I was absolutely honored to meet #mit President Rafael Reif, but even more honored to have had the chance to present the Mohammed bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity to an amazing audience of thought leaders and #solvers at the @solvemit event in Boston last week. Please follow @make4prosperity or visit www.makingprosperity.com to learn about this amazing initiative!
The anti-lathe: a 3d printer with a rotational axis. Tfw crammed into the last week of classes... Also tfw no gcode interpretation/generation so everythings been hand scripted. Notably printer boards are for scrubs so we have a bunch of disparate motor controllers, and rpi and an arduino (analog inputs cuz real people analog to digital chips are for n3rds) (or people who plan far enough in advance to buy them). Interestingly, at about an inch and a half from axis you begin seeing striations from stepper resolution.
