So far it looks like the best direction for us will be to go after the police agencies involved in the chase, though I haven’t actually sat down with the lawyer.
I’m moving today to a rehab facility just down the hill a ways. Looking forward to a more mobile environment even if there’s no weight on the foot for the next several weeks. It’s not…[Read more]
I’m pretty much sitting around waiting for the next event to happen. Today they let me know the next round of foot surgery is tomorrow. I have been anxious to get to eat, but am not holding my breath on it. They gave me temporary permission for clear liquids Thanksgiving day but rescinded that by the end of the day and I’ve been in no food since.…[Read more]
I’m going to be in the hospital for a while. Ten broken ribs, broken heel bone on my good leg, perforated bowel (they gave me surgery for that one Wednesday night) lots of other contutions in various places. I’m going to be off my feet completely for at least several weeks.TTurns out the other driver had no insurance or license and was doing 100…[Read more]
Using a V bit means you’ll have to make very small cuts to get anything close to a flat surface within those letters. A flat bit will be much better. V bits are best for carving, where there are lots and lots of small movements giving curved surfaces.
I bought these for my MP3DP and use the smaller one extensively. The long one would work well for a thin spatula, though I’d want to either remove the handle or bend it such that it sits fully flat on the surface.
I’m working with some other interested people in starting a makerspace and one of the thing I’d like to do is offer a class where the student would build an MP3DP from scratch, then use it to print parts for the next class. The class fee would cover the cost of their printer and they’d be able to take the printer home with them at the end of the…[Read more]
Couldn’t the 72 options be just as easy as colors and sizes as far as your cart software is concerned? Either a pulldown or radio buttons for tubing size, another for power size/board, another for mounts (except that wouldn’t be a radio since you can choose more than one mount).
My daughter runs a business in Seattle (http://www.jennygirlfriday.com/) helping startups. Perhaps there’s someone in your area doing the same type of thing? You might then be able to find a marketing dweeb that’s willing to support only a few hours a week or month.
Your buddy is right as to what’s wrong with that file. It has a bunch of NULLs in the middle, and removing them shows that a bunch of the gcode is actually missing. Best to try and resave it. If the save fails the same way, try saving to a different device. If that’s also bad then it’s time for a bug report, since the issue is repeatable.

Some (most) of the cheaper boards use a different chip for the USB connection. They require a different driver and don’t look the same to Device Manager.
With Device Manager open and the COM ports expanded, unplug the Arduino and see which port disappears. Plug it back in and verify it’s the same port that reappears. Windows keeps track of all…[Read more]
It looks like one of the Chinese BIQU boards. I haven’t tried one yet, but other than the USB chip (different than a genuine Arduino uses, so needs different drivers) and the second hot end heater output it should be workable.
