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.

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?

Will it be Ok while using the slide controls?
I'm still having issues with the notification bar, if my http connection don't get interrupted it's Ok otherwise it freezes and won't disappear even when I close the app. Is there any log I can send you?

It'd be nice if OctoDroid would open up if I click on it in the notifications drop-down, or if double clicked on the lock screen notification. Most apps I run react that way.

Okey, adding that to next version. :)

I'll admit I'm still no fan of the user interface of #Wings3D  , but after giving it a chance and going through a couple of tutorials on Youtube I'm starting to know my way around some of the basics at least.

Here's a good tutorial on making 3D models for #KiCad  components. You'll even get to use #OpenSCAD  for the modelling! Yay!

Any new Windows builds on the horizon? Last stable seem to be 2013.07.07?

+Andreas Thorn​ What aspect of kicad-winbuilder caused you problems? I rarely use Windows but have built recent versions of the Product branch using it on my little Netbook. The builds are slow at 12 hours but I have not experienced any failures. The interactive push-and-shove router is in there.

Äntligen har Kjell & Co 1.75mm filament. Inte billigast, och kanske inte bäst, men klart trevligt när man behöver plast snabbt och har en butik lokalt.

trots kritik i diverse forum så har faktiskt kjells "pla" funkat bäst för mig...!

Man I have a hard time learning button combos on gaming joysticks :) How nice it would be to use a tablet for some of the controls. 

I know there are Android apps that emulate standard HID devices like a mouse or keyboard for remote controlling your pc with the phone, but are there any HID emulating apps that focus specifically on extending keyboard/mouse for game controls ?

Maybe there are apps for this already and I'm just having a hard time finding them.

A personal wishlist for a HID emulating app on the top of my head;
* Easily themable for the game in question ( #elitedangerous )
* Free-/ or snap to grid arrangement of elements
* Buttons can be push/rocker/analog sliders
* Customizable button labels with text/graphics
* Buttons can send a single- or combination of keypress/keydown/keyup/delays
* Connection through USB/Wifi/Bluetooth

+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?

If you use #glue (stick) for adhesion you could try something that works great for me. A couple of sprays with tap #water on the hot #bed before a print and the glued surface is ready for action again. No need to apply fresh glue every other print.

I've had no problems with this but still be careful not to crack your bed from temperature shock if you run it hot and use a heat spreader prone to crack.

Clarification; Water is applied to the hot bed.

Japp, åtminstone än så länge. 1.75mm är väl rätt så nytt. Sen tror jag iofs att vår lokala Kjelle inte kommer att sälja filament i några volymer så det kanske förblir så.
