The End of an Era

I went by the Richards Street site where I had the shop for the past twenty years.

It’s about half demolished: looks a little sad and makes me feel a bit nostalgic.

I guess there ain’t no stoppin’ progress!

Curriculum Vitae

Here I am in formal attire.  My name is Marcus Carius and I am the owner, operator, chief cook and bottle washer for Implant Mechanix Inc.  I was trained as a tool and die maker starting in 1976 building injection molds for the plastics industry.  In 1980 I returned to university (UBC) and completed a degree in Honours Physiology and a degee in Dentistry with some dabbling in Fine Arts and Medicine to round it all out.  I practiced dentistry until 1998 when I retired to pursue my first love of making things for a living, and I’ve never looked back.  Implant Mechanix was originally set up to support my clinical dental practice which was deeply involved with the management of difficult implant cases, hence the company name.  The company scope has broadened greatly since then, and now offers design, development, and fabrication services to a wide range of customers.

Product testing

Here is another shot of me engaged in serious product testing.  Actually the testing IS serious; my customer and I needed to determine the best geometry to keep a plastic noseclip in place on smaller noses, and this was a good, if undignified way to get the information we needed.
