Basic step in electronic devices construction is PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturing. Preparing PCBs at home is quite boring and long task. That made me think how to simplify this task. I have working CNC router (as described in CNC section of this web) and I attempted to use it in PCB manufacturing process. In this article I will describe one of two procedures I finally found out. It is based on scratching paths in covering film on PCBs and subsequent etching. Continue reading
When I finished mechanical construction of my CNC router it was time to make it alive using some electronic.
After I crashed my 2 meters wingspan CAP232 (in the middle of header image) I decided to build new improved version. Computer aided design was obvious choice. So own CNC router became actual topic again. Continue reading
Server (from the word “serve”) is computer that provides some services. But why should someone spend money and time to build and manage own server? Especially when most services are available online. In this article I describe my home server and for what tasks am I using it. Lets take synchronization and backup service as example. Dropbox offers 100GB for 99 per year. On my home server I have available more than 1200GB and electricity costs are around 40$ per year. Server can of course provide more services than backup and synchronization. Continue reading
No, it is not any sort of failed genetic experiment. I am talking about tricopter. Continue reading
In this post you can find some planes from my army.
Since I am interested in RC models and computer technology it was only matter of time to get idea to create computer controlled milling machine. Continue reading
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (around 2005 in Czech republic) there lived young boy interested in programming and electronics. Continue reading
