It was a slow day. Most of the time was spent calibrating the 3D printer which was building shapes with many imperfections. The compass spinner halves printed earlier were not even flat on top so they fit together poorly. Another model should be printed in order to take a fair assessment and decide the next steps.

Parts were also gathered to start a Raspberry Pi Zero. Two ding/dent monitors were purchased in order to have inexpensive video for the computer and a spare monitor. The second may be used on a second Pi Zero if the first one proves useful as a kitchen computer. All of the parts, keyboard and video cables were already on hand.
