hinging story stick
After evaluating this first one, I have a second prototype designed in sketchup and ready to print.
Since it's my invention, I got to name it after myself. It's not likely to be broadly marketed any time soon, because you have to know the technique in order for it to be of any use to you. For those who have never made anything before in their lives, 3-D printers are amazing. You can sit back and watch it do its work. The results will be dependent on your understanding of the process. For example, to build the long slot for screws, I had to build a system of bridge supports to hold it up during forming.
The photo above is one I took of Bill Coperthwaite demonstrating the use of one of his block knives.
Make, fix and create...
