Printer stuff[edit]


High school teacher RepRap building[edit]

I'm involved in the organization of workshops to let middle and high school teachers build RepRap 3D printers.

Random other things I did[edit]

  • I created a small tool to upload multiple images to Appropedia. (Something changed to the site, so this doesn't work anymore.)
  • I wrote a script to mirror Thingiverse.

Printing stepper motors[edit]

I'm investigating a combination of printable motors using a mix of normal PLA or ABS and solvable and conductive materials.

First step: Printing gearboxes in one piece with PVA.

Done: set up a dual extruder printer.
