3D Printing: Knurled brass inserts using a heat gun
August 31, 2017
In my current quest of building the Hypercube Evolution, one of the early and critical steps is putting in the knurled brass inserts into the 3D printed parts. These inserts are the receptacle for screws/bolts that would otherwise chew up the plastic you’ve printed. The standard instructions are to use a soldering iron but I wanted something with a little more accuracy so I used a heat gun. It works well so I thought I’d share a quick tutorial video I made!
Schedule change & new format
August 17, 2015
Over the years, the posting schedule here at Snowulf.com has varied wildly. We’ve had our good times (5 posts a week) and our bad times (zero posts for months). Up until July of this year, we’ve been averaging 1-2 posts a month for the last year or more, which is very sad. As soon as I had more free time, our post rate jumped up to 5 times a week and held that for more than a month. I’m very proud to really solidly be back “in the game”, however some adjustments need to be made.
Video: Android Folder Demo
April 29, 2010
Today is another one of my Android/Video series. The video is very short, just over 2 minutes in length, and it focuses completely on the folder aspects under Android. (View in high def) I’m just going to quickly reiterate the 3 aspects of folders in Android that I covered: Standard Folders — The main purpose of folders is to create ways to “gather” your applications all together, keep them out of the way, but still easily accessible from the home screen.
Video: First impressions of the Nexus One (AT&T)
April 21, 2010
As I previously promised/threatened: more videos. Here’s my first impressions of the Nexus One after about 12 hours of playing with it. The video is short, just 5 minutes. I move fairly quick and don’t show off a lot of depth, but I’ll cover more detailed aspects down the road in separate videos. (Click to watch in high-def)
