    Printing SUPER fast!

    Good for people like me that are SUPER impatient! BTW, I just upped my nozzle from 0.6 to 0.8 and am playing around with how that speeds up my prints. Pretty interesting pros and cons.

    Cheap Amazon Laser Printer Cartridges / Refills - My Mess Experience

    The cart for my Brother laser printer was throwing an "empty" error. I was thinking I'd refill it, but an Amazon seller had a sale on clone cartridge that had great reviews. I received the cart, plugged it into my printer, and immediately got huge vertical streaks and smudges. Nothing solved...

    Custom Designed 3D-Printed Chicken Trophy Award

    1st step in a very lengthy process has begun for our THIRD member to hit 100k posts! Printing the base and adding weights embedded inside to give it a more stable feel! (interesting to compare the orientation I did with the same weights in the last print a few posts back)

    What Are You Currently Printing?

    I bought myself a Father's Day gift, a battery shop-vac: https://amzn.to/2AOqPUx ... but the hose is an odd size, so I printed a thing: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:820584 ... and it worked PERFECTLY!!!

    Ugh, pay better attention when ordering replacement cartridges!

    Ugh, pay better attention when ordering replacement cartridges!

    Back during "Cyber Monday" I got excited when I saw a "lightning deal" for 3 replacement cartridges for my Brother laser printer. I didn't need a new cart yet, but figured I'd take advantage of the sale. I made the purchase and put the carts in my closet waiting to be used. Fast-forward 2...

    Is 3D Design Any Harder Than Colour Management… ?

    Hmm... curious comparison. I never got into color management. I know some are purists and spend a lot of time calibrating, etc. I guess the same can be said for some people that really fine-tune their 3D printers (stepper motors, feed rate, etc. etc. etc.), which isn't stuff I do either. I...

    Is There Anybody Out There...

    Interesting discussion!!! I've thought about it, but I also don't have need of a camera and using a combo of direct USB for short prints, and microSD for longer prints has worked just fine, so I don't have a ton of incentive to add more complexity to my setup. I can see how that might be the...

    Printing a Clarinet adjustable for tuning barrel

    Very interesting. Bummer it isn't available anymore. If there are 3D files out there (like on Thingiverse) it would be relatively easy to have it modified to have a name added to it.

    Is There Anybody Out There...

    I've been doing odd printing projects here and there, but have been swamped with work and house projects such that I haven't been able to print as much and also not as much time to take pics / post about it. Hopefully will have a break soon!

    3D Printer Nozzle Quality Comparison

    I don't do a ton of super-precision, so my gut-reaction is "no, not a huge impact for the casual hobbyist". What would be interesting is if they printed the exact same test-sample item with the exact same filament, settings, etc., and only swapping those nozzles to see if there really is much...

    My Solar Power Journey

    Wow, that covers your entire usage? Very impressive! So, are you not able to utilize the full 6KW, or do they never peak out above what your inverter can support? The government limits the total amount of solar you can have!?!? Why are they doing that?

    My Solar Power Journey

    Not much wind where I am, and I don't even know if I can legally have a turbine. Fortunately we have "net metering" so they utility pays me when I overproduce during the day, and I can buy-back at night, so no need for batteries, etc. I broke even on my last install about 2 years ago, and I...
