Nice Leo! If you were to facet the curves, it would look like angular metal plates fastened together to form the shape. Sweet!

Yes I do want it to look like metal plates - we will talk more about those facets

Leo  I was going to write you this morning to encourage you to join in the fun. I love what I see so far.

Jamie  AT LAST!  Judging from your 'rough' modelling you have upped the bar considerably from your first sign already. I suspect competition will be stiff.  Its a good thing for I have a bunch more surprises in store on my piece.  

I love how this mechanical fish 'competition' is shaping up. I hope a whole lot of other folks join in with their creative efforts. Jump right in for the water is fine!

Bit late but not bad, Jamie...

Ok, here is a quick update about the first parts of my fish. For a quick mock up and test drive I routet a first sample, seems it works great, even in Super-High-Speed-Mode! 
Paddles have to be revised, of course.











I strongly recommend to turn off your little LED-lights fishy's because the hunter is coming alive.

Stay tuned...

Upon first reading about the competition and lamenting about my lack of time to participate, I resigned myself to just watching and enjoying what folks come up with for their sign ideas. However, as often happens, I was unexpectedly deluged with a flood of ideas early yesterday morning during the first half of my wake-up elixer (coffee). Always equipped with a notebook and pen, I quickly scribbled down my first "mental picture". Unfortunately, I had other ideas/mind pictures later that day and am in a state of temporary indecision as to which one I like best. I'm sure many of you have faced this dilemma countless times!

Backstory Idea 1: Opening day had finally arrived. Six years ago, during a marine study expedition near the coast of Jamaica, Dr. Ferd's team discovered a sizable cache of gold and silver buried amongst the sunken wreckage of a several hundred-year-old royal Spanish vessel. That's what made Ferd's life-long dream of building the Institute possible. Funds were no longer a problem, and construction began within a few months after the discovery...to be continued... 

Backstory Idea 2: A race of super-intelligent cephalopods was discovered in a remote section of the Bermuda Triangle during one of Dr. Ferd's routine marine expeditions. Ferd and his team were astonished to witness how these creatures had pooled their intelligence to develop skills to heal a variety of marine creature injuries. Most interesting was how these cephalopods incorporated human-made mechanical debris found scattered along the seafloor, compiled from decades of Homo sapiens mishaps (the dunking of planes and ships in "The Triangle").  These super-cephalos had actually learned how to surgically replace missing fins, antennae, limbs and even partial bodies using the...to be continued...

Perhaps I'll find the time to make something after all. I have a 125 gal. tank that will be "Steampunked" after new carpet is installed. The Institute sign could be part of the overall theme, no problem. Now...to make up my mind which direction to go...

Michael,  Your wheels never stop turning.  I think the first idea will work better with the steam punk fish tank.

Hey Joachim, I love the paddle boots! What are all the other vectors for in the 2d vector window? I'm curious!

Been watching this ever since Dan, Jamie and Doug started it. I have ideas of my own but not the talent, but have been working at it though just for the fun and experience. Even if we don't participate is it wrong to have a favorite to route for already?

Hi Jamie, I am sorry for the confusion. 
 
A few vectors are for alternative versions and there are many further vectors on invisible layers because at my level of skills there are a lot of trials and errors to create things like this within Aspire. At this stage of learning I can't go straight to the design of my imagination. Next time I will clean up before posting. 
 
I hope to find the time for continuing this project next weekend because there is a lot of work in real life.

Great place here, thank you again.

Hi Guys,
Dan invited me to participate in this fishy escapade and I am starting to make some time for the project.

Our entry will be a deep sea Jellyfish that will be capable of reaching depths of 10 miles below the surface. As well as having the Institutes name on the vessel we have sold the naming rights to the Queen of England and our vessel will be named by royal decree HMS Klunk Punk.  

Construct materials have already been scavenged from the deepest corners of the workshop.
Steampunkedness will play a big part in the design with tendrals and propulsion tubes for stearing.
Not sure how we will generate power while submerged any suggestions welcome.

Two main features above deck will be a search light and a steam powerd harpoon gun as defence against the feared CRACKEN that lurks in the deep sea valleys below Atlantis.

Will see if I can post a sketch or two in the next few days.

Sweet! I didn't know if there was some hidden magic behind the mechanics, or if they were all design vectors!
