You might be right.

Some background info is what people would really appreciate.

Size?
Materials?
Electronics?

etc..etc

Hey xl97

sure thing.


It has been scaled based on a screen shot from the show where they are in a cigarette ash tray. I've got them at just under 45mm wide and about 15mm tall.

The one in the gif was done in Sterling Silver.

It contains a small lipo pouch cell, an ATTiny microcontroller, some 1206 SMD LEDs, and a magnetic reed switch.

Had a great time recreating this. My friend and I are working on a custom PCB to fufill new orders. We're looking to add capacitive touch, for a mode where the stack only glows when you touch it.

Sounds great so far!


Thanks for posting the details.

Were these cast or machined?

They were cast from 3D printed waxes.

The same method works for Gold, Brass, ect.

Cheaper options include various treatments of binder jetted stainless steel.

Lost (wax) castings.. got it!

Thanks!


I mentioned machining because I thought I had read it in one of the comments in the link.. (figured I'd follow up on it)

@AdamHunter yes. Is there a special section for that?
Yes there is. There is a "Project Runs" section specifically for that purpose: https://www.therpf.com/forumdisplay.php?f=75

However, in order to start a new run, or sell anything on this forum, you have to be a Premium Member, which requires a subscription. The subscription is really cheap ($4/month or $36/yr) and can be done here:
https://www.therpf.com/payments.php

There are other rules regarding posting to the Project Runs section from the Premium Member info (https://www.therpf.com/faq.php?faq=community_info#faq_premium_member):

"Ability to create threads in the Project Runs forum (provided that you have been a member for 90 days and have at least 50 posts)"

So you'll have to meet that criteria as well. Sorry if that was a lot of info, i just wanted to make sure you have everything you need. This is a super cool project I'd love to see on the Project Runs section.

Did anything happen with this? Never saw it on the production runs section. Would love to get my hands on one of these!
