Circadian Contraptions Day 186
A couple of days back I already used one of the little gel balls for a contraption, today’s another one. I just love the way that the light plays with them, and its fun to try and bring out those features.

Tonight I’ve gone to one of my old hangouts, #HuppelThePub in The Hague. Because we were a bit on the early side it was still pretty quiet when i took this picture, but it does make for a very pretty picture i think.

Today’s another day of printing and fine-tuning. I’ve rearranged the nozzle a bit so there’s more space between the heat-block and the radiator block, cleaned out the installation, got the new print-bed sticker and auto-leveler installed and found a way to still properly tighten the tiny screw in the heat-block that was giving me trouble … Continue reading

In last months curiosity box I received gellballs. Tiny little balls of about 1 to 2 mm, that you drop in water and they grow till 300 times their size (which is slightly larger than a marble) if you take all three dimensions into account.

Mixed reality is always fun. So in the spirit of Roger Rabbit, I’ve decided to let Courage loose on Ypenburg. I’m betting he’s waiting on Muriel to come pick him up.

I managed to get a nice one set up though, and used photoshop to make it pop out … Continue reading

I’m still wanting to get a proper build of that Torii that I’ve tried twice before. But by now I’ve realized its too fragile to print in one go. So I’ve cut it up, and it is printing. There’s not a complete contraption to show yet, but this should give an indication of the direction … Continue reading

Halfway! 6 months down, and 6 to go. One thing I love about photoshop is to take a picture that I like, and to just go and explore the options. Try out filters, play with the balance, just to see what looks good, what looks interesting and what looks like crap. Today’s contraption is the … Continue reading

A bit late, but i got a bit of a stomach bug or something last night and went to bed before i could finish it. There are a couple of problems with this print. I’m going to have to print it in multiple parts instead of all at once because of the support material getting … Continue reading
