Updates 05/29/23

I’ve been busy busy busy with my general life, and realize I haven’t updated in a while. Here’s some updates on things since my last post:

I’ve been working on getting sign-offs at the local makerspace. Here’s what I’ve gotten through so far:

  • Laser Cutters
  • FDM Printers (I’ve been using my own for years, but you still have to get the signoffs from the facility.
  • Blacksmithing Safety
  • Woodworking shop yellow tools
  • Mixed Media

Upcoming class:

  • Metalshop Safety

Entry 8

Distribute useful items you find to where they will do the party the most good. Enhance strengths and/or cover weaknesses.

We gave Wilhelm the boots of soft landings. Now his frequent falls have gone from being a source of concern to a source of comedy.

Entry 7

Don’t let your loot be your death. Carry only what you can move with. Bulky and/or heavy items need to be easy to drop or remove.

Stu, quit tying stuff to yourself with tight knots, or we might not be able to pull you up when you stumble off a cliff again.

Back to tinkering

Things have been really busy the past few months, but I’m finally getting back to working on the 3D printer.

I’ve been splicing various premade models designed for previous generations of the Monoprice Select Mini into one that allows for a better hotend fan and a part cooling fan.

Next up is properly setting up the wiring, manual switch, and integrating it into the wire bundle for the hot-end. Then recalibration.
