Re: Destructible Armor?
Guilty as charged... with one of my very first posts no less. Still have not done squat with the piezo sensors, even though I have plenty of solid surfaces on which to attempt multilateration position calculations (I should buy some decent op-amps and a few more breadboards while I'm still thinking about it).

Although it would probably easier to just use a thin sheet of stiff/fragile plastic in a vacuum mold.
**Unfortunately the extruder barrel and tip I bought are a lead bearing brass, and I already have enough mental problems...
Please pardon the pedantry... and the profanity... and the convoluted speech pattern...
