@linkai0i’m 3d printing gifts for friends before graduation! here’s a moving polar bear and seal thing :))
@Sean7+I picked up a like grid thing that you can snap together with poles to other of the grids. So I'm printing this tomorrow lol
@Sean7+I ordered the wrong bearings... so I just adjusted the 3D model to correct for it (because its cheaper to protype it then buy new bearings)@TheJasonPlayz0Hi everybody! This is gonna be my introduction to my scrapbook. The name's Jason! I love everything technology, from cybersecurity to 3D printing to coding. I hope I can share some really cool stuff with you guys in my hacker journey.
@ella0I CADded this pen holder mount for the Prusa Mini 3D printer and printed it. It uses a sliding mechanism with a rubber band for tension, and the pen is secured by 2 screws. I printed with black PLA at 2 times the default/stock speed because I learned that you can do that with PLA. It turned out quite well. You can’t print as fast with PETG because it takes longer to stick.

@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Didn't do much today but I did plan to calibrate my 3d printer further so that the case fits better than before. The picture is just everything I've printed for the project including the one failed case.
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50One of the cases came off the 3d printer but it has a lot of issues. It at least gives me an idea of what it might look like though.
@brianna0:winter-hardware-wonderland: whw day “4-5”: we missed a couple days since our 3d printer malfunctioned and we weren’t able to make much progress. but i thought an update would be nice so we assembled the majority of the mechanism and placed the servos, all we need to do is 3d print the main base to make it more stable, wire everything up to the arduino, and make a joystick controller to control the eyes! 👀
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 9 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I soldered some more connections in another tracker. This time I didn't burn myself too so that's a plus. Unfortunately I may take longer than the 10 days but hopefully my 3d printer can print the other parts so that I can finish soon.
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 7 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I took a rest day because of my allergies. Also my 3d printer decided that every print is now flawed. Lots of soldering will be done tomorrow.
@alialiwa20050Winter of Making Day 7
Libre Web Services case finished printing!
@Jaden0Day 6 of WHW
3D printer IS STILL broken from the nozzle change. Sam is helping me so there is hope. No progress today
@linkai0Day 5/10 of #hardware-party!! :winter-hardware-wonderland:
oops, i missed a day, but i’m back. not many new updates about the split flap display — ive smoothed out some of the holes that the flaps are inserted into the drum so none of the flaps get stuck now. one thing im trying to look into rn is that sometimes it flips too many flaps than it should. (maybe the number of steps im making the motor turn is too many?) also im gonna label the flaps soon with the alphabet so it actually displays stuff lol.
also… ive been 3d printing a moon lamp for a gift for a friend! check it out :))
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 5 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I spend most of my time redesigning the case for the vr body trackers. This should be the final revision for the tray on the inside so hope all goes well on the 3d printer@Jaden0Day 5 of WHW
Definitely some type of warping going on here. Still trying to fix my 3D printer 😭 😭
My microcontroller does not fit but I have all the parts I need laid out
@VinciC-U04HJHZ3Y0M0Day 2-3 WHW ❄️
• Finished assembling 3D printer
• Calibrations complete
• Did a small test print and the quality was better than expected!
• Started configuring the cloud ☁️ platform that connects the API to my raspberry pi
@Daniel0Winter Wonderland - Day 4/10! (#hardware-party)
I'm super tired today, so I'm going to keep this update short with bullet points:
• Got motor mounting plate made on router!
• Received last connector I needed to hookup battery to speed controller
• Soldered different connector types to wire
• Made first basic configuration for speed controller (completely untested)
• 3D print motor mount slider block
• 3D print pulley
• Assemble all major components to bike
• Wire everything (a lot of things!)
• Cable management
• Test the esc configuration
I thought of another addition to the project as well. It would be nice to have a small bike computer with gps and a high contrast e-ink style display. This is definitely not going to be possible in these 10 days, but it's another thing to do after the base bike is done!
As always, here's the CAD for reference, and I'm open to suggestions!
(The pictures will be better tomorrow I promise)
@Jaden0Day 4 of WHW
Tdy I took the socket I printed b4 and tested it with diodes and jewelry wire. Tmr I have to debug my 3D printer and hope it works again. Still having adhesion and leveling issues
@covertimpala-U04FT6R458X0Day 3 of #hardware-party
I have been buisy today, so i couldnt do much, however worked on testing and writing code for the nRF52840 Sense
Tomorrow i will start 3D printing parts and testing the hall effect sensors
will probably also start writing sensor fusion code to calculate the orientation of the glove
@zuzu-U04GANRG9TN0Day 4 of winter wonderland! I finished my 3D design! I used a model y reddadsteve made on thingiverse and modified it! My brothers trying to fix his 3D printer but if he doesn't fix it in time for next week I'll print out my stuff at the nearby college.
@msw0day 4 of 10 of the #hardware-party where i’m building a split-flap display. I’m flying today, and TSA wouldn’t let me take the 3d printer onboard. instead i’m writing the code right now!
I don’t have a device in my hands and all the sensors and motors, so instead i’m writing a bunch of modules to test out with jobs like…
• passing a message down a chain of microcontrollers
• moving a stepper motor
• reading sensor values
Then, once I have the hardware back in my hands I can quickly test out each script to make sure it works & combine them into a single script that runs the whole thing!
I’m dumping all the scripts into github.com/maxwofford/split-flap
@alialiwa20050Winter of Making Day 4.5
Here's the first successful print of a node rack platform (it's screwless!), as well as a freshly unboxed piece of credit-card-sized, Arm-powered :arm: Libre Web Services :libre-web-services: hardware infrustructure!
@alialiwa20050Winter of Making Day 4
I tried 3D printing my design from yesterday, but my printer gave me good advice after failing repeatedly... don't overcomplicate things.
Hey, simple is best, right?
Here's Libre Web Service's :libre-web-services: simplified cover.
3D printing today. Hopefully all goes well.
@AngelaM-U04JQQEC3MF0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 3 of #WinterHardwareWonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Today I worked on calibrating/fine tuning the 3D printer to ensure everything goes smoothly for printing tomorrow. There's a 4-day weekend so I plan to pick up the pace with this project and begin printing the MIDI controller case. I plan to change a few things to the cad before printing. Hopefully that goes well so I can begin assembly!
7 days more to go :rapid:
@Daniel0Winter Wonderland - Day 3/10! (#hardware-party)
I wasn't able to get my partial depth cut motor plate made today, so I put my attention towards some newly received hall effect sensors! Unlike the last pack I mistakenly ordered, these are ratiometric. This means that their output voltage is proportional to the strength of the magnetic field present (the ones I brought previously only functioned as magnetic switches).
This proportionality is important because these sensors will sense how much I pull the brake lever in order to vary the strength of regen braking. Having varying voltage also means that I'm going to have to tune the speed controller with minimum and maximum voltages output by the sensor.
Testing time! I only slightly burned myself by shorting the sensor, but the sensor was fine. After that slight mishap, I hooked it up to the oscilloscope and grabbed a neodymium magnet I plan to use on the bike. With that specific magnet, I tested the detection range of the sensor and from that determined where the magnet should be mounted for the greatest (while still detectable) range of brake handle motion.
I plan to use good old hot glue to mount the hall effect sensor and magnet to the bike, but if it ends up too janky, I'll design a 3D printed solution.
Aside from machining the motor mounting plate, I also need to 3D print my large pulley. Once that's done, I can get to assembling V1 onto the bike!
CAD for reference
@ShreekarEaranti0Day 2&3 for whw:
My brother and I assembled the 3D printer and did leveling. We did a few test prints as well. Aditya started working with his raspberry pi, he assembled it and began working on the software.
3D Printer issues D:
Filament snapping, the filament feels quite dry while printing.
@YutaroU.-U04FSLFMB5Y0Day 3/10 of #hardware-party! Today I started printing the housing for my weatherproof enclosing for the electronics. The slicing software that came with it has horrible UI so I'm using ChituBox in order to slice the files. I printed the slices filea, but turns out I need to rotate board 90 degrees in the slicer because the length and width got inverted. It cut off the tip of the box. The good thing is the box is shaped just like a box so I'm using it as a mini parts bin. Also cleaning resin prints is a semi-nightmare. It takes at least 3 times longer than taking off supports with good adhesion on a normal 3d printer. Tommorow I will continue the code and re-print the box.
@AliHussain-U04JJLFSSVD0Day 3 of #hardware-party
Finished my CAD model of my smart lock, it includes all the parts I need in order to properly mount it to a door and lock it. Made a basic part model of the servo and arduino I plan to buy to test fit all the parts together. Tomorrow I'll export it to my 3D printer and start the printing process, hopefully it goes well.
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 3 of WHW - #hardware-party - I got my 3d printer working and can finally start working and making progress on the electronics of the project.@VincentvH-U04HW44NLJ30I spent the two first days of the winter hardware wonderland assembling my 3D printer. All of my parts haven’t arrived yet so Today I did some test printing and adjusted the slicer settings.
@NoahKabiri-U04HUJMHM6H0Winter Wonderland Day 1- Set up the resin 3d printer and ran a test print. Print quality turned out really good, but I need to tweak the bottom layer exposure time because I almost broke the pieces trying to get them off of the base plate.
@zuzu-U04GANRG9TN0Day 2 of winter wonderland!!
I worked more on my 3D model, I used a model and modified it to fit my project-changed the size, added a wall, added a sign, added 'bushes. I wanted to test run a 3D print but turns out the belt of my my brothers 3D printer isn’t working…he got a replacement but I won’t be able to test until then…I should've tried it out before...it's okay since I have time. Tomorrow I'll finish my model and try out my soldering kit!
@AngelaM-U04JQQEC3MF0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 2 of #WinterHardwareWonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Hey all! Today I focused on setting up my projector and camera. To my surprise everything went great and so I made a couple designs to test it. Unfortunately, I made no progress on the main hardware aspect of my project (MIDI controller). BUT I am planning to complete it as soon as I can get a hold of the 3D printer. I suspect I can finish it in a day so no stress :blobhypedance: Nonetheless, super exciting stuff today in terms of creating visuals!!
8 days more to go :rapid:
@Jaden0Day 2 of WHW
had enough time to 3D print another case, this time without warping! I also installed a 0.2 nozzle for my hot swappable sockets
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 2 of #hardware-party - I bought the wrong thing to get my 3d printer working but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. Also somehow 3 of my packages from China arrived 18 days early and got to the WHW on time. I'll have more progress done in the next 8 days.
@Keevan0Day 2/10 of #hardware-party!
3D printed all of the needed mounts/clips & a case for the arduino and cables to sit underneath the camera. - had to go to the CT makerspace and use their 3d printer :)
@tinu0day 2 of winter wonderland!! Today I got my i2c OLED display working, I spent a while troubleshooting until I realized that this OLED had a weird i2c address. But I got it working in the end. This weekend I'll have a lot more time so I'll begin cadding and 3d printing the frame for my chess board ♟️.
@MasonNamminga-U04FHJNQ7HD0day 2/10 of #hardware-party and today i worked on some 3d designs for parts that i will 3d print later in the week!
@VinciC-U04HJHZ3Y0M0❄️Late day 1!
Messing around with my 3D printer and trying to get it assembled.
Done most of the assembling and will be doing some calibration tomorrow, hopefully it'll work the way it should 😂
