Today I am performing a rework mod to my #limeSDR to see if I can get it to receive an FM station. https://myriadrf.org/blog/optimising-limesdr-matching-hf/
Pycom gPy is a SoC offering which supports micro-python as well as WiFi, BLE and cellular LTE CAT M1/NB1 radio protocols.
I've been compiling my notes on a iot weather station design here: https://github.com/derefnull/open-iot-weatherstation
I've seen multiple makers use Plasti Dip for projects. I've got 3D printed feet on a robot that don't grip on hard surfaces, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
tonight I upgrade the STM32F407 discovery board's on-board programmer with Segger J-Link firmware so I can develop & debug with macOS instead of a windows VM..
FreeCAD 0.17 has been released with some big updates.
I used the new part design work bench this morning and like what I'm seeing. I've been wanting better assembly functionality since the 0.13 days, and it seems like they're headed in a good direction. If you're a FreeCAD user who wants to support the team, check out Yorik van Havre and Kurt Kremitzki on Patreon.
Spent a good bit of yesterday starting work on my CAD coursework, reverse-engineering a bicycle pedal model from 3D scans. It's a cool process and once I'm done at uni I might try to replicate it with open-source software.
Honestly, the amount of stuff i learn on mastodon is ridiculous. I feel like i've been living under a rock all this time. It probably has to do with the fact that a lot of you early adopters seem to be an adventurous bunch and so my feed is unadulterated by the typical FB, IG, and Twitter crowd.
Anyway, as one of you said earlier, "y'all are valid."
Keep it weird, mastodon.
@algernon I grew up using one and I have otherwise positive memories, but I was dealing with old UNIX hackers at the time.
I also built a "standing adapter" for a nook in my dorm out of some scrap MDF shelving. It's not perfect but it's VERY comfortable to use with an Ergodox.
