Making things at the Cambridge MakespaceSun 09 December 2018
I joined the Cambridge Makespace, my local community workshop, earlier this year. I've made a few nice simple things on a laser cutter since, and wanted to share a couple of my favourites.
I've been trained on a 3D printer and the CNC router and look forward to using those skills soon too!
Iridescent chip necklace
I ordered this amazing acrylic with an iridescent film over it.
I love iridescent things, and made a necklace in a shape resembling a microchip with PCB tracks coming from it. It's a bit fragile, and I wonder if layering some reflecting acrylic behind it would make it look better, but it's pretty cool!
Here is me dressing up by myself at home with the necklace. I call this look "Goth Hacker".
I love alpacas and made these simple bois that have since been used as keyrings, a mount for an RFID tag, a lapel pin, and as a little friend stuck to the bezel of my monitor.
Floppy disk pin
I went to a party the other week where someone younger than me complimented my "save" pin.💀
I've made some small gifts for loved ones also. I hope to find more time to make stuff in the new year!
