    K40 Whisperer macOS Package

    Packaging of Scorchworks K40 Whisperer as an macOS Application. The official K40 Whisperer and instructions are at Scorchworks K40 Whisperer. This fork is merely to add packaging for macOS systems, creating a clickable ‘Applicaion’ that can be installed on any macOS system. This eliminates having to run K40 Whisperer from a Terminal prompt.

    K40 Whisperer is an alternative to the the Laser Draw (LaserDRW) program that comes with the cheap Chinese laser cutters available on E-Bay and Amazon. K40 Whisperer reads SVG and DXF files, interprets the data and sends commands to the K40 controller to move the laser head and control the laser accordingly. K40 Whisperer does not require a USB key (dongle) to function.”

    VW Spark Plug Holder

    Buying a 3D Printer has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not just because I love to make things, but it’s sheer usefulness in making things that are otherwise hard to find, obsolete, or where the shipping for a $1.50 part is… lets just say a lot more than you would think.

    The United States v1.2.0 Testing

    I’ve been poking at an updated version (1.2.0) of The United States iPad app. The last release was in 2014 and Apple sent me a message that it was going to be removed from the App Store unless I updated it. I don’t really make any money off the $0.99 price tag. It used to be enough to pay for the developer account but has dropped off over the years. Could be I’m not a great app/software markerter too.
