He also quickly ran up against some of the limitations of capabilities back then, and I recall feeling a bit embarrassed that we couldn’t offer him a CNC milling machine adequate for his needs (the Roland MDX-540 was our only CNC mill at the time).  Hey Ben - look at us now!... Anyway, I lost touch with Ben back in 2012, and always worried that we had failed him somehow.  Just recently, a colleague of mine sent me a link to a Kickstarter campaign by a new 3D printer company in Princeton, and lo and behold! there was Ben!  I contacted him to say hi and catch up, and he was generous enough to ease my mind on the issue of why he left NextFab...

Here are our Staff Picks for the Week of September 18th, we hope you enjoy them.   We run from artistic to career advancing this week.  


Arduino Arts is an good Arduino beginner’s site I found while researching other Arduino projects.   There are links to tutorials and more.   It’s a relatively new site and has been expanding quickly.   -Gregg


Writing on the wall with der Kritzler (Kritzler is German for Scribbler) is about a cool machine that draws on windows.   -Alex


Bronze Tangle Process - An artist describes his process for casting “tangles” out of bronze.   The process involves 3D printing an investment casting which is then burned away to make the cavity for the bronze.   -Alex


FREE Course: How to Succeed as a Creative Professional.   It’s a 25-week program designed to equip you with the creative and professional skills you need to succeed in your chosen career path – whether you’re an employee, freelancer or creative entrepreneur.   -Yulia

This is a great idea.   How many times have you had to replace your earbuds because of a connection issue rather than a component failure?   The buds themselves outlast the cables.   Ironbuds has come up with a solution.   Read more about it here.   See there Kickstarter page here.   Their own website is here.


They are still taking pledges on Kickstarter.
