3d printed chair

I printed this chair ( using an Up! 3d printer.  It was my first time trying 3d printing.  It was pretty neat watching it print, and I was surprised about how good the quality was.  My daughter is now using it as a dollhouse chair.

The Plotter V2

I've been working on getting version 2 of the plotter feature-complete over the last few weeks or so.  Version 2 has a richer UI, and support for 3D implicit plotting and 2D function plotting.  The controls are being slightly tweaked compared to the original.  This has now been uploaded to the windows store.  This release adds some more depth to the experience, and is a release for the users.

The Plotter

I've just submitted an app to the Microsoft Win8 App Store, and its going through certification.  It is a simple graphing program written in DirectX and Xaml.  Expressions can be typed in using the textbox at the top, then the graph may be manipulated with intuitive gestures, including multitouch rotation and pinch zoom, and single touch or mouse arcball rotation.

This was created mostly to learn the basics of Flex and Bison, learn about DirectX and its interaction with Xaml, and learn about the store upload process.  Depending on feedback, I have a backlog of features I'd like to add (implicit plotting, more intuitive interaction with the graph, etc.).
