mumptaiis there someone (ab)using milkymist soc for an robotics application?15:07
wpwrakthe buttons are finicky. yesterday, i made one from wood. nominal dimensions all are perfect. but the pusher plate is still a little too thick. grmbl. seems that it's getting time for me to enter the wonderful world of acrylic ...15:37
rohwpwrak: hey.. buttons for which device? the labtool?16:15
wpwrakfor M1 :) i find the idea of gluing together those stacks of discs mildly offensive ;-)16:16
rohheh.. you could also use a lathe, and the polish the pieces...16:17
wpwrak(the lab switch uses panel-mounted buttons. perhaps not ideal, but it works :)16:17
wpwrakhmm, step 1: buy lathe ? :)16:18
wpwraknaw, what i need to do is get me some acrylic. i think i have enough control to get the shape and size i need, but wood isn't great for thicknesses around 1 mm or less16:19
wpwrakat least not the wood i'm using16:19
wpwrak(my wood: just cheap pine from the next "baumarkt")16:22
kristianpauli printed my M1 buttons, i cant complain to date18:02
wpwrakyou lucky owner of a 3D printer :)18:15
wpwrakphew. finally. with the pusher plate ground down to 0.8 mm, it works.20:07
kristianpaula picture could help us to clarify your emotions :)20:34
kristianpaulsb0: how went arduino workshop?20:41
