We are Heather and Joe, two software and maker geeks from Seattle, WA, USA.
Neither of us has a true CAD background, but Heather has utilized a variety of CAD software packages on a hobbyist level. Both of us have a strong interest in 3d printing - everything from the basic reprap to voxels, and hope to work with related devices for future projects.
Presently, we have an HCI software package that has been in the works for several years, and is about to get demo'ed to investors. We have a few designs that we're mucking up but are hoping to see what the project, which is very physical design open, brings up in the brains of others and maybe even find a partner to create some industrial design packages to go with permutations of the software. We are also hoping to learn more about sourcing for parts for runs of a few thousand at a time, as one avenue we would like to pursue whether or not investor meetings lead to anything, is setting up our own productions of some permutations of the software and devices. Here's our thread related to that: www.mechanicaldesignforum.com/showthread...ce-device%29-designs
Essentially, this is all very new and exciting stuff at a very new and exciting time! We look forward to seeing what this design community is all about. : - )
