I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA and I occasionally make things and post stuff online. Blogging since 1997 and can't seem to stop. Please enjoy these wonderful links to other places:

If you want it to get worse just change it from a hobby to a business!

OpenSCAD is great for programmers because you write code to generate 3D objects. If you love Python there are ways to write Python that then generates OpenSCAD code, so that may be worth looking into.

Made an enclosure for my beepy. I think enclosures are my favourite part of printing (lemmy.world)

I grabbed a beepy a little while back (if interested BE ADVISED: they’ve since gone dark and left a bunch of people holding out for one, I got really lucky and ordered super early) so I could work on some python stuff on the go. I didn’t like having all the parts exposed, and the cases available seemed too flimsy for my...

Looks good! I'd guess 80% of my printing is enclosures. ;)

Artemis app broken - is the project still alive?

I've enjoyed using Artemis even though I can't login through it (I'm on kbin). It's been interesting to be a pure lurker instead of an avid commenter like I was on the former site. In the past couple of days, though, Artemis has failed to fetch any new content. Deleting the iOS app and reinstalling through Testflight does...

My iOS app won't work anymore but I'm trying to be patient and understand that it's an open source project led by one person so there may be delays or issues that prevent progress or even things running smoothly. Hopefully it will return and improve with time.

Here's a post (and some photos) about the paper I make: https://rasterweb.net/raster/2023/12/19/handmade-paper/

Thanks! Yeah, I really had fun making paper last month so now it's time to print on all of it. (And then I'll make some more!)

The design for this one was a digital drawing (though sometimes it's just analog/paper) and I then 3D printed a plate and did a relief print using a Provisional Press. (I'm also really into rainbow rolls lately!) I make my own paper and this is from a recent batch. (I recycle our shredded paper at home.) The frame is 3D printed and I designed that as well.

The frame is 6" x 6" and the print is just a bit smaller than that.

Thanks! I've though about doing more... I started working on a trash can icon yesterday and I'll see where it takes me.

GarlicOS failure

I fired up the Anbernic RG35XX this morning and it worked fine for a bit and then started flashing and games would launch and then immediately quit. The whole screen was flashing / blinking. I tried the stock OS on the original SD card and it worked fine. I ended up doing a fresh install of GarlicOS on a new SD card and that was...

Well that's, uh.. interesting. So hugh project, money, but not really many new jobs. Oh well.

Well, I hate Microsoft but yay for business in our state I guess?

Sweet! I'd like to have my lead pipes replace at some point.

Is this about letting Nazis speak on UW campuses?

Solder Board - a soldering aid for adding pins to boards (www.printables.com)

I created what I am calling a “Solder Board” which is like a breadboard but with no internal connectors. The solder board is used for soldering of course. Specifically, for soldering pins onto PCBs, and in this case, onto microcontrollers.

So I'm thinking this PICO-8 community could use a list of resources. I'm pretty sure I've seen an "awesome" list as well as a list of links on (ahem) another link aggregator site... If no one else compiles one, I may end up doing it.
