More details later, but I was reminded I hadn't posted these. I've been experimenting with PETG and printing completely solid.

I adjusted it live with M221 to calibrate, then wrote the multiplier that worked into the slicing profile. I adjusted a little at a time, so it wasn't really visible in the sides. I also stopped the prints and started over to check the multiplier printing from zero a couple of times, so I don't have one print that shows the effects of different extrusion multipliers. The only real way to tell if it's working is to look down through the print, so air gaps in the early layers will make it hard to tell if you have them in the upper ones.

I've got some other pieces that I've sanded and polished to a mirror finish. I'm gonna try it on some calibration cubes I printed this way to get rid of the surface details and see just how clear they are inside.

Check out my entry with +Whosa whatsis   into the ‪#‎2016HackadayPrize‬ - we are going in under their Assistive Technology ‪#‎a11y‬ category, which officially opens for entries Monday. We have started building out now so that we can get as many comments and collaborators as possible. We think there are two communities that need to meet each other:
1. Mainstream schools who have just gotten 3D printers often are wondering what do to with them.
2. Teachers of the visually impaired often have access to a 3D printer, but rarely have time to design their own models.
So we are developing a set of guidelines, instructions for readable Braille, and open-source mdoels that follow the guidelines. Next up we are figuring out how have some sort of minimalist open source sharing exchange so that groups 1 and 2 can find each other. The development period (during which community participation and comments are encouraged!) runs through October 3. Please check us out, comment, and give us a Hackaday Skull if you are a site member!
Visually impaired students have difficulties learning many subjects. 3D prints offer an unprecedented asset for their teachers, and 3D printers are becoming available for these teachers. But they need help creating models that aren't just pretty, and are tied to curriculum. [Whosawhastis] and I have been volunteer mentors to various groups working on figuring out the best ways to use 3D printing for the visually impaired. Our goal with this pro...

I haven't tried Octoprint in a while (I'm so used to printing from an auto0.g file), but it seems like it's time to try it again. I see there's now a touchscreen interface and a couple of android apps. One thing I don't see that would be nice is a good way to run it on an android device (using USB host, which is now standard, and I'm talking about a phone/tablet, not one of those sticks that can run debian). I found this post: https://plus.google.com/+AndrewDalgleish/posts/NCwpaJQxhe9, but it's pretty old, and the method is complicated. Anyone know of any more recent developments in this area?

It's not a stair, it's a trap for drunken intruders! Mother in law have one of those stairs but with "normal depth" so each step is a small island in the air. It's pure evil. Of cause it got wire as rail along the sides as well. So if you fall you get hurt in so many ways..

We ( +Whosa whatsis  and I)  are going to be hanging out at the MatterHackers booth at Bay Area Makerfaire in San Mateo. We will be there for sure at noon and 3 PM on both Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22nd, to talk about our new book from Apress  ("3D Printed Science Projects.") Hope to see you all there!

My business partner +Whosa whatsis  and I are the co-organizers of the first American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division Scientific Maker Symposium and Exhibit. We invited scientists who are using maker tech like 3D printing and Arduinos to present their work and how that turned out for them. We got a very interesting response across a spread of disciplines, and expect a dozen exhibits and a long afternoon of papers.

The program will be held as part of the AAAS/PD annual meeting. The overall meeting runs Tuesday, June 14 through Friday, June 17; our program is on Thursday the 16th. It will be held at the campus of University of San Diego.

To see the list of talks in the symposium, see http://associations.sou.edu/aaaspd/2016SANDIEGO/Symposia16.html#7

For general information about the conference, and for a link for registration, go to http://associations.sou.edu/aaaspd/2016SANDIEGO/index.html

Hope to see a lot of  #scientificmaker activity!

 I wanted to put out a last call for submissions for  an event  +Whosa whatsis  and I are  co-chairing n San Diego June 16th. Our event is a showcase of  DIY science and scientific maker projects; it will be part of the larger American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division annual conference. If you know anyone who is working to lower the cost of doing professional science or to enable citizen scientists to build their own equipment, we would love it if you could pass this on.  Examples would be using consumer-level 3D printing for prototype or real equipment, Arduinos to run field sensors, etc.

Applications to give a talk are due April 1, and to exhibit a maker project, April 22nd  Time and space are pretty limited (it's a pilot!- we just have one afternoon for talks and one big room for exhibits) but I am hoping to get some great DIY lab and open-source citizen science.

We now have a simpler form to apply for a spot to exhibit or talk, and links for more info:

Nice story today on how  +Whosa whatsis and I are trying to create #scientificmakers. (Overstates our role a bit in the fight against invasive beetles, which is described a bit more accurately in our hackaday.io project, but it's good to get people talking about what is possible.)

Interestingly I started to present myself in the last years as a "professional maker", and I am often surprised how positive the reaction is :) The bottom-up way is often more efficient than the usual, bulky, slow and expensive "industrial" way. Clients understand it very well when you present it in a serious way and with a good portfolio. They understand also the benefits of subcontracting for their own research and development (from startups up to public institutes!). Interesting times :)

The new book by +Whosa whatsis and me,  "3D Printed Science Projects," has gotten a great start- thanks, everyone! Here's another one of the models from the botany chapter. This one prints (in pieces) without support to show how jungle plants optimize their use of what sunlight they manage to get. ‪#‎scientificmakers‬ 
And by the way, we will be teaching a four week beginner 3d printing class online starting June 5. Still time to sign up at www.nonscriptum.com/classes.

The latest book with +Whosa whatsis  is now available for purchase! Thank you to all the folks who gave us great ideas, encouragement, a flat place to put down a laptop and/or food during the writing process... we have been really excited about how interested people have been in this book and hope it makes a real impact. It's the first book with objects designed to be changed in a way that allows for science exploration instead of just downloading a model that can't be changed.
