This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Material Choices for 3D Prints
One of the things that I am working on in the 3D Printing space are some experiments with various materials for prints. The Ultimaker 2 is designed to print a variety of filaments and my addition of the Olson block makes it an even better platform for doing so given that I can have nozzles reserved for these special materials or even use a steel nozzle in some cases (carbon fibre or stone).
This page is the launch point for articles on the topic of material choices.
