What is Blender: Definition and 17 Discussions

A blender (sometimes called a mixer or liquidiser in British English) is a kitchen and laboratory appliance used to mix, crush, purée or emulsify food and other substances. A stationary blender consists of a blender container with a rotating metal blade at the bottom, powered by an electric motor that is in the base. Some powerful models can also crush ice and other frozen foods. The newer immersion blender configuration has a motor on top connected by a shaft to a rotating blade at the bottom, which can be used with any container.

    Is My Blender Motor Viable for a Rotary Tool Shaft Mod?

    I got a new Ninja blender (model ss351) a few months back that was DOA. The manufacturer sent a replacement immediately, but I found a blog post on hackaday showing a simple mechanical mod that would enable me to use the motor to drive a flexible rotary tool shaft (Dremel etc). The attached...

    I Investigating a 3D Color Hue Phenomenon with Blender and Just Color Picker

    I have been doing some 3D computer graphics modelling and I have observed a phenomenon I cannot find anything about. I am using Blender (free 3D program). I am also using "Just Color Picker" which is a free Windows tool that let's you check the hue/saturation/value (HSV) for any color on your...

    I Blender Particle Photon Simulation (interesting results w soft bodies)

    (0:00 / 0:42) photon going light-speed blender simulation I have no idea how a mathematician would translate this example into an equation. Every time I've worked with soft bodies I seem to run short of mathematicians buddies. Regardless of the mathematics of continuous object deformation, this...

    New metal gear 3D model in Blender

    Hi, it's been a long time since I've been on these forums, but here is a new 3D blender model that I spent four weeks of daily work to finish. I'm glad it's done, it wasn't easy. This is metal gear RAY, a 70-foot tall robot from the popular video game franchise metal gear solid.

    Can I Use Blender to Create Weapon Models for Fallout 4?

    This is only the third thing that I've created in 3D modeling. If you played the PC video game Quake 2 back in 1998, then you might remember this. https://imgur.com/a/dqEqD

    Translate change of length to force in hanging chain problem

    I'm trying to write a simple script in blender python in order to show load deflection in cloth simulation. My question is: Is it possible to translate the change of length (distance between two nodes), into a force? (Newton between those nodes)? In addition you will find a minimal example. The...

    Shrunk and thrown into a blender

    Hi everybody, I encountered this question as an example of what a google applicant is asked: You are shrunk to the height of a 2p coin and thrown into a blender. Your mass is reduced so that your density is the same as usual. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? It is...

    Understanding Wattage of a Blender

    If a blender has a power of 800 watts, what does that mean? Doesn't the power output depend on the torque or speed of the motor, which depends on what you're blending? A motor that is spinning freely should have no power output (assume superconducting wires), because there is no torque in...

    Angular acceleration of a blender

    The blades in a blender rotate at a rate of 6100rpm. When the motor is turned off during operation, the blades slow to rest in 4.7s What is the angular acceleration as the blades slow down? f=6100rpm=366000rps dt=4.7s w=2(pi)f angular acceleration=dw/dt w=2(pi)3.66*10^5=2.3*10^6 rad/s...

    Angular acceleration of a blender

    Homework Statement The blades of a kitchen blender rotate counterclockwise at 2.2×10^4 rpm (revolutions per minute) at top speed. It takes the blender 2.1 seconds to reach this top speed after being turned on. What is the average angular acceleration of the blades? Homework Equations...

    Can High-Speed Blending Heat Up Water Due to Molecular Friction?

    a thought crossed my mind a few days ago. i wondered if you had water in an extremely high speed blender, would the friction between all the water molecules cause the water to heat up?..any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Tom
