Finished cutting parts for adjustable 'sdr'. pocket machining for half depth cutouts on the top piece worked great! Some manual adjustments needed because pieces fit Very snug..too snug. Need to whittle away more thickness from the side tabs for the top to fit. In the morning!
Is there a caliber around Chattlab?

I'm assuming my 3D prints are not doing well? First batch worked great and last 2 there's an empty platform and green bits everywhere. Is one in particular getting dragged?

The bed needed leveling last night, pretty out of alignment. My prints did fine after that.

Hey guys, apologies I've been 3D printing the past few days and left a print job on the platform.  I was sure that I would get back to it today to clean up but never go to it and I'm leaving for Texas tomorrow for the week.

I'll be back next Saturday to clean up, thanks guys!

Did anyone happen to find a box/bag with two Raspberry Pis and some memory cards in the lab? I'm losing my mind ...

I believe it would have been in a brown walmart bag. The PIs themselves were just in the generic clear plastic containers. It's entirely possible they're in my shop somewhere. This is what happen when I clean ...

Please activate your personal networks: We are officially looking for a larger space in the 5,000 to 10,000 sqft range. Industrial raw is perfect. Need ground floor access and decent electrical service. Needs to be within the city limits and central to downtown.

I've been looking as well. Am involved with MakerEd and MakerVista with Art120.org and would like to explore some more space near them or being involved more somehow. I thik if a Nexus of similar things can be nearby they can feed off of and enhance each other.

Hey guys, smoking in the brewery (or anywhere else in the lab) is not cool.

However! The door in the brewery was pushed opened, from the non-lab side. So it's probable that it wasn't one of us. I'll let our fearless leaders handle that.

Thanks guys

This Zip Tie Lounge Chair from Opendesk.cc was the first furniture we cut with the CNCR. It took about 5 hours from start to finish including learning the toolchain for creating the paths and executing them on the machine.

The most complex and large project since the large '4' sign for the Chattanooga Public Library's 4th Floor. This was much more accurate to say the least after all the upgrades we have put into this incredible machine.

Huge thanks to +Jason Brown for his help in getting me up to speed on the tooling both virtual and real.f

Yeah, looks comfy. And, for exotic materials... that got me thinking. You could always go for an aspen slatted, unicornhide edged design, and frame it all up with unobtanium. Just sayin'.

We have acquired a sweet lathe. 12" swing variable speed, all the bells and whistles for our needs. Pleased to add this to our steadily growing collection of machines. It is a Logan 2527 and is in extremely good condition.

Hi @Tim Youngblood, I was mentioned by a friend of mine named Dan Baker, whom is a member of the Astromech builders group. I also happen to be a member of the Astromech builders group also.

I do have a question as it refers to 3d Printing: I have built a Mini Kossel printer and am not sure of how to calibrate it or to make sure everything is working properly. I happen to live in Flintstone, GA so driving down to the Chatt*lab Makerspace is no problem, please let me know if you could take a look at it and maybe help me with getting it to work.

Hi Tim, are you going to be there tonight, I got the firmware for a mini Kossel uploaded to the printer and have marlin installed on it also. But I'm finding it rather hard trying to get it programmed into the firmware of the dimensions and details on my printer into Marlin. I'm still puzzled about the err max temp on the printer on it too. Please let me know if you could help me out.

Small update:  Last night I got the DRO setup on the Z-Axis on the mini-mill.  Two more to go.  Anyone have an android tablet lying around? I'd like to integrate those into a larger screen with this: http://www.yuriystoys.com/p/android-dro.html

Today I ordered some cable / drag chain for the big CNC router.

Hey, it's Michael from the 4th Floor. Although I've only been using them for a few months, I'm beginning to appreciate the love-hate relationship with Replicators. How has Chatt*lab handled the amount of upkeep that the Replicators require? Do many people tweak them here and there, or is there a person who has really focused on keeping the MakerBots consistent?

We don't have a Lulzbot at Chatt*Lab just an old replicator at the moment.

Looks like ABC will be airing some robot battles soon.
BattleBots returns to television this summer, to the delight of all.
