I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA and I occasionally make things and post stuff online. Blogging since 1997 and can't seem to stop. Please enjoy these wonderful links to other places:

Is this about letting Nazis speak on UW campuses?

The design for this one was a digital drawing (though sometimes it's just analog/paper) and I then 3D printed a plate and did a relief print using a Provisional Press. (I'm also really into rainbow rolls lately!) I make my own paper and this is from a recent batch. (I recycle our shredded paper at home.) The frame is 3D printed and I designed that as well.

Thanks! Yeah, I really had fun making paper last month so now it's time to print on all of it. (And then I'll make some more!)

Here's a post (and some photos) about the paper I make: https://rasterweb.net/raster/2023/12/19/handmade-paper/

The frame is 6" x 6" and the print is just a bit smaller than that.

Thanks! I've though about doing more... I started working on a trash can icon yesterday and I'll see where it takes me.

Made an enclosure for my beepy. I think enclosures are my favourite part of printing (lemmy.world)

I grabbed a beepy a little while back (if interested BE ADVISED: they’ve since gone dark and left a bunch of people holding out for one, I got really lucky and ordered super early) so I could work on some python stuff on the go. I didn’t like having all the parts exposed, and the cases available seemed too flimsy for my...

Looks good! I'd guess 80% of my printing is enclosures. ;)

If you want it to get worse just change it from a hobby to a business!

Sweet! I'd like to have my lead pipes replace at some point.

Artemis app broken - is the project still alive?

I've enjoyed using Artemis even though I can't login through it (I'm on kbin). It's been interesting to be a pure lurker instead of an avid commenter like I was on the former site. In the past couple of days, though, Artemis has failed to fetch any new content. Deleting the iOS app and reinstalling through Testflight does...

My iOS app won't work anymore but I'm trying to be patient and understand that it's an open source project led by one person so there may be delays or issues that prevent progress or even things running smoothly. Hopefully it will return and improve with time.

OpenSCAD is great for programmers because you write code to generate 3D objects. If you love Python there are ways to write Python that then generates OpenSCAD code, so that may be worth looking into.

Well, I hate Microsoft but yay for business in our state I guess?

Well that's, uh.. interesting. So hugh project, money, but not really many new jobs. Oh well.

That's really strange. I run 6 Ender-3 S1 printers at work and tend to only level them if there is an issue or we change build plates... maybe once a month at most, and we print a lot. I did go through the process of leveling with the knobs and sliding a piece of paper under the nozzle to get it just right, but when they print well, all is good.

The 1983 film War Games is what taught me it was okay to give up...

"That’s only economical if your time is worth nothing." Well, we should all be able to live lives where we can pursue things that do not have monetary rewards. Obviously not everyone is in that position but perhaps for David Florian exploring and learning and trying things is what makes him happy. Of course for him it probably makes money as well, even if indirectly. The fact that his video got shared means more people will see it, and more views means more money, so there's the value for David Florian. It's also worth considering that in science, it's all about trying things and gathering information that will hopefully lead to new (and hopefully lower cost) capabilities.

I've had one for about a month, and I've been printing nearly non-stop with it. If you just want a printer that works out of the box, prints fast, and prints really nice... It's a great machine. I've owned and operated a lot of printers (at work, at home, at school, at a makerspace) over the last 12 years, and I'm not a fan of the cloud or proprietary hardware but, damn... this thing prints really, really nice... and fast.
