FreeCAD reaches the 4,000 commits mark since switching to Git

The current source code repository has reached 4,000 commits since it was migrated from SVN (Subversion) to the Git distributed revision control and source code management system back in 2012(*).
To those not familiar with dev speak, a commit is a change to the source code which can consist of added functionality or a bug fix.

For reference, it took the FreeCAD project 6 years to reach 5,000 commits on SVN (2006-2012).

*The Git system does not number commits but rather uses hashes (as shown in the screen). FreeCAD uses a script to count them to have a human-readable value.

NEW PRODUCT – Designing Circuit Boards with EAGLE

Powerful, flexible, and inexpensive, EAGLE is the ideal PCB design solution for every Maker/DIYer, startup, hobbyist, or student. It's powerful, and there's tons of open source designs released in EAGLE format to learn from. If you want to design cost-effective new PCBs, this is the tool to learn.

Matthew Scarpino helps you take full advantage of EAGLE's remarkable capabilities. You won't find any differential equations here: only basic circuit theory and hands-on techniques for designing effective PCBs and getting innovative new gadgets to market.

Scarpino starts with an accessible introduction to the fundamentals of PCB design. Next, he walks through the design of basic, intermediate, and complex circuit boards, starting with a simple inverting amplifier and culminating in a six-layer single-board computer with hundreds of components and thousands of routed connections.

As the circuits grow more complex, you'll master advanced EAGLE features and discover how to automate crucial design-related tasks. Whatever your previous experience, Scarpino's start-to-finish examples and practical insight can help you create designs of stunning power and efficiency.

 - Understand single-sided, double-sided, and multilayer boards

 - Design practical circuits with the schematic editor

 - Transform schematics into physical board designs

 - Convert board designs into Gerber output files for fabrication

 - Expand EAGLE's capabilities with new libraries and components

 - Exchange designs with LTspice and simulate their responses to input

 - Automate simple repetitive operations with editor commands

 - Streamline circuit design and library generation with User Language programs (ULPs)

 - Design for the advanced BeagleBone Black, with high-speed BGA devices and a 32-bit system on a chip (SoC)

 - Use buses to draw complex connections between components

 - Configure stackups, create/route BGA components, and route high-speed signals

Embrace Burns

This is the first piece of art to be engulfed in flames here at Burning Man.  They set it off just after sunrise...  it was so amazing to watch.  I usually don't post two photos in a row of the same subject matter, but I think these two together show the ephemeral nature and the full alpha to omega of what happens here every year.

What do you get when you flip 5 Ultimaker Originals upside down and flip the print heads as well? 3D printers that print columns of 2.5 meters!
