Greetings All . . .

Post by 3DKent » Thu Nov 24, 2016 8:38 pm

Hello all, my name is Kent.

My first introduction to the magic world was over 45 years ago. My uncle took me to Eagle Magic Store (Oldest Magic Store in America EST.1899 ) in Minneapolis, MN. My first effect was a packet trick called Twisting Aces. After entertaining my family, my friends and the dog down the street . . . I was hooked.

In the 80's I started creating magic tricks as the workings always intrigued me and was always fascinated in trying to create something by hiding another something which in turn made it an entertaining something.

I started creating effects out of exotic woods (mostly Zebra wood with other exotics used as decoration and contrast) in 2005 and was very fortunate in getting positive reviews and increased business over the next 7 years. Unfortunately family circumstances and some physical limitations had sent me on a different path until recently. I started looking into 3D printing back in Dec 2015 and over the next 10 month learned as much as I could to start designing in 3D. My education in graphic arts and computer aided design helped in understanding many of the programs involved in producing these 3D pieces.

3D Magic Works was started (October 2016) in the hopes of returning to the magic world and continuing to get more of my ideas created . . . in 3D.

Hello Kent and welcome to the best and most friendliest magic forum on the web!

It's great to have another magic creator on the forum. I too have ideas for table top illusions but unfortunately, I do not have the design/construction knowledge to bring my ideas to life. :-(
So until I acquire such skills, I will be spending my extra cash on creations of yours, Simon's, etc. (Simon is another forum member that creates wonderful magic effects).

For those forum members who have not yet checked out the 3D Magic Works web site, do yourself a favor and pay it a visit. You will find some wonderful magic there!

Welcome Kent! I have asked for a few of your effects for Christmas. Maybe the big man in the red suit will make it happen ;)

They all appear to be really great, and I'm looking forward to adding some of your effects into my collection! Glad to have you on this great forum!

Please allow me to once again welcome you to this wonderful place.

I became a customer of yours just after your 3D site began and am looking forward to seeing and buying added products as they appear.
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

I have never seen a webshop with so many detailed pictures of every creation before!

Looking forward receiving my first order, What the hole!
