Deku Scrub

I’m slowly building up a collection of video game masks in our game room, but the Deku mask is destined for our dinning room opposite Majora’s mask.  I found this STL on My Mini Factory and had to modify it just a tad to get it to print in PETG without supports, mostly just thickening…

Using Fusion 360’s Calibrate Canvas to design from a photo

My wife works with children that have multiple, severe disabilities in an area that is pressed pretty hard for funding. Every now and then she and I will collaborate on a part or a tool to  help her and the kids she serves along the way.  A few weeks ago she showed me this tablet…

pi 0 as a wifi client, access point and camera

This is a continuation of my pi security camera system, but with some added functionality.    The motivation for this one basically boiled down to “I wonder if I can” . The answer is yes.   Using PiBakery once again, this recipe will configure the pi as a wireless client simultaneously configure the pi as…

CNCed companion cube

I’ve recently gotten my Shapeoko 3 up and running and I’ve been banging two rocks together trying to learn Fusion 360 and CAM.  I decided that the best way to do that was to just jump in and design something that I really would like to have and then cut it out.  After about 400…

Pi based security system

The Makerspace I’m a part of needed a security camera for insurance purposes.  Being a makerspace, we immediately over complicated things by deciding  to create our own system using a raspberry pi based DVR and some FOSCAMs.  The FOSCAMs became a problem that we had to limp through while we looked to stabilize our other…

Moto 360 travel charger

I enjoy my Moto 360 watch, and the wireless charging system is pretty good, but the charger isn’t the most convenient thing for traveling. I wouldn’t say that I travel light, but I travel very organized and the the stock charger would never fit inside one of the bubu wire wraps that I use.  I…

Cable modem bouncer

The cable modem at our Makerspace is super flaky and likes to not give out IP addresses.  We can VPN into the space to take care of the odd network issue, but if the internet is down, someone has to drive in and 99% of the time it’s fixed by rebooting the modem. Using a…
