#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.

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.
