No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.
You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.
It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.
My #Hacktoberfest shirt arrived... and it's got several holes in the fabric 😞
A couple of years ago I had to basically skip a year or two of video gaming.
Now I mostly buy games released a year or two ago. Since they're dirt cheap at that point, I never manage to close that gap - and I still safe a ton of money.
I can only recommend having a bit of patience... don't buy games as soon as they're out. The price will drop in no time.
When up & down are two buttons on a touchscreen, right next to each other. Ouch:
Here's another example for tree-style supports: "cute little dragon"
This required some tweezers, because the support was stuck to a bunch of small details, but as you can see it tore right off in 4 big pieces, without damaging the print.
#OctoPi experts among you:
I have a ton of old Pis just collecting dust, but I don't have a spare model 3 right now. Is a first generation Raspberry Pi good enough to run #OctoPrint as a gcode-proxy with a web-cam attached to it?
In other words: I slice my models on the desktop, I just need the Pi to feed the printer with data and monitor it.
The more I think about it, I do have a rather specific need in a 3D design tool:
I'm mostly trying to build space efficient / well designed cases for ESP/Arduino devices, along with a couple of sensors & attachments (e.g. temperature/humidity/motion sensors, LED display etc).
All their physical dimensions and pin layouts are well defined, so surely there must be some kind of tool, which comes with design templates and can auto-arrange an efficient case for you?
Right?! Please say I'm right.
Quite pleased with that as a first print. What do you think?
