Re: "Robotic" 3D printer names

IIRC the Ender 5 series are core XY designs where the print nozzle moves in the X&Y directions and the build plate in the Z direction. The Ender 3 series copy the Prusia design where the build plate moves in the Y direction, and the print nozzle in the X & Z directions. Technically, the Core...

"Robotic" 3D printer names

About 8-10 years ago I built my first 3D printer from scratch. It's design was based on various designs found in the online Rep-Rap project. At the time many 3D printer companies were naming themselves, or their products with the word 'robot' in the name, such as Makerbot or Printerbot. So I named b...

Re: 183, Japanese People from Space (--,--)

I always wondered about the 'joke' with police cars drawn as dogs. I thought that was an American joke, not something the Japanese would have thought of.

Re: ABOUT TO REPLACE MY OLD HDD, BUT--

So long as the interface is compatible (ie: SATA), then no problems. The cache is an internal buffer in the hdd that is faster to read and write than the disk itself. If your computer can't keep up with the fastest speed possible on the interface (ie: doesn't support the faster, but backward compati...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

You can get extension cables for the power leads (male on end, female the other) and then mount the SSD anywhere you want. There are also 4 pin molex (old style HD power) to SATA power extension cables available, and many computers have at least one unused HD molex power lead available.

Re: New members, please introduce yourselves here

I've also used Google Earth (google maps) to find the museum, and then was able to walk into it from the street view. Only part of the museum was actually on line, but most of the lower level was.

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

SSD's (those with metal cases and SATA interfaces) wouldn't be affected by the minimal static generated by velcro. However, I used small magnets to hold one to the bottom of my case computer case. I wouldn't use magnets with a spinning HD, but SSD's don't care. I glued the magnets to a 3D printed mo...
