Sailing catamaran with a workshop and 3D printer onboard in a converted berth. https://www.reddit.com/r/SailboatCruising/comments/pqrpzq/check_out_my_work_shop_i_converted_one_of_the/ (Apologies for the Reddit link, but didn’t want to link to their Instagram.)
@neauoire @rek totally makes sense. Saltwater mist is probably too harsh! I learned how to solder from some bubbleheads (submariners) and they stressed that you had to precut your components before soldering and couldn’t leave exposed component leads or wire. Their instruction really helped when years later I built a point-to-point Atreus keyboard designed by @technomancy and precut everything to fit.
@neauoire @rek @technomancy I’ll handwave over the details but when I was more enamored with crypto/smart contracts and was talking to http://project-entropy.com/ my main focus was the “makerspace on a sailboat” idea, with maybe the potential to act like the maker arm of Burners without Borders. Which is how I got into https://disaster.radio/ and I’m now planning to try and port the protocol to Esp32forth.
@mathiasx this looks like fun.
I do wonder how you keep screws from falling everywhere though…🤣
@requiem somewhere they mentioned they only use this at anchor. Cooking at sea requires a gymbal stove.. now I’m imagining a gymbal 3D printer or a whole gymbal workbench. 😂
@mathiasx it surprised me to learn that my printer happily works when inverted…
