PLY90 - Ply Products What is the PLY90? The PLY90 is a patent pending connector that is a faster, better looking alternative to drilling and screwing projects together.Save time and energy by not having to align every board and precisely drill and screw all the pieces togetherYou can focus on the design of your creation using a standard construction methodEasily disassemble creations for storage or moving, recycle old projects into new ones What type of materials does the PLY90 bracket work on? The PLY90 bracket has two included screws that allow it to work with all sheet materials/plywood between .450-.755”.
The Mechanical Vivarium of Dr. Iguana 5V Boost Switching Regulator Here's a little project I put together for a friend. He wanted to build a project that ran off 5V but didn't want to use a 9V battery. I found an interesting part on Digikey that can take the output of 1 or 2 AA or AAA batteries and boost it to 5V. Infact the part can be programed for any output voltage between 1.8V to 5.0V using two resistors. If you leave off the resistors you get a 3.3V output. DVD Training 12: Blender for 3D Printing - Blender Store By Dolf (Macouno) Veenvliet. Blender already supports 3D printing modeling and file-formats since 2002. With the latest Blender version (2.67) this now is even more accessible and powerful with the new 3D Printing Toolbox and real-time Mesh Analysis features. This Training DVD is for everyone who is into 3D printing, beginners and professionals alike.
20 Arduino Projects Of 2012 While looking for ideas for new some new project I noticed there aren’t many lists of Arduino projects online so I decided to make one and in the last few days I’ve been carefully digging Reddit (r/Arduino) and the Arduino forum until I ended up with a list of 20 Arduino projects. All the projects in this list follow two simple criteria: They’ve been published/released in 2012.They provide quite detailed info (the more the better). The second criteria forced me to discard some amazing projects, but I didn’t want this post to be a simple showcase of cool Arduino projects, I wanted it to be an useful reference for Arduino users. 20. arduino-l3dgecomm AASaver « Rayshobby Update AASaver 2.0 is now available.

20 Arduino Projects Of 2013 The world is full of incredible makers which make new amazing things with Arduino every day and I think that collecting and showcasing the most interesting ones can be truly inspirational, especially for people who just started with Arduino or are planning to start soon. In this post, which follows the very popular 2012 edition, I collected 20 amazing Arduino projects of 2013 carefully selected after digging the web for days. All the projects in this list follow two simple criteria: _-= Uzzors2k =-_ Project Site Flyback Transformer Drivers The 555 Driver Basic Flyback transformers are found in monitors, TVs or anything with a CRT, and are sometimes known as Line OutPut Transformers, or just LOPT. A newbie's guide to UAVs What is an amateur UAV? An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft that has the capability of autonomous flight, without a pilot in control. Amateur UAVs are non-military and non-commercial. They typically fly under “recreational” exceptions to FAA regulations on UAVs, so long as the pilots/programmers keep them within tight limits on altitude and distance. Usually the UAV is controlled manually by Radio Control (RC) at take-off and landing, and switched into GPS-guided autonomous mode only at a safe altitude.
Building MirrorMirror Update I’ve created a forum at mirrormirror.tech for discussion and a place to get help if you’re stuck. All new updates to this guide will be hosted there. Thank you! A Raspberry Pi powered Magic Mirror A magic mirror is a raspberry pi powered monitor behind a double sided mirror. bunnie's blog We’re launching a crowdfunding campaign around our Novena open hardware computing platform. Originally, this started as a hobby project to build a computer just for me and xobs – something that we would use every day, easy to extend and to mod, our very own Swiss Army knife. I’ve posted here a couple of times about our experience building it, and it got a lot of interest.
Projects and Learning Approaches - Maker Ed's Resource Library “Projects & Learning Approaches” includes a wide variety of information, meant to provide educators and facilitators with ideas for short-term activities as well as open-ended long-term projects, curriculum samples, examples of facilitation methods and practices, and the pedagogies and values aligned with making. The resources below are listed in alphabetical order, as a default. They are also organized into subcategories, accessible by the tabs at the top of the grid. When hovering over each box, keywords provide a simple description and glimpse into the content of the resource, which is accessible by clicking on the arrow in the upper right-hand corner. Filter - All Getting Started Blondihacks Pushing Johnny’s secret buttons. Every pinball machine from about 1980 onwards (the solid-state era) has a diagnostic control panel inside it. This is a set of buttons used to control service menus for running game tests, setting prices, gathering gameplay statistics, modifying game rules, and anything else an operator or technician might have needed to do. It has arguably become an even more important tool as these games age, because breakdowns become more frequent.
FISHINO: Arduino becomes wireless Why “Fishino” ? The names comes to a joke made on April Fools’ Day (in Italian “Pesce d’Aprile“, and ‘Pesce‘, which sounds ‘pashe’ means Fish) made on an Arduino forum where we “presented” a new board named “Fishino Zero” which had revolutionary technical specs. The symbol, placed on board’s picture with a graphical editor, was the small fish which became the actual logo. Fun Stuff Let’s set the scene. It is Thanksgiving Day, the table is set, the food is ready, and your wife breaks two cork screw pullers in the cork of the wine bottle. How do you get the cork out without digging it out and making a complete mess? Solution: Simple! Use three rolls of electrical tape, lockjaw pliers, one extra large adjustable wrench and a crowbar.
