    I don't think you can formulate anything into 74 that would make a rectangle of 24 packs. They must have a empty dummy box or two in it.

    Yep, no doubt.

    Probably an orientation thing, some sideways etc. Lifting it would be interesting

    Isn't PBR supposed to be the hipster / indie beer of choice?

    It's the working man's beer but hipsters have tried to take it over in years past.

    Working my day job....but also printing a 3D model.  Had a couple failed attempts yesterday.  I'm digging this 3D printer.  It's fun and at times frustrating.  Learning curve isn't that bad.  I'm into anything mechanical/electrical.

    So I learned a few things on this 3D stuff.

    Downloaded Ultimaker Cura software.  Loaded up a SLA file I found on the web and "sliced" it into the g-code file which is what I feed into the printer.

    Need a part for a flag pole outside, I opened Fusion 360, drew the part.  Generated a vector graphic file, same deal with Cura.

    Found some other software, haven't loaded or used it yet, but I can take pictures from all angles around an item, load them up in the software and generate a surface mesh map. Run filtering, smoothing, etc and generate a 3D file that I feed into Cura, slice and print.

    Cool stuff.  I might digitize a BGE.

    My buddy (the Artist guy that works in my shop) took the demolition hammer I bought and mostly cleared out an old sump I can put my sump pump in and mitigate getting "Lake Pontchartrain" in the back whenever it rains hard.  He also chiseled out a run for the drain pipe and electrical.  Not bad for a cheap chinese demolition hammer (like $150 bucks).

    my first (successful) print.  Almost 5 hours.   Used ABS filament, all I have right now.  ABS is strong but not the easiest to use.  Ordered some PLA which is much better at detail work and less prone to failing.

    Should also keep in mind that ABS emits some rather toxic fumes and is best exhausted from an enclosed printer cabinet to the outdoors.
    PLA is not nearly as toxic but it is still preferable to ventilate the printer area as best you can.
    Also, also, it is not unheard of for some of these printers to randomly  release the magic smoke and/or burst into flames so I wouldn't keep your printer set up on a space full of combustible products or near a wall that could catch fire and burn your house down.

    Also, also, also if running in a separate room or location it can be very useful to have a web cam set up so you can keep an eye/ear out for troubles. I used a spare older model of my Nest cams which allowed me to keep a browser window open so I could see and hear it running in case things went sideways.

  • Especially working the day jobs this week. Still kicking around the idea of a next-gen connected smoker controller (except I'll never be associated with such a thing after the "Misery" adaptations I've starred in).

    Does that printer have a separate "jet", with dissolvable material, to allow large "overhangs"?  Your Sushi Cat has soft-enough overhangs it may have not been necessary.
    I was assigned to the MXSG 3-D Printing Lab for a year, but was not allowed to work that job (long story).  They had 3 smaller printers, and a $500K printer that could make just about anything, in plastic, up to 2' x 2' x 3' (I think they have one that does titanium now).

     Make sure you know where it drains,  and make sure you don’t flush anything down it you wouldn’t drink more or less, you probably already know that.

    That drain is defunct.  I had filled it up with concrete a couple years ago..  I'm going to put the sump pump there and drain it in the alley way (cement drain canal).  Yeah, it's rain water (after running through the shop floor).  Illegal for me to pipe into the sewage main.

    Good point.  I didn't even think about the fumes.  No noticeable smell with the ABS or PLA I've used.   I'm going to put my printers in my workshop and will probably build enclosures for them (they work better).  

    Fire is definitely a hazard.  We have a smoke detector.  When I get them in the shop I'll have to put some measures in place.  I have a monitored NVR system with high def cameras

    @Botch these are filament extrusion printers.  They can do horizontal bridges an overhangs.  If the design exceeds the material limits, you can design removable supports.  Everything is built layer by layer from the bottom up.  The work sticks to the build platform pretty well.  It has to, that Y axis jerks the work back and forth pretty violently.
