Welcome to MorganTech,
Sometime in the mid 1980’s, computers started becoming more powerful and graphic packages were being developed. This was about the time we started using computer graphics in my wood shop. Wood Forms was a custom furniture shop where I constructed projects for interior designers and architects. My 3D renderings became very popular with our clients, once approved they were converted into CAD drawings that we used for building our projects.
I closed down Wood Forms in late 1995 and started building computer workstations. With my early knowledge of CAD, I started consulting companies on how to use computers in their graphic departments. During that time I became a vendor and consulted with companies such as Hewlett Packard, Encad and AutoDesk. Over the next couple years I did extensive beta testing with software developers. Using AutoCad, I created drawings and rendered images that were were embedded into the firmware of large format plotters, these were used as sample plots for demonstrations. I also worked with the Yost Group developing 3DModeling software, the program was originally run in DOS called 3DStudio, later to become 3DSMax now owned by AutoDesk.
In 1999 I started working as a graphics consultant for a large engineering company. We combined working drawings with aerial images from Google Earth, photo composites done in 3D were used for master planned projects such as Sea World, San Elijo Hills and other various housing projects around San Diego County. Shortly after I began working with the engineers, we started using radio controlled aircraft for project surveillance. A medium format film camera was installed that had a GPS overlay on the screen. Aerial images were taken with the GPS Lat/Long and altitude data displayed on the image.
Starting in 2005 I created a company called DWFoamies. With a team of friends we designed flat foam aerobatic airplanes. DWFoamies is still in production, cutting over 10,000 kits. Sales starting slowing down in 2015 which gave me time to venture into other areas. A friend gave me a 3DPrinter to work with, after taking it apart a few times trying to get good prints, I decided to make my own design. This is when 3DimensionalTools was born, producing a line of tools that we now call Komodo.
As of January 2018 we are now listing all of our shops on one site, allowing for easy navigation and shopping. If you have read about the Depron shortage, it is true. Selit, the manufacturer of Depron brand foam, has communicated their intentions to quit supplying the hobby industry with consistent, high quality foam. My supplier has limited cases of Depron left, it’s hard to tell how long it will last but our days are numbered.
If you have any feedback or questions about this site, you can contact me here.
