Self-portrait I did last year (2020). My eyes are not actually brown like on painting.
Random sketches from my notebook.
“Moved by the moon and inspired by the stars.”
Illustration of simplified and stylized people. Based on photos on this website. I’m one of them.
And video about CNC woodworking:
It uses special candle flickering LEDs.
My desk clock is taking a shape. Once a day, it contacts with NTP time server to synchronise the clock.
On one way it is simple and minimal. But I want to make it more wild.
Code on GitHub “Lavva kellä” .
Last week I designed this board game table. It has four sides and users can select what they like to play. Most interesting part for me was to come up with a locking mechanism and 3d-print it.
3d and CNC files are designed completely with Onshape free maker version.
In the last few weeks, I have learned how to package my Serial Plotter app into Ubuntu Snap format and made it available in Snapgraft.io snap store. Also, I have a plan to make it available as a Flatpak.
It took a lot of time to fix all the small bugs. And to test it on different machines. Now it’s usable.
And I had made Windows 10 version. It’s on GitHub.
This is some selected pages from my last year (2020) notebook.
Some illustrations i did this autumn. They are digitally painted watercolours.
This autumn I learned SketchUp. It is quite different what I have used to use. In work, I use mainly SolidWorks and OnShape on free-time projects. I think SketchUp is good for thing which it is intended: to quickly visualise ideas. And plus side is that lot of other programs can import SketchUp files.
It is easy to import SketchUp files to Twinmotion. And instantly they look a lot better and more realistic.
Solar sailer or just array of photoresistors
This my little project to measure light. It has 6*8 photoresistors or pixels. So I can measure 48 different values. A longer-term idea is to make small photosensor. I’ve done a little python script and app to display data: a heatmap graph.
What i learned so far
- I should measure all resistors and LDRs first. So that they have the same value.
