The annual report 2017 of FFABW is online
November 1, 2018
The FFABW annual report for 2017 is online. Unfortunately it is only in Dutch. It has taken longer as desired due to the large amount of work that the board performs. It is not easy to meet all requirements if you have too little manpower and resources. That does not change the purpose that the foundation stands for. Expansion of the board is desirable and the volunteer vacancies are registered locally.
November 1, 2018
The activities on the forum are almost non-existent. The fourth and last notification on the forum was in April. As far as we can tell, this person is concerned with checking good causes. Just like everyone, he is most welcome. The intention is that the FFABW is transparent in all its activities. The board only expects the forum to become active at the moment that the first products market is ready. That product will then be available under the free Open Source license. That free Open Source license is still being worked on.
Getting acquainted with Linux
October 14, 2018
Do you have a PC with an older Windows version and want to know what else is possible, e.g. with Linux. Linux is an Open Source PC operating system that often runs better on older computers than Windows 10. Then come take a look during the #MakersMarket in the #fablab of the #FFABW on the Steiger 24 in Almere-Haven. There are 5 PC on which you can click around. This activity takes place on 20 October 2018 and starts between 11:00 and 16:00. Entrance is free.
Roof ridge windmill development
May 27, 2018
The roof ridge windmill can be made in a horizontal and vertical principle.
Both types are currently in the design / prototype face.
Designing these windmills is an excellent study object.
Pupils of the Technacium of Helen Parkhurst have taken on a part of this project.
They are studying the type of windmill and are working on it.
The windmill will fit into a standard frame.
These standard frames will be determined by the FFABW and will be approximately 90 x 55 x 30 cm.
The frames can be easily coupled.
Fit pieces make it run through the entire roof ridge.
There is also a shield against flying birds.
There is a sloping roof and it connects with the existing roof covering.
In a frame, 1 horizontal or several vertical windmills can turn.
The windmill module is easily exchangeable.
