So cool. An unbelievably generous project. Saw the final products at NOVA MakerFaire yesterday. Downloaded and laser engraved the sine quadrant this morning. Looks great. Just found the Astrolabe. Everything looks fairly easy to make with my laser, but I don't have a 3D printer. So will need to convert the alidade and rule to flat format components for laser cutting out of acrylic. Seems simple enough. Thanks. Hope to get a few hours to construct it very soon.

Hi, beautyful project! we are a FabLab in Austria and just stumbled across your project after having seen it on the page of a German retailer. So we wanted to give you a heads up - it seems a bit suspicious to us that exact same parts are sold commercially here:

Ha! That's one I have not seen before, Thanks for the link. It does look as if they used files from my Astrolabe Generator software as a base to work from. Totally above board, All my work is CC licensed, and in any case the purpose of the software is to make things like that possible, I'm not claiming any rights over the files it creates, so commercial use is fine in this case. Thanks for being alert.
