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.
