This limits you to other maps that already exist. Those have greater limitations in terms of gradations of color. This way you can get a far larger range of heights for better information display.
How is that different from here?

The 3D print
This is really interesting. Are you doing any post processing, too?

Transform the SF Clipper Card Into a Wearable
I did! I can see the value in it, but I wasn't happy with the results I was getting. Would be open to revisiting it, though.
Given the resolution of the model and my own printer's capabilities, being able to represent the denser population centers is pretty great. Unless you reproduce this map with much higher resolution, skip the blurring, and then print it out HUGE, preferably in color, it's going to be very difficult to be accurate enough to give that sense you're asking about. Probably the best bet is to do it virtually with a 3D model you can move around.
Also, thanks for reminding me. I've now linked the spreadsheet and repo so it's easier to try it out on your own.
Yes. Have heard that people move there to get away from everyone else. Totally get it.
No. JON-A-TRON's Instructable covers something like that, though.

OK, I see. It is parametric. Just a bit hard to make out what's going on here. So it is similar to OpenSCAD.
This is cool and useful. For stuff like this you should look into software that is parametric. Fusion 360 is really good here. Or, if you're more into the programming side, OpenSCAD. Then all you need to to is change a few variables for a new connector. You can even put it on thingiverse so anyone can make their own custom piece in a few seconds.

Are you saying to puncture the top of the lid?
The size of the wheel doesn't matter. It's all about the profile of the rim. You could make a small variety of pieces that can fit different types of rims. Mostly just change the angle.I'd prefer to find some new solution that could fit all rims, but without making this in some flexible material I'm not sure how that would work.
My favorite uses for 3D printers are custom connectors and enclosures. I find printing out figurines to be pretty boring.But my kids love that, so I still do it sometimes :)
It's true. White in front and red in back are the common rules for riding on the street. I made this as a test and don't recommend use with the full colors near vehicles. Can switch to traffic friendly white and red settings with brightness turned down while near cars and go full color when cruising away from cars.I've also seen that strobes are not to be used at night. I see that being ignored all the time. As a driver, that has scared me more than I think this would.
These strips are already coming from China. These cost ~$60 for 4 sets, shipped. If you're looking, be sure to get a strip that's 2m long.I haven't ridden with these in the rain and wouldn't recommend it. The LEDs are waterproof, but the rest isn't. I've had a set of these short when a little rain fell on a Halloween costume with them on the outside.There might be another way. Up to you!I did consider weaving them, but the same problem happens there. The strip doesn't turn to the side and the effect would be a wobbly circle. Keeping the strip facing inwards for a circle doesn't direct the light out at drivers and creates a more uniform look.
Yes! Sometimes a bit too much. Looking down a little while riding can mess up your night vision.

The cost of the lights keep changing. Right now, it's $76 for four strips, but you could definitely make do with one strip per wheel and spend $38 instead.For the batteries, Amazon has some cheap AAs where it'll be $6 or less for the dozen.So you could have a good effect for $44. Of course, I didn't mention the 3D printer. If you can get access to one, the cost of materials is super low, probably a couple dollars in filament.
Nope. I didn't even think much about that part. My quick solution worked out without any issues.
Didn't sound "cringy." Thanks for the comment.

Open a Stuck Jar with a Knife Pt. 2
OK, I went back to the market and got two more jars to try that out. One worked great. The other not so much. So maybe just keep both in mind. Thanks for the tip, here are the results.
I tried that and it worked. Mostly. Very satisfying pop, though.The results

I haven't tried that in a long time and when I did it was with a pretty flimsy knife. So... that must've been a college dorm. As I recall, the knife end got twisted and the jar didn't open. Probably works better with a "real" knife.
This opens the jar faster. Bonus: creates an exciting puzzle made of glass!
I remember using those for opening cans that you wanted to pour out, like condensed milk or pineapple juice. Didn't know they could be used for this. But I don't have one handy either.
There is that possibility. I've never seen it happen myself, but glass does vary.
Interesting. I've done this hundreds of times and never had an issue. I'd say still go for it and do a quick visual inspection.
I tried that once and then I got impatient and used the knife instead.

I've been using this one. If you have the rest of the supplies, you can go by the sound. Also, if you do have a thermometer and the temp isn't getting high enough, replace the plastic top with a piece of wood to cover it and keep more heat in.
