3D Printing for Beginners - Assembling the Ender-3 V2 and Discussing the Basics

  • Robbie has been learning the basics of 3D printing, and purchased an Ender-3 V2. Come along on his journey into 3D printing. As we kick off the series, Robbie assembles his first 3D printer (don't worry, we've sped it up). We'll also discuss some of the exciting things he has learned in his first few weeks with the device, and how he has even customized and printed his own parts to enhance the printer's usability. Plus, a look at his first prints: From Maneki-neko (Lucky cat) to a Dalek figurine (Doctor Who), even these early prints look great!

As an old school Vic 20 fanboi, Robbie's given to liking the new Raspberry Pi 400. After all, it's a full computer inside a keyboard, just like the old days of Commodore and Amiga. But this time, it's got 4 GB RAM and a 1.8 GHz clock speed. Let's get a look at the device, and stick the new Ubuntu 20.10 on there to see how it plays video. We'll also look at a new Google Assistant feature that makes it easy to search for a song, with no app to install. Bekah's here with the news, and Robert's watching Bitcoin as it travels to the moon.

bp9 talks about docker vs. virtual machines, and we talk about the pros and cons of each approach. bp9 likes to build programs that run on both Windows and linux using GTK2 or GTK3. Also shows off his NADSBox, and his cat. Doug describes VENTOY, which allows you to mount many ISOs to an SD-Card and boot off any one of them. Peter asks about sound support in GTK2/3 and bp9 doesn't think it's possible. Repairs on his antenna are going well except for shipping of parts. Solbu is late (again) and is a ghost on Voyagers bridge. Solbu describes the fun of loading Win95 from floppies, and the dangers of backing up machines to each other. bp9 is joined by Doug, Peter, and Solbu.
