First, I need to make an apology to Darth Ryo. We spoke last summer about his status and putting him in the Consortium. We got him into the Armory but he got lost in the system and we never moved him up to the consortium.
Better late than never........
Please join us in welcoming Darth Ryo into the IRA Consortium.
In my almost ten years in the custom saber hobby, we've come a long way. Gone are the days of sliding foam and a piece of PVC into your hilts to hold your electronics. Enter the age of 3D printing and insane saber chassis.
I don't think anyone can disagree that Darth Ryo has taken the 3D chassis system to new heights. There's really no comparison to the shapeways options that go up against Darth Ryo's products. I'm anxiously awaiting my first purchase of a Darth Ryo shapeways chassis. I'm about to build sabers for my two sons and there's no doubt what chassis they'll get.
Darth Ryo, welcome to the Imperial Royal Arms Consortium. It's been long overdue and very much deserved. As are all of our Consortium members, you're a highly valued member and bring so much to the site. Thank you for your tireless work designing Shapeways parts. Thank you for all of your contributions to the IRA.

Congrats, Ced. Long overdue promotion to the IRA Consortium. But let's hope you don't let this "consortium" business go to your head, though. That way leads to the dark side... Next thing you know, we'll see you hosting a new show called "Pimp my Chassis"
Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
Except when nerf herding; then all bets are off...
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
