  1. It is constructed! However it is too late to power it up. My eyes are tired enough. First impression: It's cheap and it shows at every corner. Despite the "Pro" in its name it feels far from it. The front (and back) plate where the rods and screw rod for the table are attached to is made of bakelite. I expected aluminium. On the other hand it seems to be thick and sturdy. The only real bummers are the plastic spindle holder and the plastic holders for the bushings for sliding on the rods and the plastic screw rod nut holder. I'll test it tomorrow or so before my complaints get any validity. I mean I got what I paid for: A cheap CNC for cheap money. Baby's first CNC. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/874944

  3. @drinkingpony Thi is Not salvageable with my skills. The pads go straight into vias to the other side and there it is all covered with WS2812 LEDs. 3€ down the drain. Not worth my time to repair that. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/874616

  4. @drinkingpony Can be fun for sure. If I'd build a clock I'd make something like https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3346801 or https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3201077 using an ESP8266 or ESP-32 and make it Internet connected such that it updates its time over NTP and add the ability to set the alarms by weekday and other superfluous features like a web interface for setting all of that and display temperature and humidity or a countdown to a specific date (Christmas)...

  9. @drinkingpony Or use the micro controller idea in a different way: make the micro controller translate the signal of a different remote control that the TV recognizes like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yyy7h7qh80

  10. @scribus Look up "eigenfaces". It's an application of "eigenimages" that use principal component analysis to pictures of human faces. In the process it generates an image that is an "average" image when each image of the set contributes the same amount to the final image. That can be used to recognize faces or morph faces.
    The quality depends solely on the image set. The more faces are not aligned the "blurrier" it is and the more nightmarish it becomes.

  16. @drinkingpony https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2826950 Find someone with a 3D printer and let it print out for you for a small fee. I'd print it out for you but the shipping costs would be too high for its novelty value (about 16€ for shipping a small parcel worldwide for me).

  21. My improvised "heated" chamber for my 3d printer. It achieves to maintain 38°C (room temperature 20°C) just from the heat bed that is at 100°C. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/873620

  22. @drinkingpony I can recommend this https://www.youtube.com/user/featony/videos too. Dry fun humour, snappy and creative editing, and lots of metal (the material).

  24. @drinkingpony It was this channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9K6rby98W8JigLoZOh6FQ that I watched. I don't know how exactly I came to this channel but I guess it was a video about gallium (just a random search) that linked to one of his videos that showed how gallium broke down the aluminium casing of a lock.
