@leom0Day 5 of #10-days-in-public: Not much today, just did a bit of CAD and laid out some revised parts so they'll be ready for laser cutting. This will eventually be a camera/display mount!
@adammakesthings0Yet another missed scrapbook day! (i am very bad at this)
Spent 4 solid hours teaching fellow students to use the laser cutter/dealing with problems, then helped out with a middle school robotics program. In other news working on a new project 👀 (i cannot stop starting new projects and never finishing them please help :tw_sob:)
@sampoder0Dev & I went to a laser cutting class at the Generator! We met a guy who was learning to laser cut coconuts
@leom0When life gives you wood, you make a model of a Daguerreotype camera using a laser cutter for history class.
@Shrey-Mehra0sorting out the material for making laser engraving machine
@cytronicoder0Day 2/3 of #hack-club-at-fossasia-23!! I felt the need to post about this as a ship, as we committed a couple of shenanigans along the way~ :sphere:
1. Yes, we did a lil thing to #place - some of us here got bored and went to a Starbucks, where we sat and masterfully constructed the one and only John Cena. Then, we returned to the place and updated the board with a photo from #lion-city-hacks-bts!! DON'T WORRY WE ARE NOT HERE TO TROLL (although the john cena one was good, it was just a test - sorry @belle :p)
2. I worked with LionsForge to laser-cut a @dinobox acrylic piece! Going to buy an LED base to put this on :partyparrot:
3. Many stickers from everywhere - this is now the premier event where I got the most swag from
4. We set up a challenge for FOSSASIA participants to draw their versions of @orpheus!! The results were.... pretty diverse, and we will be sending them sometime tomorrow I think
Here are some photos from today - a video update can be found in our planning channel linked above!
See ya :pirateparrot:
@efe-U04FS65LKR80CO2 Laser Cutter, Day II. It almost works! I was experimenting with the settings to find the correct ones, but the smoke from the MDF became a bit problematic. I'll investigate ways to prevent this problem tomorrow.
@sampoder0whw! :winter-hardware-wonderland: in 30 deg c :wahoo-fish:
anyways, today I worked on making a schematic for the laser cut box @arsh7chetana is making tomorrow :D
in the meantime, @arsh7chetana made a silicone mold of a record!
(poor @NeilGhosh has mock exams…)
@lachlanjc0Presenting my latest project, Decarbonize: The Game! It’s an interactive game with laser-cut pieces & iPad/Next.js software. You’re in control of the electric grid for 50 years: build out solar, wind, natural gas, & goal to explore the effects on carbon emissions & energy prices. Thanks @matthew for filming.@KanishqKancharla-U041MC28L3B0learning how to use a laser cutter to make a new coaster. #10-days-in-public !!
@matthew0Laser cutting session today went much better. I also made one out of black acrylic, which I will give to the person who solves my riddles three
@matthew0Laser cut my first things today. I slightly messed up the centering and ran out of time to make more, but I’m very excited!!!!!
@ella0Designed these circular things with Gram (gramlanguage.com) and laser cut them.
One might call them coasters.
@ced0im thinkin @lmcelroy should pursue a career in hand modeling, what do yall think?
thanks @msw for laser cutting the case design!
what am i looking at?
this is the latest prototype of the sprig, a handheld console for running games made with #sprig
(sprig is a lil tool for making games out of tiles)
also the editor is named sprig. we mightve named too many things sprig
@msw1Haven't made physic stuff for a while so I'm at the maker space laser cutting today!
@caleb0Visited a makerspace with the Magnificent @msw and the Illustrious @ella, the latter of whom helped me laser-cut something for my desk (or my wall).
@ella0Learned how to use the laser cutter yesterday.
@zrl0Behold my cubes! I learned how to design and laser cut a cube using OnShape today! Included figuring out tolerances, and using lots of parametric design tools in OnShape to get the pieces fitting together correctly.
@msw1Got my laser cutting certification at the local maker space
@RachitAgarwal-U02SVBTUR1P0Made an automated Stone Paper Scissor Machine using 3D printer, Laser cutter and other elements(Arduino, Servos, etc.)
@jasonaa0someone stole a piece of this all white puzzle that we’ve been working on in the library for literal MONTHS, so me and some friends traced the empty spot on to a piece of paper, scanned it in, traced it into a vector and cut a new one with the laser cutter :ultrafastparrot:
i can’t describe how satisfying it was putting that last piece in 😌
@zrl0Making a stamp using a laser cutter!@jasonaa0today i spent my time in cs wrestling with our laser cutter :eggsdee: the computer we use to run it got reimaged so i have to calibrate and configure it all over again. as you can tell im having a… fun time but i did make some progress 🔥@clairebookworm0Laser cut a coffee :)) if only I magically generate it
