LDJ Sheet Metal Engineering website live January 26th, 2010
The LDJ website went live last night. It’s a small website I designed and built for a sheet metal engineering company based in Middlesex. LDJ has a highly skilled workforce who manufacture a wide variety of products.
This was a follow up project to a site I designed and built last year for Middlesex Laser Cutting, one of LDJ’s partner companies.
Flash Actionscript 3 drawing app January 19th, 2010
Happy New Year and all that. Bit of a delay between posts there I know, I did say that I wouldn’t keep up the pace though. Here’s an AS3 sketching gadget I made a while ago, feel free to create some masterpieces, save them off and if you like you can send them to me – if they’re any good, i’ll publish them in a future entry.
Note: you’ll need to allow pop ups from this site before you can save your image. Annoying I know but i’ll sort out a fix when i get a minute.
To edit and use this you’ll need the ActionScript 3 Core Library as the JPEG creation utilises one of it’s classes. It also uses a bit of PHP on the back end, just to call the image saving dialogue so you can save the image to your PC. Most of the functions in this are pretty basic and it has a few faults – most notably the eraser doesn’t work on the text. You’ll need to clear the whole screen to get rid of it. If anyone has the time or inclination to fix it send me the new files and i’ll upload them here. Anyway the files are here so download them and go crazy!
