I have a daily habit of working on side projects, and I've come to appreciate the benefits of tracking that habit out in the open. If I'm doing work on a software project, I track that on GitHub. If it's more hands-on, I like to post an update here.

  1. I recently found these great articles by Jan Mrázek on his silicone casting process ([1], [2]). He's using a resin printer to print the molds, as well as the rigid cores that he casts the silicon over. He's also developed a process for injecting the silicone into the mold, using cheap and available tools. Good stuff!

    If you own an Elegoo Saturn, also check out the casted cleaning kit he sells.

  2. I posted a note about programmatic CAD software yesterday. I plan to post more such non-project content in the future, although I will keep posting about projects too.

    I have some more ideas in the pipeline, mainly about physical product development and prototyping topics I've been researching. Let me know what you think!

  3. Today's my first day back at work after two weeks of vacation. Got lots of ideas for what to do with this website while away. I guess now starts the slow and tedious process of actually implementing them 😄

  4. I'm still tweaking the website. Just renamed the "Projects" section to "Notes". I plan to post more content targeted at makers there, in addition to the project descriptions that I've posted so far.

    Having separate sections on the website for that seemed overly complex, so I decided to lump it all together under one section. We'll see how that develops.
