3D printing 

here we go, trying to figure out the right settings to print with ABS

3D printing 

i love the little GIFs that the OctoPrint telegram addon will send you if you ask it for your print status.

i've got a pretty good camera angle now to do a nice pretty timelapse video, i'll try to remember to do that on the next one.

3D printing 

Aftermarket mods I have installed on my Ender 3:

- BL Touch auto-leveler
- Bullseye extruder housing and fan guide
- Dual Z rod
- Filament sensor
- OctoPrint
- Webcam
- Underside power supply mount
- Internally powered LEDs on the top bar and extruder
- All-metal Bowden extruder
- Direct extruder drive

Now that I have the filament sensor and direct extruder drive installed on my Creality Ender 3 , I think it's pretty close to its Final Form. I just need to spend some time arranging cables and making everything all neat and tidy.

lewd + gross quotes from discussions of D&D 

ok imma need the backstory of how you came to fuck a dead body in a campaign

all that futzing with my printer settings clearly paid off - this is straight off the printer plate with no post-print processing yet, and it looks really really good! there's still some room for improvement, but i'm very happy about this.

Installed an underside power supply mount on my ender 3 (the power supply had to be moved because of the dual z rod installation), and i gotta say it's a very satisfying place to stow it

i think my next project is gonna be to learn how to print with ABS, so I can make tougher parts

declaring my etsy store to be an essential business

i'm about to attempt to install a second z rod onto my 3d printer, wish me luck

still not perfect, but, after much pain and suffering, WOW has it gotten a lot better.

re: etsy store 

i've been doing upgrades and recalibrating my 3D printer settings to hopefully improve the quality of my minis, which is why i haven't posted any lately.

Stringing has once again reared its ugly head, and I'm not sure what's going on

getting a friend who's much smarter and more technically inclined than me into 3D printing so that I can get his advice: paying off

taking the time to try to exactly calibrate the Z probe offset on my

Latest additions to my : a far too long and elaborate webcam arm so that I can get better angles for remote viewing, and a filament sensor that will automatically pause the print when my current filament spool is almost empty.
