It looks like we lost all scale models from the Slack. I am going to address young audience at our local school and wondering it might be a good idea to take some laser cut models - WREN, BLACKBIRD or SKYLARK.
I am in the middle of designing a 1/6 scale model (18 mm → 3 mm). I was planning on justing using the scale function on any CAD package. However due to the number of assemblies and subassemblies I’ve decided to use a small diameter end bit rather than a laser cutter. The sheet size for 3 mm is different to the 4x8 to so the parts will need to be renested before getting gcode. I’m more than happy to share the repo once it’s ready!
I co-created the old scale model channel on slack for wikihouse. Seems I’d have to pay to get access to the old archive records that were posted. Or is it truly the case that all posted scale models are not salvageable? I have my own server and non-profit hosting derivatives of wikihouse & open source ecology housing models. Most of my scaled wikihouse models for laser cutting should be hosted on the Open House Party server. Would you all appreciate a url link to the Open House Party repository? I would appreciate feedback on how to host engaging intangible public housing assets for production demos.
You can download any wikihouse model file, and scale down by 6. i.e. 18mm material will become 3mm. With a slight tolerance adjustment on the laser cutter, we have managed to cut ours. Our sample cut images are here Instagram-PulpBuild
I’ll be releasing developments more publically as I’m funded… and indexing the work of other nonprofits like Wikihouse, Precious Plastic, Open Source Ecology, etc and other open source based companies like V1 Engineering’s CNC machines of which I rely on… I’ll be attempting to cut (scale) wikihouse parts with a 24W laser and/or cnc machine… Public financial support will help me to release my own derivatives…
