@lcuellar63, @printolaser, @Clone,
Thanks! I am going to do a more in-depth write up of all the garage organization stuff I’m doing on the Glowforge once I have more to show for. Glowforge cut fixtures were used on pre-drilling for the casters on the 2x3 subframes:
And here they are under construction:
It’s actually 2 rolls of cabinets - hence the heavy duty casters. Less used stuff like SAE fasteners, house building tools (fish tape, electrical wiring tools, network cable crimpers, stud finders, plumbing fittings, etc are on the back side).
I’m also in the process of designing and printing (as part of my take-a-glowforge-home-and-bang-on-it test) organizational inserts for these workbenches. No promises as to when I can share more pictures though.
@marmak3261 LOL! The rest of the garage is a disaster. Dan had warned us that any pictures we post may be subjected to CSI like treatment; if you look at the reflections in the window, you can see the rest of the mess. I still have not fully unpacked from moving back at the end of May.
@morganstanfield - They are related to the Rostock that your partner built. I’m actually part of the original team that worked on the first delta-style robots, and those machines are my own design - I did all the mechanical engineering, issued bilingual engineering drawings, vetted vendors, sourced parts, dealt with supply chain headaches, and delivered about 200 machines out of my garage and my buddy’s kitchen and garage. BTW, interesting side story; the first ever delta robot prototype built by Johann was named Rostock, after the town that he was born in. But per Reprap tradition, all official release machines are named after biologists and the name Kossel was picked in honor of Albrecht Kossel, who shares a hometown with Johann!
For me personally, it was a painful lesson that just because you have the engineering chops to build something, doesn’t mean it can be turned into a successful business. I learned that I didn’t have what it takes to run a 3D Printer business and I’m very happy that Glowforge has an amazing team that handles all the aspects of a business that I am very bad at (book keeping, customer service, technical support, etc). (Although, I did walk into my Glowforge interview with one of my printers in tow and that probably did help me land my job here. :-D)).
