Useful and Creative Designs

My imagination revolves around useful or functional things. I design the things I need around the house or office. The designs help with organization, efficiency, and satisfaction of use. 

  • Storage Cube and Storage Cube Plus - These storage cubes allow me to organize the raw material for my jewelry findings, fasteners, and chain using the drawers below. Multiple configurations possible. 

  • Large, Medium, and Small Drawers for the Storage Cubes above.

  • Chain Spool - Designed in 2 pieces for printability on FFF printers. Each piece fits into each other for a snug fit. Once together, these can be placed inside of the Medium Drawer for the Storage Cubes. I use them for jewelry chain organization. Others could use them for thread, wire, etc. 

  • Tarp Hook Holder - I store my motorcycle outside against my house. This holder will allow me to place an S-hook through the hole on the side as well as let me fasten it to the underside of the roof with 2 screws. I can then loop the tarp grommet through the hook to create a sort of tent against the house. 
  • Photo added for reference: this piece screws into say a window frame while the hook allows for the holder to be pulled against. 

Velocity Stacks - Velocity stacks are a mechanical invention to help bring air more smoothly into the carburetors of an engine. Smoother air induction creates better performance. This is my attempt at desigining a working velocity stack. Typically these are machine from metal. 

I also hobby around with jewelry design, manufacturing, and selling via etsy.com. Here are a couple pieces I have designed in 123D. These didnt take much skill, but they represent my style.

  • Shell Ring

  • His and Hers wedding bands - My girlfriend and I will be getting married in 2015. We work with our hands and dont often wear jewelry. We think these are perfect for us. These were also my first Shapeways prints. They turned out great. Silver will be my next order.
