Tonight I tested the adhesion of 7 glue sticks, 2 wet glues and 1 hair spray.

Since I've successfully printed ABS on mirror glass at a temperature of 70C using UHU Stic for quite a while now, tonights' tests were done under the same conditions. The adhesive medium is applied to cold glass.

Here are the contestants;

Scotch removable glue stick
Panduro extra strong glue stick
Pritt orginal glue stick
UHU kids glue
Dana lim school glue
Änglamark hair spray
Clas Ohlson glue stick
Bright Office glue stick
Panduro glue stick
Pritt power glue stick
UHU stic

Only two were usable under the set conditions.

#1 Bright Office
#2 UHU stic

Likely :-) I usually go with my wife to keep things under control. Not sure if it helps.

I always end up walking around looking for things to harvest/repurpose for hobby projects. Actually, that pretty much sums me up in all kind of shopping related situations.

Can't wait. Hope the Hoff makes a cameo appearance.

And hamsters with mullets doing some Mortal Combat stuff. :)

Another potential tool for the maker cave. I like the clean design!

Ooh... SLA DLP on the cheap! Nice job Bazzz!

"Enclosure is based on a IKEA method cabinet(40x40x38,5cm). beamer is placed on top for top-down SLA printing. No expensive lenses or surface mirrors needed but still great print quality!"
I started with the design by ScribbleJ but ended up only using the z-car and making new parts for the motor mount and the rod mounts based on prusa i2 and i3 design.

What do you think about a checkbox in the settings for enabling switching through the app tabs by swiping left / right?

I notice big differences in temperature graph update speed here. Anyone know why?

Raspberry Pi B, OctoPrint 1.2.0-dev-705-ga34cbc5 (devel branch), updates every 5 seconds.
Raspberry Pi 2 B , OctoPi/OctoPrint 1.1.1-30-g4fede5a (master branch), updates every 30 seconds.

Problem solved. Did a "git pull" which landed me on 1.1.2 (master branch). I think that's what did it.

Questions/Help  - 
 
I was just trying out the recently realeased 0.15 and alot of things worked much better for me than earlier versions, which I admit I did not have much patience with. However one thing still confuses me and that is undo/redo. Now I want to add that I am a total newbie with FreeCAD so maybe I am just doing something wrong.

Example;
I add a cube and a cylinder. Do a bool/difference so the cylinder is cut out of the cube and add a fillet to the resulting object. If I click undo it reverts to before the fillet but the visibility of the sub objects are not restored. I am definately not ending up in the same spot as before the last operation.

Sometimes when playing with other operations the undo seem to skip several steps back, suddenly showing sub objects that I performed boolean operations on earlier. Is the undo/redo behaviour sketchy or is it me? :-)

This sound similar;

+Marc Schönfleisch work on his wheels gave me alittle inspiration to try the same method on my printed v-groove wheels today.

While the motion is much smoother now after filing the groove it's pretty clear to me that I will have to try the same operation using some sort of jig to get a consistent roundness to the wheels.

To the naked eye the wheels look nice and round, and while it is quite enough for many applications they are simply not circular enough to roll effortlessly on a solid surface. It was expected but still fun to try :-)

That is similar to my plan of enclosed QR where I will use the openbuilds V wheels I have on hand. I do not like the idea of linear bearings breathing ABS vapors inside the enclosure and getting stuck one day

+Marius Gripsård my webcam feed is not showing up in the beta. I assume it should show up on the status page, directly above "Print Time Left"?

Is there anything I can do to debug this on my side?
