No, not that kind of e-famous.
I’ve been working on a little project lately. It’s nowhere near complete but after performing the first mechanical test, I figured that I put it up on Thingiverse anyway as a WIP.
The project in a nutshell is to produce an animatronic tentacle that responds to one’s mental state.
The parts were printed with PLA on my Ultimaker. I’m not sure how I should tackle the ball joint as it’s brittle when printed with PLA, and I think the print was too solid (and hence too heavy).
So, after the first test, up went thing #10337 onto Thingiverse, along with the following video:
I wasn’t entirely sure what response I’d get (or any at all), but the denizens of Thingiverse are an encouraging lot, offering compliments and feedback.
Right now I’m redesigning the segments to reduce weight, but still keep the same look. I have few ideas kicking about in my head that I’ll need to investigate. And all the positive feedback has spurred me to keep working on this.
