    I Do Everything!

    I'm the kind of person that has a fundamental need to create. I normally focus on digital 2D illustration and worldbuilding (inventing fictional settings). One day, I bought a 3D printer for fun, and now I'm addicted to it. Oops.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I recommend NOT to store items in direct sunlight. Frequent handling may wear or damage the surface. To remove dust or debris, brush gently with a soft cloth. A little bit of water may be used. DO NOT use any other surface cleaners (soap, alcohol, bleach, etc) as this may damage the finish.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I do not offer gift wrapping or packaging.

What is the SCP Foundation?

To paraphrase from Wikipedia, the SCP Foundation is a fictional secret organization that documents and contains paranormal objects, entities, or places (called SCPs). SCPs range from cute and quirky to hostile and highly destructive.

Users on the SCP Foundation's website collaborate to write these objects, create their stories, and list their Special Containment Procedures. The website was founded in 2008, and users are adding new SCPs to this day.

The SCPs I've chosen to design here are a mix of the most iconic SCPs, and a few less-known personal favorites.

How does 3D Printing work?

Before printing can even begin, I need a 3D model of an object. I make these models myself, using software called Blender.

My 3D printer is an Elegoo Mars 2 Pro. It's an SLA printer (Stereolithography), which is very different from the more common FDM (filament-based) designs. Objects produced by SLA printers are generally smaller, but much more detailed.

SLA printers have a vat of liquid resin. A platform on a motorized arm is suspended above the vat, and a UV light sits underneath everything. The UV light shines up into the resin to solidify (cure) a small layer of it onto the build platform, which raises up to make space for the next layer. In this way, slice by slice, the object is built upside-down as it's lifted out of the resin.
