KORN & MAC WAY SERVO-SOUND cables

- Print

Since a few years I have a legendary KORN & MAC WAY SERVO-SOUND Cybernetic preamplifier with its 2 active speakers.
But unfortunately I only own one of the 2 proprietary cables so I'm unable to listen to it (or only on 1 of the 2 speakers).
And these cables are nearly impossible to find (I've been searching a lot and never found one).

So I decided to make another one by myself...

Having fun with Meshmixer and Sculptris

- Software

Yesterday I had some little spare time between two projects so I decided to train myself at using Meshmixer and Sculptris.
I had no precise idea of what to do before I reminded a famous René Magritte painting from 1934 that would be a perfect subject for Meshmixer.
Along with a bit of Sculptris, I thought it should be possible to achieve a good result in a short time.

In just as little as 3 hours of time I had a new sculpture ready to be printed...

How to modify a STEP file in DesignSpark Mechanical (tutorial)

- Tutorials

On the DesignSpark forum many people are asking why a STEP file is locked and can't be updated when imported in DSMech.
And they are right to think that this is a very bad point !
I completely agree and I hope the developers will allow STEP modifications in future versions. DSMech will gain popularity if they do so !

But there's a solution and it's called SketchUp...

Edited 29/04/2014 : there's a much easier way as mentioned by Didier in the comments. Thanks Didier !

SketchUp + DesignSpark tutorial 1

I untitled one of my previous post "DesignSpark Mechanical : the perfect companion to SketchUp".
And I wanted to do another post that would explain which are the most useful tools in "DS Mech" for SketchUppers.

Finally I decided to do it as a tutorial...

Remeshing in SketchUp (Tutorial)

- Tutorials

Recently Gael uploaded the "Chest" parts for InMoov.

Among all the parts the plexus is made of two parts with the words "InM" and "oov" on them.
To create these parts he used a boolean operation in Blender.
But Blender didn't do a good job and the resulting parts were full of small artifacts and "spikes".

I then contacted Gael to ask him if he wanted me to try to do it better...

Saga Eugène / InMoov : Jour 69 (CAO)

- Arms

Lorsqu'on a fait le montage des moteurs pour les 2 boîtiers mécaniques constituant l'épaule gauche de InMoov, on a été surpris de constater que les pièces qui doivent recevoir les potentiomètres ne sont

  • ni identiques
  • ni réversibles (asymétriques)

Et je trouve çà un peu dommage !
Alors ce matin j'ai décidé de revoir çà...

Carving text in DS Mechanical

- Software

DS Mechanical lacks some important tools that his big brother Spaceclaim has.
One of them is the ability to create text and annotations.

Someone on the forum asked about how to carve text in a model in DS Mechanical.
Having a look at the answers given there I was just amazed at how complex the different solutions were...

While it's so simple when using the SketchUp "Text" tool !
