Null Shard Build Blurs Line Between Game And Reality With Laser Cutting, Mold Making, 3D Printing

In The Room Three, players are tasked with collecting mysterious objects known as “Null Shards”. But it seems one player, who goes by the name [Juiceman], took this challenge a bit literally. Starting with promotional art released for the game, he embarked on an epic journey to create a replica “Null Shard” that ended up looking so good that one of them is currently residing in a place of honor at the headquarters of developer Fireproof Games. The developers had previously released image files to create a papercraft version of the Null Shard on their website, so [Juiceman] based his initial CAD work on these designs. But it turned out the surface texture was a little too complex to laser etch into acrylic without making a soupy mess. He simplified it a bit, while trying to retain the overall effect. From the superb laser-etched acrylic master he made a silicone mold started casting the eight triangular panels needed for two copies of the Shard. To hold it all together [Juiceman] create a “skeleton” pyramid by first experimenting with designs on a traditional plastic FDM printer. After a few tries he had a workable design and switched over to a laser sintering machine, giving the...

Charlotte Pipe Wins Trade Case Against Chinese Fitting Producers

This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. CHARLOTTE, NC – The International Trade Commission (ITC) voted unanimously today in favor of Charlotte Pipe and Foundry and the Cast Iron Soil Pipe Institute (CISPI) in their antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petition against imports of cast iron soil pipe fittings from the People’s Republic of China. Charlotte Pipe and CISPI filed the initial AD/CVD case with the ITC in July of 2017. As part of the investigation, the U.S. Department of Commerce determined that Chinese exporters had undersold cast iron soil pipe fittings in the United States in a range of 22 to 360 percent less than fair value. Commerce also determined that China provides countervailable subsidies to its producers of cast iron soil pipe fittings at rates ranging from 7 to 134 percent.  The AD/CVD duties or penalties to counteract these unfair trade practices will go into effect immediately. “We are thrilled with winning this case so that we can protect American jobs ...

Common Misconceptions about CNC Machining Production

The rise in automation and modern technology also enables CNC machining to produce higher quantities of units at a faster pace, thereby increasing the efficiency of operations. Computer numerical control (CNC) machining is the most popular subtractive manufacturing technology. The process of subtractive manufacturing consists of starting with a stock raw material (known as the “blank piece” or “workpiece”) and then removing undesired layers of material to create the final geometry.  As the most widely used subtractive manufacturing technology, this process allows engineers and businesses to create custom geometries from a computer-aided design (CAD) file through coded programmed instruction, thereby enhancing production. Just as a sculptor can produce a custom part by cutting away undesired material, CNC machining can produce remarkably precise designs in metalworking.  Manufacturers and factories use CNC machining both for creating high-strength prototypes from metal and plastic materials as well as facilitating full-scale production at record speed. In this article, we dispel some of the most common myths and misconceptions about CNC technology and prov...

41 Things On Amazon That Keep Selling Out Because They Work So Well

Okay, it’s not the biggest problem you’ll ever have — but it’s a real bummer when a product you’re looking to purchase is sold out. Luckily, when you’re shopping on Amazon, it’s pretty unlikely that whatever you’re looking for will be sold out for a very long time — as all the genius products on Amazon are constantly being re-stocked for your convenience. Still, there are some that need to be re-stocked more often than others: because they’re so good and work better than many of their competitors. Of course, all the awesome products on Amazon with thousands of reviews aren’t the only reasons to shop on Amazon. Who can say no to free two-day shipping with Prime? And while I might argue that the two-day shipping has ruined shopping at other retailers since their shipping usually takes about a week (gasp), that just means I have to find everything I could possibly want on Amazon. Truth be told, with their extensive selection of almost literally everything under the sun, it’s not a hard feat. Whether you’re looking for help organizing your home, or you’re simply a window shopper with an itchy trigger finger scra...

World Bank President: [Updated] Naomi Klein: The Ship Must Go Down with the Captain

[Updated] Naomi Klein: The Ship Must Go Down with the Captain This brilliant article by Naomi Klein of No Logo fame makes the audacious claim that the Wolfowitz scandals are an important opportunity to debunk the notion that the World Bank has ever been interested in development or poverty reduction. The example of Russia is telling and persuasive. (update: added pundita’s response calling for criminal investigation of the Bank for crimes in DRC and elsewhere.) Here’s the whole article for those too lazy to follow the link… and below a response piece from Pundita. Sacrificial Wolfie By Naomi Klein, The Nation Posted on April 28, 2007, Printed on April 30, 2007 http://www.alternet.org/story/51157/ It’s not the act itself, it’s the hypocrisy. That’s the line on Paul Wolfowitz, coming from editorial pages around the world. It’s neither: not the act (disregarding the rules to get his girlfriend a pay raise) nor the hypocrisy (the fact that Wolfowitz’s mission as World Bank president is fighting for “good governance”). First, let’s dispense with the supposed hypocrisy problem. “Who wants to be lectured on corrupt...

The spectacular power of Big Lens | The long read | News

If you have been wearing glasses for years, like me, it can be surprising to discover that you perceive the world thanks to a few giant companies that you have never heard of. Worrying about the fraying edge of motorway lights at night, or words that slide on the page, and occasionally spending a fortune at the opticians is, for many of us, enough to think about. And spectacles are unusual things. It is hard to think of another object in our society which is both a medical device that you don’t want and a fashion accessory which you do. Buying them, in my experience anyway, is a fraught, somewhat exciting exercise that starts in a darkened room, where you contemplate the blurred letters and the degeneration of your visual cortex, and ends in a bright, gallery-like space where you enjoy the spry feel of acetate in your fingers, listen to what you are told, pay more than you were expecting to, and look forward to inhabiting a new, slightly sharper version of your existing self. The $100bn (£74bn) eyewear industry is built on feelings such as this. In the trade, the choreography that takes you from the consulting room to the enticing, bare-brick display of £200 frames is known as “...

The Government kicks off the selection process to find modular house builders for its KiwiBuild scheme

Large scale prefabricated housing construction has come a step closer with the Government’s KiwiBuild scheme issuing an Invitation to Participate (ITP) to building companies capable of developing suitable offsite manufacturing operations. The ITP invites suppliers to present proposals for delivering modular homes that meet KiwiBuild’s criteria for design, manufacturing and assembly. When the Government announced its plans to build 100,000 affordable KiwiBuild homes over the next 10 years, it said prefabricated construction may be one way of bring down the construction cost of dwellings. The Head of the KiwiBuild programme, Stephen Barclay, said exploring the opportunities that offsite manufacturing could offer in terms of innovation and scale could drive a real step change in the availability, quality and cost of affordable housing. “While the first KiwiBuild homes in Auckland are already on the market and we have deals with a number of developers around the country for hundreds more over the next 12 months alone, offsite manufacturing has long been identified as  a potential game changer,” Barclay said. “When we look at the proposals, consistent q...

How to brighten your home with houseplants that bloom

Brighten your indoor décor with plants that bloom. Whether growing traditional favorites, flowering tropical plants or annuals moved inside for winter, their colorful flowers are sure to elicit smiles and months of enjoyment. Just provide the right growing conditions and sufficient light, and you will be enjoying months of indoor color. You may have enjoyed an initial burst of color from traditional favorites like African violets and orchids but struggled to get them to flower again. Maximize your enjoyment and their colorful floral display by providing supplemental lighting. Plants with colorful flowers benefit from brighter or longer periods of light, especially in winter, than what streams through your windows. Grow lights, which provide bright, full-spectrum illumination, are an ideal solution. You can find many types of grow lights, including simple hanging lamps, DIY fixtures and metal stands. These are often relegated to the rec room or basement but might be less welcome in your living room. Consider furniture-style light stands like the Bamboo LED Grow Light Gardens that will complement your living spaces. They’re outfitted with special high-output bulbs, tucked ou...
