MAKE Holiday Gift Guide

Attack of the Zombie Claus! Zombie by Skimbal, “Brains” hat by countspatula

Superstar 3DP object designer Michael Curry (aka Skimbal) designed a plethora of incredible jumbo minifigs that can be fabricated on additive desktop machines. He has designed an incredible range of characters, from Star Wars figurines, to Top Gear’s “The Stig” to Breaking Bad’s Heisenberg to Walking Dead zombies.

These prints make perfect gifts for fans of many different genres. You can download and print all of his amazing designs from his Thingiverse page. All quotes and quips in the slideshow are copied from Skimbal’s thing posts.

Anna Kaziunas France

Digital Fabrication Editor of Maker Media.

She runs the digital fabrication hardware testing for Make:. If you’re a vendor who would like to submit a tool for review (3D printer, CNC, laser cutter, fab software etc.), contact her directly at: anna [@] makermedia [dot] com.

She’s the section editor for Make: Skill Builder. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. But — In order to really tweak and bend something, you need to understand it! If you’d like to write a tightly focused piece on a core maker skill in science / engineering / craft / art / architecture / robotics / fabrication etc. (whatever) that you’d like to teach to other makers — and have Make: work with you to illustrate for magazine publication — let her know!

She’s very interested in your ideas for practical digital fabrication focused books — anything that turns codes into things — hardware and software.

She’s also the Dean of the global Fab Academy program, the co-author of Getting Started with MakerBot, compiled the Make: 3D Printing book and ran the 2015 and 2014 3D Printer Shootout Weekend testing events.

She likes things that are computer-controlled, parametric, and open source — preferably all three.

Find her on her personal site, Twitter, , and Facebook.
