So, recently, I've been doing much more work with 3D models. Very much helped by having been lent a 3D printer. Its got great potential. But also some problems. The technology isn't in its infancy, but is still getting there.

But two things (at least) make it exciting.

So far today I have:

Carried out trouble shooting on the 3D printer that I am borrowing, turns out that the way to trouble shoot a 3D printer is to turn it on an off again! Good to know, that.

Researched what bread and butter product I might like to make for my ceramics...

Been a while since I’ve been here.  Views are slowly coalescing. The Grafton centre showing I did provided interesting food for thought, as has been some of the project development work. A comment from M on the course that “you are a perfectionist” struck me as strange...

So the first production piece is to be on the idea of a curve, a piece which visitors to the college can interact with, and is mainly ceramic. I have a number of  ideas in mind, but what is interesting is what I do and don't want the piece to be about. Firstly, it can'...

With a seeming inability to type the, always typing th e(whatever word) it has taken me an hour to get to this point in the blog. That will teach me not to say "isn't technology wonderful" just before I started this, this blog, thing.
