Eric helped design and build a open sourced plywood house for Maker Faire 2014. This epic 3 day build tool 160 sheets of plywood and about 15 people to complete.
PVC Geodesic Dome
Eric was tasked with creating the largest structure possible in the shortest amount of time with a minimal amount of material. In a matter of weeks he produced two of these 20' geodesic domes made from hardware store PVC pipe. These were featured at Maker Faire and one of Make Magazines most popular articles at the time.
Eric was asked to create an eye catching feature for a trade show. A 9 foot tall dinosaur fit the bill. This was fabricated to not only be huge, but also transportable. Collaborating with an electrical engineer the jaws were also made to be animatronic.
Eric designed this bench to be open source and hackable. When presented to the SketchUp community, users "hacked" it for many different uses. Eric took all of the hacks and made them a reality in his shop.
Ever since getting his first MakerBot in 2009 Eric has been obsessed with 3D printing. Recently he 3D printed a foosball table.
Eric was tasked with making an interesting and engaging game for a trade show booth. He designed this foosball table from scratch. Combing graphic design, hardware, 3D printed players and CNC cut wood demonstrates how multiple diciplines can be brought together using digital fabrication tools.
Foosball Table Build
This video shows the first time Eric brought together all of the parts for his 3D printed and CNC milled foosball table. Using digital fabrication he was able to ensure that all of the parts fit together the first time.
Eric's first "real" job was working in a high end woodshop. He has since gone on to design many pieces of furniture for clients over the years. See some of his work at DigitallyFabbed.com
Eric was tasked with making a huge model of DC. He created this 4x8' model of downtown DC that featured 3D printed and CNC milled buildings along with lights so students could learn where the buildings are located.
Eric was asked to assist in building a repeatable rocket rig for a science class. Students needed a repeatable rocket launcher so they could design, build and test their own rockets.
