Our little baby girl will be born in a few weeks, so we decided to repaint her room. The original owners thought the this green was a nice color … I actually didn’t mind it … Until I saw the alternative. Now that I think of it, damn that green was ugly …
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 […]
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, as you’ve most likely seen, I’ve managed to create and release a functional and super connected cold drip coffee maker that is more accurate and versatile (and some would say better looking) than any out there on the market … DropBOB(tm) Coffeeshop version Idea But that’s not enough. This is great for personal use … and I do use it weekly, but there is not enough desire for this product yet. So this is where the next step comes in. With this fully functional proof of concept in mind, I need to design a “Coffee-shop” version of the Personal […]
DropBOB(tm) Designs is officially open for business. I have been terrible at blogging lately, but this is only because I’ve been busy at work. Check it out: DropBOB(tm) closed loop drip system – Industrial style in Large If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve opened up my shop in the form of a Blog with a cart to the right. Feel free to browse my wares. Many of the items can be modified and configured as you like them, right from your browser. I will be adding more options shortly. I’ve also expanded myself and have started selling on Etsy. Check […]
So I’ve completed my design. I’ve converted my 3d printable files to STL files and have sent them off to the printer: www.3dhubs.com. fingers crossed that everything comes back nice … you never know with these types of “compact” housings… Plus this is my first functional 3d print … Everything else I’ve done in the past was not as critical. With this initial beta release, I can control my coffee maker from anywhere. I can check the progress of how it is doing. and I can adjust the flavor profile depending on how many drops per minute (DPM) & grind type […]
I’ve been working on my software today. I think I have a good base that I will call this version V0.1 … an alpha release, since I know there are a few crashes and more bugs than I would allow in my beta software. But overall, I’m happy with the result. I have my Arduino code working well with the Blynk platform. From top to bottom & left to right I can: – monitor network connection – visually see the servo position – monitor up-time – see the real time DPM (drops per minute) – […]
So I’ve almost completed the head part of this costume. And since I’ll be attending the Vancouver Halloween Parade, I have to make sure not to put any gore and blood on it as its a “family” oriented event. But don’t worry, The gore will be added after this. Since last week, I’ve added mesh & cast iron pipes & foam. I started trying to screw in the mesh with fasteners and washers … but it was actually way stronger and faster to just hot glue it. The foam was glued in using my favorite glue: PL 8x I haven’t yet […]
So, this year, as every year. The time has come to spend way too much time on a Halloween costume. If any of you know me, I hate to follow the masses and purchase a pre-cooked costume from the evil companies overcharging for costumes because they know the general population is too lazy to work hard for a costume. Here are some old costumes of mine from the years past: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 So what can I possibly do this year? Seriously … Its already Oct 2nd … I’m way behind schedule … I […]
