And 3.3.1 came out...to resolve the crashes.

Geez....I guess the testing wasn't very thorough?
We didn't test it with Octoprint plugin. So yeah, shame on us, but it's technically third party (although the issue why it crashed was on us).

Well I saw a few teaser videos posted on Facebook, then I got all the details from a MatterHackers mailing.

I like the dimensions....but $5995 .... ?? A Raise3D N2 Plus is $3300
I've had the displeasure of working with a Raise3D. After 1 print, it already managed to permanently damage it's covers because the bowden tube was rubbing against it (so now the top cover isn't transparent anymore).

The S5 is expensive, sure. But in case of a cheaper machine, you do see why it's cheaper ;)

The thing with the Raise that has always turned be off is the complexity of leveling the bed.

I still think the best large scale one I've liked the most is the gCreate gmax. It isn't enclosed but it has a lot of nice features you'd expect in that price range.

I'm very interested to see the new Ultimaker printer. I am especially interested in the new print surface. I've tried PEI sheets....prints won't come off! I just bought some polypropelene build plates...and prints won't stay on them! Fun times! I really like the Prusa flexible print surface

Searching for a new job
Doing a lot of church stuff
Looking for a girlfriend
Preparing to become a policeman next year
And finishing up my own 3D printer design somewhere in between that :P

I am on a business trip to Switzerland, so no chance to do anything with my printer :-(

I am simply overly busy trying to combine my position at the University with running my own business and spending time on parental leave half way around the planet.

My focus lately, when I am not caught up with all the things I have to do, has been trying to learn how to use the Pocket NC that I bought a few months ago.
It is a super impressive little machine, but 5-axis CNC is a bit more complicated than 3D Printing for sure.

Here is an example of a 0.8 mm needle that I made:

When I tried to make it first time I accidentally put in the wrong tool diameter and the needle came out 0.3 mm thick (!)

I am really stunned how much precision the Pocket NC gives you for that little money and in such a super compact form factor.
