6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person

6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person

–If you’re bored. Best thing I read all year. very inspiring as an artists…. 

Update & new device.

This new piece is underway.

Need to do a print at FAR for this dome piece.

All mold materials have arrived.

And I could be working harder, but feeling confident.

Outlets

after completing the plug, I can now make an outlet thats a custom fit.

Plugs will get pushed deep inside. I’m thinking a 00 Shore Hardness silicone.

Print will be  in 3 pieces creating a float mold.

I’ll think more on the designs. these are just renditions from my sketches.

Prototypes and variations.

It was a productive day! I figured out how to use the laser with the broken functions…

I want a male/female arm piece.. I don’t know enough about product design to pump out variations. I’m satisfied with the one that looks like the maxi pad. (I’m getting very good at Illustrator having no prior experience)

>>>Thoughts?

  • I would like 3 arm variations… are these 2 close finished enough to proceed?
  • With each arm piece, I want a different orifice.
  • I designed it in a way that it “holds back” as you hold it. Its awkward in a good way.

Someone is concerned with the amount of ABS that I’m using… Its only $15 a pound… and all my stuff is hollow, but I will weigh it and pay accordingly… 😉

>>>Plugs

  • final presentation will be in a box.
  • I’m going to cut foam to hold the pieces so they fit inside
  • Over the top of the foam, I”m going to have an acrylic layer [colored or mirrored (similar to the wood)]

Fab Lab…

Ideally and time permitting, my thesis will be all about connectons and options. Right now, my only option is to work..Trying to get ALOT done over  break… I have a time card app on my phone for accountablity..  I would be more productive if the Laser was working!! maybe get fixed monday? .. . these are quick renderings of my plugs.

Green will be silicone–ordering florescent pigments. (confused becuase these pigments work for silicone and urethane?)

Ideally, I can do all he casting at once.  Start soon–I need to bug Master Craftsman about a vacume pump…
