This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

The prints that I am most impressed with were Shermans that were printed in PLA on an Ultimaker 2 with layer heights of 0.1mm and 0.15mm at 30-35/mmps.

If you want a tank but you don't have a printer you can, in effect, rent some time on one by winging your way to 3DHubs:
