We’ll take a look at a new online 3D design tool from SketchUp and a new 3D printer from Ultimaker. Learn how to quickly create your own prop Star Wars Gonk droid, as well as an interactive Stranger Things alphabet wall.

I’ve been having fun documenting, reviewing and recording project builds, but I can’t escape the fact that they take a few weeks to turn around. To fill the time in between, I thought it might be fun to host a weekly show rounding up some of the more interesting maker news and projects from the week.
So, here’s installment #1. I knocked the whole thing out in 24 hours — from script to export. I’ve bounced it off my friends and already I’ve received some useful feedback for the next episode.
If you have some suggestions for me, leave me a comment on the show page on YouTube.
