Shadows of the patterns?

08-03-2018 12:10 PM by FancyChip | 1 comment »

Everything on our earth has its own shadow, and it, its forms, depends on both the angle of the sun’s fall and the cloudiness of the weather, and so on.

As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment.
