Fusion 360 For Makers is full of pretty pictures and is a great resource to help people new to Fusion 360 get a leg up on what they can do and brief intro in the app features. As Fusion 360 is under constant development, the book will be only as good so long as the UI doesn’t dramatically change. Recommended to buy if you have a 3d printer and need to create your own models to print.
Stupid Remote v4 has been released, changes include new docs, audited dependencies and working Swagger UI.
OpenCV is an Open Source computer vision library that, among other things, can recognize faces, including eyes and smiles.
I set out a few weeks ago to build some prototypes with the library, to get an idea of how it works. I have created 3 prototypes, one that detects faces, one that detects eyes and one that detects smiles. All the projects are on GitHub here and they all use Python 3.
In February I finally got a Prusa i3 Mk3 3D printer that was ordered in December, a very late Xmas gift. I had struggled with a MakerBot Replicator previously, but based on my research, I had high hopes for the Mk3.
This is the story of the first few weeks of 3D printing and what I learned.
