Where Ideas Come to Life
Today is one of those rare days when I have the opportunity to run all three of my fabricators at once: the Shapeoko, the Stacker and the Muse.
The Shapeoko cut another set of yokes for the CEIA Magnetometer Storage Dolly.
The Stacker is printing out a
filament dispenser for my Deltaprintr. The Muse is engraving a architectural drawing of some of the Portland Willamette River crossing bridges.
While waiting for the big three to finish, I sewed up a few more feed bags for Classy.
The feed bag design was inspired by sandwich bags. For durability, I used poly tarps with this simple layout.
I wired up this 12-volt LED flood light for one of my solar recharging stations.
Another addition to the MakerCave Gallery…
At home, I have a Deltaprintr 3D Printer I backed on Kickstarter. I found on Thingiverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1947239) a bracket to move the extruder assembly to the middle of the printer and reduce the length of the Bowden tube. Using the FSL Muse Laser Engraver, I cut out the brackets.
The latest addition to the MakerCave Gallery…
I brought Kazuki along, but he didn’t want to leave the truck.
I worked on a birthday “card” for a friend, using the FSL Muse.
I purchased Super Vectorize 2 for Mac to trace raster files into vector files.
I had my Wisconsin Union coffee cup for a long time.
Then I experimented with dithering on the Muse.
Started another addition to the MakerCave gallery…
Well, I lost a second shop light today and am forced to deal with it. I purchased (2) 400W Metal Halide Bulbs and replaced the bad bulbs. The climb up the extension ladder was a bit sketchy.
I completed Counter Supports for the Amphitheater. The counter in the Front Storage Room gave way and needs to be repaired. Tomorrow these get installed.
Before heading home, a quick cut on the FSL Muse…
I finished my third solar recharging station. This one uses a 30-watt solar panel with a 20 amp-hour battery.
Trying to clear projects from MakerCave…today I finished a CEIA Magnetometers Stacking Pallet.
McKenzie’s classmate’s, Gabe, birthday is tomorrow, so I made a “card” for him for her.
I then worked on my third solar recharging station.
A friend asked me to create a holder for the battery charger of his drone. With the help of the FSL Muse Laser Engraver and Cutter, here is what I came up with…
He seems happy with it.
I also cut pole mounting clamps for the next solar recharging station.
While waiting for cuts to complete, I loaded StarCraft Remastered on the MakerCave iMac.
And made a parking directional sign for the Amphitheater…
