I picked up the transparent (or natural) filament today - so I could print off the light covers (ears).
That means all parts from the model are now printed.
Printing progress. Lots more parts printed. I have run out of blue so some are red. I’ve also run out of red - so the skirts will be in black. All that leaves now is the ears - they need to be in clear - and I need to get some clear filament for those (they will not be painted and need to have LEDs inside).
From what I can see - it looks like the model I’ll be building is a Time War Dalek - 2005Full Post . . .
Did some digging - and have found several voice modulators for arduino out there that can make you sound like you’re a dalek. Some of them also do the lights control. Some mention the wave arduino shield from adafruit as a useful addition.
Didn’t find exactly what I want (I’m more interested in one that can take playback rather than a microphone) but I did find that lots of things link to Project Dalek - looks like a really useful resource.
The Dalek build has been started.
The base front and back parts have been printed.
I recently picked up a set of PolarPro’s Cinema ND and ND+Polarizer filters for DJI Mavic drone. They come in a nice box supported in foam but are a bit fiddly to get in and out.
Did some looking online and found a nice tool to allow you to keep your fingers off the filter glass.
I was watching a video on 3D Printing Nerd’s youtube channel where he was printing a Pac-Man ghost (video at the end of this post).
It made me think that it could be fun to do something similar.
So - the kids are taken by the current fidget spinner craze.
I have to say that personally - they seem like simple gyroscopes - but OK - they think they’re interesting.
So - what can we do with that to make it more interesting (and perhaps just a...Full Post . . .
Testing some of the mapping and 3d/photogrammetry apps out there with the mavic yesterday.
Had some issues with the mavic’s camera focus (was out of focus even when pre-set) so I’ll need to try again.
But - two maps with drone deploy and one 3d model...Full Post . . .
