I am looking for a good concrete formula to pour into molds.
Currently I am using this: 2 parts portland-composite cement (CEM II), 1 part Sand, 1 part water.
I'm ok with the consistency of the mixture, it flows enough to be poured into the molds and it represents details well enough.

The problem I have with it that the surface is dusty to the touch, I'm looking for something that you can wipe fingers over it and they stay clean.
It should also be able to be done using common hardware store ingredients, and not be in the price range of specialized mixtures sold for this purpose.

The final project should be to make viable speaker enclosures with the concrete poured cnc machined EPS foam molds.
Any additives are fine as long as they are non-toxic and not expensive.

I've read about steel wool for instance.

Sounds like the concrete hasn't properly cured. You should look up immersion curing, especially since your water to cement ratio is below .4 which will cause a tendency for it to dry out. Long story short, after the concrete sets, you need to immerse it in water for a period of time for the cement hydration to complete. The amount of time will vary greatly on temperature/etc., but that should help you out I hope?

What's the component of (what I assume machine) engineering education that makes one machine-savvy?

I'm an upstart 3D artist and I view the huge popularity of organic and fantasy-themed work among amateurs as a result of people in general lacking technical education. We just don't know shit about how anything works, we don't recognize, interpret or memorize individual mechanisms etc. Picrelated is a good example, I have just the foggiest idea why that hatch looks the way it does and I'd never reproduce most of the detail it has (I'd do a mostly featureless "Apple" casing). If I had to flesh out the innards of some factory ruins I'd have to spend a day googling stuff before even getting an idea on how it's supposed to appear, let alone withstand any scrutiny.

Even mainstream fiction's partially dominated by fantasy (when you throw out all the non-fictitious settings), you can get away with shit, man made environment is hardly ever the focus (unless were talk glowing magical gems or swords). Sure it gets botched as well, but it's easier to brush off, since it's not supposed to be historically accurate and muh magic (boy, I sure wish Vikings had that excuse). Sci-fi on the other hand... it's pretty easy to ruin the enjoyment of something through sheer ignorance the author displays.

So, how do I educate myself (on the internet, for free)? I obviously don't need to learn much about materials or the math as I'll never attempt to build anything, but I want to make believable looking machines. Even for people who know their shit. I want to be confident I can deliver something nobody will cringe painfully at.

for that hatch, it's the weak point in a vessel that has to withstand a lot of pressure. the spacecraft (?) is a giant balloon, and that hatch is like sewing a patch into it. maybe it' still has to work even if something dents the outside.

in my opinion, it's better to understand the concepts and extrapolate the details, rather than copying the details (which may not make sense out of context).

I went to an engineering school, though my focus was more in the area of chemical engineering.

In any case, at some point, I decided I wanted more "machine-savy," which I took to mean understanding how things are actually assembled and function in the real world. In the end, I took a course in machining metal, on mills and lathes. It was at a trade school, and rather intense (3 hours per day for two semesters), but I think it gave me a perspective of these things which would be hard to get in other ways.

At one level, we were making things like threaded screws or teeth on gears. There is a lot of nuance to the design of these things, which doesn't come out unless one is designing or building them. At another level, the machines themselves (the mills, lathes, and others) had intricacies which had to be understood. Which gears to use, how to align belts or shafts, etc.

Short of going through a full course in manufacturing engineering to see all the methods by which things are made, I highly recommend the series of YouTube videos by Dan Gelbart. The man has a ton of patents, and is easily a multimillionaire from his inventions, but takes the time to sit down in an amazing shop (his personal, home shop, that would rival those in many universities or tech firms) and create detailed tutorials. If you go through the 18 videos, I guarantee you'll see the various manufactured objects around you in a different light.

For your viewing pleasure:

So does the "Spacetime fabric" have a capacity for inertia? It's stuff, isn't it? so if you applied enough inertia, you could warp it. And could this relate at all to zero friction, which, apparently impossible, could be approached with fluids of varying viscosity in a torus?

Not on the subject of space-time fabric, but is there a principle limit to superfluidics? I had read that for certain materials, superfluid rotation is accompanied by vortices in the material. With sufficient size, would there be a competition between the vortex speeds and cooling due to expansion, etc? I imagine by definition a superfluid is in an "optimal" configuration of atoms, so what would happen if it was exposed to expansion forces which exceeded some property of the system?

My partner and I submitted our engineering final project to our professor by e-mail. He then responded within a few minutes that he found an exact replica of our coding used for our program online, but in Spanish. He then e-mailed the Dean and we have a meeting with him this Tuesday regarding it.

The project we were assigned was to make The Snake Game using Excel VBA coding. Our teacher taught us probably 25% of the material needed to complete this task so my partner and I went online, went through a four part tutorial on how to make a Snake Game using Microsoft Visual Basic (VB).

We followed the tutorial, went through with it and submitted it. Our teacher submitted it to our Dean and we are meeting with him Tuesday. Is there any way out of this? We got a zero for the assignment which means my partner and I are most likely going to fail the class. She's kinda freaking out. Any advice 420?

Here's the tutorial we used in order to learn how to do the game -

>I also have to do a VBA assignment and we actually are encouraged to find stuff online and use it.

There's a huge difference between:
  • incorporating other's code as a separate module in a clearly documented, clearly referenced, clearly isolated manner where your code wrap around other's code, versus
  • trying to pass off other's code as your own.
Besides, if and when they tell you that you can use something, then they will also include the correct manner to utilize that something to not be counted as plagiarism. If it hasn't explicit tell you how to include something safely, then you should assume you can't use that something just to be on the safe side.

>If your assingment doesn`t explicitly forbid using something like a tutorial your teacher won`t have shit. Just say you didn`t know and hope for the best.

Professor "won't have shit" usually will not matter to universities, since students are always presumed guilty until proven innocent. Many professors will try to lower their workload by getting their auto checks software to maximize the potential to flag any student's work as "plagiarism". If you happen to get of those professor, then it's the student's job to preempt them by properly documenting their coding process and design process. This may includes having good version control of the coding environment to show clear progression in any changes of the code, and having screen capture video recordings of the entire coding process. Universities will still get paid whether students successfully overturn any plagiarism charge or not. Professors won't lose their job if they falsely accused students of plagiarism, and any reputation risk they might suffer has been offset to the auto-checking code-matching engines.

i hate to agree with him, but, in the modern educational system (including but not limited to the public school systems), if someone in Authority so much as even whispers an accusation of this or that about you to the right ears, youre pretty much fucked, weather or not you copied/plagiarized so much as even a sentence of code from elsewhere, or did some other sort of no-no.

worst case scenario, imo, is you have to take your licks with a coke and a smile and shutting the fuck up about coincidental injustice, and try again either next semester, or wait 4 years and get into the next crop-rotation of students, or you could drop out of college (more or less) and strive for a purely educational purpose and just learn the stuff to know it, and forget any pretense of college credits or Goodly and Proper Documentation/Certification of skills-building for employment enrichment.

A comparison can be made to nuclear technologies. The U.S. government invested more than 25 billion before the first commercial plants were produced. Since then they've gotten more improved.

Nuclear is even more alluring because wind turbines have fundamental issues that prevent them from enhancing efficiency that are well researched. Only reduction in cost is from reducing the material cost, or reducing losses in storage or transfer, which aren't likely to substantially reduce (though storage may come down because of the companionship with solar futures).

Nuclear has thermodynamic limits, but it is incredibly potent as-is, and a slight improvement in materials can lead to a dramatic improvement in power output (say if the operating temperature can be bumped from 100C to 200C, the efficiency goes from like 30-40% to 50% or higher)

Yo, I'm making a MIDI sequencer using an arduino mega. As standard it's got 16 analog inputs. However, the sequencer I'm making has 16 steps, and I want each to have it's own frequency knob as well as velocity knob, and there may be a couple more needed elsewhere on the controller, so I'm looking at 32+ analog ins.
I've seen I could get a multiplexer to increase inputs, but from what I understand I'd have to first select the knob I wanted to control and only then the value would be read. Whereas what I want is for the changes to be instantaneous, so I could change several knobs at the same time without having to select them. Anyone got any advice on this? I'm stumped.
Albert Mommlelet - Sun, 15 Mar 2015 19:40:27 EST ID:JFQ3oC7N No.6659 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Let's say the arduino did have more analog inputs. Say 32 or 64. You could connect all your inputs simultaneously, but think about your code: you've still got to read an input, do an action, go to the next input, and so on, so it's never truly instantaneous. You're going through a loop, and hitting every input along the way. Maybe the loop executes 100 times per second, so there's a .01 sec delay, at most, from your knobs. If it happens that you have to multiplex your inputs, this may add, say 1ms on top of whatever else is going on. It won't be instant, but for all intents and purposes, you'll likely not notice the time delay.

If you find that you need something truly simultaneous, the arduino probably will not do. Why? Because it works sequentially. It can look at an input, do something, and then do the next thing. A musical instrument, of course, can multitask: all the strings on a harp can vibrate independent of one another. If you find that you absolutely need this type of processing, the arduino may limit you. First, it is fast, but not breathtakingly so, and second, because it cannot process inputs in parallel.

There are two types of chips, called DSPs and FPGAs, which are more suited to high speed processing of many inputs. They are very different to program than the arduino, but they do find use in high-end audio applications.

That being said, I think the arduino, plus a multiplexer, will be more capable than you're inclined to believe, for sequencing MIDI. Multiplexers can work extremely quickly, and interface readily with the arduino.

Simply group the potentiometers into groups of 16s and switch their supply voltage/ground voltage pins between +5V/0V and floating respectively.
All it should take is one npn and one pnp transistor per pair and a gpio pin.

Cell phones are massively complicated systems with lots of moving parts, to break it down into "lay man's terms" is a bit more complicated than coming in here and feeling entitled to get a helpful answer from a bunch of strangers on the internet about a question that was too vague to be answered in the first place.

I prefer the Casio 9750GII (NOT THE PLUS EDITION, IT'S SHIT)

Godspeed fellow engineer

I'm currently in a course covering Mastercam. My book (X7 version) came with an educational version of the program but unfortunately it can only save in a gimped file type (.emcx-7 instead of .mcx-7). I would like to be able to work on things at home to bring into class and post the file there. However, not only am I unsure whether a legit copy of Mastercam can open the student file, but as we are learning on X6 in class it wouldn't be able to regardless.

Would anybody happen to know possible workarounds to this? I opened up a normal .mcx-7 in my student version and tried to trick it with auto-save/backup but that didn't work of course.

I do actually have a cracked version of X6 on my broken laptop; its screen and GPU are busted up but I can connect an external VGA monitor. I figure it would be possible to use that in some sort of conversion pathway. I am too worried to try, though, because I am not sure if there would be some type of 'pirate' residue left inside the file that would be detected on my class computer which is legit with HASP key, etc. Not only do I want to keep myself out of trouble but my school and instructors as well.

I figure I'm pretty stuck as is but thought I would ask anyways.

Also, from my little experience with the program it does seem to have many decent abilities and potential but at the same time there are a whole bunch of seemingly simple things that are buggy as shit. Overall it seems pretty unrefined even if it has whatever capabilities, but that's just my opinion. Anybody else have experience with/opinions on Mastercam?

Maybe resources to help me be awesome at CAM too.
