So, although i am meant to be working at the moment, the work load is non existant, so i thought i would have a search online for animatronic/model makeing companies who might be able to assist me with futur
well i must say, i have been so much working on the pcb maker for the makerbot and writing a new wiki entry for the makerbot site – to be posted live soon, i havnt updated this much.
so yeah, thats it.
I was wanting to note a few more projects i want to have a go at –
This is Stephanie, an avatar room controller which works using voice commands.
This is something i have wanted to do for many years, and is partially why i got the makerbot in the first place. – to build parts to make an animated face that you could interact with and control stuff using iobridge.
there are others which i will blog about, but for now im off to make a simple eagle pcb to make on my makerbot.
Just to remind me to writew a small section explaining why a nut is essential.
For those curious for now until a few hours later today till i write it, this is wehat that 4p nut on the brass barrel stops…
jUST FOUND MY MEMORY STICK AFTER ABOUT A MONTH, – i left it at work, and found my original ‘plastic forcing its way out of the ptfe/heater barrel – hence the need for the nut!
you can just see the white of the melted abs poking out of the central hole of the main washer – the second ‘bent’ washer was to stop the barrel from being forced out.
as it says!
long live nats nonsenSe
yeah if you have not realised, my spelling has been poor- but i need new batteries for my keyboard.
and nats nonsence is spelt incorrectly… it should be nats nonsense… rats…
just got an email from dhl saying a delivery from MegaUK has been marked as delivered, am off home now (via the chinese take away – it was my birthday last saturday, and i fancy cel;ebrtating again with some chinese!) so home now and see what makerbot can do with proper router bits!
second test, setting build platform level with masking tape, and using another snapped drill bit as the router, i changed a few settings in eagle to produce this design, based upon the eagle tutorials by (insert name here) on youtube.
my keyboaris playingup so i going to stop here.
also my engraving router bits from mega uk have not come yet so i will try agaiin tomorow
10 X10 cm PCB board cut ready for makerbot PCB testing, originally uploaded by Roboteernat.
Just got some 10×10 PCB boards made u[p to put into makerbot. i need to drill the corner fixing holes but as they were not exactly lined up, i need to do this at home.
Some are double sided, and although it is a bit of a waste using this much for tests, i do have a fair bit of UV photoresist board and i got these boards from ebay at like £2.50 a board (200mm x 300mm double sided) so i think its ok.
i also have som smaller bits i can use.
I ordered 2 of each v cutter drill bits – 10,20,30,45 and 60 degrees, routers are to arrive today!
wouldnt it be fab that a makerbot can ‘make’ its motherboard as well as parts!
