No matter how simple something seems, in this case a city park, there is always a shocking amount we don’t know. The team spent a few hours looking at references of parks to get a feel for how the floor stones should be arranged, what kinds of materials and structures are appropriate in a park, and how those individual pieces are formed.

Blog — Paul Braddock. I wanted a new project to put the Ultimaker2 through it's paces, and try a few techniques to part the model up for molding and casting resin pieces.

Blog — Paul Braddock

There's a number of other reasons why cutting up models into smaller parts is a good idea, such as, prints often fail for one reason or another, so if you're only printing parts at a time, it's not such a huge setback if one fails. Another reason is that the size of your model is not limited to your build envelope.

One particular challenge in using an FDM type printer for a project like this, is how to handle overhangs, and oddly shaped parts that do not have flat bottoms. While supports allow you to print odd shapes, the surfaces where they attach are typically less than desirable, so I'll be using a few tricks and techniques to optimize, and minimize the negative effects of these requirements.

Articles January 14, 2014 Poaching has been a serious problem in protecting the environment especially in Africa and illegal hunting continues to consume the wildlife population.

Artist Supports Anti-Poaching Campaign Through a Series of Animal Inspired Robot Illustrations

A non-profit organization based in Australia called the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) uses a structured military-like approach, employing tactics and technology such as drones to protect the African wildlife – rhinos and elephants in particular. Inspired by this cause, California-based digital artist Robert Chew created an amazing series called “Big Five” to support the campaign of IAPF. The Big Five project is a series of illustrations re-imagining conservationists with extraordinary technology to fight against poachers: robots inspired by wild animals.

Download Thunderlord From Destiny by Kirby Downey - After making my Duke MK 44 hand cannon I tasked myself with creating this is replica model of the Thunderlord from the recently released Destiny. This model consists of 45 parts all printed with three different materials, PLA, Ninjaflex and carbon fiber. The banana is used for scale. The main body is regular PLA, the pipes, the bullet belt and the end of the butt stock is printed in ninjaflex and the site and the site rail are carbon fiber, the largest part on the moel is the cartridge havles them measure at 160mm x 150mm x100 mm. This is one of the most well known weapons in Destiny due to it's usaged during E3. Thunderlord is an exotic machine gun.

The weapon crackles with visible bolts of electricity, and at higher levels uses electro-static rounds that may be unique to Thunderlord The Thunderlord discharges a salvo of electro-static rounds, shells barred due to volatility.
