      This is essentially how CMYK 4 color process printing works. Original image resolution, DPI, and angle of the dots play a major role. Your image has a moire pattern. To improve or eliminate that pattern use the following angles. 22.5 for Yellow (Y) 67.5 for Magenta (M) 7.5 for Cyan (C) 37.5 for Black (K) Maybe you explain this at some point in the video but I was too impatient for the results and skipped ahead. Nice job!

    That’s a really cool project… but my simple lizard brain was way more enamored by the kiwico lockbox. I might have to pick that up for my son. Congratulations on the successful move and the coming addition to your family.

  • Con

    Unbelievable how much maths, physics, and engineering knowledge this guy has. Never seen anyone so smart. The work ethic is unmatched too. Every video is so complex in every way from the planning, machining, software development and construction. There’s many things I’ve not said what this guy does in all his video and I love how it all comes together for something silly yet so much thought and effort has gone into it. Best channel on ITmores by far in my eyes.

    • Con

      @NPC lol. Thanks for the correction

    • NPC

      I think you meant physics but the idea of him having a bunch of psychics locked away somewhere to do his bidding entertains me more

    • tobiasha93

      It's also crazy that he is doing everything by himself. Even just one of the steps he does is already pretty impressive but he does all of them. I'm always amazed when he goes through his problem solving process and shows he is doing the manual work AND software development.

    K stands for Key. A key plate in printing is the plate that holds the most information, and therefore is used at 'main' plate. This is usually black, but it can sometimes be other colours.

    I am again utterly impressed. What impresses me the most is your absolutely insane pace with these projects - normally I would expect each of your projects to take at least 6 months, with 3 people and at least 10 update videos. Instead you release a completed project every month (okay, this time two months, but including a complete moving!!!) How do you manage to be so fast and efficient at it? Are you actually doing everything yourself or are you getting some help with stuff? In any case, its mindblowing.

    Ive been wanting to do a dumbed down version of this for wall sized engravings, like multi 8x4 sheets of mdf. Clearly a single 8x4 cut area mill would be ideal but I dont have that kind of horizontal real estate. For soft materials with shallow cuts I suspect a router mounted on your device with a basic z axis would work.

  • skuzlebut82

    I've watched this specific build, probably 5 times now. It's said that, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." I feel that that statement extends to art, as well. There are 'large' format printers. What you create is absolutely nothing less than an, 'Enormous format printer.' If you could, and I've no doubt you could, make the entire device more mobile, you could 'print,' pictures on the sides of most any structure. As it stands, to you, it's a tremendous project but it has the potential to be a very sought after service.

    The reason black is "K" in CMYK is that K actually stands for Key, which is actually any dark color. We usually use black because it is neutral but you can change it to basically any dark enough color and get different looks!

    • Timinator62

      The "K" is used because once the "Scientists" started looking at Light, Color and Vision they needed to label the Properties, RBG is for transmitted Colors, CMYK is Reflected Color (the B is already used so they chose K and also defined that it is the last Color Component...keeping with the Last Letter of the word theme. ) there's also another way to define Colors and that's LAB ( L*a*b* ) < this is actually how Photoshop calculates Color and then displays RGB to your Monitor and outputs CMYK to your Printer.

    The K in CMYK actually stands for “Key,” as in “Key Color” or “Key Plate,” and yes, black ink is typically used as the Key. Potassium is derived from the English "potash" or "pot ashes" because it is found in caustic potash (KOH). The symbol K derives from the Latin kalium via the Arabic qali for alkali.

      @Trucks Trees Toys very cool thank you 😊

    • Trucks Trees Toys
      Trucks Trees Toys

      @Bill Vigus In traditional color separations, the Key Plate is the plate that holds the most detail in the image, and the remaining plates (usually Cyan, Magenta & Yellow) are carefully keyed, or aligned, with the Key Plate (usually Black). This process of aligning the color separation plates to the Key Plate is known as Registration. To assist in this process, every plate will have a set of registration marks on it that must be aligned perfectly, or the resulting image will appear out of focus or blurry. When this happens, we'll often say that the image is “out of register.”

      It is a form of Epicureanism. (Epicureanism is a system of philosophy based on the teachings of Epicurus, founded around 307 B.C. It teaches that the greatest good is to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquillity, freedom from fear ("ataraxia") and absence from bodily pain ("aponia"). Therefore, if reaching your expectations causes you fear and pain, then lower your expectations in order to regain a state of tranquillity.
