Washington, DC
A Conversation With xyHt Magazine Publisher Neil Sandler

While we were in Washington, DC, we had a chance to sit down with Neil Sandler, owner of Flatdog Media Group, which publishes xyHt magazine.

It could be that Neil has to explain the seemingly obscure name of his publication to everyone he meets, or I just looked brain-dead from lack of sleep and he wanted to be kind and spare me the additional “data crunching” that the magazine’s title might require. 

“You know, left-right (x), fore-aft (y), up-down (H), and time (t),” he said. xyHt. He smiled.

“Got it,” I said. I’m grateful he explained it, too. It was good to meet someone who also cared about laser scanning, reality computing, photogrammetry, and such things. 

In addition to explaining xyHT, he asked me a lot of questions about the 3DRV roadtrip. You can read that Q&A here. But in a nutshell, I shared how people are quite curious and excited to hear about 3D design and that there are free tools that allow them to create and invent.

He wanted to take a few pictures, but I told him that the best I could do was “x.”
