Copal Motor Mounts 2.0

Turns out i needed to tweak the design of my previously posted motor mounts, the original mounts were too high and when i changed the base height it loosened up the pressure that was being put on the motor and keeping it in place, so i went with a fully enclosed design that the motor just slips into and is nice and snug.

simple and it works... what more could ya ask for?

Motor Mount

Simple friction based mount for copal motors (used here on 30's will also fit 60's) ... currently i don't see the need for a top piece to hold the motor in place, it's wedged in there pretty good, but there is room to mount a top plate in the future if needed.

designed in sketchup and printed with my Thing-o-Matic Makerbot.

Kinect SDK is here!!

Microsoft just announced the availability of their SDK for Kinect and Windows 7. You can use the free Kinect SDK with the free Visual Studio Express to build cool Kinect apps on a Windows 7 PC. If you’re not using Windows, you can still do great stuff with the Kinect (Kinect Hacks keeps track of many cool open source Kinect projects, and you can find our posts about Kinect right here).

With Microsoft’s Kinect SDK, you’ll be able to write Kinect apps using C#, VB, C++, and possibly other .NET languages. It will also support multiple rendering engines so the awesome visuals you create have somewhere to appear: DirectX, XNA, WPF, etc.
