What are you interested in creating?

I'd like to learn about designing prototypes for easy production on laser cutters, and how to layout the t slots and tabs used in common laser cut designs

What software/equipment/fabrication techniques would you like to learn about?

I have basic knowledge of CAD programs to enable rudimentary design.

What relevant knowledge or skill set do you possess (eg, computer programming, carpentry...etc.)?

I'd like to protect novel ideas, but also share improvements derived from the OSH movement.

Do you want to protect your idea/intellectual property?

If my designs are novel enough to have commercial appeal, I'd like to license them, but so far i have not had a product that met this threshold.


I'm a maker/hacker living in Mt Pleasant, Washington, DC. I have a full woodshop and have a wolfstrap based repstrap and a reprap prusa mendel 3d printer. I'll be converting the repstrap to a cnc router and hope to build more things.
