Tell us about yourself!
I started my teardrop during the winter of 2018 when HF stopped selling their trailers. After doing some digging, it turns out that the tires that HF were using were not DOT approved, so they had to pull them all. There was a similar recall a few years before that for DOT non-compliant lighting. Glad they're back on the shelves. We bought a beat up, used 1100 lb trailer on Craigslist for around $300. If you're looking for something a little heavier duty, you can get a Ironton from Northern Tool for about $550, though the stores are few and far between scattered mostly though Texas.
Don't mean to downplay your ible (very clear instructions and nice photos), but after seeing this I looked on amazon and there are a lot of these that sell for about $10. Bought one and installed it and it works great.
3D Scanning Class
I have yet to try the method outlined in this 'ible, but from my understanding of the process, using two gcodes seems like the way to go if you're not going to sit there watching your print. I've seen what happens to a model if the head pauses mid-print and you're not there to move it before it melts a giant corner of your print. On the flip side, at least for ABS (I haven't work with PLA much), if you stop and restart a print with too much time in between, the top layers of the ABS aren't pliable enough to stick to the next layer, and you can get gaps when the ABS cools. I'm sure there's a way to leave the hotbed on in the g-code after the first print so that it stays somewhat pliable and stuck to the glass. Anyway, thanks for the great instructable (even if your choice of schools is a...

DIY Indoor Outdoor Concrete Lamp 2
I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I had a hard time getting the bearings in. When I finally got the last one in place the center snapped. I have my printer dialed and my tolerances are low, so I think the bearing holes are a little on the small side. Perhaps it's the difference between pla and abs (I use abs) as pla is a little bit more flexible. Going to make the holes a tiny bit wider and see what happens. Otherwise, been playing with the broken three bearing fidget and I absolutely love it.
Look into a P3Steel. They're great, reliable rep-raps.
