Here’s a little gift I had made up for fellow Ambassadors: a 3D printed, DVLUP-branded SIM key for unibody Nokia Lumia phones. It replaces the stock key that can stab delicate areas. Thanks to Shapeways for printing them up, and Rich Dunbar for approving the expense!

Boston area Ambassador Lance shares his thoughts with team member Jan (northwest region).
I helped a little by designing a custom part for the project…
…and here’s the design in progress on SolidWorks. Amazing that it runs on a Surface Pro!
I decided to print up two of the parts. Here Jan enjoys watching one get underway on an UP Plus.
Closer shot of the part in process.
Meanwhile, the Nokia booth got really busy after we put out word about DVLUP tee shirts…
The 3D Systems team kindly printed up another part for us with one of their Cube devices. It was extremely helpful to have this resource at the event! There were 3D printers everywhere, cranking away on all sorts of things.
The two completed parts. Each took about 2 hours to print. I hand-colored the red apple.
The end result. Lance had the novel idea to combine a Netduino with a pressure transducer and replicate the “test your strength” carnival games on a smaller scale. The parts I created were pads. Unfortunately, the pad wore down the pressure transducer, putting the entry at risk, but Radio Shack saved the day with conductor repair compound.
Look who tops the iSmack leader board!
Of course, there was a lot more going on, but these photos essentially cover where I was. ;) Hope to make it next year!
