Weeks ago my daughter came to me with a toy catalog to show me a pink kitchen set she wanted. 1 I suggested that she use her existing pink kitchen set. She pointed out that this particular kitchen set had a microwave where hers did not. I offered that she and I could design and print one to go with her existing set. She responded that she would need it large enough to match the rest of her set. I explained that one of the only people I knew who was capable of printing something that large was Michael Curry and that we might need to ask him.
Fast forward to yesterday after work. She wanted to draw plans for things we could print on our Thing-O-Matic. One of her requests was a blender. We drew one and then she asked if we could really print it. I suggested that we could – but that we’d need to do it in big pieces and might need to ask Webca for help.
Then she piped up, “Or Michael Curry.”
Webca, Michael Curry – you guys are heroes in our house.
- By way of context, my daughter is a little over four years old. [↩]
