It's only a mystery as to why it took so long for me to Getoffmyduff.

More to follow.

I guess it's a mystery because even you don't know what it is, until it is finished.

OK, ok, You guys know that almost every thing coming out of Burley's shop starts off on a computer screen. So the following two images took nearly 2 weeks to draw, edit, redraw, and edit again. The drawing became so intense that if I clicked to make one tiny change, it would bury the computer for an hour. Every crossover point had a minimum of 4 associated parameters. (Parametric modeling).






That is your first clue.

Not exactly Karl, but I like where your heading. Here is what the overly elaborate previous 2 images were trying to depict. Hint: It is not the infamous 'chiclet' keyboard on an IBM PCjr.

Thanks for all that responded. My connection just took a dump, and the blurb that I had so carefully constructed just went the way of the TP.
Continuing...the above picture tells the story of the computer, but when it comes to the reality of it. This was the result of the 228C molten ABS that
printed out. There are 288 3.5mm squares, .7mm high, on a .4mm backstrip. The squares positioned .2mm apart.



Not what the computer displayed in the 3rd shot. But with some light sanding with 320 grit sandpaper and a coat of gray primer, they start to look good.





After a little hand painting the mystery should be solved. (Karl actually solved it yesterday via PM. (Can't keep an old sleuth down.)





More later.

Jim
