I have been enjoying MakerBot Operator tc_fea‘s models up on Thingiverse for a long while. We have featured Tony Cervantes’ pine tree and miniature castle projects here on the MakerBot blog — and his truss bridge kit, outhouse, flower, and his and hers toilets are among my favorite models up on Thingiverse. Tony brings humor and impressive modeling chops to the recreation of everyday elements of modern domestic life (well, in a wide range of centuries).
And now with his Cube Farm Playset he introduces a challenge — can you model the environment where you model and share it with everyone on Thingiverse?
Tony specifically requests that you create more cube farm stations to add to his kit (tag your model in Thingiverse with “cube farm“), but I’d bet he wouldn’t mind if you recreated (to his scale) the home office, backyard hutch, or the secret underground laboratory where you work so that your workstation can be printed out and arranged into Dilbertian cubicle labyrinths by the future middle manager of the world.
I think his challenge is a very good one — and might well be the solid CAD analog to the many self-portraits an apprentice visual artist makes on his or her way to mastering the tools and eyes to create later original work. Stop what you are doing right now and look around you — can you model where you are working and share it with us?
