Strange times we live in these days. Staying at home does allow me to work on projects which have been slowly progressing over time. And one of those is the Ant PCB Maker. A CoreXY based small CNC mill that can make printed circuit boards (PCBs). Contrary to the guide I’ve decided to built mine a little bigger. This should allow me to create PCBs which are up to 200x200mm without any problems. continue reading...

Since a month I own a small 3D printer: the Prusa Mini. I’ve printed almost half my current spool of filament and I can say I love the way the Prusa Mini works for me. Once of the upgrades I have done is move towards Octoprint for my workflow, this allows me to connect everything together from my own computer.

VSCode, with the following plugins: Python for VSCode autopep8 Bracket pair colorizer 2 Indent rainbow Git Lens Virtualenv (with virtualenvwrapper) All environments are saved in the ~/. continue reading...

Today marks something special. Ten years ago, inspired by Buster Benson I started taking a picture at 8:36pm every day. A simple thing you might think, but in the end I kept doing it and to this day I still do. Keeping a habit for 10 years makes it a bit extraordinairy and I can say I will continue taking a picture! Below you will find this years movie of all the photos I took. continue reading...
