About Ben Parnas

I have some ideas on how to fix that. They’re not very good ideas, but at least they’re ideas!

I hope that one of the ideas/designs I come up with will someday find a world-changing application. Until then, they’ll live here!


I started this site when I was an Engineering student at RIT, studying electronics and robotics. I spent 5 years there (4 years of classes +1 year on internships) destroying my social life and replacing it with knowledge!  I found the lectures that my major offered to be an incomplete experience, so I spent most of my time outside of classes and coursework applying what I’d learned to various projects. In the end, it was the opposite that occurred – the projects helped me learn the concepts!

I currently work at Formlabs, designing the guts of state-of-the-art 3D printers. I ‘ve been documenting non-sensitive things I’ve touched at my time here, as well as the small things I manage to find time for outside my working hours.

 Most of what I share on here doesn’t have direct real-world applications, but with some tweaking, some of them might. And I’m hoping that some day I’ll be able to re-use them in a more practical manner – making some aspect of our insanely complex world a little more straightforward.
