Green Machine Opensource Update


We are now working with the Duet 3D opensource CNC Electronics Community & Opensource Lily Pellet Extruder by Recycl3DPrint to totally redesign the CNC electronics hardware for The Green Machine so it can manage the industrial (yet affordable) output of the Lily Pellet extruder. Follow along here!

Hi guys, after an absolute abysmal performance from Dowell 3D, the 3D printing company who built the 3D printer and it's cheapest in class electronics repeatedly failing, offering zero doccumentation, support or example of being able to deal with their many dangerous and illigal products like adults, we have stripped all of their electronics off of the printer (good frame though) and are now working on a total opensource redesign/build of the electronics using the latest state of the art opensource CNC electronics from Duet 3D with their absolutely AMAZING customer support service and Recycl3DPrint who have developed the opensource pellet extruder we are working with and trying to form a partnership with to keep developing and democratising this tech for everyone to benefit from.

Progress is very slow and painful! Trying to undo the many smokingly jankey issues with the setup of the Chinese electronics and replace them with high quality components and the firmware configuration to control it all is taking weeks and you can follow along on the opensource forum at Duet 3D here:

We are trying to form a closer and closer relationship with Recycl3DPrint and Duet 3D so that we develop this large format, low cost, opensource, pellet based, bio-composite 3D printer together to really democratise this technology for the world. When we get the printer working stably together again then we will have a printer that can print in one day what it has taken me 5 months to print using the old Chinese electronics and support, we are talking about 500-1000g per hour and rows of pannels being printed one after another with a printer that can be monitored and controlled remotely, moving onto the next panel if one fails and easily resuming failed prints where they left off. We building to include the functionality that includes: feeding the pellet extruder with recycled materials from domestic packaging, RYCB colours, fireproofing additives and other additives added to the liquid-masterbatch in the hopper and a host of opensource sensors that we can interact with to control the printing. It is a very exciting stage of development!

I will keep updating but watch this space and the almost daily developments on the forum (link above) and find us at The Addit 3D printing conference this month in Bilbao.

Here I tell the story of the people and processes that won the final debate of the 200th aniversary of The Oxford Union on the motion: This House Would Go Vegan. The effort was intended to shine a light on the arguments of Dr. Sailesh Rao and Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop that insist we must include the Carbon opportunity Cost of deforestation, the carbon that can not be sequestered by forests that are cut down, in the IPCC and therefore national carbon accounting conventions. Including COC in Carbon accounting conventions shows that livestock is responsible for 87% of Global Temperature Change Potential and focusing on fossil fuels is actually speeding up climate change. The event allowed us to meet researchers at Oxford who argue for and against the position and yet we continue our work to find written arguments against the position which was won on the day. We are very Grateful to The Oxford Union for supporting this event and allowing us to use it to shine a light into this all important place. The story follows:

Challenging The Orthodoxy: Is Excluding Carbon Opportunity Cost (COC) from IPCC and therefore National Carbon Accounting fair or lawful?

Including COC in Carbon Accounting conventions shows livestock = 87% of Global Temperature Change Potential. We debated this at The Oxford Union and drew out those who can help our legal case to challenge the lawfulness of present policy. Thank you all who have helped begin this unfolding story!

Sharrow Marine Toroidal Props, Silent Light Ships & Friends

Here details an overview of efforts to bring Sharrow Marine's Toroidal Propellers to Silent Yachts, a luxury solar powered yacht design and manufacture yacht company at their e-foil riders event in Mallorca in June 20023. Sharrow's props boast 80% noise reduction and 48% fuel efficiency benefits while Silent Yachts demonstrate infinite range. My effort was to see if I could pay for a custom Sharrow Marine prop for the Silent Yachts and thus extend the latitudes where their incredible solar power train is viable in order to secure a brokerage for these extended markets and of course for these revolutionary propellers.

No matter how little you eat and how much you exercize you will not loose body fat if there is too much insulin present. Insulin levels are many times their normal healthy levels due to the environment we live in and thus we become hugely insulin insensitive which causes many health problems and makes losing weight impossible. Here are some resources about the phenomenon and how to remedy this in a healthy vegan way!

Functional Medical Resources

Here are a list of various functional medical organisations and documentary films about their work that, based on my experience, are much more successful schools of medicine for dealing with degenerative disease: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, skin disorders, auto-immune disorders etc. than aleopathic medicine (mainstream medicine). Please review the films, the reviews from some of the world's leading doctors and physicians and see for yourself. NB: we still love the mainstream trauma wards and emergency response teams and support them fully!
