Oh I had to stick that pic in your post. Excellent!!!
Ok How about this fusion reactor?
It works, but nobody has been able to figure out how to get anything useful from it!
That's sheet one of sixteen. I wonder what the rest look like. Philo Farnsworth was the first human being to see his image of himself on a modified oscilloscope. He invented the first T.V. at around 26 years old. He secured a loan in the middle of the depression from a Banker for $25000 dollars, which was around a million today. He got the idea of a scanning electron beam while riding his bicycle by a farmers just planted field, and see all the lines, he though if he could scan lines with an electron beam, he could capture and produce an image, which means he must have produced the camera too. He won the court battle against Westinghouse, who was working unbeknownst to him on the same thing. Westinghouse conceded, and they joined forces . He truly is a great American Hero. My facts my be sketchy, but it's worth reading up on.
OK .. you asked for it.
Just think those old crts had a LOT of potential!
Oh I'm so glad I popped by to check on progress of this project. Well done Jan you've done yourself proud. I can't wait to see a paper build of it start now. I'm hoping that it will be possible to scale it down to a gaming scale - ie somewhere around 1:57 - I'm sure that will make building even more of a challenge than normal but I'm up for giving it a go, even if it means making some of the moving parts static. I'd also be interested in seeing it 3d printable in that scale.
Fantastic work so far, a work of art.
I would like to see this at the scale he is building it. It should be quite a sight!!
at a metre long or so, I don't disagree. It will be hugely impressive.
Amazing, just amazing!
Jan.....You're a master!
I wanted to ask you something, do you think you can reduce the scale and print with a 3D printer?
Split the model into blocks and then assemble them, I think this will not lose the details and all the mechanisms would work.
Still compliments !!
Wait till he finishes the model. That's a lot to ask you know. A real lot. Think about it, O.K.? Personally, I would not expect a response from such a request. Just being real. It is an awesome piece though. I would not expect a designer to give up his CAD model of his work, which is what you are asking for essentially. You could easily scale the model down yourself with Photoshop, then do the measurements after you build it, and make your 3D printed model.
3d printer is not bad idea, I want to buy one, but this model i primary paper designed, there is lots of issues for the printer.....maybe after the finished model I´ll make 3d printer friendly model
Yesterday was a bad day.
My computer crashed...after five years of work........ the HDD failed.
But it is not all. My relatively new (1.5 years) notebook did not switch on.
There is powersource gone or even worse...the notebook itself.
Goddamn.....i have not usefull tool to work on...
buing the harddrive, install the system and necessary tools...oh man
don´t worry, the project is backed up on another disc and two flashdrives.
this thing will slow me down
Jan / Alien 99,
Ouch!! Hard drive crashes are the worst! I hope you are able to resurrect your project. I've loved seeing your progress on this project until this recent snafu. Keep the faith and please don't give up on it!
