    Hi all. This is really to just catch any convo that's needed that may not necessarily be quite as focussed as in the trello boards (which can be a little unweildy for discussion), github issues and saves on emails.

    Something I was going to point out. I believe there has been activity on the "Controller Board" ticket. The board in the machine at the moment has certainly had some activity on it
    There should be a due date on that ticket at which point the current controller board is declared problematic and should be replaced

    @ajfisher
    I think that's a fair point. What do we think is a reasonable period. 2 weeks to declare it no good?

    AngusG just mentioned a couple of interesting points about Jon Oxer's laser cutter. I've updated the Trello Controller card

    @mage0r Do you know what sort of flow sensor is in there as I will go get a spare and I will rewrite this code as you mentioned would be an "arvo's" activity the other day. I reckon it will only take that long to attack
    John Spencer
    @mage0r
    I think it's a standard adafruit one
    Pretty sure Gav had a spare one that was in with the rest of the laster cutter for a while

    Oh right - might have a look in the box on Sat when I'm in. If not I'll order one from John

    Would someone please send the details on the new laser tube: Manufacturer or Make, Model, Datasheet, and who was the seller?
    GeoffLethbridge
    @GeoffLethbridge
    I am looking at making a page on the wiki for the info on the upgrade. http://www.hackmelbourne.org/wiki/project:cchs:laser_cutter:technical_details

    @GeoffLethbridge I'm not sure - possibly ping Gil or maybe ask on Committee list what was purcahsed the last time around?

    @ajfisher Hi AJ, do you have a copy of the current firmware? If so would you please send me a copy? I would like to reverse engineer some documentation.

    So current on the interlock arduino is on the resources drive at CCHS. For the controller, I am under the advice that this is currently being used: https://github.com/CCHS-Melbourne/LaserCutter

    @GeoffLethbridge
    @ajfisher According to the laser tube supplier, the operating requirements for the laser tube are on a yellow Caution sticker that is on the tube. One thing that keeps showing up is an air hose pointed at the laser lens. Is this something that is missing from our laser?
    ajfisher
    @ajfisher
    That's definitely something I'm not familiar with @mage0r any ideas?

    @GeoffLethbridge
    @ajfisher You can see an air pump in the pic of our laser cutter on the following page: http://www.hackmelbourne.org/wiki/project:cchs:laser_cutter:technical_details?do= If you look around at other laser cutters, an air pump is often included.
    GeoffLethbridge
    @GeoffLethbridge
    I've added a card re "adding an air pump" for consideration.

    @ajfisher "So current on the interlock arduino is on the resources drive at CCHS." How do I access this drive?

    I have been watching the trello board for about a week or so and I've noticed there has been no activity for the past couple of months... Is the project abandoned, or the trello page is outdated?

    I am Dalibor on trello...

    @ajfisher
    @Ubica Will be updating things this week. We're about to go through a bunch of tests
    Ubica
    @Ubica
    @ajfisher I would like to help with whatever I can... I've looked at the trello api I could initially do the tasks that would update the status of the project on the web site
