My Girlfriend wants to bake cookies and we have an insider joke about "Patriotic Sugar Cookies" so I made a patriotic cookie cutter... 3 Minutes Fusion360, let's see how long it takes to print that thing :D

I actually inserted a sleep(1) into a communications frontend with an IoT device to fix a bug (the bug being that the device ignores commands that are sent too rapidly instead of sending an error message back)

So that happens when a constraint can not be solved in Fusion 360

CAD on and on... have built all screws and other hardware, now for some custom parts (could not resist assembling the y table further though) mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/C

You can work around that in fusion and onshape by creating a parameter master “part” from which you derive your other parts. It works but is clunky. Onshape has the ability to make a variable externally visible to the assembly which includes the part which is cool for rails and shafts because you can set their dimensions when importing them, could not find that in fusion.

Version management is far better in onshape. Menu structure of onshape is more like the usual cad software. Scripting is better in fusion (purely by my preference of python over javascript) but in onshape the used scripts live in the project which is better. Onshape has no cam module which is a huge plus for fusion. Both tools have no global parameters to do parametric design which is sad.

Learning Fusion360... Building my 3D Printer in that (I already did in Onshape, which i find a bit more intuitive) notable things so far: Parts management is better in fusion360 (purely ui), difference between assembly and part is better in onshape. Fusion has no standard part library, timeline approach is weird. Performance of onshape is better on slower machines, fusion lags on those. Fusion works offline onshape does not. mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/U

white leds don't emit light directly - they excite a phosphor, similar to how a crt works.

and we're slowly using them to replace orange sodium vapor streetlights.

what i mean is, someday the sky over _every_ port will _literally_ be the color of a television tuned to a dead channel.

So now i exchanged the power supply fan with something much quieter... i hope the meanwell power brick does not actually need that crazy high airflow that the old fan provided... next loudest part: the 30mm hotend cooling fan (and the squeaky old polyurethane belt of the y axis). Oh my this feels like a rebuild already...

Back to the wade extruder sadly... the direct drive needs more work, extrusion was rather inconsistent...

More cabling... now on full trinamic drivers... the thing is finally silent... now it’s the power brick fan that makes most of the noise... gaah mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/Q

Cable management... what for? I mean i will change something in two weeks again... i know myself... and there are some trinamic drivers that have to be wired up... more cabling again... mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/J

Quick build: 18650 charger from protection/charger board, 3D printed housing and a pair of springs. Charges from USB and has a protected output (1A max) on the other end. Planning to do a second one with a switch to switch between regulated 5V (500mA) and regulated 3.3V (700mA) output mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/G mastodon.kampftoast.de/media/n
