So last night I tried to print a small miniature. It was basically a small figurine game piece of a dwarf with an hammer and a shield. Took about an hour. The supports were a pain to get off, but he turned out alright for how tiny it is (smaller than a quarter). I have been seeing some guys print some decent ones changing their settings.

So tried printing with some clear filament from a new company last night. While it looked good, it didn't seem to bond very well. Went back to my other brand but in white and that is fine.

Installed a l.e.d. light last night. I'm going to take the next step and just ordered a auto bed leveler for my printer.

Well got my ABL kit in the mail today. I spent almost all afternoon installing it. Flashed my firmware and changed a bunch of things. It's sweet to have auto bed leveling now. But man it took some work to accomplish.

Well I forgot something in my firmware so I had to re-do all the coding yesterday, but I got it dialed in real good now.

Printed this as a test last night. It's very small, a screaming dwarf's head on a pedestal. The pedestal is very detailed but you can't see it from the angle I took it from. It is suppose to be way larger, but I shrunk it down being I was testing with it. I also messed up on some of my settings and supports, but I let it run it's course since I was testing my bed adhesion. I think for being tiny it turned out quite nice. My spray a flat grey primer on it to bring out a little more detail and cover some roughness.

Let's face it, you are married with 2 kids. The pipe laying is a pipe dream now. You need to make money to pay bills, insurance, live life and 3d print so I guess that's it.

Installed touch addon for Octopi and hooked up an old fire tablet for monitoring. Also ordered some new 40mm Noctua fans. Going to print a whole new fan setup this weekend I think.

This thread has proven one of the two of my greatest fears of things needed to happen to create a Skynet scenario. The first one is enhanced unassisted artificial intelligence, and the second... Self replicating machines.

So I printed something new this weekend to test my new printer settings. I printed a 'Aztec Death Whistle'. Some modeled one after the original. I mostly did it as a test to test me new retraction settings. So I had got home with my wife and she said why did you print that skull, I told her the story and she goes that isn't going to sound like that, she said have you tried it and i said no. So she is getting the kids out of the car and she goes try it, So I blow in it. I have never heard anything like that in my life. if was just for a split second but it was like I had summon demons from hell. It literally produces human screams. We all just froze and my kids started crying. I am to scared to blow in it again. Man I don't know how the Aztecs came up with this but I can imagine a multitude of people blowing these coming down a hill at you. I'll try to get a picture of my print.
