  • I had some fun with the Muse today. I discovered a living hinge generator website and made up a quick box.
  • I then worked on some more image engraving on the Muse.
  • I completed another CEIA Magnetometers Storage Pallet.
  • The Stacker 3D Printer is printing a K40 Laser Cutter Mirror Alignment Tool.
  • And another addition to the MakerCave Gallery…

  • Well, with the help of tech support, I isolated the issue with the Muse Laser Cutter and Engraver to a bad secondary power supply.
  • I continued working on the CEIA Magnetometers Storage Dollies. I decided to use eyebolts rather than D-rings because of space constraints with the new wheel boards.
  • I cut another pair of yokes with the Shapeoko.
  • I also started another print job on the Stacker.

  • I realized that we lost some detail in the initial print of the Mirror of Erised. I changed a setting in Simplify3D to allow single layer walls to be printed.
  • I also modified two illuminated Exit Signs for temporary canopy tent installations. I added a Edison tail for AC power and a switch to turn off the backup battery when not used.
  • I worked on the CEIA Magnetometer Storage Dollies. I redesigned the wheel board to be narrower and not include stacking storage yokes.
  • This required me to include a single battery storage box onto the Stacking Pallet.
  • Well, the Muse took a shit today. The touchscreen will not turn on and is blank. The machine is a dud. I noticed the issue beginning to rear it ugly head over the last couple of cutting sessions, but a power cycle seemed to resolve the issue. Now that doesn’t work…
