When to use Opacity versus Fill in PhotoShop   For all you photoshop geeks I must share this one, because for many years, I just couldn’t tell the difference. Why would they even put it there? Now I know!!! - Yulia



Scintillating CNC Zonahedral Structures: The Zome from Robert Bell   “The Zome is a creation of Rob Bell…and is one of the most ingenious structures of modern geometric times.   The complex, fluid shapes are designed in SketchUp, cut out flat [on a ShopBot], and put together with nothing but time, sweat, sandwich breaks and large mallets.” - Alex



Expanding Round Table   This is a video of a round table that expands.   This is extremely creative woodworking. - Brandon



Master hat designer Elvis Pompilio goes 3D printing   3D printed high fashion hat.   This is something that could not have been made with traditional methods.   Yes, it is THAT awesome. - Alex



Carbon Fiber Porsche 911   This maker takes a modern car and improves upon it by replacing the steel body with a carbon fiber one. - Gregg
