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 http://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
Looks really great, Jeff. And amazingly light, unless you hold it over your head for a long period of time...
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

Thanks for yr kind words
I debated whether to include the samples or not, but in the end decided it was more interesting to include them (and it was easy to do so). Stained glass would be more of a straight art piece, and in that case leaving them out would make sense. Presumably you could get more colors, too. I'd love to see it if you do make one in glass.
Good question, I will update the instructable. About 50 cubic inches of model material, and 60 of support. So almost 2 kg.
Good suggestion, and I looked for some for exactly this reason, but no luck. If you have a source, please share
Actually 80 hours: 31 + 49! I did consider the bent laser cut approach, but couldn't figure out how to get it to work so everything aligned perfectly and it had the structural integrity to support the samples

Thanks. Not sure what the dowel technique is, but I imagine they take the place of the paper? Was really hustling this weekend so didn't get time to research this as thoroughly as I probably should have

cool. I wonder if you used salt water to boost the density close to that of the golf ball if it would be even more difficult...
can confirm exceptionally delicious
Doubtless I'm an outlier in having far too many drafts on the go, but the mobile version of the website only lists a fraction of them (though recently, a different fraction that includes my latest ones). So it is only useful to me as a means of uploading photos from phone to photo library. Any chance of a quick way of achieving this singular function, other than just dumping the photos into an unrelated instructable?
Great work! Sorry about the slow reply, I've been snowed under. Premium membership on the way.
Thanks! We still get this out each Christmas, even though our dog is better behaved now
Cedar Strip Canoe
beautiful craft, great job
Great stuff. Dipping dots get made inadvertently when following this recipe, but funnily enough no one is keen to eat them!Polystyrene coolers work well as insulated containers for holding LN2. Our lab also uses double-walled stainless steel thermos and bowls, like the ones you can buy at department stores. Fraction of the price of the scientific equivalents. No real equivalent of the dewar, though.
Homemade Dippin' Dots
No, I don't. Am also interested in this - hopefully someone somewhere takes it on.
Variable Slicing for 3D Printing on Autodesk Ember
Very strange. I've uploaded a new base file, in case it got corrupted somehow (IMBase2.stl). Try that. Printing it on the Fortus was entirely routine and I can't see any issues with the STL in any program I've tried. Do you know what platform the 3Dlabs person is using?
I'm curious to know what the issues are, so sure, share them.
OK. I used Fusion360, so that's not going to help. But I think I've found the problem: I didn't combine all the solid bodies I generated into one. That's been done now, and I will shortly upload IMBase3.stl. It clearly didn't matter for the Fortus, but is equally clearly a problem for other systems. Thanks for flagging this, much appreciated.
Thanks. I have no plans to sell these myself, but there are a lot of services out there that will do it (try the 3D hubs link next to each part, for example).
Sure. I think any 3D-printable material will be fine; I used ASA. The mirror I bought was 3 mm. Good luck!
thanks - not eligible as I am currently @Pier 9 (home of instructables), but being here is prize enough!
