My in-depth comparative review of eight Mastodon apps for iPhone
Please boost (or share on Twitter) 🙏
Rearranged the "display" corner of my office to include an old 24x30 pixelated matrix build, recently upgraded with a #pixelblaze controller. I plan to remain in this exact spot for a *very* long time (or until the power goes out).

Come join us in the chat for a chill evening, talking about hardware n stuff!
Happening at 11pm CET / 5pm EST!
Set yourself a reminder in the YT link below.
In a bit under 24 hours, @firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be talking about nerdy electronics stuff, on the very first stream of the series!
Set a reminder, and come join us... I'm really looking forward to it, and I hope you are too!
I thought it might be too small to hold the string lights, but the 3D printed stellated icosahedron worked out well. Like the previous builds, this shape is printed with all 20 faces flat on the print bed, then folded along (0.4mm thick) edges and secured with zip ties. I used thin enameled wire to pull and hold the two halves together along the final fold.

I'm looking forward to this a lot, and I hope to see lots of you there! 🥳
Just uploaded the model to the printables.com website: https://www.printables.com/model/203454-folding-stellated-dodecahedron
Printed a stellated dodecahedron with the folding 3D print technique I got from Chris Miller. Each face prints flat and edges fold to the dihedral angle to form the polyhedron. Sides (and obligatory addressable LED string) are held in place with small zip ties.
It's printed in clear PETG at 0.2 mm layer height. Wall thickness 1.5mm. Joined edges are 0.4mm thick. I printed it first with PLA, but flexing the edges more than a dozen or so times while inserting the LEDs broke them. PETG is sturdier.
Finally revisiting this project. Waiting on some new capacitive touch sensors to try, so I thought I'd write a new pattern to take advantage of the rings.
I mapped all the "connections" between rings, randomly switch to a new ring & change direction.
Hey Southern California Makers, Maker Faire Orange County is coming this September 10!!! 🚨🚨🚨 They're looking for exhibits and sponsors now. I'm already thinking about what I might wear... (👗💡🤔)
My diverting afternoon build was laser-cutting and assembling a cover from opaque metallic and translucent black acrylic sheet for @bradanlane's super fun LumosRing LED board.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
