Adventures in 3D printing, and the end of the semester.
3D printing As I mentioned in my last post, I ordered a 3D printer off Monoprice's Ebay page. They had a very nice deal: a prusa i3 clone for only $309, or, shipped and taxed and everything, 478 canadian pesos. The printer. Monoprice Maker Select, or Wanhao...

Spring break week! Old electronic equipment salvaging.
Midterms are (semi) over! Springbreak is here! What best way to start spring break than by doing some electronics salvaging! Cleaning up the basement, I realized I had an old all-in-one printer, and an old scanner, taking wayyyyy too much space. Instead of ...

This week on Big Fred's Cosplay and Rocket Shop
ok...not really week, but who keep counts, right? Elucidator Scabbard After having finished Elucidator, I decided to give a try at making my own scabbard. As with any project where you make something for the first time, research is key. Thanks to our overlo...

Re-entry simulator - Part 1
Ages ago, I've had to make a launch simulator for a multi-staged rocket. The goal was to find the efficiency of multi-stageg rocket compared to single staged ones. That simulator was pretty simplistic; 1D (altitude only), no easy way to change initial condi...

A few weeks ago (as of posting this, not writting) I received an e-mail from my student project director saying the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering were planning on buying a few 3D printers, and wanted our opinion on the matter. They had r...

Happy new year! Of goals, robots, rockets and motivation.
2015 has been...a year. I did and lost the best job I ever had. Working with FIRST and the Jean-de-brébeuf students have been, not only the closest I've been to actual engineering, both the project management aspect and the design aspect, but also the most ...

Mango Scooter
Ah, the boringness of working at minimum wage at a convenience store while, at the same time, wrapping up my job as a FIRST Robotics team manager! The nice part about it is all the money it brings! Now, since I have absolutely no self control when it comes ...
