About ssd

I want to make things of beauty, things of function, things of convenience, things of fun. Toys, tools, tokens.

I seem to be uploading about half of my designs. the rest are too simple or too specialized. I probably should upload some of my test parts too.

Typical characteristics of my parts:

  • Minimalistic, to reduce build time and material use without sacrificing strength
  • No need for support structure or built in supports
  • Most parts are parametric and include tolerance
  • Lack of rounded corners because I rely on skeinforge to add them (or I use a file after printing) and its generally too much bother to add them with openscad
