Avoid using PVC

I see a lot of projects that use or re-use different grades of PVC pipe due to its easy use and availability. Free or cheap PVC seems to be a good material choice for those who lack the tools and skills needed for metal or wood work. I suggest that builder rethink this choice. Exposure to PVC is dangerous to your health. Fumes and dust from cutting, drilling and accidental burning or overheating PVC are known to cause cancer.A few points:PVC production is the largest use of chlorine gas in the world.Chlorine production consumes enormous amounts of energy.Chlorine production causes mercury pollution. Hazardous by-products are formed throughout the PVC lifecycle.By-products of PVC production are highly persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic.PVC is extremely difficult to recycle.PVC is one of the most environmentally hazardous consumer materials ever produced.source: http://www.healthybuilding.net/pvc/ThorntonPVCSummary.htmlDifferent grades of PVC have different melting points, flash and glass temperatures. At 70-80 Degrees C (~150 F), most grades begin to soften and degrade in performance. This should be taken into account when building projects that involve any kind of direct or indirect heat, including hot water, etc.(I've edited this post to contain more useful information)

How to avoid CNC crashes

Hey.I am wondering if it is possible to define particular areas on the bed of my CNC machine which I do not want the toolhead to pass over. My setup is an Arduino powered CNC pen plotter running GRBL. I am generating GCode in inkscape. I know I can set a safe height for the tool to pass over work safely but what if that height doesn't suffice. Can I define an area that the tool must not pass through?As a simple example:Before running a file the tool is at the origin. On sending the file the tool will take the most direct path to the first line to cut/draw. Imagine there is an obstacle that would cause a collision if the tool takes this direct path. Can I do something to ensure the tool navigates around that obstacle?I hope that makes some sort of sense :)Any ideas appreciated

Avoiding Unnecessary Conflict in the Workplace

I was sent this advice by a professional body that aims to provide "work life support" - basically trying to cut the amount of stress suffered by UK teachers (in any one year, around a third of serving teachers will have time off sick with work-related stress).  It's good advice for people in a lot of jobs (such as the infamous cubicles of American office life), so I thought I'd share it: Most of us spend the majority of our time at work, so when we experience conflict in the workplace it can have a huge impact on our lives. Disagreements are commonplace in a working environment, and can be helpful in challenging preconceptions and developing ideas, but this can descend into conflict when agreement cannot be reached, and neither party is prepared to compromise. This can be particularly difficult if one party feels victimised, ignored, belittled or intimidated. Often conflict is the result of miscommunication, and the best communication occurs when all parties are listening well. If we feel heard, we are more likely to want to listen in return, and to reach a better understanding of where the other person is coming from. Active listening will help you to hear and understand exactly what the other person is saying, and will encourage them to share more information. To be a good active listener:   •              Stop talking! You might be tempted to interrupt, but try to wait until the other person has finished saying what they want to say. •              Make sure you are giving good non-verbal signs that you are listening. These include maintaining eye-contact, having a good open posture (not crossing your legs or arms), looking interested and nodding. •              Use silence. If you pause for a few seconds before speaking, you may find that the other person has something more to say. •              Try to catch yourself if you're losing concentration. You might be drifting off, thinking about what you're going to say next, feeling sleepy, planning your dinner... •              Check your understanding frequently. You can do this by asking clarifying questions, repeating back in your own words what has just been said, or summarising what they've said so far. Get the other persons agreement that you've understood them correctly - if you haven't, then ask them to repeat what they've said and try again. •              Use open questions (what, where, who, why, when) if you want to get more information and encourage the other person to speak freely. Use closed questions (those resulting in a yes/no answer) to get specific information or to clarify your understanding. •              Be on the look-out for non-verbal signals - do they look tense? Are they speaking more quietly than usual?   ...we now return you to your usual programming...

Avoid wires from touching each other?

I am building a Guitar Distortion Pedal. I have made a case for it. When all of the contents are inside the case - sometimes there are misconnections, and 'scratchy sounds' i get through the amp. I'm assuming this is because some wires are touching OR some wires are NOT touching. In any case, I need suggestions as to how to avoid wires from touching each other. I know there are rubber wire sleeves that can protect the wire from other wires. I've used some of those. But, is there such a thing as a "Blanket"  to lay across the circuit board so it doesn't touch or interfere with the case? If so, please let me know!

Asking a servo to sweep on an obstacle avoidance car?

I am just a few weeks into learning how these things work, and as such, have primarily been looking at coding from examples and getting them to fit with what I am doing.  Here's the setup.  We (my students and I) have built an elegoo 4 wheeled arduino platform car.  Primarily, we are using it to autonomously move around the classroom, however we've found that the ultrasonic sensor just isn't cutting it.  We've added an optical sensor, which helps, and I've figured out the coding on getting that working.  Now, we are looking at having the servo holding the ultrasonic sensor to sweep 45 degrees to the left, then 45 to the right, and repeat.  We feel that we may be able to prevent some wall crashes and chair crashes that happen when the car comes in at an angle.  Here is the code we have now. The ABS and ACS numbers are different to account for the variances in motor manufacturing (the car wouldn't drive straight if all motors were spun up at the same speed).  We do have a second arduino hooked up mainly to control the LED's the kids added, but that code and board does not affect anything for this code and board. #include Servo myservo; int Echo = A4;  int Trig = A5; int in1 = 6; int in2 = 7; int in3 = 8; int in4 = 9; int ENA = 11; int ENB = 5; int ABS = 120; int ACS = 115; int angle = 0; const int avoidPin = 10; int rightDistance = 0,leftDistance = 0,middleDistance = 0 ; void _mForward() { analogWrite(ENA,ABS); analogWrite(ENB,ACS); digitalWrite(in1,LOW); digitalWrite(in2,HIGH); digitalWrite(in3,LOW); digitalWrite(in4,HIGH); Serial.println("go forward!"); } void _mBack() { analogWrite(ENA,ABS); analogWrite(ENB,ACS); digitalWrite(in1,HIGH); digitalWrite(in2,LOW); digitalWrite(in3,HIGH); digitalWrite(in4,LOW); Serial.println("go back!"); } void _mright() { analogWrite(ENA,ABS); analogWrite(ENB,ACS); digitalWrite(in1,LOW); digitalWrite(in2,HIGH); digitalWrite(in3,HIGH); digitalWrite(in4,LOW); Serial.println("go right!"); } void _mleft() { analogWrite(ENA,ABS); analogWrite(ENB,ACS); digitalWrite(in1,HIGH); digitalWrite(in2,LOW); digitalWrite(in3,LOW); digitalWrite(in4,HIGH); Serial.println("go left!"); } void _mStop() {   digitalWrite(ENA,LOW);   digitalWrite(ENB,LOW);   Serial.println("Stop!"); } int Distance_test()   {   digitalWrite(Trig, LOW);     delayMicroseconds(2);   digitalWrite(Trig, HIGH);    delayMicroseconds(20);   digitalWrite(Trig, LOW);     float Fdistance = pulseIn(Echo, HIGH);    Fdistance= Fdistance/58;         return (int)Fdistance; }  void setup() {   myservo.attach(3);   Serial.begin(38400);       pinMode(Echo, INPUT);      pinMode(Trig, OUTPUT);   pinMode(avoidPin, INPUT);    pinMode(in1,OUTPUT);   pinMode(in2,OUTPUT);   pinMode(in3,OUTPUT);   pinMode(in4,OUTPUT);   pinMode(ENA,OUTPUT);   pinMode(ENB,OUTPUT);    _mStop(); } void loop() {   boolean avoidVal = digitalRead (avoidPin);       myservo.write(90);     delay(500);     middleDistance = Distance_test();     #ifdef send     Serial.print("middleDistance=");     Serial.println(middleDistance);     #endif     if((middleDistance<=50) || (avoidVal==LOW))     {           _mStop();       delay(500);                               myservo.write(5);                delay(1000);            rightDistance = Distance_test();       #ifdef send       Serial.print("rightDistance=");       Serial.println(rightDistance);       #endif       delay(500);        myservo.write(90);                    delay(1000);                                                        myservo.write(180);                    delay(1000);       leftDistance = Distance_test();       #ifdef send       Serial.print("leftDistance=");       Serial.println(leftDistance);       #endif       delay(500);       myservo.write(90);                    delay(1000);       if(rightDistance>leftDistance)        {         _mright();         delay(180);        }        else if(rightDistance        {         _mleft();         delay(180);        }        else if((rightDistance<=50)||(leftDistance<=50) || (avoidVal=LOW))        {         _mBack();         delay(180);        }        else        {         _mForward();        }     }      else         _mForward();                     }

How to treat acetate (transparency film) to avoid ink from chipping

Hey y'all! I've got an odd issue with some transparency film that I'm sure one of you will be able to help me solve! I have a book of prints which I've been inkjet printing on to acetate. It's a lovely book, but the issue I keep running into is that the ink will rub off should someone or something happen to scratch the "wet" side of any of the prints. The prints also gather dust on this side, which after a while makes for a very dusty book! Does anyone have any idea of a treatment method (maybe a spray or a varnish) that would seal in the ink, protecting the prints from dust and scratches? I realize I could just print it on another type of photo paper and probably not have this issue, but I'd like the prints to be translucent (it creates a layering effect that's important to the finished book). Any suggestions gladly welcomed! Best, M
