So. Things are looking up?
More like, ‘Things will be looking up once I can find cheap light-up junk to break, and some of those clear plastic piggy bank-esque plugs for my pebbles.’
DVA helped me re-size the ‘pebbles’ from the kind you might use to stone people with to something more appropriate. It’ll cost a lot less now, but I’m really going to need some assistance cutting the hole into the ‘pebbles’ in SolidWorks after I’ve found the aforementioned plugs [more like: creating the perfect hole for the plug to go into].
I don’t really know what to do about the dish right now; nothing’s really working the way I want it to. I made an actual bowl in SW (thanks to Jes), but its sort of boring. My mind was thinking of a lot more drama and dynamics in the shape and position it should rest on a table…so we’ll see.
Jes helped me out with a combo of rectilinear + curves + brutalist idea, so I’m going to plop that into SW today, too.
We also have some crazy [but good in the long run] guidelines for how to do our boards.
In general, I really appreciate how hard DVA pushes us to work so hard. But its stressful, none the less.
1. make 9 different pebble shapes on Alias [x]
2. find LED things [X]
3. cut holes in ‘pebbles’ and shell them out in SW [X]
4. make ‘dish’ [X]
5. 3D print [X]
