I've added a new model for a "lip" sprinkler that attaches to a 100mm bottle. This puts the sprinkler above the roots, but below the foliage so that it should not get water shed outside the container.

If anyone has other sizes for bottles or connectors just let me know and I'll add more versions.

A failed boat print and a correctly printed box. The first full print to succeed on my Kossel pro.

If you have an interface then you should probably be testing it. Percy.io helps you test your UI with your normal CI flow.
 
AH it's up! I've been working on this for months and just launched https://percy.io, a tool for continuous visual integration for engineering teams.

Here's the blog post: https://blog.percy.io/2015/05/29/launch/

And you can follow on twitter! https://twitter.com/perceptualpercy
Percy.io is live! Let's make perceptual diffs and continuous visual integration testing a mainstream engineering practice.

Who knows the secret of getting the venturi nozzle to work?

I have a really good print of the nozzle (professionally printed since I was frustrated) and it doesn't work from everything that I have tried. I get air bubbles, but nothing goes up the tube to the plants.

Is there some trick to getting it to work that I haven't seen? I have it submerged in a 5 gallon bucket that is almost all the way full.

I was able to get a little drip every once in a while, but not really what I was expecting. I don't think my 5 gallon bucket is really enough water to give it the pressure it needs.

I am in the process of designing a replacement that might work better. My initial test print was already pumping more than I was getting, but I need to adjust some things to see if I can improve upon it.

If only there was a way to rapidly prototype... :)

An interesting look at P vs NP and what it actually means and the problem trying to be solved.
