Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I would rather say I am contributing to a very nerdy plane spotter tool :-) If you run a receiver for them, you get a free FR24 Business Subscription which gives you more filters and stuff. I like to use their site to check if the plane, that serves the flight I am currently waiting for, is on time ...

Re: Garden Hose Adapter

If watertight is a requirement, I would go for a 100% infill - especially if it is such a small part.

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I finally found the time to setup my own receiver for Flightradar24! I did some testing first with the small antenna that came with the DVB-T stick from my office and got already signals from 10-15 planes in a range of ~40 km. I then printed a antenna mount for the dedicated 1090 MHz antenna and a w...

Re: Garden Hose Adapter

Have you tried annealing the PLA print? You need to do some testing to find out how to compensate for the shrinking of the print during the annealing process, but afterwards it should be denser and maybe more water tight.

Re: Revive a spool of brittle PLA - is it possible?

Water absorption is unlikely since I also have a fairly dry climate here and the spool was stored most of the time in a sealed bag with drying bags. We have a food dryer. I need to check if that one has a fairly stable temperature regulation and could be used. I think that would be a more efficient ...

Revive a spool of brittle PLA - is it possible?

Hi all,

I have a nearly full spool of black PLA that is extremely brittle and snaps at the slightest touch. Is it possible to revive the material somehow? Or do I have to dump the full spool?

Re: How to setup the Octoprint Plugin for Cura!

I am tempted to give Octoprint another try after all the promotion that you do for it :-) The first time I tried it, it seemed not very useful as I start my prints from SD and OctoPrint couldn't handle that - I do not know if it was the ulti-gcode or the fact that the print was not started by Octopr...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

For an upcoming motion detector based LED strip project I needed a way to enable/disable the whole solution so that it is only active during the night. So I fired up Fusion 360 and came up with this nice little case: 2018-05-31 11.21.00.jpg It contains a Sonoff Basic with the Tasmota firmware for sw...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Agree! Maker and Education is what they have been good at and should concentrate on. But as long as people buy the UM3 and now the UM5 as "industrial grade" for "industrial grade prices"... why not take their money :-)
