We’ve been making progress on the Global Hacker Space Challenge components. There are lots of activities going on, on different aspects of the project, and we are exploring multiple methods to create many of the parts. This is an image of a test cut for the positives of some 10xed 3mm LEDs.
The video is of a cut that went not so well of a 10x ATMega chip. I had neglected to restore my backlash compensation settings after making some updates, and the Z-axis lost height through out the cut making a sloped chip, and turning chunks of my spoil board into fine powder.
