My projects

Here I post my own projects, which I do in my free time. Most of them I do without any financial reward, just as a hobby, for my own need, as a help to my close family or because of an interest in a new technology or tool.

Rebelix X2/S Dual Upgrade

Submitted by Stopka on Sun, 06/12/2022 - 00:13

It's been a few years since i last upgraded my 3D printer. During this time a lot of new printer features were invented and several parts got cheap enough for me. Also my printer was havilly used and few parts started to show that thay are worn out. It's time for a bigger maintenance.

Web of Štádlerová atelier

Submitted by Stopka on Sat, 02/26/2022 - 10:28

I created a web presentation for architect Michaela Štádlerová. Design is based on her printed portfolio. I liked the pure technical approach of it and wanted to bring the same design on web. Therefore design is based on large white areas with nice and clean typography. A selected font makes an important role together with simple black color accented by blue details. All this brings viewer's focus to drawings, models and other images on the page.

FediSearch: Search people on Fediverse

Submitted by Stopka on Fri, 01/07/2022 - 16:43

I love opened and federated technologies, so I was looking for opened social network. I wanted someting that works the same as E-mail does. Everybody can choose if his E-mail account will be hosted on Gmail or for example on Yahoo or if he builds his own E-mail server. Because it doesn't matter where man signs up. Message from user on one provider will find it's way to to mailbox of other user on different provider.

Dimmable bed lamp

Submitted by Stopka on Tue, 10/19/2021 - 15:51

I bought a new pair of shelves above the bed. Nothing special, just Ikea. But right after mounting them on the wall I knew, that I also need to add a lamp in form of a LED strip under them. And If I say a lamp, I mean a dimmable smart lamp connected to my home system.

Elevator component

Submitted by Stopka on Sun, 05/02/2021 - 23:16

I was asked to print a replacement for a broken part of an elevator. I don't know where exactly this piece fits on actual elevator, but it seems to be a cover of an emergency telephone speaker.

Originally I wanted to do it my traditional way. First scan the piece using ordinary 2D scanner. Then trace outlines in Inkcape to get vector paths. Export paths to Openscad and there use several extrusions, differences, joins and other operations to create a model. 

Mkinitcpio tpm2 encrypt

Submitted by Stopka on Thu, 10/29/2020 - 21:44

All my personal and company computers are powered by Arch Linux with encrypted storages. This setup brings an inconvenience of entering two passwords on startup. One unlocks the storage encryption, second logs me to my user account. Isn't there a way to unlock the system volume automatically? Mobile phones for example also encrypt their storages and still we don't have to enter a password during boot.

Logo for Pardubice summer camp 2020

Submitted by Stopka on Sun, 08/09/2020 - 14:00

It's here again. The Pardubice summer camp i getting closer and closer ang again I was asked for designing a new T-shirt logo. Every year childern get a souvenier in form of an original themed T-shirt. This year, the theme of the camp is about scientists travelling around the world and distributing a new vaccine to cure an epidemic  virus.

Node FlerTop

Submitted by Stopka on Sun, 03/15/2020 - 18:13

For year I am using app, which advertises for me products on Fler automatically. First, I made an Opera extension, later I switched to Chrome and so I ported the extension to Chrome. But web evolved a lot and my extension is not working properly anymore. Fixing it seems to be too difficult.

Logo LDT Pardubice 2019

Submitted by Stopka on Tue, 12/03/2019 - 22:56

Again, I was asked to create a logo for the upcoming Pardubice summer camp. This year children are going to help alien visitors in returning to their home planet. Because children will get these t-shirts on the very end of the camp thus on the hapy end of the story, the logo pictures the moment of goodbyes and successful departure of space friends to their home.

Web and logo Petra Šípková

Submitted by Stopka on Thu, 02/28/2019 - 16:59

I am running my mom's web sites for years now. In fact these are two webs, both presenting her art skills using photogallery of her creations. One web is presenting my mom as talented florist, the other one shows her as jewellery maker.

Websites were based on CMS Drupal version 7, now i decided to migrate these to Drupal 8. On that occasion I also made new theme based on modern frontend framework Bootstrap 4.

3 axis gimbal

Submitted by Stopka on Sat, 02/09/2019 - 21:39

It's a while I last did some hardware project and I had an idea of building a gimbal in my head for some time now. And suddenly I discovered somebody who was selling brushless gimbal motors for cheap. That was the first impuls. I ordered these motors and started to study what is needed to control the gimbal and started to design the construction.

Logo + Web skorpil.cz

Submitted by Stopka on Fri, 02/01/2019 - 17:26

After 6 years of using domain skorpils.cz, a skorpil.cz domain got free. Hurray, I registered it immediately and transfered all my services on it. With new domain I wanted also refresh my website running on this domain.

I migrated all the data to newer Drupal 8 (previous web was based on Drupal 7) and created new look based on Barrio library. Barrio is so called base theme, it helps to integrate Bootstrap 4 frontend framework to Drupal and so speeds up the development.

Logo LDT Pardubice 2018

Submitted by Stopka on Tue, 04/17/2018 - 21:09

Traditionally the main price at our Pardubice summer camp is a colourful t-shirt with a logo representing the theme of the year. In the year 2018 was the camp themed to pirates, so as usual I sat to my PC and made few proposals.

Sweets cutters

Submitted by Stopka on Tue, 03/27/2018 - 03:38

Before christmas 2017 we had LDTPardubice meeting and I wanted to bring there some traditional czech christmas sweets, but in original shape. In shape of the LDTPardubice logo. In the same time, my girlfriend was visiting  her friends in Soria - Spain and had similar idea: czech sweets in shape of the Soria horse.
