Hi,   While waiting for the magnets and laser module to arrive, I thought to experiment a little bit with 3D printeded lithophanes.   I found on Thingiverse a lithophane of The Great Wave off Kanagawa made by utoudabi: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2497763   I printed it using white PETG. This is what I got:     Also found a great tool to generate lithophanes from images: http://3dp.rocks/lithophane/ The tool is open source, so I think we should be abl ...
Hi,   After some troubles, finally I got the Image Stylization / Style Transfer presented in the Blog #2 running on the Raspberry Pi.   The first challenge was to install Torch and TorchVision on the Raspberry Pi. Looks like the binaries are not built for the armv7l architecture, so simply running $ pip3 install torch torchvision does not works.   Instead, the Torch and TorchVision need to build from source. I found a great article describing how to do this for Torch: How t ...
Hi,   Today, I got progress on the software part of the project. I started searching for stylization / style transfer implementations and I found one that may be suitable for the Raspberry Pi.   Image stylization / style transfer is a process the can be described as "extracting the style" from an image and "applying it" to a second image. An example would be to take a painting (ex take Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night) and apply to a photo (Stanford campus): (example from the n ...
THE IDEA   I have some spare stepper motors and CNC parts, so I thought to build an AI powered Painting Machine using the Raspberry Pi.   The machine will work as follows: a source image / photo is providedthe RPi Cam could be also used to take a photo the image / photo is given to a AI algorithm to transform it to the style of a famous painter inspiration (source: Two Minute Papers) white paper: Chuan Li, Michael Wand - Combining Markov Random Fields and Convolutional Neural Netw ...
Hi,   In my first blog post, I mentioned that I have some CNC parts at home. When I started searching suitable CNC designs, I realized that building a CNC machine would be a little bit too time consuming.   So, I decided for the first iteration to go with modifying my Tevo Tarantula 3D printer:   On Thingiverse, I found this modular Magnetic X carriage designed by Banholm for the Tevo Tarantula: Along with some connectors, this will allow easy swapping of printing heads and othe ...
