Oh just the same ol,,, I have been playing around with the 3d printer at work alot. Hemi has been side lined for now. Some programming issues have stumped me for now.  Meanwhile, I am thinking up a new design, kinda wanna go bigger  :-) stay tuned !

Hello again RoboHappy,

How is the 3d printing going? How is your SynDaver AXI printer doing?

Any prints yet?

I have been printing many things as I need them. Have yo seen the hand I printed?

Here it is:

or the deer hook above?

I have been using PETG filament - works great for me.

Waiting to see what you come up with :-)

Gmornin there EzAng :-)
Love how the hand is printing out. How much different was it to set up using the PETG over PLA? Im still havent tried it yet.  Ive been printing work related parts on the SynDaver , no robot parts yet. Last time I printed a robot part was on the Monoprice. Had just printed an endcap to an Actobotics part. 
I got a lick out of the deer hook too  :-)

Good morn, RoboHappy,

Thanks for your comments on my beginning printed parts.

I thought 3d printing was a bigger deal then I see here. Only I few people talk about it in this forum - The net is the place for many 3d printing groups I see for all sorts of printing and free  stl sites.

What CAD software do you use?

I might check out Fusion 360

Where do you work that needs parts?

I have never used PLA yet, only had 2 rolls of PETG, so that is what I use. By the net, YouTube and our own tweaking, I figured some good setting for my machine - I see my machine used different settings for PLA - If you want,  I can check later the settings...

thanks again,

EzAng

Its been mostly PLA for me, I tried ABS once on that XYZ printer which failed for me. 

For my job, our drafter uses Solidwork, and we are currently making either small test jigs to hold circuit boards for rework or assembly, or prototypes of small boxes for upcoming product releases.

At home, most of the time I download from Thingiverse and try to tweek if needed with Tinkercad.  Im an old 2D Autocad user, so im still trying to wrap my brain around the the 3d part,lol esp while trying to learn Fusion360 when I have the time. 

Last week I was printing out some of those "Touchless" door hooks I got from the net for my fellow coworkers.

Robots are everywhere:

here are just a few:

Below are some interesting ideas for you to view for your projects:

I see one on Amazon

Here is some interesting robots for you to view https://www.knightscope.com/


Also if you just lookup security robots, there is no end -

This look like an I robot, but acts very different:

On ARC https://synthiam.com/Community/Robots/Ez-face-514

works good

Oh ya that floor map touch screen to make a robot path is a really neat skill, I had that working with my Outdoors Terminator 2 years ago out at the cottage,works great if you have sonar working to avoid any rocks or trees that may be in the way. I think I can use that as well for my Target drones that I want to make.(Like more advanced robotic duck shooting targets)

Wow Nomad, where do you buy these small Meccano  on the internet? I could use some if they are cheap only if in USA or Canada as shipping is so badly delayed from Europe,takes many months.

Oh from Ebay,of course! Will have a look!
