    3D Printers

    Dont forget that the bottom layer and top layer may not be the same diameter. This is due to the first layer's "squish" amount. Many slicers (Including Prusa's Slic3r) have "elephant's foot compensation" to impact the first layer specifically, by reducing the extrusion volume for that first...

    Removing PSA Disks - Help ???

    I know some adhesives can be removed way easier with scraping type methods if you leave the glued surface in a deep freezer for awhile, or outside if it's cold (see: really cold) out. Might be worth a try!

    New Feature Created a "Question Type" post type.

    This is an example Question Type post type. The intent is that the title be a question, like "How do I prevent chips from turning into a razor blade rats nest?" Then, question type threads can mark the best answer, and be closed, much like tech support sites, etc. See how to create a...

    New Feature New Content Ratings (Like, Angry, etc.)

    Added some new content rating icons beyond just the standard "Like" to give us some more feedback. This tool also lends itself to rating posts overall, which I am looking into with regard to Tool Reviews, etc. too. (@CalgaryPT) Hover your mouse over the like button to see more options. See: JW

    Leaf springs circa 1953

    Got a picture? I would imagine leaf springs would be some type of spring steel, but that's truly just a guess. haha.

    All fixed up now! Tied to a recent update to an old system installed in 2015 which broke file management. All working now! Here's my dog as proof:

    3D Printers

    What kind of printer are you working on? Look forward to seeing you both. ~2 hours a night for ~5 days Pretty lazy pace though. I could have hammered the thing out on a Saturday if I focused on the single task. I built it while watching Netflix, chatting with my wife the whole time. haha

    3D Printers

    @Alexander, Did you apply the Mosfet fix to your i3? Also, the wire crimp fix? That model has had two issues which should be addressed if you haven't already. (Both risked burning homes down) I have two printers, a Monoprice Select plus (~$400), and later upgraded to a Prusa I3 MK3 kit...

    Hey, What was the amperage and voltage range you ended up settling into? I can find lots of charts online but curious as to your findings. Nice, that looks awesome. If you ever have to remake it, I suspect that aluminum or Delrin might be better to avoid that issue in future. Becuase it's a...
