Last Nights Meetup – 21/05/14

This week we had a new member join us. Welcome Noto.

Johan bought us a fire extinguisher which some how did not get its picture taken

Franken printer has a new personality, Marius updating its firmware to marlin.

Marcel worked hard and getting the mendel90 y carriage build. Dont be alarmed he is just cutting the bolts shorter

We bottle the Marks real ale.

First had to figure out why the pump wouldn’t work. It was a loose wire which came loose from the arduino

We had Mark and Noto doing the capping while I filled the bottles. (Below the unbottled ale in the fermenter)

Lining up the beer for the bottle-ageing process

Did a quick test with the think pink but it seemed that something was shorting and kept resetting the arduino. Will need to investigate

Marcel started to put together a fume extractor for the space.

What’s in store for the next meetup:
Marcel will be putting the x and z axis together on his 3d printer
Johan will hopefully measure up for the desks and shelving (if one of us can remember a 5m tape measure)
Pressure testing the bottle washer/sanitizer to work out what size pump we need
Draw out the bottle carousel.
Discuss more group based makerlabs projects
Till next time…

Happy Hacking!
