Look ma, no hands!

I woke up this morning to get a peek at the plastic printer doing it's thing. This is still so magical to me....like....I know we're in the future and everything, but this is SOOO COOOLL!! Imagine when everybody has these 3d printers in their homes. Buy a couch on ebay and it prints out, full color and materials within the hour. 3d chain letters, etc etc.

Anyway here it is! (giddy school girl giggles)

240z porn

Just saw this short over at Jalopnik
It's kind of cheesy, yes, but the red 240z in the beginning was just too perfect to resist. Awwww yeaaa.
I need to get mine road worthy over winter break. The morgan aero and gtr are nice too haha.

CHOP CHOP!

Well, about 12 hours later.....

And I'm here. Looks just about the same doesn't it. That's because stitching (getting it all nice and watertight) is like medieval torture. seriously 12 hours. I literally burst out in tears of joy and hugged my teacher when it finally worked. Maybe not the tears but I really did hug him. Anyway, the plane represents the 3d plastic printer's workable area (13.5" square) so my 27" piece is chopped in half to fit (It's pretty toighttt). Anyway, I'm gonna turn the blasted file in tomorrow for printing, hopefully my 12 hours was not in vain.

more MOAR

More screwing around with the canopy. Ribs added, I'm thinking 1/10" or 1/8" thick lightly smoked or two way mirror (EXPENSIVE) Plexiglas vac formed over this should look something like whats on the tube. Still not sure how or "if" I'm gonna cut out the mirror panels (heliostats) from the large Plexi piece. Ayyyayayyy

MOAR

Above deck has been bothering me this whole time. Today I made it my mission to improve and redo it. It's airier, more organic and fits with the hull better me thinks. Hopefully the structure is thick enough (1/4 inch) to at least hold up it's own weight when it is 3d printed. If not, Its back to the old canopy design and a foam mold/vacuum forming plastic.


Oh and we had a kickass 3 hour dodgeball session today at school. wooooo!!!!
Jon Zack me, lauren and a whole mess of people are going to the zoo tomorow too so expect some sketchezzzzz

Syracuse wtf

I was screwing around with CVs, and stumbled upon this. I think it looks neat, but of course it's totally non functional. The new canopy will be something a bit more organic (than the previous ones), but the same idea basically. Also trying to get more greeky with it. Vaccum forming (possibly plexiglass) will be involved. Bye.
