My experience with the Riverside SLA CTC printer was that you should not get the Riverside SLA CTC printer. It was $880 on eBay, and I've had good luck with generic Chinese brands before (UP 3D printer, Vinylexpress Vinyl Cutter, Redsail Laser Cutter) so I thought "how bad can it be?"

The answer is: Very bad. Summary:
- The upper plastic shell was broken in three places. Not a dealbreaker, but is alone to doubt the audacity of "high quality" in the eBay listing.
- The software provided DOES NOT make SLA supports. The parts shown in the eBay listing (http://www.ebay.com/itm/262136829780?) are not made by the included CURA software which is clearly designed for FDM printing. This issue is a dealbreaker and makes the printer nearly worthless.
- The tolerances are unusable. a 10x10x10mm cube prints as 8.36x9.8x1.02cm. The height output is 17% short of what is input! All the eBay seller has to say about it was "This deviation is within the normal range, I hope you can understand."

At this point, I didn't bother with trying to make the printer more accurate. I've sent it back for a full refund. Many components seemed pretty decently built. But overall the product is unfinished. Almost like they were 90% to making an amazing cheap SLA printer, and then got lazy and gave up. If you're looking for a cheap SLA printer, the Nobel 1 seems to have decent reviews, and is currently $1000. Maybe one day the Form 4 will be cheap enough for everybody.

I tried to use the formlabs software which itself works great (as in it generates and shows the proper supports.) Unfortunately it's completely false that the form labs software works with this printer. I think once upon a time there was firmware that was compatible with the formlabs software, but that's long gone.

So simple, yet effective.

Yes, I know it's on the top of reddit. Yet, I still wish to share it.

After visiting the museum, and reading the diary, this has a very Anne Frank feel to it.

Having not read the article, I'm having a hard time imagining what a quantum Otto cycle would be. It also looks like "squeezed" here is some other quantumy language... Yeah, I don't know... quantum physics is weird. We should ask +Deepak Chopra to explain this to us. :)

I just got 3/10, which means I would have done almost twice as well if I had randomly chosen. Shit.

CES is in full swing, offering a chance to preview electronics that many consumers would never buy. We present actual offerings and ones that we made up. Can you tell them apart?

A clean and serene resort, great value. Breakfast to order included for each guest. Consistent internet. One complimentary van dropoff and pickup to a list of about 8 popular nearby destinations. Very well kept grounds. Every morning I saw multiple staff rake leaves and clean the pool. It's so cheap because the whole resort truly is "hidden". It's quiet and secure, but a bit difficult to get to. According to maps, there are two paths to the resort, but in reality only the east path leads there. This has caused many problems trying to get ubers to pick us up. Walking to the closest grocery store or restaurant on the main street takes about 15 minutes.

Cheap and yummy! A place like this would do so well in some gentrified hipster town in the US.

They literally Blast Christian gospel through the ceiling speakers the whole time. The least they could do is put a sign up that says they are a Jesus-buffet. Upon requesting to be moved further away from the speaker, I asked if they were aware of what they were playing. I got a nod, and the waitress said, "a lot of people like it." I imagine the Christians that seek to prosthelytize, will be vocally in support. Sure, they have the right to play polarizing music, but they should also expect their reputation to reflect it. The food was OK.

This place could be a museum. You'll find no other like it in Colorado.

Diffident staff. Regularly unprepared. All dishes not available 20 minutes after 1030am open, with only 1/3 of dishes ready upon open. Nayeli is a portion scrooge compared to other pandas.
