One more glowing without the paint since translucent filament is cool. 😎
A few things I find about working with translucent filament. 1. Filler putties are super undesirable, they leave shadows under your paint if you’re working with light - so use a 3D printing pen to fill. 2. If the filament type you use doesn’t come naturally transparent, expect your filament to preform differently since they are different blends. For example this red ABS is much harder to dissolve with acetone than would be normally so I didn’t use acetone to weld it together. 3. It’s much harder to visually inspect if the print is completely smooth, so expect to spend a longer time in the smoothing process. Same thing with the putties, if you use paint to fill your layer lines you may end up with weird shadows in your finished product, so I prefer to make the print itself smooth.
What do you do when you don’t have access to a makerspace? You work on your project down the pub of course!
Massive thank you to dream team @miltonio94@helenleigh_makes & Drew Fustini for all your help! Also gotta give a special mention to @iamcicilara for making us feel so welcome, not every pub would’ve put up with our shenanigans!
Look out bowls, you’ve got some major updates coming your way!! #soundart#making#makersgonnamake#arduino#neopixel
Two #NeoPixel tests for a project at work: the first is a "gauge" - when it is low, the LED ring on the button pulses until it is pressed, then gauge refills. The second is a simple color pulse chase that changes color/direction on the flip of a switch. Satisfied so far with the @adafruit Metro I'm using as the controller!
First ever fit test of Starlight 2.0! It’s very comfortable but I still need to work on making a shorter power cable. I actually really like how the rainbow theater chase pattern on the arms and legs looks, even though I was dissatisfied with it yesterday. Features leggings from @dustri.al 🖤 #neopixel#adafruit#arduino#ledcostume
What's better than chocolate?! Chocolate with LEDs. My father's birthday is today, and he just had major spine surgery yesterday. Hospitals don't like things on fire, so no birthday candles. Happy Birthday Doodad! #madeinvancouver#neopixel#imakestuff
+++ Glowing Hooves +++
We are experimenting with LED Stuff and thought to light up my hooves would be a cool idea! So here we have the glowing hooves, which lights up with every step. The perfect eyecatcher for my new faun cosplay I already planned! I still have to cover the shoes with a leggings and some fur, buuut they looked so cool that I just have to show them to you NOW! How do you like them so far? Any other ideas what else we can do with the pressure-sensitive conductive sheet? #leds#adafruit#neopixel#faun#hooves#fauncosplay#ponyboots#hoof#led#glowing#powerbox#newlights#ledbook#lightningcosplay
