Experiments with 3D modelling and printing

This is my first attempt to make something with a 3D printer.

I watched 45minutes of OpenSCAD tutorials one night, then over the next couple of days I tried to create something using OpenSCAD. By my third time running the program, I was able to create the housing I needed for my power "polarity tester".

3D printing is awesome, and incredibly simple to do!

Why is Amazon recommending I buy all this Military Shite?

Amazon Recommends I buy a load of shite like tactical survival guidebooks for a post apocalyptic society

Whatever Amazon thinks of me, they've got the wrong idea! If I suddenly disappear during the night, someone better contact Chuck Norris on my behalf, as I will need rescuing from the NSA.

Margaret Thatcher


Well, she prescribed some unpleasant medicine to the British people during her time in power.  But let's face it, Britain was a sick patient at the time.  In retrospect, I think she gave us what we needed to turn the country around and succeed.

RIP Maggie.
