In a quick one day build, I made a 3D printed wire bending machine. I need a bunch of copper wire bridges with a specific shape, and this machine really makes fast work of it! And it can bend other shapes too…
The STEP and STL files are here:
(continued from part 1)
Time to make some drawings! I took some rough measurements and built a CAD model, to be able to plan out the parts for the conversion:
While compiling my bootloader that I wrote for AVR32, I noticed that the binary size varied between two different computers, using the same version and project.Continue reading “GCC – Linking order affects binary size?”
In this post, we will write a python script for FreeCAD that generates planetary gear assemblies.
This is only a short post, mostly to remind myself. When writing code for microcontrollers, memory usage is often a concern – both for flash and for RAM. Currently I am using an AVR32 processor with 512kb flash and 64kb RAM, which is plenty for a lot of applications, but in some cases particularly the RAM can become thin. Fortunately there are multiple ways to monitor memory usage, and figure out where the memory is used:
Quick one-day build: I had too many ER collets rolling around in the drawer, time for a little bit of cleaning up. I designed a simple collet tray in ViaCAD and printed it on the delta printer:

After years of pushing my little X2 Mini-Mill to the limits, and trying to cut aluminium on my large router table, it became clear that I need a bigger machine, that can handle metal with decent precision. And of course it has to be CNC, and it should be a capable beast. Fast, precise, versatile.
This is Code Make Share, a site dedicated to software and hardware projects, tool making (both SW and HW), thoughts on methodologies, and how to improve the creation processes. The purpose of this site is to collect and document my various projects as they progress. I also aim to back-fill past projects, and document the long-winded recursion I went through to build the tools to make more tools, to make even more tools, to eventually build something…
