Thanks Andrew, I just went to http://www.makehuman.org/ and checked it out.
This looks VERY interesting. I will definitely have to see what I can do

Glad you could make it out!
Btw, that GPL'd parametric human model thing I mentioned is at

Andrew and the Cupcake in action (the other cupcakes were delicious). Truly
a nice piece of equipment, and small enough for any enthusiast (my wife
still told me "No" when I suggested getting one - dang!). The laser cutter
was impressive too, and the soldering station is really well equipped. I
just might have to move in.
> Andrew - thanks for the suggestion to build a fully articulated, human
model based upon my 3D Studio renderings. I would not try to accomplish
such a task on my own, perhaps others at Mod Lab would be interested in a
collaberative project. It certainly would be an envelope-pushing
undertaking; requiring robotics, electronics, artistic painting and advanced
model making skills.

parts (build volume 11" x 7" x 8") that would not be easily built on the
Cupcake, my employer has offered use of company equipment at a minimal cost
to Mod Lab members.

like a perfect venue for him to gain some insight.
