It took a while, but I found the best solderpaste dispenser around - and I'm selling it on Tindie under my "alter ego" DBA. If you're a MakeIt member, hit me up for a big old coupon, OK?

This is the board design that we're using as the example for the class I'm teaching at the Zahn Center - "Make Your Own PCB with SMT". It's a clone of everyone's favorite Atmel based board.

Shoot me a message if you want the files - done in DipTrace.

I want one. Seriously, just take my money now.

It's called Bridge, and the creator, Harsh Mody, tell us all about how he started with an idea, and got his concept to the the prototype stage. Don't miss it at our 4/30 meeting.

Some scenes from an SMT/PCB class that I taught at the Zahn Center this month. Students learned how to create schematics, layout PCBs, and then hand assembled their creations (which were Duemilanove clones without the FTDI chip).

Just got back the PCBs from a project that I'm working on. I thought it'd be interesting to see what once existed as a breadboard design now functioning as a PCB.

FYI, I did the surface mount on the PCB. Including all of those 0603 LEDs. By hand :) I think I need new glasses now.

I love it when a project starts to come together.

It's a testbed for a larger project involving arduino-driven LED matrices which talk to one another via I2C. See the photo captions for more details. I just liked the "still lifes" of the different pieces getting completed.

MakeIt NYC is doing an event that might be of interest to folks here that are in the NYC area - in-depth discussion about using 3D Print services, and desktop 3D Printers, for design and prototyping, with presentations from Shapeways and Solidoodle.

We'll also have two MakeIt NYC members show off their latest projects - both using 3D Printing - and we're putting names in the hat for a $1000+ ticket giveaway to the Inside 3D Printing conference coming up in April.

The class gets a huge treat - they also get to build an FTDI based USB-TTL board for programming their Arduino clones. Here's the design - pretty!

Shoot me some email if you want the files - done in DipTrace.

Take one part public domain data from NASA, one part 3D printer, and a few dashes of ingenuity - and get a veritable work of art.

On 4/30, SuperMaker Howard Fink tells us how he made his incredible Lunar Maps.

4/30: Wireless computing. For dogs. A peek into a Kickstarter campaign in progress. A new Type of wireless controller. 3D printed Lunar topo maps. And, of course, pizza.

Seen at the MakerGear booth at the NYC Inside 3D Printing show, identified as a "second-stage prototype".

Anyone have really good tips for getting stuff off Kapton? Oh, and does anyone have a good source for really wide tape? (>=220mm)?

As +MakeIt suggested, I use 130mm wide kapton from protoparadigm using the water and soap method and it works flawlessly. I keep some extra sheets of 5.5" mirror squares so I do a batch of tape at once in case I gouge something I have at least one backup surface to swap out.  Otherwise when printing PLA just let the thing cool down to under 50C before popping it loose. ABS OTOH is more likely to need to be torn off even after cooling down.
