New Year, New Projects, New Hackery

Its a new year for new projects at the new space! That’s a lot of new.

Eggbot
Everyone’s favorite Eggbot is busy putting some decoration on decorations. The dry erase test prints came out well, and final designs will be printed on them at an upcoming open house.

Shapeoko 2 upgrade/build

Given a sturdy printer, making extra parts for the new Shapeoko 2 is easy. Our SeeMeCNC Rostock Max V2 works great. We are working on a case and limit switch holders.

Vending Machine

The vending machine is a robot that sells stuff, they are neat. Everyone likes to understand vending machines. When we got it, we fixed the vending machine and had it working like all vending machines. We could have left it alone but that is not fun. These 24v, 9-bit loving, reliable, pop-selling automatons contain time-tested technology and learning about it has been fun.
