STEVE – New chassis, 3D printing, fresh electronics!

IMG_20151122_133544Plenty has happened since our last post, and most of it can be summarized with the following picture.

Yup, lots of wires. New body, too. With my 3D printer back in service, cases were printed for the electronics, along with new wheels all around. These new wheels add around an inch of ground clearance, and better off-road traction.

As well, the first shipment of new parts has arrived: a USB WiFi adapter, an ultrasonic range sensor, H-Bridge motor controller, 9-DOF IMU and a temperature probe.

3D Printing, Engineering, Germany and more [Life Post]

8 months between posts is possibly a record on this site. That isn’t to say nothing interesting happened during all that time. Here is a quick recap to keep this site going:


This summer I studied German for 5 weeks in Germany. The entire trip was documented in great detail over here: danjoannis.com/heidelberg

Video Projects

A few videos have come out on my YouTube channel, some technical ones and a more artistic one to play with my new DSLR.

It seems someone made (another) viral video of their 3d printer playing the Imperial March, so here’s my take on it.

 3D Printing

I’ve been putting more time into my Ecksbot, and keeping it maintained and improving print quality. I’ve expanded my filament collection thanks to Matt Durr, and been doing some work with original creations.


Ikea Roller Blind Mounts

Last week I uploaded my first public design to Thingiverse – I hope to create and share more projects soon!
