Blog post: A typical Saturday
Saturday morning started slowly, but gradually built up to a hive of activity during the afternoon with all the tools being used for one project or another …
Since the CNC mill really lacked a good location, Rob really went above-and-beyond and made a whole new table with assistance from Indi and Luke …
… and as a bonus there is a little more workspace and the various off-cuts (metal, wood, acrylic) are tidied up.
Blog post: So, these got away from us a bit
We’re playing a bit of catchup here with the blog posts, but enjoy!
On Wednesday the 22nd we ran our first NeoPixels night to focus on what these little beauties can do. There was a brief talk on how they work and then lots of glowing LEDs. For anyone interested, we’re running another session next week.
We had a few photos from the next week. Tune in later for what’s been happening this week when we hopefully get back up to date!
Blog post: Brickvention
CCHS regulars Dave, April and Gil attended BrickVention with robots and costumes,
BrickVention is a Lego expo being run each year, they regularly invite costumers to attend to raise funds for charity, this year we were shaking tins for Amaze (Autism Victoria) under the banner of the Mandalorian Mercs costume club.
For Dave this was the first public outing of a mostly completed costume several months in the making, much of the work done at the hackerspace (Dave is the Green and Silver Mandalorian Mercenary), the response was great. Also in his first appearance on this blog is Orange Blend, Gil’s Dalek Roommate.
Here are some pictures of the event, and some reposts of some process pictures you may have seen before.
