Recived my order of a couple of BuildTak bed surface film sheets the other day. I am a bit sad that I didn't get this sooner.

I am finally printing ABS with zero warp/lift so far without any glue, tape, brim, skirt, raft, smooch, mouse ears...

The prints stick like crazy and still aren't very hard to remove from the hot bed. I've been happy using good glue sticks for a long while but nothing I've tried so far can be compared to this. Easy to apply and just go.

Taking care not to scratch the surface and wiping it between a few prints with isopropanol is all it takes. It'll be interesting to see how long it hold its adhesion properties in the long run.

Bed at around 70C. Bottom surface of prints look similar to top surface. I am happy. Very happy.

+Andreas Thorn I have been abusing my CoroPad... I drove the head into it a couple of times  -  not intentionally... I was having other issues. I used my putty knife to clean up the raised bits an pressed on. 

I am sure it will not last forever, but  I have been putting it through the paces and it is great so far. I have lost track of the number of prints on this pad...

Printade senast efter sommaren. Lite i våras. Har gått bra när jag är igång. Ska ladda upp bilder sen. Kör bara PLA som tidigare. Använder utspätt trälim med vatten. Funkar bra och för flera printar. Blir inte för klistrigt och tunt skikt. Stryker på med en svamp

I must have one of these.  I just have to figure out how to attach it to the race bike (along with the clop clop coconut shell device previously mentioned.)

I don't really have any major issues with #KiCad  4.0.0-stable so far. I find it quite good for the work I do.

Just make sure you get those library paths corrected and stay far far away from assigning footprints with CvPCB and do it in Eeschema instead.

I've used CvPCB in the past and that worked fine, but now any changes in footprint assignment after the initial assignment seems to have no effect, and the button is gone from the project window (hint hint...). So Eeschema it is from now on.

A new devel snapshot 2016.02.01 of #OpenSCAD  is out. I totally forgot about the work being done on the viewport control. Seems it has been there since 2015.03 :-P How nice to be able to define viewport translation, rotation and view distance to show the model from it's best view by default.

Also note that you're able to define the color of the axis/scale markers in the color scheme nowadays. They are a great help to visualize the scale of things but I don't want them to dominate the view by being too bright.

(It was implemented for a while after I suggested it but then it was gone from the devel snapshots and now it's merged back again. Yay!)

I don't reshare superduper often but boy, today my stream is filled with über cool stuff. I can definately see myself making one of these, but I feel it doesn't quite go with the kids.

I've been keeping up to date with recently added designs with my RSS reader (Feedly) but since December 4 that feed has not updated.
The url I have used is "https://www.youmagine.com/designs/latest.atom"

I see that I can access the newest designs via http://www.youmagine.com/designs/latest but that is not interpreted as a feed by Feedly.

What url should I use to keep track of recently added designs in RSS readers?
Browse through thousands of 3D models that are open source, free to download and print on your own 3D printer.

Indeed!

Oh, this reminds me it's that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting darker. Time to cuddle up on the couch and watch the Firefly box.
 
I love this quote from the ever amazing Gina Torres.

"I walk into a room, and for this industry, I'm impossibly tall. When they find it hard to pair you up with the opposite sex, then what's left for a woman? Either you're the ball-buster or the not-so-attractive girlfriend standing by the lead. I mean, traditionally not so attractive, because you have your starlets then you have their best friends who are these character actresses. When you fall within the cracks, you thank God for Sci-Fi, because they'll give you a gun, and they'll say, 'Go over there and conquer that world. You kick some ass, girl!'"

Yes. That's why I find Sci-Fi so inspirational. Go kick some ass.
