    ASA filament with acetone smoothing is awesome

    Tupperware that can be sealed, used a little stand in the bottom of it, and some acetone in the bottom of the Tupperware with a paper towel to wick the acetone up and help vaporize it. I also wiped the part down with acetone with a paper towel before placing it in the Tupperware to speed it up...

    Checking in with my Ender3 pro

    Definitely , no question. And don’t upgrade anything until you’ve gone through several rolls of filament and get the hang of things and can hone in on what you really need, and stuff you don’t need.

    ASA filament with acetone smoothing is awesome

    I do worry about the electronics while printing at such extreme temps in an enclosure. I think if I keep printing ASA and using these temps, I may look into a more permanent enclosure and a way to get all the electronics besides the steppers out of the enclosure. I'm in the process of...

    ASA filament with acetone smoothing is awesome

    Nothing crazy. I printed it on a bone stock MK3S+ inside a el cheapo enclosure off Amazon in my garage. I think its around 260/105 for temps. It prints like PLA, really, really nice and smooth. I print it with a brim so it sticks to the build plate as it can warp pretty easily. Compared to...

    ASA filament with acetone smoothing is awesome

    Just finished printing this AllSky Raspberry Pi mount in Inland natural color ASA filament. Smoothed it with acetone. The results are incredible, you can't even tell its 3D printed with how smooth the parts turned out. Probably makes it more waterproof for outdoor use now that the layer lines...

    IT'S REALLLLLLLLL - Prusa XL

    I have an MK3S+ and a Mini+, I wanted to get one of these, but I can't justify the price since the other two Prusa's cover 98% of my printing needs. My wife got me an Artillery X2 for printing anything that won't fit on the MK3S. Its not as great as a Prusa, but its pretty good and a fraction...

    Makera Carvera

    Have you received it yet? I'm kicking myself for not getting in on the early bird special. Seems like a pretty awesome machine for the price.

    Networked Windows machine instead of Parallels 17

    Did a test run of it with RDP on an old Thinkpad i5 system with 8gb and 128gb SSD. So far, its faster than if I were running it on the MBP under Parallels ARM -> x64 emulation. Success! I dont make large, complex models so I think RDP with gigabit should be sufficient for my needs. Just hobby...

    Networked Windows machine instead of Parallels 17

    I currently have Autodesk Inventor running on Win11 inside Parallels 17 on my M1 MBP. It works, but it isn’t fast. So I’m curious about running a networked Windows machine instead of using Parallels. What would be the best approach to putting a Windows machine hooked up to my gigabit home...

    Ender5 pro bl touch

    Did you update the firmware after installing BL Touch? I really liked it when I had it on my Ender 3. Super PINDA on Prusa is even better, but the BL Touch made life easier in my experience. I hated tinkering, I just wanted to print, BL Touch sped that up once installed.

    Ender5 pro bl touch

    I had an Ender3, not a 5. If I recall, at least on the board I had, there were two different ways to set it up. Either replace the Z stop switch with the BL touch wiring, or plug it into the ABL port on the board. Not sure the specifics on your board, but thats how mine was. It was the...

    How to connect 5 devices to VCC on Arduino for 3D printed mouse?

    I went with your suggestion. I attached two red wires to VCC on the Pro Micro board, and one wire went to the OLED + rotary encoder, and the second red wire went to the RGB strip and joystick sensor. That way the amps were kept lower.

    How to connect 5 devices to VCC on Arduino for 3D printed mouse?

    I'm in the process of assembling an Orbion Space Mouse, https://github.com/FaqT0tum/Orbion_3D_Space_Mouse I'm a newbie to electronics. The OLED, rotary encoder, 3x rear switches, neopixel, and joystick all connect to the single VCC wire. How would you go about connecting all of these devices...
