Being some type of masochist, I decided to build a 3D printer from scratch. So far it works pretty well. There is always room for improvement though, so It will continue to be an ongoing project!
I have always been fan of rockets in any form, and have built numerous models, some with onboard electronics, like the yellow and black stripe one here, that has a hacked 808 car keys camera looking down, for onboard video!
I like technology for what it is, but also find that some things make neat art pieces. This is a Shadow Box mounting of pretty much every family of Intel processor for the last 30 years. It's right at home on the wall of my work space.
I have built a Miniature CNC Laser cutter from flatbed scanner parts. It uses a 1W 808nm laser diode, and can easily mark or cut pretty much any material that isn't white. I will try a 2W blue to see if it works better on light materials.
I have scratch built several small Quad-copters, Mostly built from Plywood and basswood. They have all flown well once dialed in. I really enjoy RC stuff, Both things that fly and things that drive.
