Neat idea. It dawned on me that you could increase resolution by swiping across your original swipes at their half way marks. I could not see the rubber bands in the picture and was having a hard time trying to figure out how you kept pressure on the blades. Very Cool. :)

Instructions

This is a dangerous Fluxus-looking thing, and it needs taming. Taming in progress.

Having said that, abandon hope all ye who proceed!

  1. Print the one for the machine you have. <b>Cupcake</b>

    • subpixel-3-blades-cupcake.stl - <i>creates a 2 x 2 grid</i> <b>Thing-O-Matic</b>
    • subpixel-4-blades-t-o-m.stl - <i>creates a 3 x 3 grid</i> <b>Replicator</b>
    • subpixel-6-blades-replicator.stl - <i>creates a 5 x 5 grid</i>
    • subpixel-9-blades-replicator-vertical.stl - <i>creates a 8 x 8 grid</i> (challenging to print!)
  2. Secure each blade against the pin using a rubber band inserted into the side slots.

  3. Upgrade an advertisement with a subpixel grid using horizontal and vertical swipes. Remove one or more squares from the grid to create or advertise the upgrade.
