 +====== Lately down at the local Hackerspace... (2011) ======
 +
 +**angusgr** — Sun, 04/09/2011 - 2:06pm
 +
 +=====  Giant Robot! ​ =====
 +
 +The incredibly talented [[http://​georgeisat.tumblr.com|George Rose]] (link somewhat NSFW) has generously painted us a giant robot for our rear wall.
 +
 +Apparently the wheels are in motion to prep more walls, and other artists have expressed interest in helping us decorate, so there should be even more designs coming soon!

 +
 +=====  Sliding Door  =====
 +
 +Jack & Adam have built a brilliant portable wall with a sliding door, for use when the space is open. This will be welcome news to anyone who visited MHV over winter, with constant rumblings of the roller door opening and closing.
 +
 +[[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​angusgr/​6110495969/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6183/​6110495969_52bb0db923_m.jpg|IMG_8486}}]] [[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​43859044@N02/​6041536018/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6198/​6041536018_e96875f554_m.jpg|P8140454}}]]

 +
 +=====  Canberra UAV  =====
 +
 +The [[http://​www.canberrauav.com/​|Canberra UAV team]] continue to meet regularly at MHV as they work towards their entry for the UAV Outback Challenge.
 +
 +[[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​58053205@N06/​6028562437/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6149/​6028562437_b1dd930acd_m.jpg|CanberraUAV air tech test bed}}]] [[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​58053205@N06/​6029115318/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6204/​6029115318_a178d11bc9_m.jpg|CanberraUAV ground tech}}]]

 +
 +=====  Street Sign  =====
 +
 +Lost first-timers and pizza delivery men should be a thing of the past! With assistance from other members, I stencilled a new street sign for MHV.
 +
 +The stencil was made using cheap book-covering contact. It was cut out on our Roland plotter - a pen plotter modified to take a knife attachment.
 +
 +[[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​58053205@N06/​6029297694/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6137/​6029297694_730a773f7f_m.jpg|Stencil Prep}}]] [[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​58053205@N06/​6033433693/​|{{http://​farm7.static.flickr.com/​6138/​6033433693_95319a6db3_m.jpg|Driveway sign WIP}}]]

 +
 +=====  CNC Kit  =====
 +
 +Alastair has got his CNC Mill back up and running, after a motor transplant, and continues to improve it.
 +
 +Adam has continued his experiments with MHV's Roland CNC engraver, including having it cut blocks made from polymorph pellets. He also convened a workshop about the Roland, and some other members are now developing designs to cut on it, as well.
 +
