    Enclosure Builds! Show off your setup!

    Custom enclosure with thick acrylic panels. Fire suppression. I have a two more that aren't kept in the enclosure for making fun toys for the kids. I have a Palette 2 hooked up to one of those that I've been playing around with.

    Octoprint and Creality CR-10S connection issue

    This is odd, I assume the SD card that runs PI might have been corrupted. I'd try a different SD card and put the image back on there. Also check if you have enough juice running through the Pi. My adapter went bad and the Pi acted really weird.

    If you had CNBC on daily, wouldn't the bars just burn in?

    Prusa Multi Material Unit

    What do you guys think about the Palette 2? Thinking of getting one of these and cancel my MMU order. I was told the reliability was much better than the MMU.

    Steam VR Usage Almost Doubled in 2018

    It was actually 300 dollars around Christmas. It was a new Rift but it was being sold through eBay. I initially bought one a long time ago when it first came out but sold it. It was around 600 dollars if I'm not mistaken when it debuted. The tracking wasn't that good and had some latency...

    Steam VR Usage Almost Doubled in 2018

    I was on the bandwagon of VR being just a fad. After I watched an NBA game in VR last night, that changed. They need to put more money into having VR at sporting events. I would love a higher res HMD down the line.

    Rift on sale again

    350 is a great price for this. I lucked out and got it for 300 during a Christmas sale.

    The State of VR in 2018

    It's too hard to tell if VR is the next big thing. The immersion is definitely cool and I love the virtual tours. I have yet to try the space flight sim but I heard it can get you quite nauseous. It is a niche product though. It runs well on my GTX 1080 but it's understandable that you would...

    Ender 3 Print bed

    I'd try a PEI sheet or use painters tape. It's not uncommon that the larger prints near the edge would not stick. It's because the heat bed will heat and maintain temperature for the center of the bed but the edges are going to be cooler. I would kick up the temp of the heated bed just a few...

    Prusa Multi Material Unit

    Man this is awesome. Mine's on order and won't be here until Feb. Prusa did a video where he said that soluble supports were expensive so what he did was to build the support up to the point before it touches the print and the only the remaining layers touching the print with the soluble to...

    Additional cooling for Prusa MK2?

    Awesome. Noise doesn't bother me but the ability to do steeper overhangs is awesome. The comments on Thingiverse say it melts. I use a sock on mine though. Hope it fits.

    Olsson Ruby Nozzle

    Wow, this nozzle is really good. I don't work for them at all. It's a pain for me to keep switching nozzles when printing abrasive materials such as carbon fiber. With this nozzle, you just set it and you don't have to change it again. Carbon fiber filament wears on...

    eBay Site-wide coupon 10% Electronics, 15% other categories on Sunday 12/16 ( 7AM PST to 7PM PST)

    So technically you could drive the price of the occulus rift even further lower. I think the price was 299 the last I checked.

    Pretty solid deal. 299 is the lowest I have ever seen.
