I’ve always setup my computer to be woken up from sleep via an app on my phone (Wol Wake on Lan Wan by Brobble, for anyone interested). But yesterday, I thought, I should just make a button that sits on my couch side table … that’s really where this button should be. I use my computer as a media manager (using Plex, another app, to manage and stream to my smart TV). As I was thinking out loud that I wanted such an “Easy” button … I realized that I already had all the parts needed to make this happen. […]
So, I’ve completed the Design of the Pyramid head Cosplay that was requested . Below are the approval drawings created. I’m actually quite happy about how the design turned out. I’m really looking forward to making this thing! Just to give you an idea comparing this with my original design. I actually tried to ship the original design, but quickly learned about the rules of regular shipping (i.e less than 2.7m of Girth + length). Needless to say, the shipping (through LTL) was too much for the purchaser to accept. So I still have this packaged up. The original was a […]
So I’ve been busy working on finishing the Model and coming up with a good set of Approvals/Layouts for my commissioned Pyramid Head Cosplay. It’s been a real hit on my Etsy Page. I’m not quite happy with these yet, but it’s a start. I often berate the drafters at my “other job” for having terrible drawings … but making drawings from scratch is hard. Especially when the information you want to convey/receive is not fully defined yet.
Currently working on a commissioned project. A re-make to my original Pyramid head Cosplay from back a few years ago. Now I can finally make it better!
DropBOB Designs now with 50% more dimensions! I’ve been working on upgrading my cold brew coffee maker for the PRO scene. I wanted a more robust and flexible model and I think this going to be my next prototype. Feel free to grab the model below and rotate and explore! I’ve designed this with the user in mind and I wanted a fully interactive user experience, right out of the gate! No holds barred!
So I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now, but I’ve never had the patience to really devote some time to it … Until now. Rendering of partially designed board (top view) I’ve been learning circuit board design and component selection. I’m hoping to not only simplify the entire wiring design for my cold brewer. I’m trying to expand its capabilities tenfold.
So the wife bought me a cookbook for Christmas: “Bob’s Burgers, Burger Book”. So, I got the hint. Build the damn cookbook holder Bobby! We’ve had this idea for a long time (by we, I mean Jenn), and I just didn’t have time (It was like the 4th or 5th thing on my imaginary to-do list). Here’s the book (after the jump), for anyone who wants to purchase (I’ts actually on special right now on amazon) It has some pretty epic Burger Recipes that I MUST try. Also, makes a great Backdrop for my Cold Brew Maker. The Bob’s Burgers […]
Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been up to over the last little while. I haven’t posted anything, nor have I put my “Star-Lord” Costume up for sale. Well, it’s because something has been bugging me. I’m unsettled about one of my designs … and its preventing me from focusing on other things. As you can see from the above image, I’m working on a PRO version (i.e something you’d see in a coffeeshop or a coffee enthusiast kitchen). All, while improving on the DropBOB control mechanism. You see I’m no longer just happy with having the […]
So as you know, I usually don’t like to just purchase a pre-made Christmas card from the store … I like to make my cards. This means using unconventional materials for the card business. Can you guess which card I made? To wish all my followers a Merry Christmas I put together this quick How-To on how to make your loved ones a card that they won’t be able to put in the spot they usually store Christmas cards in … Start by finding some scrap material that you think will look good together. Find some hinges (even better if […]
Puny shelf … I will destroy you! Remember that old industrial pipe shelf project from a while back … I combines a few 3/4″ pipe fittings and some pine wood planks into a 4 layer shelf (all for about $170 … download the CAD model here). Well, this shelf started getting a little crowded over the last few months. My wife asked how easy it would be to add another layer … Well my wonderful Jelly-Jube as long as you don’t mind me making some noise …
