extremely nice work, i like very much the high attention to detail!
this mod will look truly awesome when finished.
i like the button effect.
wow it's looking really good now!
I just looove your designs since coldfusion!
You're one of my idols!
Keep up the good work
Still remember me? Was for like 10 minutes ago talking whit a friend about your CNC cuttingdevice (don´t know the right english word).
I like this project, what colour will it be in the creation?
You are cranking out parts at a ruthless pace! If it's not too much, I would like to see a full pic of your CNC machine. If you posted it earlier, someone throw me a link!
I love the work you're doing on this project and the overall styling.
It's similar to my very own tastes in case design, so it gets a major thumbs-up from me.
Keep up the great work, I'll be watching this one eagerly.
Hi nice job so far looks great!!!
I have some questions. What is that tool u are using? did u buy it? if so where can i get one?
OR did u make it? can u make a project log on how to make it?
Sure, here are some pics of the machine
And guess what it's connected to
Z-axis and spindle:
And best of all, I got this baby for the price of 1000 SEK (about 150 us$) So sorry Ace, I can't really help you to build/get one.
Thank for all your comments!
cool a mill
i want one
Wow! Only 1000 SEK!?! Soooo worth it!! 8D (hehe, I really am this amazed atm, for real)
no problem i was just looking for a tool like that
do they have a website? or did u buy it off someone? what is the tool actually called?
@aCe: Found some links for you, in case you haven't found what you're looking for yet. Btw, they are called CNC Routers.
- A bunch of hobby cnc links (you'll probably find most of what you need among these links) -> http://www.cuttingedgecnc.com/links.htm
- Build your own cnc router -> http://buildyourcnc.com/default.aspx
- CNC Zone forum (they have more (sub) forums than you can shake a stick at, and among these a 'DIY-CNC Router Table Machines' forum) -> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/index.php
All the parts used to manufacture it can be bought from www.solectro.se (I don't know any american shops though). No, I actually bought it from a guy who thought it was broken, but obviously it was'nt
I'd imagine the controller is crazy expensive though (If you're not building your own of course)
Do you by any chance take orders and stuff? If so, throw me a pm..
I was a bit bored today, so i figured it'd be a good idea to mess aound a bit with the lighting
Soldered a couple of white 8K LEDs (sorry about the messy pic):
These are supposed to go into the four holes on the sides, thereby hopefully illuminating the acrylic a bit
And of course, PVC tubing is a must-have I think this is 6mm.
Made a pair of acrylic pieces to fit the LEDs in
Bolting it on
I'd say that looks pretty damn good
After this I just could'nt help myself. I just had to see them in action.
Too bad my camera is making them look blue As you can see this is'nt much of an update really, but there's more to come
wow, now that looks amazing!
Thanks this really helps
Looking great as always!! The top edge of the transparent acrylic looks a bit dimmer than the other edges, is this only due to the angle?
Does your camera have custom white balance? This works really well with single color light source(s).
((On my camera, it works like this; You take a pic of a white surface (a sheet of paper for example) that's in the same light as the object you will photograph. Then you tell the camera to use that pic as a reference for setting the white balance.))
Keep up the excellent work!!
@aCe: ur wlcm, glad I could help! ^_^
