food for your stomach


Fee­ding 15 sle­ep depri­ved hac­kers is not an easy task and during the AZ Resi­dency only 3 peo­ple were bra­ve enough to put their culi­nary talents to the test: Joel, Vitor and Mari­a­na. Everyo­ne agre­ed that their home­ma­de meals were awe­so­me and no bug reports were filed. Sin­ce we beli­e­ve in sha­ring, here are Joel’s deli­ci­ous open sour­ce reci­pes (in fren­ch com­me il faut):

makerbot as microscope: what we learned

Joel Belou­et has been wor­king on an art pie­ce invol­ving micro­or­ga­nisms and nee­ded a sup­port struc­tu­re for his micros­co­pe came­ra. It turns out the Maker­Bot sit­ting on our table was the solution.

At first Joel atta­ched the came­ra to the z axis and the sli­de res­ted on the build plat­form, but it soon beca­me cle­ar that it would be much bet­ter to have the sam­ple remain still and the came­ra move ins­te­ad. Inver­ting the posi­ti­ons meant atta­ching the sli­de to the bot­tom of the z axis plat­form in order to pre­vent the came­ra lens from bum­ping against it. This setup also allowed him to use the z crank as a focus mecha­nism. Con­ti­nue rea­ding “maker­bot as micros­co­pe: what we learned”
