  1. I use these with my Eclaire XL and a small USB keyboard. Works pretty well and reasonably priced. https://www.4keyboard.com/commodore-keyboard-stickers/591-2840-commodore-atari-non-transparent-keyboard-stickers.html#/21-key_size-11x13/32-background_color-black
  2. @mrrobot is this a remix of one of your designs? If so, I'd be wondering why the derivative wasn't released?
  3. Thingiverse is ... not good. it's better than anything else, but unfortunately, the bar was not very high so...
  4. Yep. I added this to help that: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3052488
  5. I installed this on my printer and immediately had issues where the extruder wasn't pulling filament. The gear got clogged with plastic and when I tried to remove it to clean it, the head of one of the set screws was rounded out. I was able to gently pry it off, but didn't want to hammer it back on, so I ordered a new aluminum extruder that came with a new gear. But, I'm not sure that side-mount is less stress on the extruder. Pulling up (ish) from the side seems to take more work than pulling down from above. -Todd
  6. 30 minutes to 36 hours. Really. It depends on how fine you print it and how big it is. This is the "dot matrix" era of 3-D printing.
  7. with mine on the bed, it looks like the bed isn't moving and the rest of the printer (and the room) are moving back and forth. It makes it much easier to see what is happening.
  8. to monitor the print job and make sure it isn't failing
  9. Also, I REALLY like having my Octoprint Camera attached to the bed. This is what I printed to allow that: Bed Mount: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3166905 I used arms from this (use whichever length and configuration to put the camera where you want it): https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2194278/files I used this to hold the camera: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2931401 This is the camera I used: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B071WP53K7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And this is the ribbon cable set to get the right length: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SM6JTTM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Which metal extruder did you buy? I bought one that made things worse and just went back to the plastic one. Thanks.
  11. Okay. If that is a pro, never mind on the glass bed, I guess. Mine is not a pro, and it's also the Reality version. So, I guess I don't have that EXACT printer.
  12. Nice. I have that exact printer. I'd like to recommend that you consider a glass bed for it. (You will likely need larger binder clips to hold it on.) This is the one I bought and I've been pretty happy with it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F16WPR5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. Woot has a couple of printers discounted today. (13 hours left...) https://computers.woot.com/plus/your-choice-3d-printers?ref=w_gw_dd_3
  14. I just went through my Amazon History earlier today. Since I got a printer in December 2017, I have purchased 61 rolls of filament. 16 different brands. 25 rolls of hatchbox, 11 rolls of 3D Solutech, 4 Inland. No other brand was purchased more than twice. I have been pretty happy with Hatchbox and the 3D Solutech. I purchased 21 different colors, 16 white, 15 black, no other color more than 4 times I've averaged $19.08 per roll, or another way to look at that, is I've spent over $1,100 on Filament. So, with all of that, my two favorites are Hatchbox and 3D Solutech (in that order).
