Civil War Amputation Saw

My wife thinks I’m losing it, but I decided to create this Civil War era saw after seeing it on this web site. It’s sort of in line with the antique syringe, and easy to model. I know I’m missing some detail where the blade connects to its brass holder, but the decidedly low-res image I worked from did not have sufficient resolution.

Even though I’ve been using Cinema4D on-and-off for more than four years, I still consider myself a newbie, so I need all the practice I can get! This little project was fun, and I learned a lot along the way.

Antique Syringe

More practice using another excellent tutorial from Nikolaus Schatz. This is easily the cleanest 3D model I ever made. It stands up to very close inspection.

Nixie Tubes

I found an excellent tutorial on YouTube for this one.

I have always loved the look of these things. I’ve been tempted on more than one occasion to purchase a Nixie tube clock, but really nice ones can be a bit extravagant. Despite the high cost, they are still very much in demand.

If you are a Nixie tube aficionado, you will love this amazing video of the exacting art of making Nixie Tubes.

Mission Bio

So many favorites from our photo shoot at Mission Bio. What a great group! Thanks to all of you.

Xenophon Gala Photo Booth

The “boof” was a huge hit again at this year’s Gala, held at the amazing Blackhawk Auto Museum, who claims to have the World’s Best Car Collection. Having seen the collection, it’s hard to argue with that.

I made a couple of small changes to my photo booth this time. I used a somewhat smaller rig on a single C-stand and added a little music, which made the gear more manageable, and loosened up participants even more. (It may also help to explain the huge popularity of the microphone props.) This year’s Gala featured a rockin’ 50’s theme. As you can see, everyone who stepped into the booth had a blast.
