3D Printing and Thermal Cameras (plus who won the game)

So here’s a thing I’m super excited about: my deeper dive group is in 3D Printing. For those of you following along at home, our deeper dive is a project that we get to do where we get to actually decide what we’re doing, as apposed to being told what to learn about or do. I was assigned to the 3D printing group which was the one I really really wanted to do. I love learning about additive manufacturing and I’m having so much fun thinking of different things I could do once I learn how to print well. As previously mentioned, it’s something I’ve been interested in for a while. Anyway I’ve got a ton of ideas of things I can do for that.

On a related note, I got to play with a thermal imaging camera today. I’ve never actually used one before so that was really fun! I took a few videos and pictures. I don’t know exactly what I expected from a thermal camera but it definitely was more fun than I thought it would be.

I am aware of how derpy I look in the photo. Idk what to say I hadn’t really figured out how to calibrate the lines to the thermal, plus well the face I was making didn’t help.

Now for the part you’ve all been waiting for so patiently (note: this is to be read sarcastically): Who guessed the lie? And the winner is: Nadya! Congrats. Here’s a refresh on the statements along with if they’re true or not.

  1. My favorite color is orange. This is true. Has been since like 5th grade.
  2. I was the first girl born into my father’s family in 144 years. Also true! Tracing back to before the American Civil War, there are no women in my dad’s family that didn’t marry into the family. All the children born were boys for generation after generation, until me.
  3. I wear mismatched socks everyday. Yep, this is true! started in 4th grade, Mom thought it was a phase. I have yet to get over the phase.
  4. I’ve attended 4 colleges as a student, a total of 5 different times (this is to say 4 schools and one of them twice). True. I went to CCH for film school, then FBBC study Biblical Worldviews, then DMACC to get EMT training, then Oxford University for art history, then back to DMACC for an associates that will fold into the bachelors in pre-medical illustration that I’m hoping to get.
  5. When I was in 8th grade, I wanted to be a medical examiner until I realized how smelly morgues are. I was a weirdo, and this is true.
  6. I have 5 left handed siblings. This one seems more shocking than it really is, but it’s true! I have two younger sisters, both lefthanded, two younger brothers, also left handed, and one older brother who is also left handed. Conversely, I’m right handed.
  7. My favorite numbers are 7, 21, 27, and 47. True, but honestly there’s not much to say about it. They’re just good numbers.
  8. I am older than Google by less than a week. This is false. Google is older than me. Just barely! in fact, according to my mother, I was due to be born the day BEFORE google, but I guess I decided to cook a little longer.
  9. I HATE cilantro. (aka coriander) True. it’s nasty. Tastes like someone poured dish soap on raw onions and then presented it as a meal. Don’t know why people like it so much
  10. I have every word to the 2005 movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice memorized to the point that given silence and two hours, I can play the entire movie in my head like I am a DVD or streaming service. This is true. I’ve done it three times. The first on a random day just to see if I could, and the other two times on a transatlantic flight after finishing the books I packed.

Anyway. That was fun! thanks for playing! talk later.
