a whole state... yeah, ambititous
Nice. Love these things. A few questions: what were the spacings (top and bottom gaps) that you ended up optimizing to? Might be a good starting point for those who might like to make one. Any difference between steel vs. aluminum rulers (noise?)? Did you consider using a receptacle timer to auto-limit it to a few minutes?
Really nice! Great bit of wood. Thanks for posting.
odd. If a big TinkerCad file works, it might be something about the stl format 123D Make doesn't like. Perhaps try opening the stl in another program (Meshmixer I used to trim the Terrain2STL files) and resaving?Note: 123D Make is very buggy - Autodesk stopped supporting it soon after launch, and its functionality is supposedly going to appear in Fusion360 in due course. I will update this project when it does.
Thanks. Certainly the fussiest I've ever done! Was worth it though
Hmm, strange. Does this happen with all sizes of map? Grabbing a very large piece of terrain leads to monster STLs that 123D Make might be balking at.
Nice! This is the Seattle area?
I think it was about 4.5 mm. 1.5 mm would be a TON of work!
A 24 V fan or something to step the voltage down
Pretty close to 5' (1500 mm) wide, and a few inches higher than a standard door opening (probably about 7'). You're welcome, and good luck with the build.
Superb! Great finish quality, love the dados and the contrasting beech fronts. Awesome job, thanks for posting the pictures!
Transfer Board for Wheelchair Users
Great stuff, Scott. It was cool to watch you mill this - that Haas was absolutely howling for days!
Tools and Materials for Laser Cutting

very effective, thanks for sharing
DIY String Light Chandelier for $40
Great. If you could provide the file you thus create, that would be awesome - I will add it to the others.
You're welcome, I hope it helps.
The chandelier is over my dining room table now (see attached reflection) and the photo is awaiting framing for my office. thanks again!
Augmented Reality Toolpath Visualization
Fantastic work, Steve! I'll treasure these photos, great memories
Looks great! I like the brass/walnut combo. Thanks for posting. Premium code sent.

The laminated wood looks great! Premium membership sent. Thanks for posting.
Really nice! I like the effect you get with knots. Premium membership sent.
Thanks. Those are in fact all the files I have; I think I must have saved over the Group 2 ones (I was pretty seriously sleep-deprived at the time, I'm frankly surprised only one set is missing). I no longer have access to Illustrator as I have left Pier 9 so can't remake it. However - they're easy to edit - just redo the text for Group 18, referring to any online PT for the correct atomic numbers, symbols and names.
these are prime but they only have one in stock. As far as I can tell from the photos (and my own experience of buying multiple batches), they're all the same.
Thanks for letting me know. Try this link (also fixed in instructable). Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a stable link for these.
Read step 4, and mimic the set up in the 4th photo
I'm sure the site would love it if authors did this, but yes, it's tough to enforce - there is not much motivation for authors to continue to maintain a project. I'm not really sure why I do it, to be honest! I've previously suggested that the site sends authors emails on the anniversary of the publication of an instructable, saying how many views/favorites/comments have happened in the last year. This would perhaps act as a gentle reminder that their project has a life beyond the initial burst of action following publication, as well as perhaps encouragement to check out and address the comments.More proactively, well-maintained instructables could be rewarded with re-featuring. This has in fact happened to some of my more popular projects, but that might be more because they're good g...see more »I'm sure the site would love it if authors did this, but yes, it's tough to enforce - there is not much motivation for authors to continue to maintain a project.

Meat Cooking Basics
Cuts of Meat
Tools + Supplies
Yes; now uploaded. Both files are pretty large. Good luck! If you do make one, please post a picture.
Nice! I like the interesting angles you used. Premium membership on way.
Nice! Imagine a hand-knitted 3D periodic table Christmas sweater! I'd wear that :)
Sorry! Thanks for letting me know. Try this link.
Agreed! He did an amazing job. And thanks
No, it's just a movie taken with my phone that I sped up to 4x (four times) speed using iMovie. Otherwise I doubt people would be patient enough to watch the whole thing.
Contact Larry McNish (see step 1). He is very generous, but I am unwilling to pass on his hard work myself.
Great job! Premium membership on the way.
There is only one video (at the end), and it is not on autoplay.
Thanks. Good luck with the build, if you do take it on.
I'm not going to cut into my ceiling either - they're solid wood. It will be more of a ceiling-mounted box. But yes, the transformer can be wired directly into the home supply like any light fitting.
Good question! It is a beast. I need to make something to hang the fitting from in my dining room, and I will make room in that for the power supply.
Link fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.
Thanks Jeff. Thinking of a party mode for Cielo?
Thanks. Yep, that's the idea! it works too, provided there are not a ton of other shiny things in the room...
Often the reactive metals are put in oil to prevent oxidation. Lithium has such low density it floats but the rest will just sink
actually, you already kind of see it. The glass acts as an extra reflective layer, so you get additional faint widely spaced rings. It isn't nearly as effective as having the mirrors close, because of how far apart the rings are - you lose most of the infinity impression as they're discontinuous
Don't see why not. It looks most dramatic from directly above. You would need a lot more LEDs and I imagine the glass would be $$$$, though.
Thanks. Totally happy to give the plans away - hopefully it means more people will get to have one! Agreed it is not cheap.
The cymbalism is deep and profound, I've heard
Thanks. The great thing about having addressable LEDs is that you can reprogram them to do whatever you want. Your idea sounds cool.
You're welcome! Looks great, I like the contouring in color. Premium membership sent.
Generating Airshells on a Web Browser
Fantastic! Definitely going to print one of these
Great idea - I actually bought a plasma ball and tried it before settling on the infinity mirror. Unfortunately, you can't interact with the ball (it's under glass), it's not very visible except when dark, and the ball blocks much of the plunging effect. Maybe the plasma disc would work if you could solve the uninteractivity
You might enjoy my https://www.instructables.com/id/Warping-Infinity-Mirror/. Motorizing the acrylic mirror to tilt (or even warp) would be awesome
I did, but I thought it would look less like a black hole and maybe a little too disco. Would be cool to see one though
Flatter, thicker and more rigid, and I like the look of the plywood edge in this context. This poster is pretty thick - almost like glossy card than paper. I suspect it will fade faster from light on the face than acid leaching from the back. The contact adhesive will make for a pretty good barrier.
Thanks. I've not yet - it is standing on an easel. I'll probably just put a couple of screws in and put some wire between them
Beautiful. Great wood selection and clever save on the lid. Looking forward to the next project - it's gong to be good
Lucky enough to have seen this in person. It's spectacular!
Nice. You say ash is not durable enough but other woods are too heavy; I imagine pine is way too soft - what do you recommend as a happy medium?
At the Exploratorium next Pier over they have one like that with marbles, to mimic orbits (fast decaying ones, I guess). The sound effect is just a marble going clunk! though
now you're talking
