Old Master Q was a Hong Kong comic strip created by Alfonso Wong in the 60s that got serialised and distributed throughout South-East Asia. When I was still in primary school in the 70s, I remember how I used to save up to buy Old Master Q comics from the neighbourhood bookshops that sold them. The comics were black and white and so cheap I did not sacrifice much to afford them. The drawing were pretty good for a comic strip but what got me hooked was the kind of slap-stick hong kong style comedy that made fun of everything old and new in a fast changing world.
This is the first time lapse video of 3D printing that I have made in 2017. The 3D printer used is the Trinus 3D by Kodama, a $299 printer I recently received from a kickstarter campaign. The 3D model being printed is the famous Treefrog by MorenaP. MorenaP also has her own Etsy store.
3D Printing has been called a gimmick and fad recently but personally, 3D Printing has never been more exciting and practical in 2016.

These are the top 5 practical 3D prints that I have done in 2016:
Having just seen Rogue One – A Star Wars Story and being totally blown away by how good it is, I had to find something to make that is Star Wars related. I managed to find a beautiful 3D model of a U-Wing on Thingiverse and decided to start up my Flashforge Dreamer and print it with some spare filament a friend gave me.
