I really should update this place here more frequently.
In any case, I have a job now... (have had a job for past 7 months now actually)
I'm working with a material called re-board.
Building 3D stuff out of it, mainly exhibition boxes. So I had to learn how to operate a big industrial cutter and a big industrial printer.
I also use my 3d knowledge to build and design these boxes before they are confirmed by the contractor, so I guess I just became a professional 3D modeler/designer (heh)
It's quite fun, while I'm not messing everything up
It's like working with a massive origami machine, so all 3D has to come to a reality from a big 2D re-board plane.
Also I can only fold stuff, one way
Also I have to print before I cut and fold it
Also, the printed side has to stay faced down, so I can't see where the hell I'm folding it...
Also, if I mess even a little bit up, either by:
forgetting the synchronization dots
messing up so the print schematics and cut schematics don't match
mirroring the print file in a wrong way
forgetting to convert from RGB to CMYK
using a too low dpi fail
forgetting to attach the material to the printer so it doesn't shake when printing
forgetting to attach the material to the cutter so it doesn't shake when cutting
forgetting to calibrate the printer head height so it doesn't crash in to the material and sound the alarm like the factory is burning
forgetting to turn on the UV, print heater lights
forgetting to use gloves so the print gets dirty fingerprints
etc etc etc etc etc....
...so if I mess any of that stuff up, I basically create ~80-100€ of damage in a nanosecond and have to start again
So what can I say?
It's fun but stressful, sometimes I work the whole weekends away (so that's like 12 days straight), on the other hand, I get them back with an intrest
(and get a week to rest, with pay)
The pay is ok, at least by Estonian standards
I can finally get back to working on my Toyota MR2 V6 project, that I can now finance
My hobby 3d projects suffer (what else is new)
aaaand I STILL haven't finished the university, because I just can't seem to make time for it. OH NOES
I'm ACX, and these were the 00:04 o' clock news o/
