Evolution of a Blog
This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Terraforming Mars and 3D Hubs - Part 2 - Materials
The green tiles will get printed with the green stuff (obviously)! The off-white will be used for the tiles that are predominantly surface terrain as I expect the look and feel to be able to take advantage of the filament characteristics.
The challenge will be the mining tile that has both structure and terrain.
Finally, the tiles that are primarily architectural will be done in a "standard" filament. I am using some PET as I have been liking it lately from a printer perspective and wanted to see how it takes to being painted. In the future I would probably be more likely to just us PLA.
