    As part of my fundraising efforts for Extra Life this year I offered a custom 3D printed model in a charity auction. I just got notification that it has been printed and is on its way. I can't wait to see the finished product, I got it printed in full-colour sandstone.

    I put it up on my shop under "Charmander Girl" because the person who ordered it sent me a picture of her and her boyfriend in matching Pokemon onesies. =)

    That is a fun way to help fundraising for a good cause!

    Just saw a preview of your 3D model. Like the idea of it having an 8bit look.

    You been doing 3D print design for a while?

    Yeah, I like to stay on top of new technologies in case any of my clients decides they want to use them for a project. I'm not super skilled with 3D, so I just sort of play around. The first thing I designed was a robot that could be attached to your wall and hold classic video game cartridges. That was back in 2012.

    As you can see, he was VERY basic.I used TinkerCad, which is a great site for rapidly prototyping things.

    TinkerCad is decent, but with Fusion 360 now free for individuals, you should step up to the big tools. Both are owned by Autodesk.
