Howdy all

Post by mad13mark » Thu Dec 06, 2018 7:00 am

Skills Collector here.

I've been getting some time at work with a robot mounted atos/tritop system, scanning large aerostructures for shims before joining.
Much in the way of really nice gear there. Fun conversations with really smart folks developing new metrology equipment/technology too.
Managing to learn a bit too.

A couple years back, won an auction and added a surplus metronicsys flying spot CMM to my personal toys.
Reverse engineering that beast since it's sans software, and the licence is at least 20x what I paid for the hardware.
Eventually I'll get good enough scans to feed parts to my delta-printer.
Looking at some surplus galvo type scanners to play with lately.
Always looking for hardware and optics, broken or not, to fix or teardown to learn from. Got some old survey gear next in line for that.
I share (some of) the teardowns with my kids. My oldest is into tearing apart anything with a gear or wire in it. The twins.... aren't picky.
Most of the fun is getting to be their own personal "how it's made" show.

More fun running the sound board than being in front of the cameras... Definitely a back-stage kidna guy.
