SOLS: 3D Printed Orthotics & Mass Customization of Footware – Inspiration
http://www.sols.com/ Foot health is important, I should know as I’m the daughter of a podiatrist. I remember getting my first pair of orthotics for my basketball shoes in high school. They were over $300, took weeks to receive, and were extremely uncomfortable when I finally got them to use during practice. Basically, I ended up […]Read more "SOLS: 3D Printed Orthotics & Mass Customization of Footware – Inspiration"
3D Printing with Food – Inspiration
Throughout this project I’ve faced many limitations due to current 3D printing technology due to materiality and scale. I find it encouraging that the 3D printing industry is continuing to evolve so quickly, as it means my project of a full metal cane will soon one day be a reality. When I saw this article […]Read more "3D Printing with Food – Inspiration"

Advancement of Metal 3D Printing to Multipe Materials!
I’ve had a lot of issues figuring out the material fabrication for my project, as I initially envisioned my final project being printed in metal. Given the size of my desired final outcome (2.5-4 feet long), printing this in metal is a bit out of my price range and access of current fabrication methodologies. Although […]Read more "Advancement of Metal 3D Printing to Multipe Materials!"
International Collaboration Netherlands in under 90 Seconds
Upon arrival in Holland, I attempted to literally soak everything up. Whether it was the architecture, the culture, or the multitude of design specimens, I wanted to explore and interact. My project, an aesthetic re-design of a walking cane for disabled individuals fabricated with digital technologies, occupied the back of my mind with each new […]Read more "International Collaboration Netherlands in under 90 Seconds"
Dutch Design Week – The Alienating Effect of Technology
Going beyond simply invention and innovative design, Dutch Design Week featured critical pieces that questioned how society views aging and disability. A series of photographs picturing older adults, perplexed and annoyed with their robot companions, was both amusing and thought-provoking. We often think of advancing and utilizing technology as universally good, but in many instances […]Read more "Dutch Design Week – The Alienating Effect of Technology"
Initial 3D Prototype & Voronoi Cylinder Tutorial in Grasshopper w/ Rhino 3D
Due to software updates of both Rhino & Grasshopper, the tutorial I found for a Voronoi cylinder didn’t work out perfectly, as hoped. I got almost done to the point where it was time to wrap the Voronoi plane around a cylinder, but due to some coding mismatches, it wasn’t possibly. Luckily, Ryan saved the […]Read more "Initial 3D Prototype & Voronoi Cylinder Tutorial in Grasshopper w/ Rhino 3D"
Weightless, Responsive, Light Jewelry
This has nothing to do with my project, but thought it was pretty neat in the context of our class. Maybe some of the others design wearable electronics will find this intriguing. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/239525Read more "Weightless, Responsive, Light Jewelry"
