Galvin over at On Shoulders has started his new season with OpenSCAD for 3D printing.  While historically I’m a SolidWorks user myself, I look forward to this offering and trying it for myself.

Stock lock key, tumber and 3d printed keyNirav Patel looks like he likes to play with some diverse toys and has shared much at his blog.  Lately it seems he’s taken to 3D printing and offers a some useful tidbits in Physical Keygen: Duplicating House Keys on a 3D Printer.

 

Also, WeatherSpark.com is something I’ve been looking for a long time.  Thank you StumbleUpon!  It’s an easy to navigate way to have a look at historic weather data.  I don’t know how much it covers, but in my area it goes all the way back to 1980!  Looking at temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, thunderstorms and more!

Geo01005′s RepRap Ideas details some of his work around running a repstrap using EMC2 from a couple years ago. He’s documented some of his work around the hot-He also has a YouTube channel.

Andrew Angellotti is founder of spingarage LLC has a new blog that’s looking pretty interesting.  Here’s the first part of a tutorial on brushless motor control.

Tim has a great collection of posts on repstrapping over at BotHacker.

Musings on the usefulness of inkjet printers for a variety of applications.  So ok, I’m not the only one who’s been thinking about this, but here I hope to actually do something about it!

Anders is playing with EMC2 and RepRap functionality as well.  I’ve experimented with some of his temperature control ideas already, but need to work at the PID tuning a lot more.

PyroElectro has a bunch of tutorials for all kinds of fun stuff like this basic DIY servo/encoder setup.
