    CNC with notchplate

    Another part for the CNC router arrived today. I never expected it to be delivered so fast. I ordered it friday afternoon and payed saturday. I was not at home when the package arrived, but fortunately the DPD employee decided to give it to my neighbours instead of taking it back with him. Might have something to do with the weight of the package (ca. 9kg) ….

    And another order arrived today: 136 neodymium magnet spheres of 5mm diameter. They are so much fun to play with and even have educational value! You can visualise some basic materialsciences principles such as close-packing of spheres and edge dislocations.

    Even platonic solids can be constructed. Unfortunately I only have enough spheres for two pentagonal dodecahedrons (made of twelve pentagonal faces) and one decagonal dodecahedron made of twelve decagonal faces.
