If you're a parent, a teacher, a cool uncle or aunt, or a diddly doodly neighbor who is well-versed in techniques of 3D printing, spreading the magic of this emerging technology amongst the bright minded young individuals around you should be on the top of your "good deeds" list. A concern that the big thinkers are voicing today is that we're teaching the young generation things they won't need and failing to build on knowledge that will be essential to their lives and professional careers: additive manufacturing, robotics, product development, creative engineering, and so on.

At the core of your creative process there are few main steps that are almost impossible to skip.
1. It all starts with a genius idea and you're so excited... - "this is awesome!".
2. When the excitement buzz subsides and there's real stuff to deal with (goodbye, lighthearted hours of brainstorming!), you shift nervously in your chair and mumble - "oh, this is a bit tricky".

Although the first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, the last Thursday in November was officially declared a day of thanksgiving by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, hoping the new national holiday would help unite the nation during the hard times of the Civil War. Today's Thanksgiving celebration is synonymous with feasting, football and family and continues to be a day for Americans to come together around a table. Hence, freshening up the tradition and setting a modern holiday table can help make for a memorable meal and family time. What better way to jazz up your Thanksgiving table if not by adding a contemporary twist to the beautiful traditional table setting using unique 3D printed tableware items?

So let's go back to the core of the universe: what do women want? In all earnestness, we haven't got a clue. What we know is how to make a woman happy without triggering the big questions. It's best to start with giving her something she didn't know she wanted. It's a double punch and trust us when we say - it's a winner. The tricky part here is figuring out what it is that she doesn't know she wants... To make things a little less complicated, we took a risk to divide women in 6 1/2 personality types that would help bring order to chaos. Just don't adhere to stereotypes - think what she really, genuinely loves.
