Introduction of Erwin

Recommended Posts

Hello Team,

my name is Erwin, and I just joined the "community". Ultimaker 2+ ("Oskar") just works on the fourth object of his so far short life.

"Erwin" is a fake name, but I like it since I used it for my dwarf back in good ol' AD&D-times.

I am old (financed my study of physics developing software in a language called FORTRAN :-D).

My hobby is combining analog electronics with digital and apply this to gardening challenges e.g. an intelligent and self-sufficient 4-zone watering of my greenhouse independent of any electrical power-lines. I suck at building boxes and improvise from stuff that one usually finds in the scrap box of a hobby workshop. Now I am proud owner of an ultimaker 2+ and ... tataaa ... I am turning into a semiprofessional and build boxes and clamps and gearboxes and and and  (wish ;-) ).

I am glad to be here and - of course - very excited  with all the wonderful and creative people around here. My dark side is: I am an almost dogmatic open-source promoter, and my computer runs on ubuntu :-).

Stay safe and healthy, have a great day and always filament on the spool.

Erwin

Hi Erwin, thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

Sounds you will fit right in :)

Besides the page Gr5 shared, there is also a visual overview which is daily updated right here.

Make sure to also check out our resource pages which we are also very busy updating.

If you ever have made something interesting yourself, feel free to share it with us! :)

What is it you are 3D printing now mostly?

Already started with your greenhouse or are you starting it slow with some common files you can find on youmagine?

Very curious to read more about the developments with your green house. Sounds very interesting!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
