Last Year I made a New Year’s resolution to upload 1 open source design each day.
It was very ambitious, and ultimately doomed to failure. Too optimistic. I eventually culled it down to “1 Design per weekday” – but it still got the better of me.

One demotivating factor was when Thingiverse accidentally lost file descriptions with degree signs (°) or diameter signs in (Ø). Both of these feature quite prominently on my description pages (and here).


It was fun. So here I go again!


This is basically keeping me off Facebook or Youtube, represents an average of 3-4hours computer time a week (How long do you watch Kittens on YouTube for?) – and hopefully does something constructive.

I do get a kick when people upload prints they’ve done, or follow me.

Titles and post-noms aside, this is a learning curve for me. I hope you enjoy browsing the items I've drawn and designed so far.


Learning is to be actively pursued by everyone on the planet. Imagine how much better the world would be if we banned watching the Cardassians and made people go and learn how stuff works and how to address needs? How little does your time mean to you that you will watch 15 minutes of adverts per hour just to watch what contrived situation Kim and Kenye get up to? Is your life better at the end of that hour? 


Or are you left thinking "Why do they have all that crap they don't need and people can't even find clean water to drink in the developing world?"

Learn a new skill, and help make our planet better. It might not be 3D printing or design, it may never pan out to be something people need. But its better than sitting down and watching Nicole and Paris or Dougie Houser meeting his mother or whatever it is for the moment. (Rant over).
