Workshop update for May 15th, 2012

Posted on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we continue to prepare for the Bay area Maker Faire. We also made the workshop video today instead of Thursday, it’ll be about Maker Faire of course. If you subscribe to our YouTube channel you might even be able to preview the video early.

On the design side we continue to adjustment an unnamed project for a final revision. We had some issues with clearance on the rotary encoder knobs and some headers.

We are pushing the Part Ninja firmware for a release. The testing functions have been rewritten to be more modular, and easier to maintain. This will be followed with documentation on how each test is conducted, and the formulas used to determine key values.

In the office we did the payroll cause it’s the 15th, and added Evola to our distributes wiki list.
