About TheGoofy

I was born in Zurich, Switzerland, grew up nearby. After finishing my studies in Electrical Engineering at the ETH in Zurich with a masters degree, I was working as a software developer - initially in semiconductor industries, and later many years in life science. Designing and creating innovative software, interacting with customers, and managing a small team of software developers was my big pleasure. As a hobby I aleays designed and experimented with model airplanes. When 3d-printing became commonly available, a door for a new type of creativity was opened. I had to open this door, and immediately my focus was attracted by mechanical watches and machines, and I stopped my former job.

I believe, future mechanical objects will be highly customisable - not only engraving but also mechanical function. Hardware becomes Software.

By sharing valuable functional designs for free, I'd like to demonstrate the future potential of the new technology. If somebody likes to support my work, I have no objections for a donation :-)
