PHOTO OF THE DAY: Dirt Rider and friends found rain and rainbows while out testing yesterday in the mountains. An afternoon thunderstorm brought some much needed traction to the dirt!

Look forward to being able to get rid of my monthly GotoMeeting bill. With everyone needing a gmail account.. this will not happen soon. :(
 
We all know the best meetings are the ones we have face-to-face—but these days, our co-workers are often across the country, and we're trying to dial into calls from a cab or from home. Starting today, any company can upgrade their meeting rooms with Chromebox for meetings, which brings together Google+ Hangouts and Google Apps in an easy-to-manage Chromebox, making it easier for employees to meet eye to eye in high-definition video meetings.

North of La Paz, Baja Sur Mexico. Lunch break, after swimming with whale sharks, heading to snorkel with sea lions. I need to go back... now.

Good one G.
 
If you’re cooking up some wings or guac for the big game this Sunday, the Google Search app on your tablet can be your kitchen helper. Use it hands-free by saying “Ok Google,” and then:
-- When you’ve got three or four things cooking at once, Google can keep timers on all of them—say "Set a timer for 15 minutes" and then “Set a timer for 25 minutes,” and you’ll get a separate alarm for each.
-- If you’re debating whether to go healthy(er) or all out, ask about "Butter versus olive oil" to see a calorie and fat comparison.
- And if you realize you still need to pick up a last-minute item, just say, "Remind me to pick up cream cheese when I get to Shop Rite." You’ll get a notification on your smartphone when you get to the store.

Good luck feeding the army!

I still get frustrated with Kapton / PET tape.  One of my TAZ3s was in need of new tape. I decided to test an idea I have had for a while. I etched the borosilicate glass. Theory is this will solve the harispray pulling up with the part. 

Etched glass with hairspray:
I tried a few prints. My theory was proven. The hairspray stick perfect to the glass. Unfortunately I am now having pullup/warping issues with my parts. This was not the case with my AO-101 only these new TAZ printers. Tried several temps and the one that worked best was start at 65c finish 55c. 

Etched glass with ABS juice:
I washed off the hairspray and applied 2 coats of ABS juice right on the glass. First test pulled up after about 20 layers @85c. It is hard to tell where the ABS juice application is with the etched glass, so I added a couple more layers and tried again. It performed great. 100+ layers with the second test. Held tight and popped right off when cooled down to 40c.  The bed was nice an perfect after removing the part. This may be the best of both worlds. Stick of Kapton and low/no application of hairspray. I added another re-wipe of ABS juice and will send another print.  Ultimate goal would be to have a nice thin abs coating that will last many prints. I will post updates here if there is interest.

I got back to testing the etched glass and abs slurry. So far 5 prints of the same part in the same location and I did not have to touch the bed.

+3ders.org I love your printer price compare. I could suggest some improvements to your Filament guide. Not much use to me or anyone at this point. Please let us know if you update the list! Thank you.
