WILL IT FLOAT?

https://youtu.be/QYMTvp1IiHE   Hi Everyone! Last week I could not test this thing (I'll have to start putting names to my projects) because it rained like there was no tomorrow but this week the weather has been incredible and even the sea was calm enough for the test. I did not change anything on it, it [...]

How fast will this go?

https://youtu.be/sMbvh4aoUEc Hi eveyone, this week I've added wheels to the EDF or better said, I added an EDF to a car that I just 3D printed. I did a few iterations of this on one week and between designing, printing and the video stuff it took all my available time, so no field test this [...]

WILL IT THRUST?

https://youtu.be/x4an5AN-7WQ Hi everyone! This week episode has been a really fun one! The initial intention of this project is make a standalone propulsion and direction system that can be attached to anything to make it RC controlled. At this point I've started to think that I might have went a bit too far with the [...]

UNMANNED WIDE ROBOTIC PLATFORM

https://youtu.be/RL32hphs50E Hi everyone! This week everything went a bit better, the couplings arrived at the beginning of the week, and as I've lost forever the calibration of my printer I've just had to redo it all from scratch. With all that I could get some decent prints for this weeks episode and the prints keep [...]

SDR PROJECT – FALSE START

https://youtu.be/mgYtCP70CMg Hi everyone! New project! As I've said in the video, I won't still tell you what is this about, but I'll give you clues with every video so you can give it a go at guessing what it is. In this weeks episode I've messed it big with the print settings, I've been mixing [...]

https://youtu.be/prBgqsazKg4 Hi everyone, do you know of a name for the first print of a printer? Like in the telescopes, and boats and so...  I can assure you that this is the very first attempt at printing something that this printer has made. There have been some issues while printing, and the print is not [...]

#23 – HEATED BED RELAYS (AND AC) – BUILDING THE BIG PRINTER

https://youtu.be/QLNvtewyGk8 Hi everyone! This week I swapped the two DC heated pads for the anticipated AC heated pads. As these cannot be connected directly to the ramps I'm using two solid state relays to switch the two heated pads but in a different than expected way. The two relays are wired in series so if [...]
