About this site... Welcome!

I've been using Composer to set up and maintain my web site for many years, but most of my efforts have been devoted to working on more projects rather than learning how to set up and manage a web site, so the old site has been a little "undynamic" and lags many months behind my project activities.  I recently decided to try a different approach because I'd like the site to be more up-to-date and professional looking, and because I'd like to get some of that sweet Google Ad-sense money coming in to help offset the cost of the site.

Other factors that led to the change:

  1. About 2 years ago I wrote an Instructable on a 3D printer design and after weeks of effort gathering, organizing, and presenting the information as a contest entry, I won a tee-shirt.  After that I decided that when I get my web site/blog set up the way I like, I was never going to go through that sort of effort to drive traffic to someone else's web site again.
  2. I have numerous 3D print designs posted at Thingiverse and Youmagine.  I've decided to stop posting most of my designs to those sites, too.
In the future, I may still post relatively small projects at Instructables for contest entries, but big stuff is going to stay right here.  The same goes for Youmagine and Thingiverse.

Over the last few years I've been designing and building 3D printers, and trying to maintain and upgrade printers at the Milwaukee Makerspace.  My latest printer design will be posted here shortly, in bite-size pieces where I can describe specific aspects of the design in as much detail as I feel is necessary.  But now that that printer is just about complete, I want to move on to more creative work making use of the 3D printers I have designed, built, and maintained, so you can expect to see more print designs here.

Oh yeah, if you like my 3D printer designs and have a significant budget, I can design and build one for you.  A near duplicate of one of my existing designs will be faster turn-around, but a full custom design won't take that much longer, depending on what you want, of course.
