What you did today?

Posted (edited)

The coffee kicked in and I finally figured out what that was, a 3D printer! That's pretty awesome. How tall is it?

 

Well, it's got a print volume of 300mm x 300mm x 400 mm, which translates into American speak to about 12inch by 12 inch by 16inch.  

But if you want the actual height, from base to top of the filament roll, it's about 34 inches.

 

Edit:

 

And for the show and tell, my first "Benchy"  - The performance test model for printers in general.

Contrast post 146 & 147. I'm making a kitchen table and chairs using only tools that have been around more than 4k years. Raithe is 3D printing stuff. Here are two guys going in completely opposite directions!  :lol:

To be fair, you're making a kitchen table in what I imagine are only a few pieces. If I want to 3d print a kitchen table.. I'll have to do it in about 70 different parts..  Or make it one that's under 16 inches in length.

@ Raithe - lol, hubby's been using a very similar boat for some tests this week.

 They have CNC machines and services, you can just make one out of wood. But if you still want to print it:

BTW is hard to tell from  your picture but I think your machine only takes 2.85mm filament. Pro tip: You can run a 1.75mm bowden tube inside your bowden tube to use smaller filament.

Well after about 6 hours of printing, and 3 failed builds, I've made some progress on my project.

I have the outer cases to my lightsabre's grip / main body. Now I just have to get the emitter and pommel sections before deciding exactly how to do the inner core...

Edit: And since it's hard to tell from the pictures, those are both roughly 8cm / 3inches tall.

Easter always makes me think of my mom so it's kind of a sad day. The weather isn't helping much either.

 

Went to Home Depot to get the carpet replaced in the condo. That was my day so far.

Pro tip: use filler primer to even out the surface and get rid of the layer lines. Even more Pro Tip: make a silicone mold of the smooth print and cast it in an impact resistant material

They have sample sizes on Amazon, don't order a big one since it has a limited shelf life.

Up. Putter around, hung out with hubby, was a nice weather-day.  Made some beef soft tacos for dinner. Yummy.

 

Maybe time to turn on FFXV for a few hours. Started a new save file again for a lower level run on PC which I never truly got around to. Still more than two months before DQ:Builders 2 I think. At least that one won't be an Epic exclusive. Pfft.

The immediate family came over to our house for Easter and my wife cooked up a nice spread. I have a dirty little secret though, I don't really like ham.  :unsure:  Thin cut sammich ham?...yep, bacon?...load up the plate! But thick cut or spiral cut ham?...Ill eat a slice or two to be polite but Im not a fan. Otherwise a good time was had by all. w00t

Remind me to stop joining game communities. I'm tired of people half my age trying to tell the guy with half a dozen shipped credits how game development works. Was I this annoying when I first got here?

That depends (eh, just kidding).

 

Back on the BIS/IPLY boards we'd get freshmen computer science majors trying to explain software and game development to the devs every now and then. The one I remember most vividly was a guy explaining to JE how the lack of monk unarmed fighting animations in Icewind Dale II made the game suck and that they just should have taken Bioware's from Baldur's Gate 2.

 

These posts almost always started with "Hi, I'm a computer science major and...", you know, like the "I'm not a racist but..." kind of deal.

 

Was your first post like that? If not, then you're probably good. :p

I'm pretty sure it was "I'm so excited for KotOR 2!" :lol:

 

Switched from bupropion to venlafaxine and I think I already want to switch back

I preferred venlafaxine out of the two, but then bupropion made me suicidal and weepy. Venlafaxine just made me sweat excessively - it did take months to kick in though. Citalopram has been the most effective for me, but everyone has different reactions.

It's the internet. Everyone is some kind of tech/business/political expert, because they read wikipedia and watched some videos, don't ya know.

So, summer. Warm ambient room temps commence. Play game. New PC starts sounding louder and louder and louder. Apparently the Hydro unit fans don't like a warm room, even if the cpu temp itself isn't super high (50-60C). Download Corsair software to control fans. install. Doesn't detect the Hydro. Read that under device manager there's supposed to be a USB entry for the thing. It's not there.

 

Talk to hubby. "Oh, there was that USB wire I didn't use because I thought it was just to control the RGB lighting which you don't care about."

 

:disguise:

 

All better now. I had to change it from "Quiet" (which isn't very ... quiet) to "Zero RPM" profile. Edit - all these management softwares we need these days, simply because default setting on so much of the stuff is always an overly paranoid "rev up rpm's really loud for no reason" one.

Yesterday I forgot to set my alarm. So today is not a question of what I did, but what I did not do: wake up on time.

Do what I do: stay away from the message boards. As an alternative, you could also read posts without responding to them.

 

Not that I am an elite intellectual like yourself, boss. But you know, these things are quite easy to figure out. ;)

It's april. It's already 20C+ outside... and no rain for the past couple of weeks. I'm not a happy man right now.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

So what happens if you react to a post with sad face? Does it still register as a thumbs up "reaction" increase? Or does only the Like reaction increase that number? If you use Sad, does Reaction number decrease? Is that like a dislike? Inquiring minds want to know.

I am more confused about is the confused face.:shrugz:

I used the Confused face, it didn't seem to change your thumbs up number. You also now seem to be able to remove a reaction, including the Like one. Interesting.

Sorry if you got a bunch of notifications from me playing with them, not sure how often it does that. >.>
