I have had a lifetime of interest in Electronics, Amateur Radio, Electric Universe Cosmology, Consciousness, Nature of Reality, Extraterrestrial Life, and anything to do with changing the world for the betterment of its deserving inhabitants; the real human beings, the normal people. But specifically not the uncaring rich, the unduly privileged, and the unhinged power-mad! And VERY ESPECIALLY, not the unquestioning, short-sighted, self-interested supporters of mainstream theoretical Cosmolog... Read More »

    Build and Improve a 3D Printer

    This instructable is a fine example of insight into what a person would benefit from greatly when starting out in the world of 3D printing. I congratulate you Gosse Adema for this fine effort ... hat tip to your experience and willingness to help others!I purchased an Anet A8 a few months back from Gearbest and have since through upgrades brought it to a very reasonable standard in its ability to print PLA and PETG; I'm still working on ABS to fine tune the best temperature paramaters. The existing YouTube videos that show the detail of the build process for the A8 are quite okay, but like "cobourgdave" has said, I wish that this instructable had been back then ... a lot of time and scratching of head would have been saved ... well done!

    Acoustic Radar Display

    Super project! Got it working without too much trouble; thank you *lingib*, for an excellent instructable.The two main issues I had before getting this project to work were ... figuring out how to tweak the "Processing" sketch to talk to the Arduino IDE, and a bad connection, which was totally my own fault (too embarrassing to explain, but ... I forgot to solder something(s)!) All of this was achieved by following the instructable to the letter. This success emboldened me to try running the project on a Pro-Mini, which worked just fine ... then I tried a Nano, which worked fine as well. The idea behind trying these smaller footprint Arduinos being that I had the notion to build the whole thing into a smaller box. The box I eventually chose had enough space inside to accom...

I forgot to solder something(s)!) All of this was achieved by following the instructable to the letter. This success emboldened me to try running the project on a Pro-Mini, which worked just fine ... then I tried a Nano, which worked fine as well. The idea behind trying these smaller footprint Arduinos being that I had the notion to build the whole thing into a smaller box. The box I eventually chose had enough space inside to accommodate a couple of Li-ion cells in series to power the stepper; I preferred this to driving it directly from the Uno. I also included an on/off switch for this battery stepper supply, and a reset push switch for the Uno (handy for me to have, given my method of repeat testing). Right now I have a completed, as specified, functional Acoustic "Radar" unit that has only one cable; USB to the PC. One thing I'd like to try is to extend the range beyond 1m ... some guidance on this would be appreciated?Being introduced to "Processing" has been a big step forward for me so, thanks for that, too.I have a small video https://vimeo.com/276095498 of the first success on the bench, before the sensor was mounted, so it's just sitting there static.I really enjoyed building this project ... thanks again lingib :-)
