    Dialogue with RobH2 has made me wonder and go look at my Thingiverse data. Across the 33 or 34 designs I've bothered to post there, the most "popular" as far as downloads is my take on a parametric...

    It isn't the part I saw that was unique to the Ender 3, but here's a Thingiverse cooling duct with downloads in the hundreds of thousands. That kind of traffic has to almost be annoying in one's...

    I've relegated the i3v to our unfinished basement, and opted to install a Raspberry Pi with Octoprint so I could control & monitor the printer from upstairs. The pi was...

    Hopefully you purchased an SSR that can switch DC loads. An SSR for AC loads won't work with a DC power supply. Also note that you'll have to pay attention to the polarity of the control lines for...
