The Maker Faire Bay Area was probably my best maker experience so far. And being my first Maker Faire it felt absolutely amazing. Everything about it was a memory I will never forget. So this is my summary of Maker Faire Bay Area 2016. To start it off, I reached an audience of 100 people […]
I started to make my preparations in my booth. I decorated my table and got my fillet gauges ready. I also had time to meet with other makers, such as Brook Drumm, CEO of Printrbot (really nice guy). It was really fun trying to take an old desk and making into something that I can […]
2 Days before Maker Faire starts, we went to the old prison Alcatraz. It was a really interesting place and I really liked it. We spent most of our time there that day but I think it was worth it. If you happen to visit San Francisco you should most definitely check it out.
On Tuesday, we went to San Francisco and had a walk in the port. The piers and just the city itself was amazing. There we went to Fisherman’s Wharf and we just cruised around San Francisco with the car. We also drove on Lombard Street.
I did not have time to write a daily blog because I got extremely tired to the end of the days thanks to jet lag, so I am writing it now. On Monday, after we landed in America, we first went to rent a car. We actually rented a Fiesta but to my luck, there […]

Good news: I got the fillet gauges… 300 of them in fact 🙂 Bad news: 9 days until MFBA16 and my Printrbot broke 🙁 Right now I am trying to get the Prusa i3 together with my dad before we repair the Printrbot. I quickly need to print more fillet gauges because my flights in […]
My preparations for MFBA16 are continuing and one of them is my new design “Display Frame and Stand”. Basically what it is a frame where you can display what ever you want, such as your social media account and a qr code, or a message that you want to tell someone. The design is based […]
2 weeks until Maker Fair and the preparations are being made. I am printing fillet gauges to sell next to the stainless steel ones, designed a t-shirt and got it made, and the stainless steel ones are in production right now. A lot more stuff to come!
When I first made the apple watch charging dock I had the idea of making the apple logo on it light up by using the charger itself, but it was too complex. So I made a Christmas Tree and a Makey that has an LED inside powered by the Apple Watch’s wireless charger. I designed […]
