    Thingiverse - Solution to broken customizer / OpenScad

    @The Hat will probably appreciate this since he's an expert at openScad ;) The "customizer" feature on a lot of models on thingiverse has been really cool, fun, and helpful to use... but unfortunately is, and has often been broken. I had NO idea that I could download the scad files, and then...

    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...

    My GF is a big fan of drinking soda water. She's been using a soda stream to make fizzy water from home. Definitely a lot cheaper than buying it from the store.

    What Are You Currently Printing?

    I've realized there are lots of times where we're printing something and may not want to start a whole thread on/about that item.
