The build is almost finished, all I need to do is build the extruder and get host software running on my Mac or Wintel box.
Instead of doing the build (like I planned) I’m spending a lot of time sitting after knee surgery. I do a lot of my hacking/tinkering either standing or sitting on the floor, neither of which has been much of an option for the past few weeks. Deep knee bends (aka “catcher bends”) caused my knee to make a bad noise, the doctor agreed it was bad and to stop making that noise until surgery. Surgery probably fixed it, but now I have ~3 weeks of sitting and taking it easy on my knee.
I’m posting photos to flickr as I make progress.
