Today I was incredibly fortunate to be visited by Kathleen and Mike Snodgrass. Mike has just celebrated his 70th Birthday (He doesn't look that old!) and asked everyone at his birthday party to donate a few pounds to help us!! In an amazing turn of generosity, they have been and visited me in my shed and donated £750.00!!! We are amazingly grateful for the generosity of Kathleen, Mike, their friends and their families. Truly above and beyond.
Team UnLimbited Blog
This blog documents the collaborative work by Drew Murray and Stephen Davies as volunteers in Britain, we collaborate on our voluntary efforts under the name of Team UnLimbited. Our R&D efforts include developing new devices, research into materials and functional improvements. All our work is shared as open source for the benefit of all, for non-commercial use.
I'm absolutely over the moon to finally reveal that because of the work me and Drew Murray have been doing with Team UnLimbited I have been nominated, and shortlisted for the finals of Channel 4's shed of the year. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/…/year-2017-fin…/team-unlimbited/

We have just updated our UnLimbited arm to v2.1. It now has a smoother rounded cuff for comfier use, we have also included a cleaned version of the phoenix palm that has the word EXPERIMENTAL removed. The version number, together with the three key measurements and the calculated print scale% for the phoenix hand, are now stamped on the underside of the cuff for future reference.

Today I completed the first device to be created on our new BCN3D Sigma printers, printed in Colorfabb PHA / PLA.
These printers feature dual independent extruders, that allow us to do some pretty cool designs, simpler and easier than our other machines.
The device for was for a boy called Zac who requested a space theme; I think you will agree the results are pretty AWESOME !
