Hi! Thank you for the feedback, and you are correct in your observation about filaments being hygroscopic.However, I have been 3D printing (both professionally and personally, in various geographies, in various seasons) for several years now and it has been a long time since I stopped taking specific precautions around creating humidity-managed environments. To this day, I am yet to notice any material affect of storage on the success rate or the print quality of my creations.I think if you're doing something super controlled and very specific, or believe that your print quality is poor due to how you're storing your filament, go right ahead and take the relevant storage precautions. But for almost any DIY projects, it's likely immaterial.

Neat idea, but 3D printing stuff that handles food is a dangerous practice!The issue is not the PLA itself, which is usually safe for food, but other factors in the 3D printing process (like a contaminated hot end, chemical coloring of the filament, etc). I would encourage the author to put a disclaimer in the tutorial introduction on this to avoid inadvertently harming any maker.Source: https://all3dp.com/1/food-safe-3d-printing-abs-pla-food-safe-filament/

Alright, I have an answer for you. Download this repository as a ZIP file: https://github.com/cmaglie/FlashStorageThen in your Arduino IDE, go to Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library, add select the file you downloaded. Your code should compile thereafter.
I didn’t change anything, but I’m glad it worked out for you! In other news, my Alexa skill got approved and published so look for an update soon! :)
Thank you! Good luck with your project as well!
Interesting.. I don’t think I scouted it anywhere special. But I’ll check and get back to you on this.
Hey! You're right, Alexa is a lot to get your head around, so let me try helping you out. For starters, yes this is a custom Lambda function. Did you define the Endpoint in the skill editor correct? It should be arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:074765571920:function:alexa-deathstar, which points to my custom Lambda function. This function is also what plays the Imperial March, which is stored as an audio file on my S3 account.If your endpoint and model are all defined as instructed, then pass me what you see in your Skill I/O JSON Input window and I'll try debugging.By the way, I'm still trying to get the Alexa skill published (its close to being certified), so once that gets released, you won't have to worry about any of this setup! Still worth a shot to figure this out and debug for learning :)
Hi! The STL files are in mm. I've updated the tutorial with the info now. Didn't know OSH Park could share, but I've done it now: https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/QZhr7zpGThanks for the tip!
