Merry Christmas!

I hope you found a Cube under your tree!  If not, I still hope you found a 3D printer.  Because, there is nothing quite like a 3D printer to begin another year of wonderful creativity.

If you were one of those lucky individuals to receive your own brand new 3D printer, let me point you to the Cubify web site where you will find some great apps to get you started.

Recently, I was privileged to be invited to introduce 3D printing to a great group of young people at the Freestate Challenge Academy in Aberdeen, Maryland.  And, one of the things they enjoyed was making there own ring designs using the Cubify Ring App.

Each student was able to create their own personal ring design.  When they return to pick up their certificates, the ring will be there for them. 

Mentioning the  Ring App is a great time to point out that one of the design goals for the Cube was to make it portable enough to be carried to friends homes for 3D printing parties!  Of all the 3D printers of which I am familiar, the Cube is the most appropriate for these kinds of social gatherings.  And, having apps that require absolutely no 3D CAD skills is a great way to begin enjoying 3D printing for everyone!

So, here's wishing you a magnificently creative year with your new Cube or other 3D printer.  Now, the fun begins! :)
