    I am making this 3D printer together with the son of attorneys I work with. He is going to engineering college next year, and if he gets in a little more extracurricular activities in engineering other than software it can get him into an excellent school as a Sophomore.

    As we get the thing made into recognizable subunits his interest improves. He will be most happy when we have assembled the machine and completed the wiring. That's when we will begin the software work, which is his primary interest.

    First image: This is the frame minus the electronics and fan mount. The two stepper motors at the bottom had to be switched because they are each on the wrong side in this image. Their plastic mounts have arms that are on the inside here, but they must be on the outside to match with the upper arms that are on the outside. (Rods pass through holes on the upper arms and extend down to the lower arms, but only if the lower arms are in the correct place.)

    Image 3: The "X" axis is complete except for the extruder. There is clean up of sloppy printing that must be done with a drill and rasps on that thing the red arrow is pointing at. Bolts can't go through holes that have sloppy plastic hairs and boogers inside that shouldn't be there. We had to call it a day and I will clean up the printed extruder parts this weekend. I previously had to do a lot of reaming and filing on the plastic parts already assembled. That's DIY for you!

    Here is the oil painting I made yesterday and today. Sorry for the sparkles. I had to use flash. It's wet and if I take pictures of artworks out in the courtyard two little girls come running out and want to touch them.

    I got in another session of building with the young future engineer. I did most of the work because he could barely stay awake. I think he stays up most of the night playing games and messing around on the internet. I managed to get the arduino and RAMPS bolted together on the electronics frame and mount the electronics frame on the single plate frame. I also managed to put the extruder together. We are very close to when we do the electronics, which is the most terrifying part for me. I'd really rather not start a fire or fry my arduino by a stupid wiring error. I'm studying up. I didn't pick this carpet, by the way.

    We got this far today. We even would have mounted that extruder and X axis assembly except that the holes for those two loose rods are too small. I have to work on those with my rat tail file.

    I have been trying to design a pair of custom picture frames for laser cutting. In the middle are the various sides of an acrylic box I am designing to contain the power supply for my 3D printer so I can't accidentally shock myself. The problem here is that the laser cutter wants to "print" to 18" x 32" and TurboCAD version 15 that I have won't let me pick a custom paper size. I am trying to figure out how to manage this issue, but I may give up and use my 18" x 30" acrylic sheets to cut six pieces at 9" x 10" and produce limited series laser etched prints.

    OK. So Poser figures really do import to Vue 9 scenes without losing the pose. Now all I have to do is get good at Poser. This gray alien is a standard included figure in the Poser package and it just took a few minutes to get him into this pose once I got past some basic hurdles.

    I am making a 37.5 ' X 48 inch acrylic of that last post. I am not sure if I will include the gray alien. Lots of people take that crap seriously and I don't want to get a reputation for being one of the space lizards.

    The 3D printer is basically assembled, though I may have to have a "do over" on that X axis assembly for a couple of reasons. I'll have to resolve those issues before I move on to the electronics because they relate to extrusion and the motion along the Z axis, both of which are driven by electric motors. I really have to figure out what's the deal with my camera.

    This is a start for IDW #267 using alchemy. It is supposed to be an Evil Generalissimo Helmet.

    I think this is a little more rational than the alchemy drawing I did, though it is the alchemy drawing that pointed me in this direction. I will probably design some cutouts into that oval wing structure, but then the programming statements will be too lengthy to show them all at once in the window. If anyone cares about that stuff I will share it. Otherwise, I will only hurt your eyes with it this one time.

    ... and then smoothed, lit, and textured.

    Thank you. I still need to finish the wiring and download, configure and calibrate firmware and software.

    After some calibration cubes, the first real thing I will print will probably be a reclining cat with goggles and jet packs in honor of my friend's cat. The cat itself will be from a creative commons file available on Thingiverse but I am going to model the goggles and jet packs myself. I don't like the cat with a jet pack that somebody else put on Thingiverse, though overall it is a cool idea. That one is standing up and will probably not print right without supporting structures.

    Here are some assets for my Panels of the Week entry.

    That's supposed to be the Philae lander on comet 67P/Churyumov-Geramisenko (spelling?). The comet is a couple kilometers wide so I think the lander would actually look even smaller than that in real life. The lander is supposed to land pretty soon, though, so maybe we can see what it is like IRL. I think I may make this lady be my ship captain so I am not so stereotypical.
