I am not happy with the plywood mill method of using U bolts to hold the Dremel in place. So this morning I designed this:
Took on a new project a few weeks ago.
Some Filipino engineering students hired me to set them up with a 3D printer and integrated Raspberry Pi computer.
We started out with a Solidoodle clone printer we mod and sell in the Philpines. It is a improved version of the Solidoodle 3 with CNC aluminum parts in place of the originals plastic parts.
We then added in the liquid cooled print head, and started on the Pi.
Turns put it is not as easy as it seems.
I got Octopi for the Raspberry Pi up and running, but the recipe called for the addition of a LCD screen.
So today we installed the touch screen. However it would not work without using the supplied version of Raspberry Pi that did not have the 3D printer software.
So back to square one.
If you want one of these little computers, the you can get at the site below.
I'll take some pics in the morning and post them.

Read the article below. Then think about why Panem on the Potomac did not mobilize troops at Bundy Ranch, or other places.
They will lose.
Bing West makes absolute sense.
How soon they forget . . . but remember Kerry’s PBS interview when Judy Woodruff asked . . .
So, Kerry guaranteed the American people that he would insist on full disclosure on the part of the Iranian mullahs concerning their past military-related nuclear activities. But now we find out it isn’t part of the nuke deal — I suppose because it wasn’t really all that important, or what?????
Oh well, I guess, we can trust Barry & Kerry to look after our national security — after all, they promise to be just as careful safeguarding our national security as Hillary Clinton was during her tenure as Secretary of State!
