Critical Toy, work in progress, second attempt.

Model was reduced in scale be a fraction, from 3.5” in the x dimension to 3.25”. The y and z dimensions were scaled proportionately.

Work piece (block of Freeman jewelers’ wax) was moved +1 cm in the x and y from the origin. Last time I had tried to put the work piece on the origin, with poor results. The device insists on a 0.129” margin around the work piece. I don’t know why.

This is the result after both the draft and finish passes. Altogether this took two and a half hours, including the time to perform “surfacing” or planing.

I saved the parameters so that I can plane the results of the first attempt and mate it with this one to see if the pegs match the diameters of the holes, or if they will need manual finishing with a dremel.

Next step would be to create channels for sprue.

Critical Toy work in progress. Still have to learn how to align the “work piece” (the stock, the material) with the device and the driver software. High temperature wax, machined on Modela MDX-20.

May 6

The driver software is now loaded for the MD-20. Here it is rendering an animation of a virtualized tool path. The model was originally created in TinkerCAD, which is sadly shutting down. I still have to: make sure that the computer can actually talk to the mill; get millable material; start cutting.

I thought that this one was supposed to be a mold, with the void in the shape of the doll.

Argument fragment… work in progress

There is a kind of Algorithmic Break, or Algorithmic Turn in the cultures of developed nations. It is most evident and visible for those born in the 1050s and 1960s, and is signaled by the VCRs flashing 12:00, perpetually, in the homes of a consuming public. On one side of the break was a set of people who could not recognize how difficult it would be, for the uninitiated, to grok — to understand — the performative logic of a toggled human-to-computer interface, much less the ritualized gestures needed to set the VCR clock to the correct local time. All this as a necessary pre-condition to program the device to capture a show that aired at time inconvenient to the viewer. On the other side of the break were a majority of citizens who were puzzled and frustrated by the alien demands of what should have been a very simple and familiar task, that of setting a clock. This majority may not have seen — or enjoyed — the abstract logic of geometric proofs in their schools. They may not have seen or mastered the multi-stepped instructions needed to set the new-fangled digital watches that were all the rage. This majority was certainly not exposed to computer programming in schools…

[GUIs and contemporary DVRs have paved over this turn, but the foundation is unstable. This turn is largely invisible for a younger public (I think).]
