I make things, and I sometimes attend classes at Columbia University - but primarily - I make things ~ especially from scratch... Please don't mind the currently perceived dearth of designs on my page, I very recently up-started my YouMagine - I have a lot of things I'm currently working on, so there will be many more designs to come in the near future - I just need to find time to gather and complete them all first. Unlike most super cool things/ideas on this site, my mission is to upload very simple, fully tested and 100% ready to print - directly from my page - 'things' that require little to no experience or skill in drafting and/or 3D printing for the downloader... I'm trying to accomplish this level of simplicity all while still aspiring to make sweet-ass products everyone can enjoy and use - completely open-source and free of charge.
Now my goal is to find and collaborative with as many people who think and feel the same way and with the same level passion as I do regarding this amazing movement. So If anyone has an idea but can't make it themselves, or would like to collaborate their existing ideas with me - tell me about it and I'll try my best to work with you and make it happen. When we all work together in pursuit of obtaining perfection and simplicity in our lives through creation - we will....
My email is: JJP2162@columbia.edu ... Feel free to drop me a line with anything you want to say - from a simple idea, to a kind word or proposed improvement regarding any of my designs... Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated... In closing - always remember to KEEP ON MAKING!!!
