I am building this for a demo video of the NeverMiss rat trap. I am building the trap in 3D Studio Max, and rendering in MetalRay. It is still in an early stage, but I wanted to track my progress.
These renders show the main mechanics of the trap, the loading cone is used to set the trap.
I am now working on the trap casing which is a very organic shape, so I am brushing up on my nurbs skillz.
$750 for this kit is great! This is the Altair 8800 of 3D printers. This technology will accelerate twice as fast as computers have. 35 years from the Altair 8800 2 MHz (each instruction takes 4 clock cycles) with 256 bytes of RAM to the 8 core Mac Pro Tower with 32GB of RAM / 2.93GHz processors / 64 bit OS. I can’t wait to see what these printers will be capable of in 10 years.
Glide OS looks interesting. I will have to give it a go soon.
I tried the Google Chrome OS but found it a bit slow even with lots of RAM thrown at it. I hope it is a bit more responsive on actual hardware (over the virtual box i had it running on).
While watching the G4 video video for Glide I almost spit out my coffee on this screen below. Juvenile and nerdy always makes me laugh.
