Every Friday, Or Thereabouts


; Print?

Hmm.. I haven't 3D Printed anything, this week.
With Mother's Day looming, I spent last weekend working on a Scrabble Scorepad so that me and Mum could have a nice game of Scrabble IRL, but I could tot it up using an app because I'm getting too fucking lazy to bother adding all the scores up in my head anymore.
The app works reasonably well, and over the course of a couple of games, I woked out all the quirks, and things are now quite nice.

It's probably something that would be popular on the AppStore, but I'm wary about putting it up there, and having to use the word 'Scrabble' in the description.
You just know it'd get a C&D after an hour!!!
Bah. I'm not enough of a bastard to make any progress in this world of Indie Dev.

Anyhoo, with all that taking up the majority of the weekend, I didn't get any time to piss about with 3D printing.
I still haven't finished the 'Pixel->Model' converter thing I started a couple of weeks ago.
I'd really love to do a proper Platdude model, but without 'chunkier' blocks, he won't stay solid for long.

Plans are afoot.
... I just need to get that foot out of my arse, and make a move.

Having sifted through a lot of his back catalogue, I honestly can’t tell if this guy is a parody, or what!!
