I managed to get my hands on a very small amount of copper filament. But that was enough to get the courtain wall. Starting to cut fixed windows open to glue some acetate on it giving up on the clear Petg. It is too wet.

Is it safe to dry the Petg with the air fryer? (Real question here)Like safe to use it afterwards with actual food?:oops::fl

I'd rather use a food dehydrator or a dedicated filament drier, but feel free to experiment and tell us afterwards if the food tasted a bit weird..;)

Most ovens or air friers can't be set to temperatures low enough for drying well PETg ( 65C/150F). Worse still for PLA, that shouldn't dried above 55C/130F.

I wouldn't risk that. Pick up a cheap or used Dehydraror and mod it and it will work really well for you. There are many mod vids out there but all mostly do the same mod to the dryer


Very impresseive work BTW. If you move to Klipper it has great ways for tweaking print quality and I think you will be amazed at how much difference it can make to a print.

This project kept me up until 3:30 am last night since I got the idea at around 1am and couldn't sleep until I had tested it. LOL!

I have a set of broken headphones, so I designed and printed a bracket to hold everything together. I might refine it / clean it up a bit because it's not super pretty, but it works GREAT!

We've had a lot more power-outages lately. I have various 12v batteries in many different sizes, capacities, connectors, etc. This "power box" lets me use ANY 12v battery to do a lot of stuff during an outage:
  1. Accepts any 12v. power source
  2. Converts to USB PD 3 (power delivery) to charge laptops up to 100W through a single cable
  3. 2 regular USB chargers (from Dollar Tree car USB cig. adapter)
  4. Measures the Amperage/Voltage
  5. Very bright, but SUPER low-power consumption LEDs

Some components of a sign I'm working on. Originally designed this to be cut in vinyl, so I had to export them from the sign cutter software, import them into illustrator, convert them to svg, then model them in tinkercad. Then export those models so I could set them up in lychee and print them. The shuffling around took a couple of hours to get the final sliced pwma's, but fortunately, it's a "one and done" kind of setup issue. From here it's prep/paint/patina/assemble.

Printed on an Anycubic Photon Mono 4k using clear eco resin.

Wow, that looks fantastic, thanks for sharing!

Resin prints do come out really nice... I'm still just too scared to go down that path. Also, most of my stuff is bigger / mechanical with less need for fine detail... I don't really do models, etc.

That's the one drawback I can see. I have this funny feeling I'm going to end up with an FDM printer with a larger bed too. Why dip a toe in the water when you can jump in headfirst with no life jacket?
