  1. Here's the last pics and video (taken on day) for a best quality! Enjoy them! Video
  2. Hello everybody! After a very long two days of hard work and some little injuries at my fingers I'm glad to say that I've finished my mod. I had some problems with the oval acrilyc mid body, so I couldn't place where it supposed to be (the thermoforming was wrong, I tried to fix but I damaged both pieces). I don't place the LED's due the short time and also, the acrilyc rod wich transmits the movement broke (it was too fragile)! But, despite that problems, the modding it's working and I'm very happy to have finished! It worth to be mentioned that I broke my own personal record to finish a mod, from 1 week to 2 days only! I'm sorry for the bad pics and also the dirty place, but I don't have any chance to clean up and to get a better camera (I used my iPhone 3GS); also I'm very tired now! Here's the final pics. Enjoy it so many like me! Good luck to everyone!!
  3. The Assembly - 1st Step Well, I have to say that this mod is taking me more time that I thought, however was my fault to leave all this time and begin the last week (since my friends/suppliers of the laser cut machine and thermoforming did their best, but too late also)! I'm not surrendering, but if this means that I'm disqualified so sad, but I will update my mod till I finish! So, here are some pics and the first assembly of my mod! Enjoy it! The LED's PCB The base just finished of machinig The acetal rod The rod finished of machining Smoothing the base into the lathe The base with the linear guides Cutting After a lot of thiny drills, here's the first assembly of the fins arms
  4. The Components Here's almost all the components that will be needed to assemble the mod. Let's begin with all the acrilyc stuff...! At the same time, I'm using my Home-made CNC Router to make some things, like the mini gear motor bracket It worth to be mentioned that some cuts of the acrilyc stuff are wrong, so early tomorrow I will go again with the guy to make again the wrong pieces...! Stay tunned tomorrow for the great ending during all the day! hehe
  5. OMG! It seems that today will be a long work day, due the guys with the laser machine and the thermoforming will finish today my pieces. I would have liked I to make the pieces, but due the time to finish that's so hard. Today at night, I will upgrade more pics, info and stuff! Stay tuned!
  6. Hardware The Hardware that I've used to make this beautiful mod is a "Zotack ZBox Plus nano". This "Palm-sized mini-PC" it's a perfect candidate to make a mod with all the components in one! The mini size of the MotherBoard it's perfect due I can make a mod with small size and minimun space needed for itself! The current size of the MotherBoard is 120mm x 120mm, as you can see into the follow image: the same size of a commonly FAN! In the following days, with help of my own home-made CNC Router, an acrlylic laser machine and the thermoforming, I'll begin to make the mid sphere, supports and some levers for the fins, 8 in total! Unfortunately today I can't bought the material needed, since today in Mexico (December 1st), was the succession of power and change of president and all the stores and suppliers didn't open today, damn! Hope the monday at first time, I can buy all the material needed to begin!
  7. Introduction Taking the inspiration by one of the most popular manufacturers in the pneumatic market FESTO Jelly Fish, this scratch modding has become one of the most complicated mods that I've ever try to make by two reasons: due the materials and size, since the acrylic it's really brittle when it's too thin. And the size, it's almost the same as the original robot made by FESTO (25cm of diameter sphere)! And the another reason, maybe the most important is that I've only the hardware needed and the design. Lamentably my current job took me too many time, so I only have less than 7 days to finish the project... it's a crazy time, but not impossible! The first step to make this mod, was to begining the designing based into the inspiration and my hardware. To make the design, I've used SolidWorks 2011; since it's the main software that I use into my job to design machinery and another stuff!
  8. Meduz (A) by ne(V)esis Prologue Meduz (A) is a incredible "jellyfish style" scratch modding. That includes a marvelous stylish, aesthetic, colored glowing LEDs and also a smooth movement in its small body made from acrylic, acetal and aluminium. Made from scratch, is one of the most complicated but also beautiful mod that I ever wanted to made. No doubt, a master piece of innovation, aesthetic and technology in one piece.

  9. Done, I've registered into the contest! Hope this year the competition will be harder and see marvelous mods from the people around the world! I will do my best, so good luck to everybody! ne(V)esis
  10. Greetings comunity, I ask an apology to all those who followed and watched my worklog. But due to force majeure, as well as the work, is very difficult for me to say this, but I can not finish my project. I started my project so excited, but I will be impossible to finish it. Good luck to all competitors around the world! I hope you can understand and accept me back again next year. Thanks, ne(V)esis
  11. Here are another diagram of the current status of my design. I can mentioned, that the case are more refined and detailed, almost ready! It's just a time cuestion when I decide to finish the details and start with the laser cut... It's the most slowly and difficult project than I have done before, including the design itself. I hope once the pieces are cut with the laser machine, the folding and all the assembly, being more faster. But, there's another problem now; due I'm currently are investing in my own business (website), I don't have cash for now. I will need a miracle to continue! And just when starting to come out of the difficulty of the design itself...! I hope that can finish my mod into the limit time or earlier! Cheers! ne(V)esis
  12. Greetings community! I promise more progress (3D design) for tomorrow! I've been going a little more since the last days and it seems that as soon start with the laser cuts. Cheers! ne(V)esis
  13. It's been a while from my last post. But like almost all of here, I've been very busy with my job and stuff. So, by the moment, it's the first design using SolidWorks. And it is worth mentioning that it's the hardest thing that I have designed before. As it has very much curves and holes, so it's very difficult to proyect the main idea into a 3D design. Plus that I will make some parts in laser cutting. Well, here's the current progress of my proyect. So, the next time I post, I hope to be the first laser cut pieces. Untill then...!
