Workshop Update for October 1st, 2012

Posted on Monday, October 1st, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we fly back from the awesome New York Global Geek Tour 2012. Expect lots of pictures, reports, and videos during the week.

We modeled and rendered the Smoke Tester. It took longer than usual as we had to model some of the components ourselves.

The VFD tube holder board development continues. We had issues with the tube pads overlapping. We fixed this by offsetting each pad a little bit, as shown in the picture.
