Massive Maker Expo high-five to Conestoga College for supporting us with funds and some of their makers. I stopped by to see their year-old makerspace on Doon campus last week. But today, my friends, today they’re coming to you because you’ll be at Maker Expo at Kitchener City Hall and so will they.
The Conestoga IEEE crew. 65 members strong if I recall. What a nice bunch of guys.
Tarek had these expensive servos in the forearm.
This is a 3D printable humanoid robot from an open source design. Tarek is using metal-gear servos that are a lot more expensive than the el-cheapo versions.
Whole lotta printing going on here.
Tarek said this geared shaft in his right hand was printed with 100% infill. Super strong. I think this is part of the elbow or shoulder joint.
Roger delves into the secret cabinet.
Can you imagine what this will look like when they get the whole body done. Uncanny valley, ho!
I think Jason stopped by here to try and get some homework done.
When I asked the guys what the most wanted for their makerspace, I got a quick response: another Ultimaker 2! This one runs almost non-stop.
I’m a sucker for LEDs. More so for matrices of LEDs
Great banner designed by Verdi.
Verdi and the banner he designed. Verdi is a diyode member from Guelph. Double your makerspaces for double your fun.
Now *that’s* what I like to see: print/post/prosper!
Roger showed me this great…
spider-bot. Nice powder-coated aluminum chassis. 3 servos per leg. Many DOF.
Tarek and Vignesh working on the forearm.
The guys assured me they were going to have this working by the Expo. Can’t wait to see it.
and school work waits for no Expo.
Sarmd sourcing parts for his linear power supply.
Thanks for letting me hang around the space, guys. Very cool.
I learned to stick weld at Conestoga a long time ago. I reckon I just learned a few more things at Conestoga this week.
