Re: pi



I'm sorry to say but I don't think those lines are printable. Each number is 9 lines tall. So if you're at the .0625" minimum line size, then each number is 0.5625" tall (possibly a smidge larger since if was really ~ 9.25 lines, but I'm giving the benefit of the doubt). Doing a simple copy and paste I found that your design is approximately 60 numbers tall.

The math would therefore dictate that your design is 60*.5625"=33.75" tall, which is beyond the maximum print size. So the only possibilities are that the lines are indeed 0.0625" which would make the design outside the printable area, or the design is indeed 20" tall, which would make the lines ~ 0.037" and thus too small.

It's possible I'm wrong, but these lines really do look like they're just too small.

I've posted the same question on the resub. I've calculated the design to be, at minimum, 33-34" tall.

Looks great! I Like it! Unfortunately it looks like this round is leaning towards dinosaurs and underwater creatures...
Good show none the less.

Re: One Small Step For A Man (v2)



amazing, amazing work!
I keep looking at all these designs and trying to figure out how in the world the artists did it, but yours takes the cake. I cannot imagine how long it took you to finish this. I may just have to dust off my Woot wallet if it prints

The cool thing about Purdue is that there have been 23 grads go on to be astronauts (the most of any non-military school - see here). One of my high school classmates, a friend of mine, went on to be a flight instructor for the Space Shuttle (she never got to go into space though), and she was a pilot in one of the planes that shuttled the last shuttle to the Smithsonian this past year.

If you're an astronaut nut, believe it or not, Indiana is one of the places to be!

I will say last week's Imaginary Restaurant was an exception. Very good ORIGINAL designs were chosen as winners. Woot needs more of those type Derbies and rid themselves of these leeches who draw the same crap every week.

I love that this is totally out of your usual theme Truffle, it's not my style but I'd love to buy one for my little nieces.

It's very majestic!

It vaugly resembles the Planet Express Logo from Futurama. Not sure if it will be an issue, but that's the image that (i think) you're thinking of.

I've seen stir-fried Bombyx pupae but not larvae (yet). They're probably quite tasty - rich in protein and oil. Used as a source of vitamin B during the war in Japan.

Re: Rocket



Also the old Interplay logo

and

the old Lego spaceman logo

Not claiming this design is any of those, but I knew something was poking at my brain. ;)

Re: One Line. One Horn.



Totally cool. My daughter would love this shirt, so would I. I've been waiting for a design that my daughter and I can get matching shirts to wear that she would like. Can I also suggest pajama pants with this design repeated all over the pants.

or they can just check the native file and see that the lines, as per the selection, are wider than 4.5pts.

Very nice, I just wish the ball of yarn was a little bigger and done to look more like a traditional yarn ball. Great work though.

really cool, I just hope the image will print ok. Maybe next time you do something like this allow for a little more space between the lines, it would add to the maze effect especially from a distance. Nice work though!

Re: One Small Step For A Man (v2)


1) lyonscc, this design (both versions) are brilliant. I strongly suspect one will print this weekend and it will be well-deserved.
2) I also suspect that numchucks9000 is someone's "evil twin" account (i.e., duplicate account to double-purchase randoms); whatever.
3) Gentle reminder: whether or not this prints, please remember to remove the hi-res version on Friday so that it can't be used to pirate your design.

Great shirt that is not only a marvel of technique, but captures a moment of deep emotion and tribute; it's a rare shirt that manages both, and you've just totally hit it out of the park with this one.

RIP A.A. Blanks (Obituary)

Did you actually have to change your design? If not and they wrongly decided that your lines were too small, that sucks! They should un-reject it.

Re: Endless Ocean



Spiritgreen wrote:My favorite designs this week are the ones that have clear aesthetic or conceptual reason behind using one line


You summed up my thoughts on it well, Spirit. Having the a single line be integral to the idea while making a wearable shirt was my motive for sticking to this concept. I think you managed it very effectively on both your designs this week.
If anyone is interested, this design was a reworking of an early one called Open Ocean. The way the single line ties to the subject was a good enough hook for me to revisit it and the results differ a lot. The line weight restriction creates a different aesthetic so I played with the shape of the design to get it flowing more naturally on the shirt.
