Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.
I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.
I had an old Shapeoko 2 in my shop that I never really finished assembling. I had the idea to create configurable stoppers so I could perform straightforward cuts, think Etch-a-Sketch with a router.
I was very pleased with the results. The cuts is a bit choppy because I didn’t lock the 2×4 down too well, but for a first cut, not bad. I think I might use this for planing oddly shaped lumber, making rectangular voids in material, and creating simple slots.
Just finished two walnut pieces for a Gabe BC video sculpture. Glued up the walnut blanks, then turned them round, then on to the 4-axis CNC for some milling, then back to the lathe to finish it all off. Video screens fit inside and original content will be running on them soon.
Been experimenting with my vacuum former again. I’ve been making more hearts for robots, but this time I’m using plastic plates as my material source. Not only is it very affordable, but also food safe. I could use these for chocolate molds.
The monument is a sleek, slanted, rectangular object, invoking an gravestone. The glass front displays social media data from an encoded vinyl record playing above. Literally, a physical record.
The object is deceptively simple, a lot of technology is stored inside. And was quite a challenging design/build.
