I really like to get into the nitty gritty of how things are made to fully understand them. While it may not be important for some people, I figured it would be nice to include. On this page, you'll find the source files, makings of, and anything else I think might be interesting about the production of the tutorials presented on this site.
- Watch the animation from within the Blender source file. You can also zoom and pan around to see it from different angles if you so choose.
- The Blender file is all you need on any system to get into the nitty gritty of how this was made.
- While there are no real source files for this, I originally came up with a different Haiku that I decided not to use as I didn't find it as interesting. I just find it cool that there's more then one way to explain how to do this project in such a limited space:
Grab one LED
Wrap legs around battery
Add magnet and tape!
- Again, while there's no real source files for this project, it's based off of a paper I wrote with a friend. You can read the paper to discover why we decided to do this, and how we converted between DIY tutorials and recipes.
- First, no, I don't know how to solve a rubik's cube. Second, yes, the video was reversed. Third, no, I will never figure out how to make it pretty again.
- Build instructions in case you want to make your own.
- In case you want to hear all takes, synced together, without the backing track.
- In case you want to hear the best of each take, edited to a single take, without any backing track.
- In order to Make several of these projects, you would need to make a 3D model of the parts or materials you're showing off. I've provided my finished pieces so you can look/work with them as you want, but they don't tell the story of how easy/difficult it is to actually make any of these components individually. With that in mind, I decided to make a quick instructable on how I made one of the 3D models (I say quick, but it took at least three times as long to make the instructable as it did to actually 3D model the LED).
