used a 3D scanner to scan David's face and create a 3D computer file. Then, we incorporated a digital CNC, which means computer numerical control, system. Our ShopBot, which is a CNC router, carved out a replica of his visage from high-density foam. The same 3D file was used to create a 3D printed model of his face!

Jordan Miller, Ph.D., one of the instructors of the Build-Your-Own-3D printer workshop shared a great news with us. Recently his research has been featured in various media including BBC and LA Times. His study involves growing artificial human organs using 3D printing technology. 



The picture above is the 3D printer he uses in his lab for his experiments, and it’s in fact the same 3D printer he will be teaching later this month how to build, tune, and print!


For more info on the workshop, please visit HERE. Still a few seats left!

Here are our Staff’s prime picks for this week.   These range from intelligent prosthetics to not being able to believe what you see.   Please enjoy.   



iWalk   Cutting edge prosthetic leg company founded by double amputee and MIT professor, Dr. Hugh Herr, who lost both legs to frostbite in a mountaineering accident. Still an active climber, Dr Herr related how with certain customized limbs, he has been able to climb better than a 100% natural human. - Evan



Zen and the Art of Making   This is a great newsletter post from MAKE: Magazine about the journey from beginner to expert maker. - Gregg



Pantorouter   This is about 3D Routing the hard way, without CNC. - Carter



Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs on Vimeo   Cool video showing a software interface which allows for 3D objects to be inserted into 2D pictures with realistic lighting and other effects.   “A method to realistically insert synthetic objects into existing photographs without requiring access to the scene or any additional scene measurements.”   There is also an interview with Kevin Karsch, who is the guy responsible for it. - Alex
