I just uploaded the fourth video in my beginner series. What a great application for designers.


I am looking for a good way to synchronize my Joplin on Android. I was using nextcloud but that blew up with an Ubuntu update. I have my desktops syncing to my NAS but my android app can't use smb.... πŸ€”

I recently reset my laptop and compiled a list of my must have apps. It seems that I love 😊

Some encouraging news, my YouTube channel made it to 1,500 subscribers today. I use it to help explain how to use including and . I mostly make stuff with 3D printing and CNC routing (using the excellent )

I published the second video in the beginner series for the excellent youtu.be/M_lDwWaB4Jc

The excellent FreeCAD released 0.19.1 this week. It continues to improve.

I needed a desk caddy so I thought I would put that scrap plywood to good use. If course using the brilliant and the MPCNC youtu.be/dLaDxMH9jjc

I made a video to demonstrate how to create assemblies and animations of models in . The brilliant FOSS packages work great together.

I am finding the synergy between the fantastic FOSS and the incredible FOSS to be amazing. The fact that I can incorporate anything I create in freecad into a blender animation or render is fantastic.

Some freecad assembly4 love. I hope this helps some people to get to grips with this tool.


I upgraded Ubuntu and my nextcloud snap install. The upgrade killed the nextcloud install. I couldn't get it to work after that. I guess a fresh nextcloud install is on the cards 🎴


A new video showing how to render the fantastic FOSS Freecad models in the equally fantastic FOSS Blender πŸ˜‰

I am working on a new video that will demonstrate how to carve a 3 colour sign on the cnc router. It's fun so far.

I have been working on some arduino projects, wifi enabled using node mcu and mqtt. I really must improve my soldering skills.

After much ado, I was able to recover the windows 10 computer thanks to a mixture of Linux and a windows installation USB drive πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

My last ditch attempt at recovering the windows 10 blue screen NT_File_sytem is to build an install USB and see if it can repair itself πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ I tried using some Linux tools but it changed nothing. Good news is the data is still all there and recoverable through Linux.

Went into work to do payroll on quickbooks... Blue screen (stop error: NTFS File_system) ok, let's repair.. Windows asks what keyboard are you using? Then causes the keyboard and mouse to freeze πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

I have been getting some crashes with my latest version of blender... Time to upgrade again. Hold my beer.... πŸ˜‰

I've been thinking about labeling my larger tools with qr codes that describe where they are so I don't keep losing them between the basement, garage and loans.


I created a new video for the brilliant FreeCAD about doing boolean operations. What an excellent piece of free software!
