The challenge. I learn new things for the challenge, too.

It's a way to measure skill and get a validation of the effort made to improve your ability. If I put in a lot of time practicing a thing, I can go test my competency against others who are skilled at it. If I "win", it is a reward/measure for the effort I put into improving.

Well, I bet if I swept real good, including under the desk & shelves, I could find enough m3 hardware to build a RailCore, maybe two.

I just picked up a synology during prime day. Setup today, was a breeze. Seems plenty flexible, too.

Their terms of service are enough for me to stay far, far away.

Funny how something as minor as a cell phone dying is enough to totally mess up my plans for the weekend. Back in business with a new one. I hate Cell Phone companies.

I got my start on Unix with FreeBSD back in '96, but probably haven't used it since 2003 or so. Rock solid OS, though... Wish I had it set up to help you out.

My second RailCore happened because I had enough test parts left over from the first, I figured why not? lol

I've had that issue exactly with Cura before. Not sure if it's fixed now, but prints looked like that. If I missed setting 1.75 as the filament diameter when adding a custom printer, changing it later didn't really change it. I had to delete and recreate it to fix.

Two of them! (They're the little ones, the 250mm^3 version)

I have at least half a dozen open spools laying out on open shelves right now

I really need to figure out a way to re-arrange my printing room to use a repbox for my filament. That's fantastic!

Good article. I'd throw in things like internal voids and "trapped" solid parts to the list. Things simply not possibly any other way.
