Some people would label a person with 49 old floppy disks as a hoarder and film them for reality TV. But you know how the old saying goes: One person’s trash

If you like #minecraft  and #3DPrinting  - definitely print my custom TNT Block
The Minecraft (tm) theme seemed like a good one to start with when looking for fun things to print. The short story I created a model of a TNT block which my printer could handle (see longer story below to see why) - printed...

Wish I could put this much effort into a long term project. Great work. ABS smells so bad though.

SMART+3DP: Free your 3D Printer. BE SMART+, BE FREE!
Remember old times when printers had to be connected to your computer? This is happening to 3D Printers now! There are thousands of 3D printers on market, each of them with unique features and others in common. The vast majority of printers have USB connection and require a dedicated computer connected to them, in order to operate, this is about to change in a few days, thanks to SMART+3DP.
SMART+3DP new version will be powered by Windows 10 IoT on a Raspberry PI 2. The actual version is powered by Linux.
SMART+3DP is a:
3D Print controller
Free you from USB attachments and connecting cords. With the touchscreen system, you can manipulate your printer from the SMART+3DP device itself. The system allows you to rotate, scale, and prepare the 3D model before 3D printing. You can slice with Cura (And other slicers) locally or using our cloud, and even repair your 3D file before 3D printing.
3D Print Kiosk
Use SMART+3DP as your personal or commercial 3D Print Kiosk by connecting a big Touch Screen or Monitor, Keyboard & Mouse bundle. SMART+3DP allow to set use limits (Per user, Time, Filament and schedule) or to bill the jobs by Schedule (DoW),Time and used filament combination in a 2 level authorization, prepaid or postpaid basis.
3D Print server
SMART+3DP Offers a complete system of autonomy for your 3D printer, you only needs a wireless connection to completely control printing from a phone, tablet, smart TV, or traditional computer system. At home using your local Network or from everywhere using our secured Cloud services.

In that case yes i will indeed be giving it a try as i have a rpi2 and a printed that is nearing completion and the prospect of slicing and hosting on a pi is very appealing.

Experimenting in #3dprinting  means trying things that you're not sure will work. That's what I did with rotating my part on the print bed - and it actually solved a problem i was having...
Getting my 3D Prints to stick to the bed is probably one of my biggest challenges. It's mostly with small parts - and I've mostly had issues when trying to print many copies of the same part all at once. But recently, there w...

If you have problems with parts not sticking to the bed, use hairspray.

I print abs on a 60 degrees celsius bed (my bed won't go hotter than that) and with a little hairspray it won't come off.

I print pla and abs on the same temperature (bed) and both stick fine.

Need a simple project ? Use these #3dprinted  snap-together alphabet links to make personalized bracelets. Great small project for kids and perhaps inspiration for more projects.
After some experimenting with snap together parts, I came up with a design which works pretty well for bracelets and other small applications. (Links to the model files are at the bottom of this post). I call these abclets. T...

Solve a Problem with a 3D Print
The great thing about 3D printing is we can share physical-world solutions in a 3D model. A 3D model is a good way to frame solving a problem. I have stumbled across a couple well packaged 3D prints that I have used to gain inspiration and use as gifts. Others have used well packaged 3D prints ...

I have a family member who might benefit from this device. His joystick also controls a tilt back function which he engages by pressing down on the joystick. An enhancement might be away to control too.
