#1: The two hosts are geeks and way too excitable!
Kinda a requirement for 3D printing at this point
#2: ACE Hardware can make a duplicate key that works much much faster and, I'm guessing, much cheaper as well.
Pretty sure they won't accept a picture on your phone as the source to copy though...

Good reason to keep a back up copy somewhere safe.

Mrs. Schnell gave me a really nice set of lock picks a few Christmases back. Much better than the ones I made in elementary school. I cut a torque lever out of one of my dad's good saw blades with a pair of his tin snips back then - got a whipping for that, but it was worth it.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

FINALLY!!!

Only took 3 weeks of taking the printer apart, putting it back together, getting it dialed in, try printing, and repeating, but I finally have a successful 2 color toy boat to show for my frustration :roll:

Edit: WTH Schnelly!?! I thought you fixed the orientation issue...

He did fix it. Those boats just fell off the edge.

Lots of pain to get there, but a perfect print with no assistance from me at all. When it cooperates this MMU is going to be cool.

That's the shit right there.

Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Hey Schnelly. Look at at that clean plate and lack of rafts with 3x47mm foot prints!

Jelly? :mrgreen:

What it is? Sliding top box? When are going into production and start selling on ETSY? I know the boat would be a big seller.
