In the current situation - there has been an increase in the number of things delivered rather than heading to the shops. Being a building with two flats - and two doors - but just one house number…

Picked up the new mavic mini to test - thinking it might be a good training drone for the kids. First test was only a couple of minutes - limited free time as always. Three images - first taken at…

When you have a family that is interested in horses, or when you have a family that has gone so far that they end up buying a horse, then you end up doing things you never expected to do :) One of the…

Way back - when snapmaker was first on kickstarter - I joined in. Since it took a long time - I ended up with a 3d printer way before the snapmaker arrived. So I've never really had an interest in the…

One of the things I struggled with when testing the star adventurer is that here in south Norway - the latitude is somewhere between 59 and 60° north. That means that the tracker is pointing 60° up…

Youtube's algorithm recently surfaced a whole bunch of videos on photographing landscapes under the stars (particularly the Milky Way). I've played a bit with this before - but decided it would be…

Back before I got the prusa mk3 printer - I was using octopi on a raspberry pi zero w to run octopi with the pi camera v2. Up until recently - I have been using the prusa only via the SD card. But - I…

Most of the 3d printing I am interested in is functional prints. However - sometimes a model sticks out as something really worth printing. The MakerBot T-Rex skeleton is one such. For ease of…

MMU2 The multi material unit v2 from Prusa (MMU2) was recently released - and for those of us that pre-ordered it way back when it was announced - it's actually started arriving. I assembled mine on…

The model A fairly long time ago I found and printed this model: Celluar Lamp. I even scaled it up in size - just to see if I could print it. The lamp So - then of course the next question arose…

Found this model of a star decoration on Thingiverse. Did a quick print run and instead of using a string of LED lights just grabbed a handful from the drawer and a small buck converter. The converter…

To move forward with the Dalek build - the next step is to start work on priming and painting the parts. Before I started that I decided to have a test run. I grabbed Om Nom from thingiverse and…

When working on some models (both kit and 3d printed) it helps to have a turntable to get access all around without having to touch the model. Ths helps when building, painting and especially when…

So the Dalek needs to be able to play back Dalek noises. I did wonder about arduino, wave shields etc - but I decided on a simpler approach. I'll give it a bluetooth audio receiver and just use my…

I picked up the transparent (or natural) filament today - so I could print off the light covers (ears). That means all parts from the model are now printed. I can now position the lower main body…

Printing progress. Lots more parts printed. I have run out of blue so some are red. I've also run out of red - so the skirts will be in black. All that leaves now is the ears - they need to be in…

From what I can see - it looks like the model I'll be building is a Time War Dalek - 2005

Did some digging - and have found several voice modulators for arduino out there that can make you sound like you're a dalek. Some of them also do the lights control. Some mention the wave arduino…

The Dalek build has been started. The base front and back parts have been printed. They show the footprint of the finished model when placed together: Oddly - the quality on the front (printed first…

While I was digging for some inspiration for a new 3d model I happened across the Accurate Dalek Model by user Audrey2. Accurate Dalek This brings back memories of being terrified as a kid by these…

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.

Introduction between a norweigan fjord horse and a halfling to see if they could share a paddock. The introduction went well - they now keep each other company in the paddock every day
