Re: Building Structure/Frame

I can't imagine a graphene air bag that can hold a vacuum. Vacuum containers are heavy. Why didn't this tanker car float? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM-k1zofs58 (Full episode https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxRY4DO4-dwo_NJVkXKxnv5e6aDE9umHQ ) Helium is 0.18 grams per liter.

Re: Bogg (Cosmic seeds)

The first thing to pop into my head for Cognito Blueberry were the creatures from X-Files - Detour. Not plant people, but camouflaged/invisible people who looked organic.

Re: The First Letter of Captain Kid

I think he's a bot selling satin sheets (link at the bottom of his post). Have been seeing a lot of vague posts that seem semi-relevant.

Saw one on the 3dprinting thread asking about setting up printers at sporting events. With a link to a rice cooker!

Good job on the letter BTW.

Re: 3D Printing

The detachable cargo hold is here (print to the same scale). Precariat-Cargo.jpg The solar panels were difficult to orient, and require a lot of support material due to the "fan-fold" design. I don't recommend printing the panels. You can probably make something better by folding your own panels fr...

Re: 3D Printing

Have been trying to manipulate the Precariat model for 3D printing (even though I don't own or have access to a 3D printer). Hoping people can test printing these files on their hardware and post photos. Used Meshlab ( meshlab.net ) to "clean up" the model and reduce complexity to something more fri...

Cargo Design

The standard cargo hold is a basic design. Just a big open space. The current docking design uses mooring lines and a clamping system that "pulls" the ship to the cargo hold. See the cargo design thread for details. You can design any style of "cargo" you like as long as it matches the current docki...
