I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time: create the simplest possible genetic fractal based on a binary string. Let me explain. The nice looking fractals I post here and elsewhere are all driven by a genetic sequence. This goes something like: bend to the left by so much
After 9 nine months of building the Genetic CNC router in 3 generations, I have finally produced the first non-test cut. A couple of speakers for my workshop to enjoy Spotify when the CNC router isn’t destroying my ears.
Yes, you read that right: V1.0! Since my first prototype back in December 2015 which moved a dremel along the XYZ directions but had a resolution of
When I started this CNC project, I thought it would be a lot easier than it turned out to be. This is known as the Dunning-Kruger effect. This is a chronic ailment for me – I will head into any subject,
I have been developing the theory and implementation of “genetic fractals” since 2010 and have often wondered what the next big step would be. You may not be familiar with genetic fractals, so here is a short definition:
Following the CNC bootstrap, which was an unqualified fail, I was left with the choice to abandon this venture and save up the 1000 USD++ cash to buy a kit in China or else try and address the failings. As you will surmise from the image above, I opted for the latter.
While some folks like engage in exercising their digestive system over the end of year celebrations, genetic fractals likes to line up a project that will provide ample excuse to get away from the in-laws that descend on my house at this time.
