StackExchange curate some excellent Q&A forums. They also have a fairly rigorous open process for deciding which new forums to start. A proposal for a forum dedicated to 3D printers, laser cutters and other sorts of personal manufacturing is currently going through that process. Today they entered the “commitment” phase, asking people who would like to use the forum to commit to asking at least 10 questions in the first 3 months. If you’re interested in this forum appearing – and I suggest you probably are – then please visit this link and make your commitment known. http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/22246/3d-printers-laser-cutters-personal-manufacturing cheers Phil
Johan has brought out a new accessory for MakerBeam: the Eye Plate.
Now I’m trying to work out what I will use it for! I wonder if it would hold a pencil for my simple plotter.
… more picking and packing today. Not exciting, but satisfying at the end of the day to see a pile of boxes in the back of the UPS van.
I’m learning more about Hot Ends than I ever expected to!
Have picked and packed 40 small orders today, and about a dozen full kits.
Now labelling fast, to see how many boxes we can get on the carrier this evening.
No promises, but I hope we can clear the backlog this week (maybe working all weekend).
Will keep you all posted!
