This project came to life because of a basic need to have an easy (non-fumbling) way to change camera scenes in OBS (Open Broadcaster Software.) I did not want to have to look down to my keyboard and fumble around. I wanted a utility type keyboard that would allow quick and easy changes. Part 1 of this project is the initial brainstorming on what we wanted it to do: Once we knew where it was going (at least at first) we decided it was time to order some parts. Sometimes you can look at things on the internet a million times, but until it isRead More →

Xander was gifted a Fabrikator Mini from Joel (The 3D Printing Nerd.) This video is the unboxing and initial setup, a time-lapse of the first print, a few initial thoughts, and a few bloopers. A HUGE thank you to Joel Telling for this amazing gesture for Xander. If you are into 3D Printing and don’t subscribe to Joel (you must live under a rock) you should. Check out his channel here. And his other channel here. ******************************************************************* Filament used for the initial test: Music that is backing our time-lapse is made by the very talented Jesse del Prado and can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/jessedelprado/417a *******************************************************************Read More →

UnBoxing of the July 2017 Maker Box. This is an ongoing monthly presentation of the unboxing of the monthly Maker Box. We do this for those who are curious about the Maker Box and want to know what it might contain and if it is worth it to them.

Here are a few steps that should help you calibrate your extruder. With 1.75mm Filament you want to use about 90mm per minute. With 3mm filament you want to use 30mm per minute.With 1.75mm Filament you want to use about 90mm per minute. With 3mm filament you want to use 30mm per minute. 1. Mark your filament at 150mm above your extruder. You can use any point of reference as long as it does not change. Something you can always reference again. 2. Using the interface of choice Pronterface, Octoprint, etc.. Send the following codes. A. G92E0 (Resets the extruder) B. G1E100F90 (Use F30 forRead More →

If you have a 3D Printer and you are still moving your gcode to it by SD Card, then this video is for you. I have to admit that I initially setup Octoprint (Octopi) just because I thought it sounded really cool to connect a Raspberry Pi to my 3D Printer. This video will walk you through the process of installing it and getting the basic setup done. You are going to need a couple of programs to start: Octopi: https://octopi.octoprint.org/ Win32 Disk Imager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ Putty: www.putty.org One of the following 2.

We wanted to give an update on the progress of our Anet A8. This video shows a few things we have printed and we talk about a few tweaks we have done to make the printer better. We promised in the beginning that we would not do any major upgrades until at least the 100 hour mark. We exceeded that to 125 hours. Now we will begin some serious upgrades.

This is a video series that was made step by step as we assembled our Original Prusa Research i3 Mk2s 3D Printer. Each step in the assembly process has been individually recorded. If we ran into problems, those problems and the solutions are shown in the videos. These are real time and nothing has been omitted. This way you can work through building yours at the same time if you choose to. (Click the “Read More” for the videos.)Read More →

In this series, well series of one anyway, we assembled our Anet A8. This video is 7 1/2 hours straight. We did clip a little here and there, but the full build is here and solutions to any problems we ran into are included in the video. There will be a progress report on this unit after it has accomplished 100+ hours of printing!
