Lunch today was spent with some incredible people. A CEO and CIO of the 8th largest automotive group, CEO and Co-Owner of a software company, and yours truly. What a shame it would have been to spend this time with some intelligent, successful, and well versed managers and not take anything away. Continue reading and […]
Over the weekend I had the striking realization my logo might be able to pass for a Subaru or Ford logo at a distance, and was just the right size. Coincidentally Randy is the proud owner of a black Subaru Impreza Legacy! Today I decided that his front Subaru emblem needed a little upgrade! Of course […]
I designed this because I couldn’t find an automotive themed chess set like this. They were all just nuts and bolts wielded together. You’re more than happy to take this design and manufacture it, all I ask is that I get one! Contact me for the .stls.
Here is a project that is the best way to learn how to solid model. A buddy of mine and I created this in high school. If you want the .stl or Inventor files just contact me!
Here is an interesting approach to an RDA design that I created for fun. I don’t ever see it going mainstream, so why design it? When there was a craze about adding more and more coils to build I figured out why not build a platform that would allow you to add in as many […]
I nicknamed this design the Chameleon RDA. If this design would have made it to production it would have been by far the most versatile RDA on the market. I designed this when the RDTA craze was starting, and we went a different way with the design. As soon as we the newest RDA I […]
The V-Twin RDA was my first production CAD design. Released when I was 18, it was by far the most motivating experience of my life. To have something go from an idea, to renders on a computer, to an actual product was unbelievable. The design was unlike anything else that was on the market at […]
Nobody likes change, yet as much as we deny change, it continues to happen. We didn’t give things permission to change, we didn’t want things to change, and yet they went and changed on us anyways. Was it his fault? Was it her fault? Hell, was it the government’s fault? Are we wasting time trying […]
This was a spin on the Impossible Cube drawing. One of my teachers told me you can’t solid model something that can’t exist in real life. So I built this and showed it to him. I would let him spin it so he could see how I did until he admitted I could design optical […]
There is one word in the world that sounds sweeter than any other thing we can speak, and it’s different for every person. Any guess on what it is? Give up? The sweetest word in the world is a person’s name! Remembering someone’s name is the biggest compliment you could ever bestow on someone, and […]
We’ve discussed sincere appreciation and genuine interest, but if we do it without one simple rule our word may be disregarded every time. Smile! Have you ever noticed how the big genuine smile of a baby makes you feel? It’s contagious! You can’t help but to smile back. The same thing works for us! If […]
One of the best examples of people skills on this earth isn’t even a person, it’s man’s best friend! Have you ever noticed how a dog becomes genuinely excited and interested to see you without any ulterior motives? He doesn’t want to sell you anything, he is just genuinely interested in you without any strings […]
You might be a huge fan of snickers bars, or maybe you really like sushi, but if you were to go fishing would you put that on the hook? Of course not, you would use a worm or a fly. When you go fishing you think about what the fish would want, not what you […]
We switched to a new phone system at our call center to create increase efficiency. There were some hurdles in the implementation but nothing went crazy wrong and it seemed to be operating fine. After the system was in production we started noticing issues, and they kept piling up with the vendor doing absolutely nothing to […]
What is a human’s greatest desire after the necessities of food, water, oxygen, and shelter have been obtained? The feeling of importance. Sigmund Freud put it as the ‘desire to be great’, John Dewey phrased it the ‘desire to be important’. Regardless it is craving that is nearly never satisfied. This desire is what pushes […]
If you ever asked anybody about some of America’s most notorious criminals, no doubt most people would say what they did was wrong, but what did these criminals think of themselves? Two Gun Crowley, a cop killer at the age of 18, wrote a letter while being gunned down by the NYPD stating ‘Under my […]
