I 3d printed some vest buttons. They're quite practical, really easy to unbutton because of the tip on one end but they don't slip out because the wider other end locks them in place. The vest I got from a clothes-swapping event that took place last week.
I also bought this cute figure of Yoda from a friend. Check out her blog you must, at HappyYarnJobs.blogspot.se.
What else have I been doing since my last blog entry?
That's about it for this blog. Happy Easter!
Here's a generic blog update on... nothing in particular. Work is going great, we got a present from the 1980s delivered yesterday:
The 3D printing is going rather well although the best 3D print I have seen thus far came from a resin-printer in the Karlstad makerspace of a Warhammer 40K Space Marine:
I will be painting it at some point in the future in my own custom colours.
Speaking of which. Sometimes I really do have too much time on my hands:
A new jacket and scarf go a long way towards making a red and black style work well. Custom red shoelaces because why not.
Another project I've been trying to get time for is to make some jewelry with 3D printed components. I was thinking some anchor bracelets to start out with:
That's it for this blog entry, have a nice day!
Well I'm back in school...
After seven(?!) years of being a lone-wolf I'm once again part of a herd.
Earlier this summer I decided, randomly as I do, to apply for a course in Graphic Design at a university (yrkeshögskola) nearby. I didn't really hear back for quite some time but about week and a half ago I got an SMS that I was now being considered as a possible reserve candidate. I was asked to send in some practical and written material as a test and the very next day I was told I had been accepted.
There went all my plans to move, travel and possibly retire from human society altogether. ..and believe me, those were all genuine plans I had. Regardless, this is a two-year commitment I have made to remain in Sweden, we'll see how it turns out.
- Scratch that. Didn't work out very well.
In other news; bikes. Went to see the classic bike races in Karlskoga with my dad. Got a nasty sunburn because he had assured me that there would be no sun and just large amounts of wind from all directions. That wasn't really the case.
Here are some photo's of the event below:
Got a chance to see the new Star Wars movie. Here's a really short review with little to no spoilers.
Good actors. Great attention to detail. Good music. Bullshit tech-talk (seriously, leave that to Star Trek, no... not the Abrams version).
The overall plot however was completely unoriginal and therefore messes up what would otherwise have been an excellent entry in the star wars movie lineup.
In my opinion Rey's a more convincing jedi-to-be than Luke ever was but seriously... you have seen this movie before.
BB-8 was cute though.
Other than that, what's been happening? Steam sale, got games, am poor again.
Me and my dad hopelessly try to knock each other out in Gang Beasts.
Is the 16th of August before the 15th? ... Anyway, here are more random nature pictures and shots of my bike.
