A long long time ago... before I ever I was beguiled by 3D printing, I fancied myself something of a photographer...

http://illuminarti.smugmug.com/Travel/Desert-Dreams

and

http://illuminarti.smugmug.com/Nature/Shallows-Shadows

The first was a selection of photos taken on the first of three road trips with my best friend from University in the course of which we drove Route 66 - the first trip started in Arizona, and went west to LA. We did the middle section from Arizona to Oklahoma a couple of years later, and finished up with the Oklahoma to Chicago section last year.

The second batch is photos from a beautiful shallow lake in northwestern Tennessee - a couple of hours drive from my home. Reelfoot Lake was formed in the New Madrid earthquake of 1812, when the ground subsided and the Mississippi river flowed backwards for a day or more to fill it in. The tremors were felt as far away as Boston, and one day the fault will slip again, and most likely cause huge damage - indeed the risk of catastrophic Earthquake damage here in Memphis (where very little has proper seismic protection, and the ground will most likely liquefy into the limestone aquifers below) is far greater than the far more well known San Andreas fault in California.

 

very beautiful photos !

Do you still do photography ?

I'm not sure if this is really creative, however I very much like the output of this recipe:

 

- Take this machine:

 

Goliath

 

- Sit relaxed down in a chair

- Put your video goggles on

- Start the engines :smile:

- Take the recorded video home and do some trimming, add some sound

 

At the end the results are:

 

 

 

 

Two other videos:

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoy the videos.

One of the "smaller" projects I'm working on. A 2440x1220mm (working area) CNC milling machine. We wired up the motors last Saturday, and I'm very happy.

 

Hey, I'm working on building a CNC mill as well. The parts have only been sitting there for a few years so it should be done any day now... :p

You have to, it's a German machine ;)

Very heavy (265 kg) and sturdy. There are simply NO vibrations when that baby is running :)

I've placed a very small coin (0.1 CHF) on it's rim on the cross-table. Does not move at all when the mill is spinning...

Haven't gotten around to actually using it, but I will make my first part with it by the end of the week.

where do you source your raw metal from ?

What type of metal would you use normally ?

I go to local stores - saves shipping costs ;)

I get my metal from metall-laden.ch (just around the corner from my office), and I'll be using a lot of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyoxymethyleneplastic from maagtechnic.ch (they're also not far from my office).

I prefer POM over metal, because it is much easier to work with, but doesn't melt like other plastics. Also, it's very strong, much stronger than ABS or any printed parts...

And because it's milled instead of cast - it gets even stronger (can do any wall thickness...).

They also have PTFE and other interesting materials, but this stuff is pretty expensive.

As for metals, I'm not sure yet. I guess I'll mostly be using standard aluminum alloys, whatever they have in the store :)

Ian :smile:

Finished sometime in the next 20 years probably. Can't really do much in an apartment without driving the neighbours mad hehe. Will probably sell the parts before it's finished though, paying rent and food is slightly more important :p

I have been working on my model railway track. I am building a station. This project has its ups and downs (working on it for 3 years now). One of the obstacles was how to get transparent plastic into the framework. After buying the UM I have been able to solve this problem. I made small U forms that can hold the glass and can be glued in the frame. Here is de first result:

 

KapGlasKlaar

Only the glass frames are printed the rest was still handwork. For the building I will be using more printed parts.

My Ultimaker is so awesome, that I decided I should get a print on my arm.

Do you recognize the part?

That is nothing compared to what I saw in the "3d printing battle wounds" topic on another site ;-).

But nice one nevertheless.

Doesn't look like the nozzle, but does look like a burn of some sorts. What else gets hot on these things?
