Upgrading the Thing-O-Matic

I may be building a Prusa Mendel, my Makerbot Thing-O-Matic is working full time on my projects. I just received an Aluminum Build Surface for the Heated Build Platform. I installed it and calibrated the printer. I am very pleased with the results so far. I still have some tune-up to do to get good raft-less prints.

This event was held in the same location as the OHS, at the New York Hall of Science. 3D printers were all over the place! Of course there was the 3D printing village where Makerbot, Makergear, Ultimaker, Botmill and […]

Parametric Arduino Case

Parametric Arduino Case

When you make a project using an Arduino board, you often need a case to attach the Arduino onto your project. This small project is my first attempt to make such a case that can be adapted to all my projects.     To make it parametric I am using the OpenScad application. OpenScad is […]
