So, let me know if you think this diagram is understandable for you...

I also have a pdf if you want (it will expire so let me know if you want it again)

Made a propagation station from various bits. Hopefully I can get this Thai basil to sprout roots, seems to just be wilting so far.

Assembled the prototype of my electric violin, there's quite a few things to change and improve, but it's good enough to start putting together the electronics and software.

I've been working on this on and off (mostly off) for over two and a half years, so it's really nice to have something together and playable.

My cat has a tendency to eat his dry food so fast that he doesn't chew, and throws it up shortly after. My current way of slowing him down is requiring one ding per nugget.

I'm growing some beans, and decided I ought to stake them yesterday, as it was pretty windy, and they were flapping about.

Looked a bit scruffy, so I printed some angles to hold them in triangles, based on wherever I had stuck them in. Think it looks quite cool with each a different triangle.

It's fun to think of something and finish it in a single afternoon.

I've been wanting to design a keyboard for a while, and finally made a start today.

It's strongly inspired by Daktyl and Daktyl Manuform, and will probably end up looking fairly similar to them.

I've based the angles off of measurements from my hands, and the test prints feel pretty good. Looking forward to printing a larger test tomorrow.

Phew, all still works after assembly.
It's all super-glued and siliconed, so would have been pretty disastrous if it didn't.

I never finished the automation part, but with spring arriving, and plants coming back to life, I thought I'd pick it back up.

I've started work on the water level sensor to get the reservoir barrel installed.

Bridging really doesn't seem like it should work as well as it does.

Anyone interested in an NSynth Super?

I might be building one for a family member, and it would make sense to buy components for couple more to get up to MOQ on the PCB etc. EU shipping only.

I could probably provide them fully-assembled but also as some kinds of kits if anyone wants that. Let me know in DM or reply, RTs appreciated too! :)

I'm quite pleased with how this one came out. I wanted it to look like a group of creatures, and I think it looks like a crowd of people if you squint.

This is my second time doing generative art, I don't love the outcome, but I had fun.
