Just want to post a reminder that if you're on this instance and you're not into making the same types of things you see me post, that's ok. If you're making (or have made) a thing and want to share it, please feel free. I'll usually post things that are electronics or mechanics related, but I'm always interested in seeing the diverse things that makers create.

Its actually quite a challenge to come up with a list of 8 ingredients, from which you can make several drinks. Here's an example for an upcoming party:

Rum
Vodka
Orange juice
Cranberry juice
Lime juice
Passionfruit syrup
Midori
Cointreau

Makes:
- Hurricane (rum/passionfruit/lime)
- Cosmopolitan (vodka/cran/lime/cointreau)
- Cranberry zombie (rum/cran/lime)
- Vodka cranberry
- Vodka orange

I feel like this is an O(n^2) problem..

I also replaced the power supply to fix the issue of the machine going out of calibration due to fluctuating voltage.

Small update, I've put a few coats of clearcoat on the glass holder/drain. My 3d prints are not typically water tight and my concern was coloured liquid getting in there and staining the print.
