LED’s not sky – light

Netto had 5m LED-light strips, Helle got the god idea, now we have this nifty light:

Saturday eggbotting

Eggbotting “Open Space Aarhus”

I measured the egg using the probe.

Create the path in in inkscape using gcodetools.

In a postprocess i first split the path in to short segments, then I linearly interpolate based on the measured data to follow the surface.

In this eggsperiment I used G64 to allow the machine some tolerance in following the path to gain a better feedrate. The result were at significantly different sound from the steppers, it sounds more ‘sick’. But it worked

See the video @ vimeo :

The next step is to try to make TSP art on the eggs, Nikolai Tesla made from a single line , Evil Mad scientists have nice guide:

Eggbot first print

A penholder was made, its basis is the insides from a CD-ROM drive the pen is molded into place using Shapelock.

An Egg was mounted and some quick test pattern were made in Inkscape.

We step back and observe the magic.

Unfortunately i dropped the first real image, the first test run were spirals and a hardboiled egg.

There are still issues to work out, but all in all we are quite satisfied with the first test.
