The Atari 2600 Raspberry Pi Case:

Here is a little thing I made.

 

Thingiverse – Atari 2600 Raspberry Pi Case

And here are some pictures:

This was a really fun project that taught me a lot about using OpenSCAD. In particular, I learned a lot about getting real-world measurements into the CAD environment (if anyone has any tricks . . . → Read More: The Atari 2600 Raspberry Pi Case:

New manual bed-leveling mod for the Makerfarm Prusa i3.

(Right after I finished this mod, I looked online and discovered that Colin at Makerfarm is actually selling a kit to do exactly what I have done. You may have all the necessary parts lying around your shop – I did!)

One thing that has always bugged me about the Prusa i3 design is the . . . → Read More: New manual bed-leveling mod for the Makerfarm Prusa i3.

3D Printing - The Prusa I3 - Arrival and unboxing

After a great deal of market research, I decided that my first 3D printer would be a RepRap Mendel, specifically a Prusa I3.

One of the best parts, in my opinion, about building a RepRap is that there really is no “Standard” model. Most kits are based on one person’s individual “build”, and . . . → Read More: 3D Printing – The Prusa I3 – Arrival and unboxing.

Building and testing the Makerfarm Prusa i3 3d printer: The Build

My original idea was to write a nice, big, detailed build log for the Makerfarm Prusa i3 printer. The problem was, the notes I was keeping took about as long to write as the actual build did, so I didn’t really see the point in writing up a big post that pretty much went like:

Building and testing the Makerfarm Prusa i3 3d printer: The Software

Okay, you’ve got your new printer all built, you’ve got a power supply hooked up, and maybe, if you’ve got an LCD controller, you’re basking in the blue glow of success.

Now what?

Maybe you’ve checked out Thingiverse, or one of the other sites where people can share their designs. YouTube has lots of examples . . . → Read More: Building and testing the Makerfarm Prusa i3 3d printer: The Software

The art of the failed 3D print: Some happy accidents...

It will absolutely happen to you. Once you have built, bought, or otherwise acquired a 3D printer, it might even happen on your very first attempt to print something. You will have a failed print.

Most of the time, prints fail in decidedly uninteresting, mundane, and often downright boring ways. Maybe . . . → Read More: The art of the failed 3D print: Some happy accidents…

3D printing, the journey FINALLY begins!

I can remember very clearly the moment I decided I would be investing in a 3D printer. The January, 2010 issue of MAKE Magazine (probably my favorite magazine of all time) had just arrived, and I was reading it while on an overnight layover in Los Angeles. The cover story was on Makerbot Industries‘ Cupcake, . . . → Read More: 3D printing, the journey FINALLY begins!

More coffee adventures: Real Live Espresso Gear...

As just about anyone who knows me can attest, I love coffee. Over the last few months, that appreciation (snobbery?) has elevated considerably.

In the process of starting to roast my own beans, playing with the Aeropress, the Clever, and a number of additional coffee toys, I started to see the real limitations of my . . . → Read More: More coffee adventures: Real Live Espresso Gear…

Me and The Bean - A coffee journey.

Anyone who knows me knows I love coffee.

Let me rephrase that. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE coffee!

I’ll be the first to admit that my love for coffee may not be the completely healthy kind, but rather the slightly obsessive, bordering on creepy, early signs of stalker kind of love.

Okay, I . . . → Read More: Me and The Bean – A coffee journey.

Adventures in DIY coffee roasting - The Whirley-Pop!

So there I was, cleaning out my kitchen.

Way in the back of an under-the-counter cabinet, I found it. It had been a wedding present from a dear friend. Mrs. Zennmaster and I had been married for over ten years.

When it was new, it came with a brick of orange butter/oil/grease and a special . . . → Read More: Adventures in DIY coffee roasting – The Whirley-Pop!
