Meet the Maker – Rick Rodgers

borromean hairpins 3D print

This week’s maker is Clinical Professor of Laboratory Medicine in the UCSF School of Medicine, Rick “Channing” Rodgers. We caught up with Rick during one of his 3D printing reservations to take a closer look at some of the mathematical art prints he’s been making.

Q: What did you make?

I made three initial experimental prints:  Borromean hairpins, a trefoil knot designed by a friend and colleague, and a three-way Trammel of Archimedes.
