The other day I posted a picture on Facebook that showed me wearing a fake pair of Google Glasses. The fake Google Glasses were grabbed from thingiverse and 3D printed by Engineer of Applied Innovation, Evan Atherton.
Along with colleagues Arthur Harsuvanakit, Charlott Vallon, and Heather Kerrick, Evan works under the guidance of Director of Strategic Innovation, Maurice Conti. In addition to their own projects, they take on tasks at the behest of Carl Bass. Although Carl designs and fabricates himself, he has more ideas than spare time as dictated by his CEO duties. Carl also dreams up projects that test the limits of our software's abilities.
One of Evan's own projects is an R2-D2 Dome.
Evan is using Autodesk Fusion 360 to reproduce the robot character from Star Wars. Fusion 360 is the first complete cloud-based 3D CAD solution for product design. His project files can be found at:
Evan's job is a combination of fun and putting our software's capabilities to the test. Employees use our software to make things so we don't just believe what our software can do, we know what it can do.
Re-creation and recreation are alive in the lab.
