  • 1:50:52 the moment when a convo has come to an awkward end for the third time but nobody knows who should hang up or walk away first to not seem rude. 😂

  • I would 100% watch a channel of Neil building out a shop.

    RadicalxEdwardRadicalxEdwardVor 14 Stunden
  • Man I remember having that hopeful cheer at the idea of “designing my own stuff to print” lol. If only it were that simple. Though you’d be amazed how much you can make just adding/removing shapes/objects right inside Prusa Slic3r these days.

    RadicalxEdwardRadicalxEdwardVor 14 Stunden
  • Lol not surprised he didn’t really get into slicers/Open SCAD here. Though I probably would go over that with him after the stream cause even using default slicer settings that really opens up what you can make without much effort.

  • 1:43:00 that’s exactly how things felt for me with 3D printing. I followed it when you still had to build them yourself from dot matrix printer parts and it was all just too much work for too little reward. Then I got into it this year and it’s been a headache and a half but a really fun learning experience and I’m getting better at making stuff all the time. It’s definitely not at Star Trek “ask for a thing and it’s there” level yet, but we’re getting there. I couldn’t be happier with my Ender 3 and the quality it puts out for a newbie. Better than a lot of pros but with much older machines that just aren’t as accurate.

  • 1:34:00 Neil: “we’ll go to sleep and when we wake up we’ll have a dragon” Joel: “it’s possible” Lol that feeling when you set a long print and then come back to a spaghetti monster or the blob.

    RadicalxEdwardRadicalxEdwardVor 14 Stunden
  • 1:29:00 I bet everyone has that feeling when they first get into 3D printing and their mind goes crazy with all the things they think of making. Then they hit the low point of hitting the limitations of 3D printing. Then they go back up to a more stable level of getting the most out of their particular setup.

  • This was great to watch, it is nice that you two got to get together and let us into his initial experience. Will you be showing him how to setup and use a slicer separately? Since he was asking you how to get models from a computer to the printer it will be a big part of using the printers.

Obviously you've honed that making videos, but incredibly quick on your feet and spectacular with adults and kids alike.

  • Cool video, you're an inspiration. Wanted a 3d printer for 20 years. Finally bought a Anycubic i3 Mega S. Bad choice, i should have gotten a Prusa. Right out of the box test print sucked and i spent weeks tuning, now a new Cura 4.9 came out and the setting for my printer have made it a paperweight pretty much, not sure i wanna tune it again, even after tinkering for hour retraction sucked. Now i have to convince my wife 3d printing doesn't suck, just that machine. If people out there read this, DO NOT BUY THE CHEAPEST PRINTER YOU CAN.

  • So funny... keep alcohol close to electronics... sounds like great advice lol... Never needed to use alcohol to clean the print bed because glue sticks work better as I learned from your old videos Joel. You can run endless prints without ever cleaning the print bed. If you have a good printer the print just comes off when the bed cools and if you have a bad printer glue is better than alcohol every time.

The first $36,000/Year is tax free to lift everyone out of poverty and eradicate homelessness and labor exploitation! Flat tax of 3% after $36,001 and up to $100,000. Flat tax of 7% of $100,001 and up to $400,000. Flat tax of 11% of $400,001 and up to $1 million. Flat tax of 15% of $1 million and up to $11 million. Then to eradicate and punish greed; a massive tax of 55% anything over $11 million! Goal is to purge extreme greed and greed will increase UBI structure /“/
