so hi, havent logged in a while because I was busy with school and some very important school exams that counted towards high school admission, passed everything and kinda took a break from everything this summer. Didn't work on any projects this summer, however I did get a new pc(I7 10700kf, gtx 1650, 16gb ddr 3 2933mhz and some m.2 500gb from samsung, very pleased with how it turned out), a new phone since i was able to get it for half the price and my old one was kinda dying on me(it's a s20fe and I love it). Need to catch up on everything that is happening since I missed quite a few things from what I can see
(the random photo of the moon was made using my phone)
Finished my 6000mAh PD3.0 Power bank. It has 3 outputs(2 usb A and 1 usb C, both with PD) and 3 inputs(usb type C, micro usb and lightning for charging. The cells are taken out of another power bank but I swapped out the charging pcb to add PD3.0 to it. Working great so far!
after a lot of work, finally finished my diy phone, this time also having a camera. Here are some pictures I took with it. It was a total nightmare to close everything up but in the end I was able to. Very happy that everything is screwed in, no glue used at all! And everything is held in using brackets.
Screenshot that I took in fusion360 from the phone project, for some reason I love it so much
Finished my phone, almost. The camera needs to arrive but it's going to take a month or two and I still need to get a battery for it.
The joys of 3D printing, if you get it wrong the first time, print another one. The phone should be finished tomorrow(without the camera since it will take a month or two for it to arrive)
Played around with blue transparent PETG filament and learned a few things. That ironing the last layer is sooooo nice, it feels like glass, so smooth and that colored transparent filaments might not be the best to print "clear" stuff but it has such a nice shine to it. Defiantly going to print the phone with this stuff. Also because this is a 20x20mm cube, you can't expect much opacity with colored clear filament.
A phone I am working on, the hardware is mostly done, waiting for the camera module to arrive. It's using an orange pi 3G board, running Android. It's the second time I am making the case for the phone, but this time I am adding a camera to it and making the case nicer in general(thinner, using brackets to hold in the parts instead of glue and using as many screws as possible).
