November 2022 Build Session Report

With a couple of new members joining the ranks, the NTXBG hosted a build session at the Dallas Maker Space. Mike N, Mike D, Jerry, Justin, Fred, and Wes were in attendance working on a variety of projects.

Fred marked out the waterline and calculated his penetrable area for one of his new fiberglass hulls. Justin continued progress on his 3d printed Surcouf submarine, focusing on a 3d printed integrated canon design and drive belts. Mike N, Mike D, Jerry, and Wes worked on various projects including the new canister gun design and canon testing.

It was a highly productive get together with several visitors stopping by to ask questions and learn more. As with all good NTXBG events, we concluded with food, drink, and camaraderie – this time at a nearby pizza joint called Zoli’s.
