Last Nights Meetup – 16/04/14

So the Easter weekend kind of ran away with this post but its finally here.
I arrived to find the lights off and the rest of the guys trying to prank me. It can be seen at 1:11 in the time lapse video Marcel put together of the meetup.
I brought the missing piece of the cnc frame which Marcel has been putting together

He continued with the wiring and we discussed some of the next steps on what track or rods we would use for the x,y,z axis

Here Mark and Marius get serious, deciding what to get for dinner…

Matt pop riveted a new top and temp sensor holder on the reflow oven

We wired up a relay board to the oven and gave it a test. it all fired up as it should and now we will just need to tweak software side

Mark started brewing his first batch of ale.

Mark started soldered a kit board he had bought awhile back

I rewired my mendel90 after upgrading the x carriage with updated parts. x-carriage runs a lot smoother now. next ill look at putting a optical endstop on the z axis

Marius forgetting his printer, picked a lock instead.

Tasted the current batch of beer. Really coming together and will be ready to be bottled at the next meetup. Looking very clear as well

What’s in store for the next meetup:

Bottling the american pale ale which will then be stored for another month before we start dishing it out.

Finalizing our list of names that we will have a vote on.

Running more tests on the reflow oven.

Time permitting working on a fun mini arduino project.

Till next time…

Happy Hacking!
