3D printing, paw forms, birdsite (expanded)
Posting to snouts for conversations here, adding info.
Sanded paw forms from yesterday. Printed in PLA, assembled, then given a coat of tinted XTC-3D and a bit of putty to fill in ridging and gaps. A few hours of careful sanding gives it a smooth velvety finish.
Next will be molding to make resin copies for actual production. Those will be dipped in latex to make smooth paws.
It's amazing how much cruft builds up over the years - I'm going through and archiving over 80 Gb of #Blender video tutorials I've collected over the years, and then deleting all the ones horribly out of date (going back to 2006) to free up disk space.
I hear noise outside my window and find a pair of mid-sized black bears up on the deck, casually checking out the snow-filled pots. Tried to take photos but the lights inside kept them from coming out decently (reflections). Y'all will have to be satisfied with paw prints in the snow next to my size 13 prints...
Fifty-eight here (in human years - I cringe at what that is in dog years). Still running around as a werewolf whenever I can, still making neat stuffs and still learning new ways to make 'em.
