New Paper and Videos

I finally got around to adding in a short video of my pneumatic workbench in action here. I also added the Part 7 write-up of my Photogrammetry project here and short video of the elevation axis in motion here. Enjoy.

Two New Papers

Two new papers have been added. The first pertains to reliable computer storage and a change of philosophy I have invoked for my own data storage (U26767 Computer Backups and Reliability). The second paper is an update on my telescope project (U24933 Photogrammetry for PV Solutions- Part V). Enjoy

3-Axis Positioner

One of my clients had need for a small 3-axis fixed positioner and nothing could be found on the market to serve the needs in the time frame needed. Based upon my telescope work, I cranked out two 3-axis positioners. The fixed positioner was completed whereas the computer-controlled positioner is still in work and more a side project of my own more than anything else.

Photogrammetry Project Part IV

I’ve been rather slow in up-loading the last installment of my photogrammetry project. The write-up can be found here. This segment is largely focused on optical encoders and related topics.

Photogrametry Project Part III Added

Part III of my Photogrammetry project has just been uploaded to the site.
