Printing testing extravaganza
A few weeks ago, I made what was supposed to be a 6 hours print (according to simplify). It ended up being 9 hours, keeping me up way longer than it should have. So I want to find a solution. How can I get more accurate print time? I remember the estimates ...

It's been a while I didn't post here, so here's some catching up. I'm done with university. I only had one semester left to do, with two classes. One was a laboratory class, where, with a team of 3 other people, we had to calculate the efficiency of a shell...

Adventures in 3D printing, and the end of the semester.
3D printing As I mentioned in my last post, I ordered a 3D printer off Monoprice's Ebay page. They had a very nice deal: a prusa i3 clone for only $309, or, shipped and taxed and everything, 478 canadian pesos. The printer. Monoprice Maker Select, or Wanhao...

3D printing, molding and casting!
A few weeks ago (as of posting this, not writting) I received an e-mail from my student project director saying the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering were planning on buying a few 3D printers, and wanted our opinion on the matter. They had r...

Spring break week! Old electronic equipment salvaging.
Midterms are (semi) over! Springbreak is here! What best way to start spring break than by doing some electronics salvaging! Cleaning up the basement, I realized I had an old all-in-one printer, and an old scanner, taking wayyyyy too much space. Instead of ...
