About ThePlanetMike

I got my first printer in the fall of 2011 and have been printing ferociously ever since. I design objects mostly in Sketchup. I prefer to create custom functional objects that meet everyday needs, but I also enjoy creating more whimsical designs. I'm now using a beautiful Printrbot Plus. I believe in elegant, simple, tested solutions to problems. While my designs are free, I am available to be hired to help you design and print your ideas!
