  • Fiber Optic LED Lamp

    Could you break out each piece from the STL file into separate files so it would be easier to print on small printers? Thanks.

    I've never worked with tinkercad before but when I load your STL file all parts are selected and trying the ungroup button does nothing.

    Thank you very much. I will enjoy building your creation.

  • Shoji Lamp (3D Printed)

    I really like the looks of this lamp. My question is about the side panels. Are they printed in two different colors or are the patterns just thicker and therefore less translucent?

  • The Neopixel LED Vase

    Like glennfoyster I could not get the filament to slide into the vase and I destroyed the vase in the process. Should the filament be cold or still warm and pliable? Did you use some kind of lubrication in your build? Did you slide the filament in or snap it in to the vase?Any help would be appreciated.

  • The Neopixel LED Vase

    Yes I now have the Prusa printing great with the PETG used in your project. Yes I found that preheating the bed and letting it set for a couple of minutes seems to do the trick. I am using the PEI base plate. Thanks Martin for the redesign of the base, it works perfect.

  • The Neopixel LED Vase

    I need to have a very slight modification done to the vase base. I need to increase the width of the shelf the processor sets on to 1 1/8". I've looked at trying to edit your STL file but that seems like the learning curve is very steep. I would be willing to pay you to make this edit for me. If you are interested, email me at calhjh@gmail.com. Thanks

  • The Neopixel LED Vase

    You made me do it. I purchased a Prusa just like yours for this specific project. I'm having a lot of beginner issues like getting the PETG to stick on the bed even after cleaning it and running the first layer calibration. Assuming I get the basics to work, What quality mode did you print the base and the vase with? ultradetail, detail, quality, speed, draft?Thanks for any additional information you can give.

  • The Neopixel LED Vase

    Thanks for responding. I think I might buy a 3D printer just to reproduce your project. It's beautiful!

    How long did it take to print the vase and base?

  • ESP8266 DfPlayer Audio Player

    Would it be possible to get a listing of what the song directory looks like before and after running the script. I'm trying to get my head around the transformation of the filenames

    Thanks for the reply. I think I get it now.

  • While you were at it why didn't you include the code that connects to the WiFi so all of the Wifi code is always in one place and you would never have to mess with SSIDs or Passwords in your main sketch? You could add a method to your library called connect and just call it when you want WiFi
