3D Print Finishing Technique for Improved Surface Quality
Personally, I've taken a blob of solder on my iron, and scratched the surface of the aluminium with the iron. I think it prevents the aluminium oxides from forming, because it's covered by the molten solder, which means the solder can bond to the aluminium proper. I've used this to solder jumper wires onto aluminium tape.
No problem, it's still a nice project and tutorial! :)
So, with a name like "LostWax", I thought you were specialised in "lost wax" metal casting, and that this was going be a bronze cast using the "lost PLA" method... :P
The device had my curiosity... but the UI has my attention. :D
You absolute madman!You have my vote!
Probably too late by now, but I think this should work:1. attach a temporary 3V power source (another battery, bench power, whatever) in parallel to the original battery2. desolder and remove the original battery3. place and solder the replacement battery4. detach the temporary parallel power source
Awesome, great idea! :D
Oh, I like you version even more (I came here via the "Computer Drawer" Instructable)!If I'd ever make one, I'd probably still go with a drawer style, but more along your design of the unit itself, with an aluminium frame, vented bottom, completely flat layout, and the GPU on an extension cable, etc.I also really like the built-in laptop stand / cable compartment! :D
Oh, if I ever do it, it won't be any time soon though... :PAnd nice, thanks for the video! :)
You're welcome! :)Though I just realised that when making RICE CAKES, you need both heat AND pressure to make the rice puff, and I can only imagine that it's the same with that PaperFoam, seeing how they cook it inside the closed mould...So probably: no pressure, no "foam". :/
I was unpacking some electronics today, and it was using "PaperFoam" trays, which look similar to the result of this Instructable, but they have a bit of cushioning give, as it's filled with pockets of air, like styrofoam.Looking into it further, I found this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQPRCDcDnsc) explaining how PaperFoam is made, and it all sounds rather similar to your method, but using potato starch (corn starch is probably similar enough) as a binder, and then baking the moulded product instead of simply letting it dry. The baking probably causes steam to form, which then creates the air pockets.Maybe this is something to try out as well, though you'd have to somehow extract the cast from the mould before it is dried, to then place it in an oven or something...
Great concept and tutorial! I'd love to try this out if I have a suitable project.And speaking of (CNC) machining a block of this pressed cardboard material: MDF is basically just wood fiber and glue pressed into sheets, so it's not too far a stretch to think that machining this material could work! :)
Thank you! It might be good to list that in your Instructables as well :)
You seem to love Cordura fabric a lot, seeing all your Instructables. :PI definitely don't blame you! :DWhere do you buy this by the yard?
Interesting build!If I may make a suggestion: I would replace the M3 screws covered with electrical tape with nylon standoffs, as they are inherently insulated. :)
Nice tool and good Instructable!And I'm pretty sure I have that same model of Dremel, and I never find any use for it, so I think I'll be building one of these as a next project once I finally have a 3D printer. :D

I like how you made the handle for the tool on the tool itself :D
Very nice! I'd like to make one :D

Neat! Now I know what to do with my old PSU! :D
Ah, that would be the tradeoff then, I suppose.
Oh, nice! So maybe I could make one with a rotary switch with different wire sets connected, to choose between 1.7V, 3.3V, 5V, 7V, 8.7V, 12V, 15.3V, 17V, and 24V?
HAHA, YES!I saw a video about conductive ink earlier, thought it was cool, but too expensive, so I thought: could it work if I ground up some pencil leads and mix it into something like acrylic paint?Turns out that, not only it will, but that it might work better than the expensive stuff! :DThanks for the research! I'll definitely be trying this!
Oh man, how come I hadn't thought of this?This will come in handy during hackathons, where I don't have the option of bringing along an extra monitor (I use a laptop), and also no spare monitor is available on site :)(And yes, I know that I can do the same with my laptop, but I can't really build my laptop into a project... :P)

Nice original take on a classic :)
Haha, nice :P
