Blog post: All systems are (mostly) go!

We have been busy the last two weeks getting all the goodies we bought and designed for the space working again. A big thanks to everyone involved with the cnc mills and laser cutters getting them working!

The Mini-mill

After a spindle and electronics upgrade and new housing to keep the dust in the Mini-mill is now working and ready for anything from cutting perspex to etching printed circuit boards.


Our purchase from China: Bessie. After some trail and tribulations the team working on it got things moving:

Laser Cutter

The laser cutter now has a new tube and cooling system and works (as long as the temperature is less than 30 degrees)!

Quake on the oscilloscope

Lastly a small personal project on getting quake to run on the oscilloscope by turning video sounds, you can listen to what the game looks like in the video.
