Gummy Water Elemental: Video Game Gummies on the Cheap Remix
Our ultimate goal is to make the required \"Grid files \". While most CAD systems use files with arbitrary geometry: smooth surfaces, curves, plates, etc. . . This gives us a lot of features because we can create any shape. However, this is excessive for your regular video game. To improve the processing, the shape is split into a set of polygons called grids. This is also used in rapid prototyping to make machining easier. If your file does not have a grid format yet, you will need to convert it. Embrace new beliefs. Usually using the save as command, all decent CAD packages can be saved to a grid file. If you can\'t do this conversion with your CAD software package, you need to wash your hands for using indecent software. For our purpose. STL or a . The OBJ file format is a fairly standard grid. MeshLab has now generated profiles in SVG files, but the profiles are not necessarily scaled or assembled into a single profile shape. We need to use Inkscape for this. You can choose to open the generated SVG file directly or start Inkscape and import the SVG file into a new document. In both cases, you need to set the document for the paper size. Select document properties in the File menu \". Set the default unit to the unit you like and I prefer inches. If you do not open the SVG file directly, select import in the File menu to import the SVG file. You may notice that the profile file is set in an array. The first profile is broken at times, so we can use the second one in this case. If all profiles are broken, check the slice settings in the previous step and try again. Also, the outline is not scaled. Pressing Ctrl- A to select all, drag the first good outline to the top left corner of the document so that you can measure it using the ruler. For the mouse, I want to zoom it so that the total length is 2. 5 inches long. To get a better measurement, I put the tail on the left edge of the page and hover the cursor over the nose of the mouse. In the lower right corner, window Inkscape displays the cursor position, which is more accurate than the ruler measurement. In this example, the current length is 0. 17 inches. Now, take out your calculator and slide rules again and calculate the scale factor you need. Proportional factor (SF) Is the desired length (DL) Divided by the current length (CL) Multiplied by 100% SF = DL/CL * 100% for Out parts this is: 2. 5/0. 17 * 100% = 1470% select transform in the objects menu to pull up the Transform dialog box. Select the zoom tab and set the width and height values to the zoom factor and press apply \". Select a set of outlines and select ungroup from the Edit menu \". Since we set MeshLab to double the number of slices we need to make, select and remove all the other profiles. Now is the time to merge the remaining contours into a single terrain mapping. Box for each profile as a reference. You will want to enable capture by making sure that the enable capture button is enabled in the right toolbar ( See Figure 12). You can also turn on the snap border box corner, the snap node or the handle, and the snap to the tip node selector. In this way, the corners of the box will align with each other. Keep in mind that the box and outline are separate objects. You need to hold down the Shift key to select both ( This is different from the normal Windows MS operation; There are different functions to select Ctrl. When all profiles are assembled, delete the bounding box. The line thickness of the profile may need to be adjusted. Use Ctrl- A select all objects. In the objects menu, select fill and stroke to pull up the line Properties dialog box. In the stroke style tab, adjust the width value. This will be a balance in which thin lines will be more difficult to see separate lines, but thick lines will overlap. Your image will be flipped during transmission, so if the direction is important (e. g. text) You then need to apply the vertical flip or horizontal flip command using the objects menu. You are now set to switch from virtual to physical. Save your work and print a copy of the profile file. For this step, your transfer design must be printed with a laser printer or photocopier. If you have an inkjet or other printer, you need to copy your pattern on the copier ( If you use a printer/copier, it must use a laser printer). If you choose to do terrain mapping on your bare bottom, this is your own thing. In a pinch, you can use a local copy shop or library. Try to make your transfer mode a manageable size. The reason for this requirement is that copiers and laser printers use heat to fix powder toner on paper. We will fix some toner on the block using the same properties. Put your iron under the heat. Use tape to fix the transfer pattern on the block to the block on the side of the ink. It would be helpful to tape the paper in such a way that you can raise a corner to check if the transfer is done. Use a hot iron and carefully iron the paper onto the block. Be sure to iron the entire surface for a complete transfer. More ironing hurt. Lift a corner carefully to check if the transfer is complete and replace and re-iron if needed. It is also possible to transfer the ink with acetone instead of heat. Unless you like a burning iron, it is important not to use acetone and heat. Although I enjoyed the exciting smoke of acetone, I found iron more convenient and reliable. If you do use acetone, be sure to use pure acetone instead of a diluted nail polish remover. You will notice that your part has the effect of \"stair steps\" on it. It would be great if you liked the effect, but this is usually considered a bad thing. The more layers you use, the smaller the thickness of your layer, the more prominent this is. If your layer is too small, you will go crazy before you reach this stage. In any case, you want to polish your parts and try to remove any rough edges or debris. Ideally you will polish the part down to reduce or remove the stair steps. I usually use the roots of the stair steps as a guide to sanding. Marking the outer surface with marks may help to show the depth you want to polish. When you take out the rotary tool, the grinding and grinding drill bits work very well in this regard. It is also a good idea to seal the surface of the part. To do this, use non Toxic acrylic paint instead of highly toxic radioactive acid paint. No one will see the blank of the painting, so use any convenient color ( No one will know you bought that weird green in the accident). The paint covers several layers. We make molds with corn starch. This is a very cheap multi-function mold manufacturing method. It can be used to mold chewing gum or any other sticky liquid such as candy. In each molding, very little corn starch is used up, and after removing chewing gum, any corn starch in the bowl can be reused indefinitely. It will make you interesting and messy if you add water laterNewton fluid. It can also thicken your soup. Select a bowl or other container that is a little deeper than your part and fill it with corn starch. It may be necessary to put corn starch briefly into the oven for drying. You\'ll want to sift corn starch with a wire mixer or fork so it\'s nice and fluffy. With a knife or other straight edge ( I used the kabob stick) Make the surface of corn starch flat. Try not to compress the corn starch here. Gently press the blank part into the surface of corn starch. You want to press it horizontally with the top surface or a bit deeper. For the sake of mice, I decided to make the eyes of mice with pearls. At this point, any sturdy additional decoration should be carefully placed into the mold. I made a small pocket for my eyes with a toothpick, then pressed them into cornstarch and fixed them in the right place. I left the plain of elements because it was great in itself. There are many recipes for making gum from scratch on the Internet. . . Instructures here and here! This is not- Doubt the best way to make gum material, there is a shortcut. If you buy fudge that you like to taste, it can melt on the stove of the double boiler. Be careful not to overheat because there is a small window between melting and burning. However, I am not satisfied with taking a step back. I won\'t stop until I reach the limit of sloth. For my molding, I melted the bear sugar in the microwave safe bowl in the microwave oven. This includes some delicious as the gum melts in seconds. Be very careful with melted gum! It is very hot and very sticky, releasing more heat when it sets on your arm. You may get a severe burn due to spills, and if you touch the melted gum it will stick to your fingers and burn. I completely exposed myself in this pouring rain. It was a delicious and painful experience. If you melt your gum with a stove, your gum melts and you don\'t have much time to move until they set. Get everything ready before you start the stove. Be careful and thoughtful once you melt, but don\'t delay. Once your gum melts well, quickly transfer the contents to the mold and fill it to the edge. I prefer microwave oven. This allows for different techniques as long as your mold can fit into the microwave oven. First of all, get your gum ready. They will melt more easily if you chop them up a bit. If you\'re using mixed flavors, mix them together in a pile. If in doubt, use a little more than you think you need. Some gum will stick to the plate and will be wasted. Next, pick up your paper tray and cut a hole in the center as shown in the picture. Fold the creases in the plate and sink the center of the plate into a funnel, as shown in the figure. Make sure the size of your board so that it can cross the mold without interfering with the mold cavity. Place your gum in the cone of the funnel, the funnel on top of the plate, and surround the hole around the mold cavity. When your glue melts, they flow down through the center of the cone and enter the mold. In this way, we don\'t have to deal with melted chewing gum. It also does not require any cleaning as the plates are discarded after you have formed. Put the mold with plates and chewing gum into the microwave. Heating 5- 10 seconds each time until the glue melts completely and flows into the cavity. You may see a small amount of boiling, but it doesn\'t matter. Remove the board and cover the mold to prevent dust. Pour it once, don\'t touch it! Pretend gum is a golden finger. Put the molded gum in a place that will not be disturbed. Let it cool for 24 hours at room temperature. Don\'t put it in the fridge or freezer as it will harden your gum. The picture shows the casting process of the mouse glue, but the element casting is the same. After the longest 24 hours of your life, your gum should be completely solidified. Just lift the part from the mold. Trim off any glue that spills the side of the mold if needed or needed. The scissors here are good. You will notice that your gum is covered with corn starch. This is normal. Put a small amount of oil ( Olives, vegetables, Canadian food, etc. . . ) Pack your gum in plastic bags or other containers. Shake the bag or container, which will help to remove the flash, string, or sharp edges. It can also remove corn starch to give the fudge a better surface finish. At this point, all that\'s left to do is invite friends over and enjoy your gum in a good company. Now that you have mastered these basic technologies, you can go in a few directions. Food- Safe high temperature silicone RTV mold material is available from many sources, including possibly your local hobby shop. This material can be used to make halfpermanent mold. This is not so confusing and there are no additional steps for the corn starch mold. It can also be used to cast other items. You can make ice cubes with water elements! With the silicone mold, you have another advantage. The silicone mold is flexible, so it is possible to form the parts with the base material. The blanks of these parts need to be cut using more advanced engraving technology. In terms of chewing gum, you can try to make it from scratch. This provides flexibility for custom colors and preferences. It also allows you to avoid the mental control chemicals that the government has added to the food. These same molding techniques can also be used for casting hard sugar without change. Experiment of combining decoration plug-ins or multiple plug-ins Layered gum pour. Maybe your elements should include a drowning adventurer or a huge purple brain for your mouse! If you are a fan of Jello shoes but don\'t like de- When you are drunk, make a shape for jelly. why not alcoholi-gummies! Soak overnight in vodka or other wine and make intoxicating sweets.
