So I know I haven't posted in many months, but I hope to fix that problem asap! I'm done with school for the summer so I should have lots of time to work on my projects. The one I am currently working on is a 3D printer. It is loosely based on a design by the wonderful folks over at candyfab.org It works by melting sugar with hot air and building up an object layer by layer (more on that in a later post). I am using an Arduino Diecimila as the controller (actually it's a Freeduino, but it's the same thing, except that the Freeduino is an Orange Board!). I am making good headway with it and hope to complete it in the next week or so. I will try to post pictures soon. In the meantime, if any of you have an interesting electronics project I'd love to hear about it!
