About halfway through printing all the bits for my latest 3d printing project. Here is a pic of it so far…

Installed a heated print bed on my Kossel mini
Finally got around to installing the heated print bed on my Kossel mini. Decided I was going to need to print in ABS at some point so the heated bed would be a must.
After getting the heater installed and calibrated I decided to try a PLA print first on bare glass.
Set the heater to 65c and I let the glass warm up for a few minutes. Fired up the print and ended up with this guy who popped right of the glass once things cooled down.
Still gotta figure out how I’m going to add a cooling fan for the print that won’t cool the bed too much but that is a project for another day.
The wireless sensor network
A while back I decided I wanted to wire my house with sensors as a bit of a geek challenge. After a bit of work and some refinements I put something together with Arduinos, NRF24l01 radios and some imagination.
Here is the result.
The image links to the live page, updated once per second with all the juicy data from the temperature sensors, humidity sensors, barometric pressure sensors, voltage, power etc.
Check it out and leave a comment if you want more details on how it’s all done.

Back in the summer I spent some time in the back yard making friends with the Chipmunks.
Some 3D printed objects I made recently
Here are a few of the many 3D printed objects I’ve produced on the Kossel style 3D printer I built. Most of these prints were done over the Christmas holiday.
Finally got around to getting rid of the old markround.net blog and replacing it with a fresh start.
I plan to post various things of interest involving projects I’m working on or other interesting things.
Most recently I’ve built a 3D printer and I’m having all sorts of fun with it.
