Manufacturing At Home With Evan & Katelyn | Make:

In the news

Great video “Evan & Katelyn.” Lots of important lessons for start ups like Holoseat, some of which we have already learned and some of which are new to us. I was so impressed I just subscribed to their…

Ten New Tone Rings for Our Alpha Testers!


I just wrapped up assembly of the tone rings for our eight Alpha testers and two SyndCon raffle prizes.  Feels good to be wrapping up production and getting ready for the launch of our Alpha testing!

Finally Turning the Corner

Completed the first complete revision of the Holoseat controller housing last night!  Finally covered up all the electronic bits.  What do you think?

Fusion 360 + PrintrBot + Holoseat = Good Times Friday Night


One of the joys of owning a 3D printer is being able to test out parts you are modeling in CAD in almost real time.  As you can see, I just have a little more work left of…
