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...

Är det någon som testat- eller bytt till någon av de "nya" 32-bitars kontrollerkorten?

För mig har iofs RAMPS 1.4 fungerat helt okay hela tiden, och det är fortfarande svårt att slå den i pris/prestanda med 200kr ink frakt.

Men när jag skulle kompilera nyaste Marlin firmware igår så blev det ett par timmar av pill, felsökning och omkonfigurering eftersom de bland annat bytt en del pin-associationer och sättningar sen sist.

Vad jag förstår av 32-bitars Smoothieware-baserade kontrollers så konfigurerar man dem genom att helt enkelt editera en textfil. Det låter frestande just nu :-)

It is intended to run the Smoothie modular firmware ( GPL too ), and is targeted at 3D Printers, Laser cutters, CNC Mills, Pick and place and other small-sized CNC machines. Larger machines can be driven using external drivers. Not Available. Get a Smoothieboard ...

Yay! Skip Le Beuf and the bad CGI of number 4 and we're talking!
Got to tell mom to shape up! 70+ seem like a good age for adventures!
Indy is coming back. Disney just announced that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will return to one of their most famous franchises as Indiana Jones 5 opens on July 19, 2019.

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 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.)

After a gazillion revisions I finally got to mount my 3D printed handwheels on my mini lathe (MJ-189, Emco Unimat 4 clone) and try them out.

It's great to have resettable dials which the originals lacked and the larger size really improve the surface finish. I am using carbide tools on aluminum so mirror like finish isn't to be expected but with the new handwheels in place it is much easier to maintain a constant feed and surface finish is actually beyond my expectations.

Very happy with these.

+Kurt Meister nice :)

I'm not sure about Emco. I got my lathe used recently and the model was sold new around 2001 here in Sweden.

Lathes named Unimat do exist new from a company called thecooltool (duh...)
But they look more like toys or very low end entry models even compared to my little lathe which can handle quite a bit if handled accordingly.

The thing about the real/clone Unimats from the time is that unless you get lucky accessories are pretty expensive and can be hard to find compared to other machines in the segment on the current market. If I'd start over from scratch I'd probably look at a Taig/Peatol (with larger spindle bore upgrade and brushless motor), Proxxon or Sherline. Proxxon seem most capable out of the box but Taig/Peatol sure is the most hackable/extendable and most value for money of the three.

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!)

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'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.

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.
