What filament do you use?
You can see most of the filaments I use on my blog - http://thrinter.com/filaments

What printer do you use?
I started with an Afinia H-Series in 2012, so all my earliest designs are printed on that printer. I got a RigidBot through Kickstarter in 2014 and it was my primary printer until I built an Eustathios Spider v2 in 2015. My latest printer is a customized Cranestyle Mini.

How do you photograph your prints?
I use a light tent, with two flashes to light most of the photos. I use a variety of surfaces to photograph on, but most often use brushed aluminum or translucent white plastic.

Can I sell 3D prints of your designs?
You can sell 3D prints any of my original designs if you're printing them yourself (keep in mind some are remixes of other people's work so you'll have to contact them). In exchange, please consider using my amazon affiliate link if you can. Please do not repost these designs on other sites or use my pictures for selling your prints.

Can you join [enter name of online 3d file repository here] and post your designs to our website?
Sorry, I can barely manage to maintain my Thingiverse accounts, and don't have the bandwidth to handle more accounts.
