I can't take the credit for the original buildings, they're based on these: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12673
I just modified them a bit to make the "3" buildings bigger than the "2"s, and added the scoring symbols on them.
Finally on the wall.
I posted this elsewhere on the site, but this seems to be the best place for it. I mostly spend my time painting and drawing, but every now and then I need to do something in 3D to relax.
Recently I've been inspired by watching @frankippolito and @norman painting toys. I found these fun Skylanders toys for half the price in the shop so I decided to re-paint them and give them a more Steampunk look.
I think it was Adam who said he was doing Steampunk before it was a thing? Well so did I, I always loved that kind of aesthetic. Plus I am a big fan of the books by the "founding fathers" of current Steampunk, especially Tim Powers. He actually endorses my jeweller line that I came up with some years ago.
I built this Case for my 1989 Batman hot toys figures, background and floor are made from the 1989 original comic release. Pretty simply but I thought it turned out pretty cool.
This was one of my first project, a three axis laser spiro graph using a UV laser and PWM speed controllers. The idea was going to be control if using a Raspberry pi, and i did write a lot of the code. But in the end decided it was not something i really had the time to do (meant learning a lot of web coding). But as you can see from the video it works ok in manual mode. And of course it has a big red switch to turn the laser on and off :)
Just finished this steampunk style alarm clock. It started with an alarm clock kit from CanaKit and some gears from an old broken clock movement. It took some time to get everything functional but after a lot of trial and error it's finally working well!

Hey guys and gals. I have been meaning to post for a while but hadn't found the time. I have been a fan of tested for about a year now and love the idea of the maker movement and the maker community. I am a hobbyist leather worker from the uk, self taught with the help of some great youtubers putting out great video tutorials. Leather working doesn't seem to have taken off so much in the maker community but I believe it is one of those disciplines that may not self identify as makers but certainly are (the type of discipline that Adam is trying to reach out to and bring in to the community through the nation of makers initiative). I am as well, however, interested in many more disciplines throughout the maker spectrum even if I am not currently partaking in them. Below is what I believe to be my best work so far and wanted to show you guys. Its a handbag made for my other half's mother's 60th birthday. It is by far the most ambitious thing i have attempted to make so far and i believe the best executed. Sorry for the number of pictures but I want to show off all the details of the piece. Thanks for taking the time to look. I hope you find something like this interesting. Hopefully be a lot more to follow.
Ok. So I dont seem to be able to post photos. Not even 1 at a time. :S
I'm currently building a K-2SO droid puppet. Was honored to have Norm interview me at the recent RPF party in North Hollywood. I'll be posting as I finish him over the next two months on the RPF. http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=263259 I love joining communities of makers. This forum list has some incredible pieces.
@Hydra: My wife wants you to know with a smile and a laugh that that's just wrong sir. LOL
