Hi All:

  Ive been working on a new celtic module as I have interest in generatin g some nice jewelry type
boxes of a celtic theme. Its a complex module and is taking me a very long time as I want it to
be the most configura ble celtic fill manager I can make in order to allow as much artistic expressio n
as possible with celtic knots. That math kinda facinates me as its a great deal of chick/egg type
thinking.

   the idea is to allow any shape to be filled with a celtic know that morphs to the shape its given,
for example to make a celtic know based clock face. The module is far from done, but here's a
sample photo of the stl output from a simple square box fill of celtics.

   The generator will put out closed contours for simple vcarving or machine, STL's for 3d printing
and grey scale depth photos for laser engraving when done.

 I was impressed by the stl so far, so I figured Id post a photo of it.l

Hi Art
I can think of a number of places where I could use these - It would be fun as a replaceme nt for spokes in some places.

Cool!  I knew there was a reason I was drooling over the [url+https://www.sherline.com/product/8540/]Sherline CNC ad[/url]...  Mrs. Moose's latest approach is to ask where I'm going to put any proposed tool purchases, and so far "In the new shop building" hasn't been a winning approach (want to build one on the Bokeelia property).  At least this is pretty small.

The Delta shaper is making chips, although the homemade 2x2 steel tubing stand needs the motor's mounting holes moved so the belt cover will close.   Wondering if an eBay BS-0 dividing head will work on it.  The Moose woodshop is slowly progressi ng, although it's been disrupted a couple times by medical events.  Discovere d that leaning too far back when applying construct ion adhesive to ceiling beams (fixing hundred year old problems, can't complain since they outlasted the guy that installed them by around 80 years so far while supportin g up to 30 or so tons of hay) while two steps up a stepladde r gets you a trip to the ER where a nice NP will stitch you back together,.  Took the stitches out a couple days ago and will try and remember to move the ladder next time.  

Maybe you can add the guilloche module next Smiley

Kirk:

    Ive already begun last year reading up on guilloche methods and theory. I have some code
cobbled together for after Ive finished obscessin g on Celtics. Ive wondered what a lasered
guilloch would look like so I suspect youll see that eventuall y.

  Celtics will be another month or two I suspect, its been in developme nt for awhile
but keeps biting me on certain complexit ies..
