I'm actually going to be doing a few lessons with our high schoolers on AutoCad and 3D printing next week. We are going to design and print bridges. (The fun part should be cutting out the support structures that are printed too) ...

        • PrusaSlicer makes support removal easy. - Puckdropper, Sat Jan 08 2022 9:09am
          Sometimes the best thing to do is rotate the support about 5 degrees. It doesn't need to be more, I tried 10 and 15 degrees and was just wasting filament. You'd also be surprised sometimes what will print without supports. I don't know if Cura supports angled supports. In PrusaSlicer you do have... more

      Most of my time is spent with family and work. Spare time, I've been doing hobby programming (even though my day job is that now too). Got into COBOL and have been making some stuff in that. How about you?

            We can give you a custom Puckdropper's Place sub domain. Erik has nukementerprises.puckdroppersplace.us We can give you joebasic.blurredvisions.nukementerprises.puckdroppersplace.us I think. I'm not sure if I can have sub-sub domains. :-)

              I think I'm good with this one, I run alot my projects on the server side of this one. Though looking to spin up a VPS instead of using BlueHost here pretty soon. Speaking of the JoeBasic Inc stuff, any of you happen to have the source code to my old wrestling sim on your systems. I think I ha... more
              • I might have a copy at my Mom's house... - Erik_, Sun Jan 09 2022 12:30am
                I checked the backups and stuff here and don't have it but I know I must have downloaded it back in the day. My mom lives 4hrs+ away though so I won't be able to check until next time we go visit (and with Covid surging again, it's going to be a bit...) Edit: Trying Archive.org... so clos... more
