I've been doing all my projects involving an FPGAs with Verilog, since thats the HDL I was taught in school but the thing is I've noticed virtually every project I see online is written in VHDL, for anyone who's had experience with both is it just a better language for DIY projects? would it be worth my time to learn VHDL and use that instead?
>>917139 Its pretty much the same thing. CompEng here, I was taught VHDL in a Digital Systems class that was messing around with FPGAs but in another class we used verilog for something and I remember its pretty much the same, don't worry about that. Use whatever.
From my understanding Verilog is more popular in the US and VHDL is more popular everywhere else. I think VHDL is also more appropriate for scaling when producing ASIC, but I'm definitely no expert. The thing I hate about VHDL is that you have to change everything in about 3 or more places everytime you change something.
I need help making a mouse pad for my Dad. I've been cross stitching for my holiday pressents. I'm planning one for my dad, but I want it to be utilitarian as well. How could I best create a mouse pad with my cross stitch pattern? I've seen some cheap possibilities with sanded plastics, but I want something nice for him. Does anyone else have any /diy/ gifts they are working on?
Hey there, I am looking for advice on replicating these headphones, they arent much pics I could use for reference, the little parts that hold it together wont be a problem I think, finding something to do the "earbuds" is. I am thinking about looking for some cheap headphones with similar shape and size, what should I do, /diy/? This is my first time posting, so please be kind.
Googleing it litteraly gave me enough picks to plaster my house in reference pics. So what do you mean replicating? Do you need them to actually work? An actual part for part replica? Or do you want to look like a Nazi tank commander for your video game boner stroking?
This is an odd request, but I was wondering if anyone knows of or has footage of someone crafting, shaping, carving, sanding, etc. wood that doesn't speak. To be more specific, I'm looking for footage where someone is doing something involving carpentry and not talking as if it's some tutorial.
I find it incredibly relaxing to listen to it or watch it. Something like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjxUzmZpCn4 (2:39 - 2:47 is the best part)
No idea why it soothes me, I guess I'm just weird.
It's not weird, I love watching people work that are really good at what they do. Especially carpenters. Unless they're doing something crazy like cross cutting a long plank on the table saw with their hands or leaning into a band saw too far with their fingers in line with the blade. I love working with wood for the same reason, once you figure out that math and do the setups it's smooth sailing, as long as you did the first parts right.
Try looking up build videos instead of how to build videos. Even some of the guys on YouTube who are self made instructors have videos where they just build stuff.
make the loop a coil (lots of windings) and connect it to a lc oscillator. then connect that to a freq detector that has a go-high-when-detects-freq output. then drive a counter, buzzer, bell, etc. the lc osc acts like a tuned osc that changes freq when something enters the coil.
I've always been a digital logic fag, so my analog skills are subpar. I could use some help with what some components of this circuit do. Here's what know: C1 prevents reverse flow out the input R1 biases the input The gain potentiometer controls gain by controlling the amplification factor, preventing electrons from flowing across the cathode. C2 and R4 do the same as C1/R1 for stage 2 4,5 heater C3, prevents reverse flow through the circuit C4, VR2 adjusts tone by controlling how much low-band FQ can drain to ground VR3,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>916571 C1 and R1 are an input signal filter, I think high-pass to get 60Hz and DC out of there. C2 and R4 do the same I think C3 is a coupling between the amp circuit and the tonestack/volume control to keep the two from interfering with each other (hard to explain I'm drunk) C4 you understand. Look at C1 and 2 the same way, just with fixed resistors.
R2 and R3 affect what voltage actually goes on the tubes. Look up a voltage divider and it'll give you a rough idea, not exactly the same, but the ballpark concept.
Why aren't there any reasonable 3d printers that have a 2ft x 2ft printing bay area (let's say a 1 ft height, just for shits and giggles).
> 3d printers are just for prototyping Don't mean to sound like a liberal cuck, but spending a few hundred bucks on a machine for a prototype that is actual size is more up my alley then going for a 6 inch size of the model.
Anyone have experience with increasing their 3d printer bay size?
If by "reasonable" you mean cheap, there are none that don't have shit accuracy and other problems. If by "reasonable" you mean decent quality then they are probably out of your price range. As you haven't told us your price range that makes is zero. Come back with more info, especially material and features you are looking for and maybe we can help you.
hey /diy/, anyone here ever do an install of a natural gas line? I am looking at some remote property with free gas. The problem is while it already has an old trailer with a service already installed, my whole family will move to this property and they will need to tap in to the line. How would I go about sizing the main service line to the house? Potentially long runs, its an 80 acre property and the gas well is to the side. Maybe 500-700 feet. Any ideas?
bump, holy shit if it works out I will abuse the hell out of the free gas. THE HELL out of it. Looking into a stand by generator. Like a low rpm stand by generator or a listeroid. Gas fridge and freezer. gas stove, gas hot water tank (big!), gas heaters and hell, gas lights or heating a green house with ng.
anyway, get the NG utility to do the work. long runs of underground pipe require special tools. also, tapping into the high pressure main before the meter requires the utility supplying the NG to shut the line down. typically one would use a poly pipe to run underground and the fittings are plastic welded. this is not /diy/
I'd like to design ( and then build ) my own tiny hipster house to store my lawnmower, rake and hose pipe in but have no clue where to begin. I have ideas like maybe using a shipping container half buried upright in the ground with the bit above ground being covered in reclaimed wood from pallets and some sort of protective window shutters that close over the windows to prevent immigrants form stealing my lawnmower but have no clue how to incorporate them into a blueprint.
I have no resources, I'm renting a town house and I don't own a lawnmower.
>>916426 Unfortunately for you, the man lawn mower association has made it illegal to own a lawn mower if you don't have a lawn. They did this just to stop you anon. I know because I tried to do tge same thing.
Hey, I saw this picture on 9gag some time ago and I really wanna do it on my wall, any tips? Some I can, like RHCP and too fighters and Nirvana, but the other seems kinda hard, but I don't like all those bands. I know a projector could help but I don't have one
My idea was to do the outlines with pencil and then if it's nice, use a permanent marker on it, but I'm not sure how it gets on the wall. BTW, I don't live in North America, So my walls aren't made of cardboard, they are bricks and the white cement stuff to paint on it, then the paint. I thought of using some adsive tape on the wall and then paint the outlines of it.
I got an old foot-powered sewing machine structure (the cast iron part) and plan to make a lathe out of it. But I'm having a problem and I can't seem to find a good solution due to my lack of knowledge in this area.
As the picture shows, one of the four table supporters is broken, and I don't have the broken part, nor any experience in welding. And as far as I read, it's kinda tricky to weld cast iron.
So, how can I fix it? Any ideas? It must be sturdy.
