Extreme close ups. Sometimes I want to show very small details so I got a cheapy digital microscope. Works pretty good so far. Time to explore the tiny world around me.

Fbf to when we made magnetic levitation devices for a school project. It uses a pair of IR sensors to detect the position of the metal object and oscillates the electromagnet to levitate the metal object.

Copper Electroplated Darth Vader 3D Print

Copper Darth Vader

Here you have it, folks! I successfully electroplated a 3D ABS plastic print with copper. Its my first attempt and I’m  rather pleased. I’ll have to keep tweaking my setup until my results improve and then finally I’ll plate with nickel. So far, Darth Vader is looking very stylish. Onward and upward!
