Don’t know if folks saw this (didn’t find a thread mention) of the review last week of the iris calculator. Seems very useful.
That is awesome. Thanks! It’s weird, I was thinking of how to make a mechanical iris this morning.
I love ️ this forum:-)
If you speak a little more clearly into your desk lamp, it will be easier for me to find these articles for you in the future…
An iris is on the list for future projects, so bookmarked! Thanks
Another example of Glowhivemind at work…
One of my projects is to create a dry spaghetti portion measurer using an iris somehow.
Really cool, but too bad its a subscription - I would have loved for it to be $20 to buy and not worry about it anymore.
yeah for something i would use so infrequently it really chaps my hide to subscribe. i’m not against subscription software in general, but i do get frustrated at how pervasive it’s started to become.
I guess this is where the $5/month comes in, but knowing me it would turn out to be 3 months by the time I was finished with the project.
Thanks! My brother and I have been talking about the best way to make one!
Did you know that your spaghetti spoon provides a way to portion for you? Check it out Spaghetti Portioning Spoon.
Thank you for the enlightenment:+1:
The Thingiverse link looks interesting and I recognize it is more for cosmetic/accessory
But do you think (with the different filaments you have used), this could be used with lighting control (with a potential heat interaction). I am thinking of LED’s to keep the heat to a minimum.
What material would best (smoothness of motion, clean edges, minimal light bleed)?
