Dutchman in Norway
Hi, my name is Marcel van der Velpen, 61 years old, married to Juliette, Dutch, but living in Norway. Started Makerspace Ringebu two years ago. Had anyone said to me: "You will work with Arduino and 3D printing within a year," I would have declared them insane. I do have a knack for electronics however. Made a lot of weird things, but mostly analogue stuff. So now I am working with Arduino things. Make a 3D printed dragline which I try to control with Arduino, and I am working with combining Arduino with my garden railroad (LGB, anyone?). Bill is the only one who was capable of explaining how things work with Arduino, so I am a follower ever since. Winter has arrived in full strength in Norway now, so I am most of the time at my mancave, working with..well.. things. Making a LUT in scale 1:96 for example (Launch Umbilical Tower, that's somethings Space age kids from my age should recognize) and working on the dragline, which is pretty much getting out of hand. "Questions I will have, yes" would Yoda say, so being part of this forum will give answers to those questions, I hope. See you around an have a nice winter holidays!
