What does this blog cover? Whatever I'm currently interested in. I started this blog almost a year ago to track what I was learning while I was teaching myself how to program an Arduino and play around with a 4x4x4 LED cube. Now, almost a year later I'm in the middle of researching and building a Reprap Prusa Mendel 3D printer so who knows where a 3D printer will lead me next, hopefully something as equally amazing.

Busy last week, but not with the 3D printer

Things were busy this last week with birthdays and other things that kept me from doing much with my 3D printer. I've finally got some time this evening so I'm starting at step 5 in the illustrated manual for building a Reprap Prusa Mendel and tightening down the frame while using the digital calipers to check all the measurements. I'm hoping I'll get through the print bed assembly this evening.
