April 23, 2018 : Beads of Courage


Sammy's Beads of Courage. A few beads shy of 1,900 beads. Representing his 541 day fight with brain cancer. From walking into the ER on October 19th, 2016 to his last earthly breath on April 12th, 2018. Each bead has meaning. Each bead stands for a part of his journey. Each holds significance. These are his Beads of Courage.
253 yellow beads, one for every night in the hospital.
44 light green beads, representing the 44 scans done.
47 red beads, one for each blood transfusion.
60 white beads, standing for each dose of chemotherapy given.
453 rainbow beads, one for each therapy session accomplished.
114 black beads, each one a stick, a poke that Sammy endured.
So many moments of COURAGE. Nearly 1,900 moments. Roughly 61 feet of beads, from end to end. Weighing 6 pounds.
My Sammy was brave, courageous and strong till his very last breath and last beat of his heart. I am so proud of him. And so joyful he is now dancing free in heaven. Free of the weight of what these beads represent.

  2. The application of 3D printing for the representation of architectural assets has many challenges. In 2018, the construction of Iran National Bank was traditionally surveyed and modelled in pc graphics software and was optimised for 3D printing. The staff tested the technique for the construction of the part and it was successful. After testing the process, the modellers reconstructed the construction in Cinema4D and exported the front {part of|a part of} the model to Netfabb. The entrance of the constructing was chosen end result of} 3D printing limitations and the finances of the project for producing the maquette. In 2021, Parsinejad et al. comprehensively compared the hand surveying technique for 3D reconstruction ready for 3D printing with Cigarette Rolling Machines digital recording .
