Weatherboards finished

February 21, 2010

Finally finished putting up the weatherboards on the front of the house last week. Kylie whacked a coat of paint on them, and I reckon it looks pretty darn good so far!



The sunblinds are on the way out (ordered new ones about 4 weeks ago), and the guttering, facia eaves and roof all have plans to be completed soonish.

Currently we are gap-filling the weatherboards, and then a couple new coats of paint, and up go the exterior lights. Cant wait to see the house with exterior lights for the first time!



Number 5 makes first CAM object

February 21, 2010

So, today I created the first object that was fully designed in CAD, and then the CAM process started, and the entire thing was created without my input.

A perfect example of what can be done.

16mm MDF, with a spray painted base (found in hard rubbish). The edges are rounded with three pass smoothing, and the lettering was created to be round (kind of like a inverted speedbump).



The pups

February 8, 2010

Pics first.

Now that you have seen the pics, I will explain. They are a male and female German Shepard cross with Rrottweiler. They were found dumped, hungry and a bit scared. Their tales have been docked (fuckers) by the previous owner, but had not been desexed, wormed, vaccinated etc. Basically the last owner was a ass. We saw them at the Baccus Marsh Pound last Friday, and fell in love. We picked them up from Baccus Marsh Vet this afternoon. They have been desexed today so they are a bit groggy, but are waking up slowly. I think the boy is 100% awake, and the girl is about 80%. So far they seem to have a very mild temperament, and only just heard the boy bark for the first time before.

The girl is the one wearing the orange colar, she is named Echo. She is a bit smaller than the boy, and seems to be a bit skinny. We will fatten her up.

The boy is wearing teh blue colar. He is named Biscuit. He is a bit bigger, but still skinny.

Once they have settled here for a bit, I’ll get you guys to meet them. Dont worry, they are big and scary looking but are absolute sweethearts. I wont be insulted if you are cautious however. Hell people were scared of Chocky!
