A request from my facebook friends. See I do take requests and am happy to build and design anything. (svg here)




Frabjous

Image
I decided to make a copy of George Harts Frabjous. This version with tabs came from thingiverse and it was only modified to scale it down for 3mm laser ply. It works but I think a larger size would be easier to assemble.

Iron Man Mk2

Image
Iron man arc reactors have sold pretty well for me over the past few years, I even made enough pocket money to pay for the laser cutter that started this crazy blog so it seems only right that I revisit the little arc reactor with the new tools available to me. I found some awesome, laser cuttable metallic plastic from Rowmark. They were kind enough to send me some samples to try and I managed to make this. I'm calling it the Mk2 to provide clear separation from the previous version (shown right at the end of the post). A significant improvement I'm sure you'll agree. These photos were all taken in a well lit room.
Arc reactors have their own legacy page available here

Rubbing sheet

Image
Looks like this one nearly escaped the write up. Tree asked if it was possible to make a rubbing plate, 30 minutes later I guess the answer is yes. I'm now interested to see what Tree wants to use this technique for.

A bit more of a folding technique this one to produce a honeycomb pattern (svg here)
