rStep PCB v3

November 20th, 2010

After a failed order (and 2+ months of waiting) for a PCB order from dorkbot, I reordered the PCB through seeedstuio. $40 shipped for 10 PCBs was great, but they ended up shipping me 18 (must have had extra space on the panels). I paid an extra $10 for the white soldermask (I’m so sick of green. I never want to see a gree PCB). A few weeks later, I got them.

For those of you who have stopped following my CNC posts, I’ve still be active working on an open-source project called rStep. Yes, the r is for Reza. I’m egotistical that way. Anyhow, it’s been a really interesting experience and I’ve gained a lot of insight in running an open-source group. Last I checked, there were 78 members subscribed to the mailing list, and we have about 1/2 dozen active participants who are submitting code, testing, etc. I love seeing an idea start to become something real with people who are interested in the same stuff as I am and see the advantages to such a system. Check out the rStep page for more information.

The parts order is in place, this will be the final beta version (v3) and v4 will be a production run.

New project takes life

August 15th, 2009

I just finished a new PCB that I’ve been thinking of making. It’s general purpose car interface. I left a lot of headers on it so I can reconfigure aspects of it on the fly via jumper cables.
