3D Printing

If you build it, they will come.

I got hold of a 3D printer this week, and I’ve been playing around printing things.

I’ve been slicing things on the PC and loading them onto SD card and then letting them print.

I was messing around trying to get a webcam streaming setup, didn’t find anything with a stream latency I was happy with.

Then I came across Octoprint, and Octopi, and oh my. It can control the printer, it can do timelapse, it can do streaming.

Not going to print anything tonight but I’ll set it off tomorrow and it should livestream to my page.


I’d best print something useful/fun.

Not sure where the last 3-4 hours have gone, but I’ve had a lot of fun hacking around with hardware and software.
