  1. Salutations DynaVap (VC) & IH-driven DiY enthousiasts!! , Recently i happened to comment various topics which i'd illustrate as follows, essentially: Now lets make an effort to stimulate the imaginations of a DynaVap-focussed audience, eventually. For starters i'd suggest starting with my conclusion linking metal susceptor mass to its elevation of temperature, while considering specific heat capacity to be practically constant over the range of application (hopefully)... If you're a "1-Hitter" who expects a single 20 mg toke from a single temporarily-stored IH-driven "Heat Charge" then perhaps you may also accept that the hard fact that DynaVap's present VapCap alone just weights too much already when compared to my ¾g 17-Holes Metal Disc, at least 5-fold using a 500+ Watts IH driver if delays are to remain compatible with the sort of "Micro-Bursting" i get access to myself, thanks to the power of fire as well. The juxtaposition of Silicon Carbide foam and fire is patented intellectual property owned by Dan Steinberg (VaporGenie's inventor), but i yet have to find references which legally forbid IH-driven scenarios based on electromagnetic power injection combining SiC foam technology in absence of fire, precisely. So, it seems to me this idea is worth a direct response to a basic question: how much does the DynaVap Circumferential Compression Diffuser Screen weight exactly? And even better yet, what's the VapCap internal metal contact-surface area actually converting temporarily-stored energy from conductive/radiative vectors to a more convenient re-balanced mix of convective, radiative and conductive factors interacting in a context of delayed heat transfers and other transitional events that i find puzzling enough to recourse to a DiY challenge (read invitation rather than ultimatum!)... Pardon me if i must sound crude but i'd investigate radical transformations centered on the helix path inside a VapCap if that needs to remain the main source of temporarily-stored energy, which implies cutting the rest of its metal handle, if not trimming a VapCap's mass down by removing wasted contact-surface somehow... Honestly i feel challenged myself all the sudden, not to mention it would cause the loss of DynaVap's most desirable feature under the circumstances: its audible clicks! But then i'd respectfully point out that a custom-designed IH driver may as well "scan" the susceptor during some "calibration phase" with the purpose to adjust IH power injection in such way to match the Heat Charge to its final cannabis Workload. It turns out DynaVap can certainly attempt to selectect Curie-effect alloys to enhance the electro-magnetic scanner process relatively to temperature - which is the point where to connect with my last (formula) picture. Briefly put it's an exceptional opportunity ignored for no fair motives. So, honestly, if i were as much an enthousiast DynaVap VapCap owner than i'm a Customized VaporGenie Micro-Bursting user then i'd suddenly feel an ugent need to verify what the weight of my CCD Screen inside. If lucky it's near to 0.75 grams and i've gained sufficient perspective to strongly insist that DV CCD Screens get evaluated in a context where Loto Labs (Evoke/Lux) AND Dr. Dabber (Switch) flatly failed in terms of Dry Herb, so far... No doubt the DV CCD Screen can be inserted pretty much the same as i do with my 17-Holes Metal Disc inside the Hybrid Core - and then lets also consider a single IH driver coil may as well manage with 2!... That's where the fun becomes obvious at last, once the trained eye knows where to look: e.g. a single cannabic bowl can undergo pulse-heating from both sides and inflict the convective heat vector a change of 90 degrees while it serves as a Release/Transport Agent, releasing noble goodies through "The Shortest Path of Lesser Transformation" effectively. You can't do that with a genuine DV VC as sold, yet in all fairness i'll admit it's not specifically designed to get IH-driven neither. Who knows, perhaps if users stare long enough they'll realize too that it's actually been done before, just not yet. Good day, have fun!!
  2. From the album "Plan-B" (Bi-Energy IH compatible) Prototyping Platform

    Dated 2019-Apr-13. Universal coaxial/bidirectional Screw mating system supporting both spherical and cylindrical tops interchangeably now demonstrated. 2-Fingers/2-hands Core-PinHole + Vortex-Cavity control verified to be fun!
  3. From the album "Plan-B" (Bi-Energy IH compatible) Prototyping Platform

    Dated 2019-Apr-11. Details of the 2 complementary/separate internal PH paths, about how their directions align and mate at some single point inside its wood handle...
  4. Salutations, It felt appropriate to launch a dedicated thread to evoke this topic as announced, little conceptual abstraction effort is required to fill the gaps. Here's my proposal to solve an old apparent dilemma opposing inert/pure glass vs hot metal altering aroma/taste, just imagine some coaxial set of glass tubes being integrated to such simple KISS-inspired idea: Sorry if i won't be able to provide a full 3D drawing, envision an SiC Foam pellet contained inside a clear glass tube transparent to heat, itself surrounded by a ring-shaped Curie-alloy susceptor, all of it inserted inside a larger glass tube... The consequences?? Your internal glass tube which now actually corresponds exclusively to the lungs/cannabic path shall contain ZERO metal as it is separated by an air-tight glass barrier from the susceptor ring. So far so good. M'well, there's going to be Silicon Carbide though it's just as chemically-inert i think. As for the metal screen i'm not too confident i'd need it, but i like that hot Top-of-Bowl screens apparently got a tendency to stay clean, so it's to be considered optional. At least this will simplify what's coming next: Power Injection. I'm afraid the presence of a glass layer between such tubular susceptor and its SiC Foam target implies significantly increased delays and losses, yet this doesn't defeat the idea of storing heat THROUGH that same glass: after all heat can also be carried by near-invisible radiation, hence passing the barrier practically at the speed of light - which translates as no delay compared to conduction in glass... Too bad the received energy won't transform instantaneously, but i'm most confident using sufficient Pre-Heating time and IH Power can "inject" a fair amount of temporarily-stored energy, long enough to allow matching it to its WorkLoad during a final inhalation phase. While soaking a bowl with heat only requires its associated Release/Trasport Agent to displace from the SiC-contained air pockets right nearby. In addition lets mention the bowl is expected to be made of glass or ceramic, in order to preserve "purity" of the path, evidently!... The trick i believe might be to adjust the size of that SiC Foam pellet so it only contains the required Heat Charge (or "Q"), as a function of a bowl's capacity. Curie alloys would be most desirable but i suppose other metals are also suitable if "scanned" to help evaluate a safety operation temperature: power injection cycles can be stolen to reduce IH output anyway. Presence of a continuous magnetic field (from some electro-magnet or a natural magnet) would open the door to audio/ultrasonic applications IMO. An other hypothesis of mine would be that air-shaking during the IH Power Injection phase might cause a gain of speed, in a "Micro-Bursting" context where more brief + more dense promotes aroma/taste appreciation a great deal. In conclusion i submit that it may be worth having an energy budget where parasitic losses get redirected for more useful purposes, this ALL-GLASS concept conversion for example. M'well, of course YMMV and it's still missing Inlet Water, but at least that's rational and potentially beneficial all at once! Good day, have fun!!
  5. It's been done before, just not yet!...

    It's about my late Minion-look customization of yet another VaporGenie pipe. This time even a genuine VG core requiring NO SiC cut shall work for the masses where it used to require skilled operators before... Now the Hybrid Core concept which i tagged LAVA ain't necessary any longer: i managed to use the pipe sucessfully myself, thanks to a direct permanent Core-PinHole, though it's also been quite possible to adapt it adding little more than some short length of plastic tube to seal and couple separate paths together. Here's an alternate source to view more: [ https:// i.postimg.cc/8z5ZBwwR/Egzoset-s-6th-Year-Edition-of-Cust-VG-Pipe-Gi-F-Anim-2019-Mar.gif ]

    Experiment dated 2019-Mar-7. Confinement around Screw-Base axis can link main Core-PinHole to convenient manual control-finger location: e.g. either index for Bronze Sherlock or thumb for Classic types.
  7. From the album "Plan-B" (Bi-Energy IH compatible) Prototyping Platform

    Dated 2019-Mar-5. This internal PinHole path approximately coincides with my Hybrid Core's boundary between its Metal Disc and Top-of-Bowl SiC Puck... DO NOT CUT it, just drill instead!
  8. From the album "Plan-B" (Bi-Energy IH compatible) Prototyping Platform

    This is the horizontal half of an On-Top/direct internal PinHole path. DO NOT CUT the associated Monobloc annular feature, only its Screw-Base.
  9. From the album "Plan-B" (Bi-Energy IH compatible) Prototyping Platform

    Dated 2019-Feb-27. N. B.: DO NOT CUT annular feature of VG Monobloc. Instead relocate half of the internal PinHole path to its corresponding Bowl counterpart... Leave marks to ease alignment!
