...and so a little Forg is born. Or forged, if you will. Forged out of bio-composite material in the 3D printing dungeons of northern-ish Scandinavia.
Perhaps not the most successful 3D print I have ever done but he's pretty cute nonetheless.
Here is also a picture of the bus-ride home:
I visited another Makerspace yesterday, might even work there at some point in the future. They mainly work with bio-composite 3D printing and some PLA-based materials.
Here are some examples of things printed with these materials:
They are bringing in even more 3D printers and the goal appears to be being able to print products at any size and custom built specifically for that consumer.
It's an interesting project and place to be for sure. I'm currently learning their machines and way of operating but maybe I'll joi... OH MY GOD, A MOTHERFLIPPIN' ROBOT
...ok while this isn't part of the 3D printing-project, she is just standing there in a half-abandoned production facility in the adjacent locales. This thing is freaking massive and I think is used to stack and move around planks.... maybe. Either way, she looks lonely.
That's about it for this blog. We'll see how this turns out. That robot though...
Here's a quick update with some additions to the living room.
The lamp is still being a pain in the neck because I can't ever seem to decide on when it's finished or how to finish it.
These are my latest experiments using magnets:
It makes it a lot easier to experiment with different covers and the ring acts as a perfect form to quickly shape new covers from other materials. Not finished yet though.
I also finally finished the shelf. It currently has an assortment of various decorations on it ranging from souvenirs from Greece to The Three Musketeers, Swedish translation from 1919.
Finally the table stands but is still lacking a piece of glass:
That's about it. Gotta find a way to make that piece of glass...
Yes, this project is still going. Just made this little lamp. It's attached to the wall with a magnet so you can use it as a torch when reading or just remove it altogether.
Here is how the apartment looks at the moment:
Doing some experiments with lamp v 2.0. Going for either cloth or coloured paper to give the apartment some red-ish mood-lighting:
I was also recently at a restaurant and they had these awesome decorations in the window:
That's not actually fire, just a smoke machine with a light underneath (I'm guessing) but the effect is surprisingly convincing. I would love one of those for my apartment. Depending on where I could get it and how much it would cost.
That's about it for this update. Expecting mostly everything to be assembled in the next update.
