About Big-E

Designer, artist, pinstriper and fabricator. Ex I.T. Professional... I wear many hats.
I've always got something cookin' in my head*. Visit my YouTube channel to see what I'm up to:
If you like my work, please feel free to follow me here on Thingiverse and subscribe to my Youtube channel.
I primarily use a MakerBot Replicator 2 to produce my designs for Thingiverse**.

If you like or print any of my designs, and want me to keep them coming, please consider tipping me! It takes time to make and post things; and I also had to replace a RAMPS board recently. Every little bit helps!

*Design skill level is subjective. I set it to advanced due to the fact that I can pretty much design any part I need to for whatever application I set my mind to. There are definitely those with more skill than myself; I freely admit to this, but I have been actively engaged in 3d modelling since my teen years (about 30+ years experience). While I do my best to create designs to work with the vast majority of machines and provide the best printing and assembly instructions possible, YMMV.

**Currently I have four machines: MB Rep2, customized Makerfarm Prusa i3, Customized Printerbot Simple tower. and a machine I designed based off of the smartrap/Fabrap platform, which is an ongoing, evolving testbed. Thingiverse really needs to allow multiple printers for profiles, as many on here own more than one printer.
