3D Printing a Miniature Cityscape Diorama!

Cue the 3D printing timelapse music because it's time for another resin print showcase. Norm shares two projects he's been tinkering with, starting with a beautifully modeled cityscape designed by The Lazy Forger. Created for 6mm scale tabletop gaming, this set of buildings are also ripe for making diorama bases for display models or other printed figures. We also use Meshmixer to slice a character portrait for a quick and easy mixed media aesthetic.

Adam Savage's Favorite Tools: Fabric Steamer (and a New Hat!)

Rolling Garment Steamer: https://amzn.to/3oo9xBU
Portable Fabric Steamer: https://amzn.to/3hMx2U3

Adam tries on a new hat he just bought, and in the process shows how he can make use of a garment steamer and wooden hat stretcher to make this new fedora fit better. For cosplayers and costumers, a good garment steamer is an essential piece of equipment, and portable fabric steamers like ones you find in hotel rooms are oftentimes preferred over irons!

Behind the Scenes: Editing Spatial Audio in Virtual Reality!

Go behind the scenes in our video production with a look at two pieces of technology we've recently been using to make our videos. Joey tests the Hollyland Lark 150 wireless microphone system as an alternative to the wireless mic packs we've previously used, and clips one on himself in a demonstration of the VR spatial audio mixing tools he's been using for the editing of our Tested VR videos!
