Upping my manufacturing game. This past Christmas, I took my fabrication skill set past 3D printing, and entered into the world of molding and casting!
Bang! A card game I was introduced to 7 years ago, and has been my favorite since.
The special deluxe edition comes in a great, but very large bullet shaped tin; so I decided to 3D print my own case for it.
Was a fun project to get more experience with my airbrush, and play around with some weathering techniques.
I think the thing, I draw the thing, I print the thing, I have the thing!
So I’ve gotten into 3D printing. A technology I’ve been interested in since college. To take a digital design and print it to the real world, awesome!
I had always thought of 3D printing in terms of making knickknacks and figurines. Neato, but I couldn’t see myself doing that more than once or twice a year; hardly worth the expense and effort of owning a 3D printer. What really got me into 3D printing was my other recent hobby, custom electronics.
When I realized I could design and print custom enclosures for my electronics projects, I suddenly had a more practical reason for owning a 3D printer.

Made a little Christmas gift for my folks :)
