Nuclear Fuel Cell

While Kathy was working on some top-secret project involving a giant robot I decided to tear apart an old laser printer that was in the junk pile at the shop. Inside I found a wonderfully green drum, which I thought would make a nice “Nuclear Fuel Cell” prop. Of course it needed some vinyl added to it…

I used Inkscape to design my labels. I prefer to use Inkscape to design things, then export a DXF and import that into the Silhouette software. If you design things in the Silhouette software (at least the free version) you can’t export it for use elsewhere.

Oddly enough, the circle part of the radiation symbol got lost. (It’s on the back, so you can’t see it in the photo above.) By the time I noticed it was too late to redo it because I wanted to crank this out in fast.

Anyway, if you stop by Maker Faire Milwaukee on September 26th & 27th, 2015 at State Fair Park, you might just see this Nuclear Fuel Cell in action…
