Hi /diy. this is my first post and i have one simple question : Would it be possible to get (let's say) 4 pc screen; and to assemble them into a bigger screen. The problem is the multiple controller cards; and how to wire it. I don't want to buy multiple pc monitors, and i can get screens like pic related for nothing. Any idea is welcome!
>>915954 what? No you don't. NVidia and ATI both do it. http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/eyefinity# AMD pushes it more/ Windows has done this since windows 95 for normal applications.
With the 150A one you can use electrodes up to 3,2mm. With the 250 one up to 4mm maybe 5 if they dont have a thick flux. It also depends on the type and brand what amperage they need to be run on. You will be more limited with the 150A, but if thats good enough for what you want to weld, then get the 150 one and save some money.
Are they DC or AC?. I prefer AC runs smoother, no arc-blow,
check the duty-cyle. The 250 will probably have a higher one. meaning you can weld for a longer period of time with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to do some work on a small dam or a large pond at the moment it holds water but only for a limited time i want to dig out the earth in there and line it with some river clay that i have access to i also only have a bobcat to do it with what i want to know is this like the clay thinkness and other ideas
>>915772 whut? so you want to dam a stream so you can line it with something else? if so you don't need a dam you need a diversion. that being a way to divert the stream from where you are working otherwise the dam resivor will fill and the dam will overflow in a matter of minuets/hrs whatever depends how much water and how tall your dam is. would nee pictures if you want moar mabie some topographic sketch or some such shenanigans
>>915772 I am confused but if I understand you correctly:
You have a pond. The pond has a creek feeding into it (inlet) and a creek feeding out (outlet). Assuming this pond is not a kangaroo breeding ground, you will not need any permits.
Step 1) assess kangaroo situation Step 2) get permit (if required) Step 3) dig trench from inlet to outlet around existing pond Step 4) build temporary dam at inlet and outlet to prevent water from entering pond, forcing it to use trench. Step 5) wait for unbearably... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Battery is going to be a problem. A pi will take to long to boot and miss whatever it is supposed to be recording. Running it all the time will require too large of a battery to run for days/weeks like a commercial trial camera.
>>915659 You do know a new surround costs about a much as the duck tape you used to fix it right? Thats the bit that tore, the surround. They are replaceable. You make me sad. You fucked up a speaker and didn't even do it the right way. You could have at least tried to fix the surround the proper way and, even if you fucked it up, you would have tried and probably learned something. Instead you went full redneck/nigger rig on it. Thats not what /diy/ is about.
I'm new to this board and I heard a lot about Rasberry Pi. I understand it's a micro-computers but what can I do with this ? Since I don't know anything about it, where should I start to learn how to use it ?
Video is kinda outdated since the B+ but still, my point is, you can learn a lot about the Raspberry Pi and really anything else on youtube. Youtube is great for this sort of thing, search around on there.
I've already bought this bundle, that's what made me curious about all of this and made me visit this board ! I haven't read all of these magazines yet though but I feel that I need the very basics before continuing reading them. (and your video seems to be able to help me)
>>915621 Honestly, I would say the RPi is more /g/ than /diy/. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of cool embedded projects you could do with it, but you have to understand that it's an actual computer and not just a microprocessor, and is therefore more suited towards such high-level tasks (for instance, hosting your own web server or doing graphical processing). >>915626 That's not even a B+, that's a B.
I love multirotors and I have a Quadcopter that I have built myself so I am not a total noob but I am not super knowledgeable either since a friend helped me build it. The only part I really don't understand is the ESCs, my friend programmed mine and while I want to build a FPV tricopter, I don' want to have to do this. I see there are pre-flashed ESCs but I don't know if they are compatible with what I want. Do pre-flashed ESCs come with different settings that I need to be aware of?
Basically is all this stuff compatible?

>>915620 >The only part I really don't understand is the ESCs So you're comfortable setting up and tuning a flight controller like a Naze32? That's really more important than reflashing ESCs. It's not too finnicky with Cleanflight Configurator or similar, but there are a lot of steps and it's an important and surprisingly time-consuming setup.
The ESCs you chose already have SimonK firmware, so they should work great without programming/reflashing (even those that don't have multirotor firmware still work, but SimonK or BLheli improve response considerably and let you crank up the gains more). Brushless ESCs and motors can be reversed by simply swapping motor leads, make sure to check all the directions and response before you put the propellers on.
I'd also avoid the raceband transmitters, ImmersionRC/Fatshark keeps introducing proprietary shit to try and box competitors out of the market and force customers to buy new shit, and the raceband is just another example of that.
>>915649 I am not rewriting this shit on another thread, fuck off. I will however search next time before posting.
>>915665 Oh yeah I comfortable with the Naze32, not really any other flight controller. My quadcopter has a naze32 and while I use Baseflight instead of Cleanflight, its all the same really. I don't know every command you can possibly run in Baseflight, but I know enough to setup a Quad/Tri-copter.
I knew those ESCs had SimonK cause of a thread I found but what I am confused on is do I need Brushless ESCs for Brushless Motors? I found some Brushless ESCs and they are really expensive, what are they used for?
Also I didn't realize my A/V transmitter was a raceband or even realize what that is but I'll fix it and get something else. I have the Fatshark Attitude V2 for a headset.
Hello /diy/ I'm currently staying at a dormitory and next month we're moving to an apartment with my roommate. We rented the apartment and the papers we signed implied that there was a wardrobe near the entrance. However there wasn't. Instead of removing that line, the landlady (nice woman) gave us an allowance of $250 (approx.) to buy or build a wardrobe. She's gonna check the bills and pay us accordingly.
I've made an authistic drawing of the space that we're gonna place or assemble the wardrobe. The brown area is the space for the wardrobe,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Will you be able to make a built in wardrobe? That should be much easier, your first step should be to attach a frame around the alcove (2x2 should be enough). Next depends on whether you want to split it or keep it as one large wardrobe.
If you can supply pictures I could give you a simple sketch (how you want to do it will depend a little on details)
>>915617 Moreover I'd say you need a saw (what kind depends on choice of material (I wouldn't cut sheets of plywood with a hand saw and expect it to be straight but I suck at sawing)). A level is a bit of a must. A hammer or screwdriver (protip, screwdrivers require less skill (don't laugh, it's true) but some might prefer the flat head of a nail for aesthetics (there's also nailguns and jointing but for a simple and cheap solution I think those are out.
>>915472 You're kidding right? PU foam can break door frame out of wall if applied too generously.
Cement should be fine. It would contract if anything. Use more sand, to make the bulk of "passive". Still, without reinforcements (steel armature and sharp, hard rocks) it's quite fragile anyways. Maybe there are better options?
I'd look into just coating the inside of it with something more rigid.
>>915416 Mineral oil is what most people use on wooden salad bowls or kitchen pencils. Don't use baby oil because there are fragrances and other crap added to the mineral oil. Mineral oil does not dry. And requires additional coats to protect the wood.
Another alternative is to use boiled linseed oil and allow it to dry thoroughly. Then use paraffin wax to coat the wood. Once dried the BLo is non-toxic and will harden the wood. The paraffin wax creates a nice smooth waterproof seal.
Hey DIY, do any of you know what the mechanism in the aperture (pic related) is called ? Any suggestions on what else I could look up on google are greatly appreciated. I've googled Aperture mechanism and images come up of what it looks like but I would like to know what it's called because I want to do it myself for a project... If that's impossible, do some of you know where I can get such a mechanism cheaply? I would be really grateful. Thanks!
