Earbud Untangler

Spent a bit of time modeling a little printable earbud untangler. It’s been interesting practicing more physical object modeling.

Made it in a few hours on my system at home, printed it the next day on a Craftbot.

Smartphone / Tablet / Ultrabook Holder

I spent a bit too much time playing video games the past few weeks, so my “you need to be productive” meter finally tripped, and I spent a few hours making a “smart device” holder to make up for it.

It was actually not nearly as hard as I thought it would be, but there’s a lot of magic in the design work and design software that I will have to absorb before I’m nearly as good as one of my coworkers (to be fair, she’s a MechE):
