Resins, Vats and Liquids  - 
 
I grew tired of having to purchase new Formlabs Form1+ vats, so I designed one that I could print on my Prusa i3. It is printed in PLA with 4 perimeters, 50% infill, 0.2mm layer height, and uses standard 1/4" soda lime glass. I am honestly surprised no one has done this yet.

This is a printable Formlabs Form1+ printable vat. I got tired of having to buy a $50 vat every time the PDMS wore out, so I designed this so I could make my own. I attempted to replace the PDMS in the existing commercial vats, but the acrylic frame was already cracked from repeated use which made it impossible. I printed this with 3-4 perimeters, 0.2mm layer height, 50% infill out of PLA. DO NOT USE ABS AS IT WILL MELT WITH REPEATED UV RESIN...

Oh I see. I used the cheap PLA filament that's why. Thanks!

I recently regenerated my users.yaml file (delete users.yaml, restart octoprint) and now I've lost the link on the top task bar to reboot my system / restart octopritnt. Any idea how I might get that back?

Is there a recommended list of upgrades to do to a K40 laser cutter? Winter is Coming and I'll have some time on my hands to finally do the upgrades to mine...

For those wanting an OS alterantive to Creation Workshop, you might want to look at Skylight, which is being developed by the folks at SeeMeCNC. It's very bare-bones and is still buggy, but it's at least functional:  https://github.com/evride/Skylight
Skylight is a simple control program for DLP 3D printers

Quick question: does OctoPrint support having multiple printers plugged into a powered USB hub and then allowing the user to select which printer to print to using a dropdown box or similar from the GUI?

There is if you don't mind disconnecting from printer A before selecting printer B. Just use the Connection options on the top of the left sidebar.

A massive 40-hour print of a Saber Toothed Cat, Smilodon fatalis.  The final print measures 12" from base of skull to tip of jaw and was printed in Gold PLA from SeeMeCNC.  I ended up printing this in four pieces so I could fit it on my printer and I glued it together with super glue.

Shane, I apologize for your images being used.  Our writer Brittney should have asked your for permission.  She had thought that I was doing it, but I did not.  No excuse.  Images have been removed.
