It was a nice ride!

MMORPH completed two full transformations at Uforge, from the Azure to the Meconozaurus to the Rook.

Many new cards acquired, two new Mecons added – not bad…

This amazing sculpture has been waiting for us on our way from New Jersey to Boston. Its half-circles are connected in an absolutely wonderful way!

For about twenty years we have been passing Hartford, and never stopped there. Well, we did this time, we went to a Bushnell Park and immediately found a perfect #Sphericon sculpture in the middle of a small Lily Pond.
Now I have no choice but make one of these on Shapeways as an addition to my ‘rollers’ collection.

Building a Uforge Mecon started with inner skin having Uforge cards in visible spots. When enough cards has been collected in the box at the gallery, the outer skin was added with the cards visible. Then the MMORPH was transformed into a rook shape.


Today I tried a simple tetrahedral arrangement of 12 Irwin Universal 880 Jack saws.
Saws proved to be the best – they bend as springs and hold the shape together well. Sleeves will be kept in place until I find a good way to connect without plastic bolts. Then the piece will have its final look.

Transformation finished!
The Rook assembly is in the window!

Things are becoming more and more clear. Nothing should be left to assumption. If you present an actual object and also photographs of it, the connection must be clearly defined by you. Nobody is responsible to figure that out.
The reception at Uforge went really well otherwise. The idea of the participation in the MMORPH project is getting some serious support.
