    Stop Motion 3D Printed Animation “Bears on Stairs” #3DxAnimation #3DThursday #3DPrinting



    Stop Motion 3D Printed Animation “Bears on Stairs”:

    DBLG’s in-house studio projects are a platform for us to experiment with creative ideas and above all have fun. For this project we wanted to explore and combine 3d animation, 3D printing with stop frame animation.

    Iterative Design Strategies Behind “Brick Wall” Animation by Tigran Kostandyan #3DThursday



    Iterative Design Strategies Behind “Brick Wall” Animation by Tigran Kostandyan. From 3D-dreaming.com:

    The process of iterative design became the main element in the development of this project, the brick wall. During the sequence of design, I came to a point of realization that evaluating more than 500 iterations was essentially impossible. However, the use of animation made it possible for me to find the best 16 walls, which are presented here.

    The objective for the process was to discover happy accidents, or in other words, manifestations of repetitive endeavor. The end goal became a search for a frame in animation that was aesthetically pleasing.

    Architect Brian Peter’s “Building Bytes” 3D printed bricks #3DxArchitecture #3DThursday #3DPrinting


    Building Bytes by Brian Peters on Vimeo

    Architect Brian Peter’s “Building Bytes” 3D printed bricks. From Dezeen:

    Architect Brian Peters has adapted a desktop 3D printer to produce ceramic bricks. “I’ve been working with desktop 3D printers for the past couple of years and wanted to transform the machine to build something on a larger, more architectural scale,” Peters told Dezeen.

    A 6-week residency at the European Ceramic Work Centre in the south of the Netherlands provided him with the opportunity to experiment with printing ceramics from a liquid earthenware recipe normally used in mould-making. The only modification required for the printer was the addition of a custom extrusion head.

    The resulting Building Bytes project predicts that 3D printers will become portable, inexpensive brick factories for large-scale construction. “You could have several of these machines working simultaneously on site using pre-made or locally manufactured material,” he says. “It doesn’t have to be necessarily ceramic – it could be concrete or cement any mixture of building materials.” …

    3D Printing and Chocolate Molds: Tempering and Pouring #3DxKitchen #3DThursday #3DPriting


    SoftSolderTempering

    Ed Nisley has been sharing a series of posts based on his experiments with 3D printing for mold making.
    Chocolate Molds: Tempering and Pouring.

    oft Solder, blog. Here are some observations about chocolate tempering
    :

    Having experimentally determined that tempering molten chocolate is not optional (i.e., chocolate doesn’t behave just like butter), I tried a cheat discussed in the comments following that helpful post. Basically, because all retail chocolate is already tempered, you can get good results by carefully heating it to the proper temperature, then pouring it into the molds… the proper crystals remain in their places, the cooled chocolate has good snap, and you avoid a huge amount of fuffing and fawing….

    Cosmo Wenman’s Life-size 3D Printed Portrait Mashup #3DxArt #3DThursday #3DPrinting



    Cosmo Wenman’s Life-size 3D Printed Portrait Mashup:

    My client asked for a life-sized 3D printed portrait of a colleague. Because the portrait was to be a surprise gift, there was no opportunity to scan the subject. The piece had to be modeled from photos of him culled from the web.

    I proposed a bust, roughly from the shoulders up, with classical allusions, but I was vague about the details beyond that. The final design references the Artemision Bronze, Leighton’s An Athlete Wrestling with a Python and a few other sources.

    …This is the result….” å

    Shared on the Adafruit Forums:

    I want to share my customer feedback. I believe a company that sells its own products is only as good as its customer service/support. It’s the product/customer support after the sale that keeps the customers satisfied and helps grow your future sales. I want to tell Adafruit that I am 100% satisfied with their product design/production, quality control, sales, shipping, and service/support. Adafruit has exceeded my expectations! I have never had any problem with any part of your company. I also want to give recognition Rick in the Adafruit Service Forms for his help in my posts. Thank you Rick. Thank you again Adafruit. =) I will be an Adafruit customer for life! Thank you Adafruit and Rick.

    How To Make Your Cosplay Props Look Like Metal


    prop metal texturing_header

    Making plastic or craft foam look like metal isn’t the easiest trick in the world, but it can be done. This is a great skill to learn to help you with cosplay props and weapons and also armor. DeviantArt user Risachantag came up with it. First, the plastic shuriken were coated with a base coat of chrome spray paint. To make it look more like worn and used metal, she used a dry brush first. After you dip your brush in black paint, do the following:

    “Scrub the brush on newspaper for a bit until there’s only a little bit of paint on the brush. Putting pressure on the brush until it splays out, scratch the brush around so that the paint comes off the brush unevenly to give a rough texture.”

    See the full tutorial at DeviantArt.

    “The Maker Movement”: Wall Art For Your Workbench — Prints Now Available


    smoke_fullsize_reference3_850

    I’m very happy to announce that prints of my photo “The Maker Movement“, above, are now available for purchase. As I wrote originally:

    I’ve wanted to do a photograph which captured what I think of when I think of makers, and which makers themselves would enjoy as a work.

    All of us started the same way — as curious kids (maybe big kids). At first, most of us were following in the path of someone else — along what feels like a straight, well-defined line. But there’s a point where things start to diverge, and we go off and do our own thing. That’s what making is all about, and that’s what I tried to capture here.

    Symbolism aside, I just dig this image. I’d like to sell it as a print, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity. What I’d like to know from you is if you’d be interested in buying such a thing. It’s always hard to judge whether or not a print will sell, especially for the artist, who is often too close to the work to be objective — that’s what galleries and curators are for. But I don’t want this to be a gallery piece. I’d like it to be an affordable work that people can hang in their homes, hackerspaces, shops, or offices and enjoy, so I’m asking you directly.

    Many thanks to everyone for your compliments and support! It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here (yay!) — head on over to the SmugMug page to check it out!

    Easter Egg code for the Eggbot! #eggbot


    Eggbot c back smallx500 copy

    With Easter on its way, we’ll be featuring one fun Eggbot related post each day through Sunday! User ragstian from the Evil Mad Scientist Eggbot forums found the code for an Easter Egg!

    Over in the Eggbot forums, user ragstian has been poking around in the firmware for the the controller board for the Eggbot, the EBB. He found an easter egg: holdover code from an old demo mode which would do standalone plots without a computer attached. The plot above depicts one of the very earliest versions of the Eggbot kit.

    And on the reverse, www.egg-bot.com. Nicely done!

    MetaWear BLE Wearables Platform #WearableWednesday



    Check out MetaWear, a Bluetooth and processor module aimed at app developers who want to get prototypes up and running quickly:

    Instead of uploading your code to the micro-controller board, it comes pre-loaded with its own custom firmware — sort of like an Arduino running Firmata — and you talk to the board from the MetaWear’s Android and iOS SDKs, or using a generic Bluetooth LE library like noble from node.js. In other words, you don’t have to worry about cramming the smarts of your wearables into the limited computing power of the board itself. Instead, you use your smart phone and its sensors — accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope — and location information — Wi-Fi and cell positioning, and GPS — without having to roll out any hardware.
