  1. Saw Bohemian Rhapsody today. Enjoyed it. Wife did too, and I was worried about that. She has trouble with British accents sometimes.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Bleh! Work nightmares! Dreamt that I'd put a Bones figure wish list and purchase instructions inside of a drawing note as a quick check if anybody was actually reading them, but then forgot I'd done that before releasing and sending off the drawing per a DCMA request! Embarrassing! And so my mind fretted about it for half the night. DCMA? Oh, sorry! Defense Contract Monitoring Agency. They make sure contractors to the government are following the provisions as stated, and do inspections and such. I've never had any issue, so not sure why brain am stooppeed dream now. Maybe it just didn't like me sleeping.

    Very decent brush control. Tell her "good job"!

    Okay, what are the dates for the Con 2019?

    And more specifically, the Thursday before Labor Day until Sunday afternoon. There’s usually a meet and greet Wednesday night with dinner. We usually drive Wednesday getting there for the MnG, then drive home on Monday.

    I really feel bad that you’re all alone, but the time difference really kills my ability to do so. Attending the hangout really kept me painting, but this year has been pretty poor for painting time, on or off the hangout.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    Wasn't thinking of an injection molded plastic but solely a 3D printed part. The lost-foam technique makes sense for a printed plastic part. For large volume parts (relatively speaking), the internal space usually isn’t solid. I think I’ve done a mere 15% infill before, and that would probably act quite like foam when hot metal hits it, filling the internal cavity quickly, then burning away the outer layers. But it appears one could use it for either method. Kind of why I wanted to try. I want to say PLA was given the thumbs up by whoever I was reading, but that ABS was unsuitable, mostly because the PLA was a lower temp material so would burn off easier rather than just melting and lumping up. Since Bones would be PVC... to the Googles! Melting points: PLA = 65C glass transition (my nozzle temp is 220C; emits lactide when melted) ABS = 105C glass transition (read nozzle temps 230C; emits styrene when melting) PVC = 85C glass transition (melts between 100C and 260C; and one website said toxic when melted!) Should note that other things emitted on all three, but not going into details here, so maybe that was why ABS was discouraged. Take away is that it might be possible to use a Bones (assuming it’s a PVC-ish material) to cast, but I would do that outside and upwind, and I’m part Harkonnen. Seriously, the bottom section of Wikipedia’s page on PVC is filled with hazards and such. Being between PLA and ABS is a positive maybe, but being so solid sounds like a negative. Wonder if a quick two part plaster mould would be better in that case.

    Have to share! There’s a frozen turkey drive at work tomorrow, but they set a large crate outside to collect them this morning. They had to put a sign on it to only put the turkeys in starting in the morning otherwise the bears will eat them overnight! Made me laugh.

  10. I was about to suggest two part epoxy, but it has a tendency to yellow. So unless it is hidden by decorations, I wouldn’t use that. Plastic model glue I think fogs up as well. I believe that’s a tip from some time in the ancient past regarding the plastic cockpit “glass” for model airplanes. Perhaps a search for tips on that will lead to a very informative article or forum discussion.

    Probably which side makes one smaller and which side makes one bigger. And there’s a caterpillar smoking a hooka just out of frame.

    If we could only get PLA into a fine enough resolution, I’ve read it can be used in lost-wax methods. Really interested in trying it, but just need to get a forge, the green sand, time, some money, etc.

    Yard had been cleansed of tree debris. Again. Time for a shower, then maybe prep a figure for a speed paint YouTube tomorrow. Unless I get some suggestions, it’s going to be pretty random.

    I do believe there is some surgery that new managers go through that removes that portion of their brain which allows them to differentiate between reality and fantasy. The shear amount of times this week I’ve been directed to change what reality is has been astounding. Oh, and for a good laugh, my daughter has decided her spirit animal is no longer the Pilsbury dough boy and is now Gordon Ramsey. Before you “aw, that’s cute” to a little girl, she’s 14. My kids are weird. Alexa’s shopping list is filled with unmentionables, and I’m not talking lingerie.
