@vik0day 7 of #10-days-in-public. feeling less cooked today so i started work on my hall effect pcb. i dont kno if the low pass filter values are right (need to simulate in spice) and if the decoupling is right, but it's slowly coming together
@Kieran1Day 6 of #10-days-in-public: i was way too busy with school and robotics today to work on my website but I got to go to a maple syrup farm on a field trip and work on my teams robot; only one auto mishap today!
@Scott1700Day 2 of #10-days-in-public
Just getting a quick post, might update with more later. I started researching what components I might need for my pcb, and made an initial layout for it. I want to design this pcb to be small and modular for a microcontroller (not sure what I will use yet). The layout of the pcb is probably going to change.
@karmanyaahm2chessbot ESP32-DevKitC-v4 clone w/ Pololu DRV8834 motor drivers. Goal was to find out how well it runs at 5v (as opposed to 12v) (so I can simplify circuitry by having only one voltage rail). Answer was sufficiently well. Should be able to cross the board round trip in ~8seconds (ignore the video numbers)@phaedra0phaedraverse v3 is in the works! this time its in 3d (but its hard to portray 3d stuff in figma :p)
@KarthickArun0Working on a new PCB now !! ps. its called HackFuel (hint: has to do with batteries)
@cwalker0Did a mind-numbing amount of sanding last weekend to put a finish on this live-edge slice of black walnut for a table. Band-sanded with 80 grit sandpaper, then a random orbital sander at 100, 180, 240, 320, and 400 grit, then 3 coats of boiled linseed oil over the course of 2 days, then a final coat sanded in with 600 grit, and finally hand-sanded with 1500 grit for a satin sheen.
@Malycia2Continued working on FCC's registration form (now pushed to Github!). There are still a few kinks to work out (such as being able to submit an empty form), but it's coming along nicely :)
@Tom0Logo for my programming language. I wonder what it's called...
@zrl0working on a new poster design to try out for onboard! would love thoughts / feedback. the idea is to ask teachers to put it on their classroom doors, and for it to be visually stunning and catch people’s eyes
@ThomasStubblefield3scrappy w.i.p@sampoder0Dev & I went to a laser cutting class at the Generator! We met a guy who was learning to laser cut coconuts
@Peiprjs0Got bored in class so I set up a VPN to my home computer. This way I can download and read manga to read during boring lectures during the break
(dang you Slack and your weird markdown)
@sampoder0caches! in #caches, we created the art for the boxes that we’ll be using as caches. For a bit of fun we included a small easter egg that uses the cipher wheel! It was also interesting learning about PURL from @reesericci. here’s the Figma file we’re using: www.figma.com/file/gTQBOkFdXCQUeL2yQhmuki/the-cache.
The next step for us is getting these laser cut / engraved! And then ship them around the world...
