I've been wondering if I could turn my haircut robot into a pumpkin carving robot. Cutting hair and carving pumpkins isn't really that different if you think about it - both cut stuff off a roughly pumpkin sized spheroid. In this video I do just that and carve some pretty amazing pumpkins with it. This was a bit of a sprint to get done - I can't wait until next year to make even more insane pumpkins with it!

You can use kinect azure to get depth image of your wife face. Then project depth image same way you project gray image on pumpkin. Depth values should control how deep carving tool goes into pumpkin. Even more, you can use kinect to scan pumpkin and get more details about surface.

I am sure you know most of this already, but I thought I'd put in some info I've learned over the years. If you want a cleaner cut on a soft material, it is probably a combination of several things. Cutter type, spindle speed, feed speed, and stepover/stepdown distance. You also need to follow cutting practices that allow for finer detail. For a soft material like pumpkin, you are going to want to use a 1 or 2 flute cutter. any more than that and you will just be clogging the flutes. This ends up with the cutter becoming more of a grinder and leaves rough edges. a single flute cutter would work great because it would basically clean itself. With every material, you need to find the correct spindle speed. This is determined in combination with cut depth, stepover distance, and cutter type. If you are dealing with pumpkins, you probably do not need to worry about cutter cooling, but other materials also need this taken into account. Feed rate is determined using a combination of cutter type, spindle speed, and cutter cooling. You then need to make sure you set your cut depth and stepover to match your cutter. Best practices for cutting soft materials tend to mean that you need to use more procedures and pathway strategies. Combinations of rough stock removal, then fine stock removal, finishing with fine detail and smoothing cuts. From what I've seen, you look to be following machining practices that are typical for machining metals. Those suffice for soft materials, but when dealing with organic materials, I suspect it would be better to follow practices meant for wood. This means taking into account the grain of the surface. Usually, I have found that spiral cutting instead of parallel cutting for the final smoothing cut leaves a much better surface image. It also minimizes cross-grain cutting, which is likely a major source of roughness on the final product. Using a round-ended cutter (ball cutter or round-tip V cutter) also helps smooth an image out. I have 10 years experience with commercial manufacturing of wood CNC parts. I've done quite a bit of experimentation with all of these factors. Hope this information helps!

@necaton I think the camera can recognize if the wall is the correct color, then you need to have it calculate the correct paint and flow rate. then you need to calculate the distance and spray angle. Then you need to build little paddles to control the overspray. Then you could let the machine go around and paint whole apartments and be a billionare XD but you need to send me 1 million :D

Can you transfer this into an tattoo robot that can make very high resolution tattoos with very precise depth inserts that can do similar effects to skin with pigments. The think that since tattooing has become common culture to the world and no longer a taboo. A way to get photo realistic tattoos without needing the world’s premiere artist to do it. If you can get a robot to do instead with more accurate and repetition that I don’t think any tattoo artist can do. Would be awesome to see your name on that patent.

They make a REALLY awesome program to map text and images for shrink sleeve printing, pretty much is a program that "knows?" How to distort an image to fit any shape bottle. I think the bottle needs scanned in a 3d scanner though? Anyway shrink sleeve printing is pretty neat it's part of my job! 😜

I agree, do not inhale any steel smoke, especially galvanized steel. I’ve done it before while sharpening knives, I felt so uncomfortable and i kept coughing, this was during quarantine so I had to hold in the coughs all day. I would never knowingly do that again. Although if you already have done that, I would suggest a very powerful humidifier, if you breath in the water vapor up close for a few weeks (I mean like next to your bed while you sleep) it should go away, after a month you’ll be fully recovered.
