Most of my energy this week was spent thinking about my career, and why I've focused so much energy on metal 3D printing over the past two years. I wrote something of a purpose & strategy statement about this yesterday, which to be honest was a bit exhausting, but it feels good to have it out there.



  • An Australian company called Aurora Labs is building laser based ~$40k metal 3D printers, which apparently do a combination of SLS, SLM, and directed energy deposition. This seems far fetched to me, but what do I know.



Stuff that doesn't fit into my dumb/arbitrary categories.

Love, Spencer.

ps - Thank you to everyone - especially my friends at Gin Lane, Undercurrent, Brilliant Bicycles and on twitter - who referred me to everything here.

We should be closer friends. Coffee's on me.
