  Site Email Broken Again

Hi All,

Google has once again screwed up our email setup. The site is unable to send registration emails. My apologies - I will work through this asap.

  Gravity Sketch!
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2020-08-31, 10:09 PM - Forum: 3D Printing Software - Replies (1)

Hi All,

We acquired an Oculus Quest to help my son enjoy the pandemic a little more Smile.

Eventually, I heard about Gravity Sketch. OH MY GOD - this program is awesome!

It's hard to express just how magnificent this is in comparison to regular 3D modeling programs (which are fundamentally 2D in how they display things on a screen).

With Gravity Sketch - YOU are in the space with the model. You can walk around your design, or through it. When you draw, objects are created where your hand moved in 3D space.

You can draw a complex 3D curve simply by moving your hand in three dimensions - and then, you can create a complementary curve by threading your stroke right through and all around the first one.

It exports to .obj, and most if not all operations produce manifold objects - so it's quite suitable for producing output for 3D printing. It imports as well, if you want to start from existing objects.

As if that wasn't mind blowing enough (and it is, believe me) - the price of the software right now is $22. Yep, twenty two dollars. Now, for best effect, you need a Quest or other VR headset as well - but take my word for it - this is the best deal I've ever heard of for 3D modeling software.

If I didn't impress upon you how different and fantastic this is, feel free to ask questions. Is it perfect? No. Does it have every feature just the way I want it? No. But at the moment I can't imagine modeling in anything else (although, starting something in OpenSCAD might be useful to get engineering scale more easily at the start).

Everyone - if you have a VR headset - buy this immediately. If you don't have a headset, consider if the price of the best 3D software ever were $522 for a lifetime license. It would still be a steal - go buy a Quest too, if you do modeling. I don't think you'll regret it.

Hello,

To anyone who can see this message...

I checked the site today, and there were 18 users active in the last 5 minutes. Of course, likely none of those users was real - the vast majority were hack attempts.

Heck, for all I know, they've been succeeding. The forum software is fairly out of date, and updating will be complicated.

So, I turned on "Login Required". You won't see this unless you log in - and the only person I know who actually logs in is Mooselake (Hey Mooselake Smile  ).

I will probably leave things this way for a bit to give any would-be attackers time to pick a new target.

Sorry for the inconvenience, if any.

Since you logged in, whoever you are, why don't you make a post a start a conversation here?

I hope all are faring well during the pandemic.

Hi All,

I totally missed the registration of our newest user - I'm lucky I saw it when I did.

I just didn't see the email, so there was quite a delay before they were activated.

My apologies!

Hi All,

I believe that our site email problems are solved, so therefore I have re-enabled new user registrations.

Let us know if you see any issues with the site sending email.

If you do notice a problem you should be able to send to us at: fabric8rsite@gmail.com

Thanks,

Hi All,

While I work out our site email issues, I've disabled new user registrations.

Anyone trying to register wouldn't really make it through the process anyway.

I expect this situation will last for at least several days, but more likely a week or two. It's an area I'm not super familiar with, and I just don't have the time to put into it.

Registrations will re-open as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Stan

I’m glad I found this forum, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of info out there. Anyway.... I’m relatively new to 3D printing, but not new to building. I guess by most people’s standards I would still be considered a newbie, I have been doing this for 7 or 8 months. I have a thing for small printers, I have a few Kickstarter printers already (yes I have an addictive personality lol) I stumbled on an old review on the OneUp... you guessed it, I need one!(or 3). Does anybody have any idea where I might be able to find a OneUp? I have found a TwoUp version2 and a version3, I can’t really find anything that shows what the differences are between them, any ideas? currently have the following

Cetus MK1, MK2, MK3
Trinus/Panowin F1
PrintrBot Simple Metal
PrintrBot original Kickstarter (still new in the box) 

Thanks in Advance 
Dom

Hi All!

I'm pretty sure the email setup for the site just suffered a malfunction - so new user emails may not be going out right now.

I hope to have it straightened out soon.

Hi All,

If you were lucky enough to see it, the third-party theme that the site had been using for years exploded Smile.

Apparently, some images served from a remote site were removed. I had no idea there were remotely hosted images involved, or I never would have selected the theme.

At any rate, I've had to fall back to the default theme. I tossed an old attempt at a logo in as well.

Please let me know if you notice any functional issues that need to be addressed.

Thanks! And welcome to the (highly unexpected) new look for the forum!

Hi All,

The theme I have been using forever apparently relies on an image from an external server.

Morons.

So, I'm tracking it down now....

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
