Normally I would not share a specific group's post into this community, however I think it's worth noting and is of interest when a company like +BCN3D Technologies​ decides to open source their printer designs and software.

Other mods, please let me know if this is out of line. I'm not intending to show favoritism just hopefully good open sourcing. :)

Just throwing this out there, but if an alternative firmware came out (Ie, not Marlin) what would be the features you would expect to have and be able to use on those 8 bit avr boards? E.g. Delta kinematics is a pain on those, so don't support delta for example. Keep in mind that Marlin is an unorganized mess because of several reasons one of which is a ton if added features on a board you can't do much on in the first place.

Or, alternatively, do you feel it's better as a whole to move to larger boards with 32 bit arm chips?

Discuss!

Hey, do you know if OctoPrint will work on the RPI3 yet? :D

Given the large number of recent questions and posts that have come to light in the past few days regarding licenses and what is and isn't valid, I think it would be useful to create a new section for them on this forum. That way, we have a more organized way to talk about licensing issues.

What are everyone's thoughts on this?

I've got a friend who is looking for a non-functional makerbot for a prop. I'm not overly sure how he's using this or if this is a buy/borrow situation. I'm still trying to get those details hammered out.

If anyone has a makerbot that doesn't work (shouldn't be that difficult to find really) let me know and I'll try to find more details from him.

Thank you!

Thoughts on working and "working" on company time
It's been a while since I've done a blog post. A lot has changed since then: I've graduated from a university, moved, and started a job. A coworker asked me to type up my thoughts on working on things that aren't exactly work related to enhance your skills,...

It's been a couple of months since this been posted to and it's not quite Halloween but I'm necromancing this.

+OctoPrint​ 1.2.0 just came out and +BotQueue​ is also going through stuffs right now, plus +Gina Häußge​ (since you weren't already tagged in this post before) is doing some great stuff with wanting to standardise crap. Point being, good time to find where everyone is at on this project.

BotQueue client updates!
It's been only a couple of months since the last software release, but it feels like it has been far too long. Instead of releasing 0.6, I'm releasing 0.5.1 today. There are two reasons for this, which I'll get to in a minute. But first, features! Makerbot ...

I had to jump on the bandwagon. Printed on a Lulzbot MINI with ABS.

I find it very interesting that hot-linking to a download file in thingiverse results in going to the item itself with a message that "attribution is important".
