Long story short, I've been absent the last 6 months or so. New machine at work, new capabilities, new material to work with, trip to Canada for training, etc. etc. BUT! I have something relevant to this conversation!

This is my first attempt at a 2 sided flip cutPHOTO_20181112_163021.thumb.jpg.bbe03794c7616faa844bc0f516eaad22.jpg

It is EPS foam, also known as Expanded Polystyrene. Most commonly found as a packing material to secure objects in boxes.

I also have the capability to spray it with some really nasty stuff that essentially is a 2 part resin that cures in about 30 seconds... I hit this thing with a hammer and not a scratch, dent, or ding.

I'll post some other stuff I've made these last 6-8 months if there's any interest.

Double sided tape on the waste material adhered directly to the bed, Gaffer tape on the sides to hold it down to the bed as well.(A bit overkill) and a scribed line on the bed with a pencil for registration. Being that the media I'm using is foam, it is light, cuts really easily and doesn't need a lot to hold it down. Had a bit of an "oh no" moment when I realized I had my program start zero about an inch too far in for the Y axis and almost had no support material on the top edge.

hese projects often involve a multidisciplinary approach, combining science, technology, and creative design. Students delve into research, utilize computer-aided design tools, and employ hands-on craftsmanship to bring their concepts to life. It's a testament to students' ability to think critically and execute complex ideas. For those seeking guidance or professional assistance, platforms like https://essays.edubirdie.com/buy-essay offer support and resources, ensuring students can excel in both their creative and academic pursuits. Whether it's architectural models, interactive displays, or engineering prototypes, 2-sided 3D projects display the blend of technical prowess and artistic vision.

This is very cool!
