This combined update will cover both Wednesday and Saturdays sessions.
Another significant turnout. Work continued on the newly designed Lantern boards. These contain a number of surface mount components necessitating good lighting, steady hands and tweezers.
Meanwhile work continued on the Huxley. At the end of the evening the limit switches were installed. Commissioning would begin on Saturday.
Alexis demonstrated a SID chip based MIDI synthesizer built into an Arduino shield.
A bristlebot ran across the table
A number of volunteers double checked the wiring on the Huxley.
When power was applied everything appeared to work corrrectly. All axes turned smoothly and in the correct direction.
Thanks to everyone who attended and made these sessions a success!
