My first successful cuts with the MPCNC. I’ll make a video soon explaining all about how I built it. https://youtu.be/E6KaPQ6VhcU
Today was my last day at Narrative and true to form I was deploying to production right up to the last minute. What a great team. I’ll miss them. Also, you can have my old job if you want. You’d be great. I believe in you. https://narrative.so/careers/lead-services-engineer
One of my favourite things about 3d printing is bringing things back to life that would otherwise be rubbish. I got this “broken” tripod at our local recycle shop missing its quick release. 10 minutes with callipers and CAD and I have a working “GoPro style” mount. #reuse
It’s easy to get stuck in the mindset that #foss users are just entitled jerks who want shit for free - and sometimes they are - but every now and then I have an interaction with a maintainer or a user which redeems my faith in humanity. That’s a pretty big lift, NGL.
It is proven! I am jimsy on Keybase: https://keybase.io/jimsy/sigchain#f041b4c79cc8922592d7dea53f456e948a33f2e54c69ad5f608aef65ed7634c20f
#RightToRepair will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.
So over the last week I've been working on [µCNC](https://github.com/Paciente8159/uCNC/) including a relay-control spindle tool. Here's a video of it in action:
my lastest project has been an #mpcnc which has taken me several weeks to build. I particularly enjoyed building the electronics box, which allowed me to do some #soldering, #iot and some #woodwork. The best part is that it's almost 100% made out of stuff I had lying around. Even the table is made out of reclaimed wood. Total spend maybe NZ$250.
