  First-ever Featured Moderator!
Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-28, 11:30 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

Hello Everyone,

Please join me in welcoming our first-ever Featured Moderator - Scott Hepner!


Scott is a talented and experienced maker, with around 30 years of experience as a goldsmith and gemologist. In addition to his jewelry industry experience, he is also building his portfolio as a knife-maker. If it has to do with jewelry and metalworking, he probably has some idea how to help - and that why we are extremely pleased to have Scott checking in on our Jewelry and Metalworking forum.

One of the challenges for the new Fabric8r.com is convincing folks that there might be something of value here. Scott's presence immediately raises our credibility in this area, and we couldn't be happier to have him on board.

Welcome, Scott!

I guess it's time for me to introduce myself.

I'm Stan, and my handle on the forums is MisterAcoustic. I'm also known here as 'Administrator' Smile.

I'm the new proprietor of fabric8r.com.

My background is primarily in software development, but I've always had an amateur interest in the hardware side of things. I'm always trying to be more of a 'maker', but I generally just dabble in things. The original QU-BD OneUp that I picked up from their kickstarter campaign, and then upgrading it to a TwoUp were good challenges for me, if that gives you any idea Smile.

There are so many things happening in technology today, where fabulous capabilities are available to individuals that have never been available before - and I am very pleased to be witnessing it.

In fact, I hope to add to it in some small degree, someday. For now, as I've said elsewhere, I welcome everyone to the new site, and encourage you to sign up to make the community here larger, better, and stronger.

Nice to meet you all Smile

  Another Kickstarter project
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 11:00 PM - Forum: General 3D Printing - Replies (1)

This kickstarter campaign is a bit older, but I just saw it, and wanted to mention it here.

I didn't see much of interest initially, but then I figured out that they are using a 'top down' printing approach (which is what the Peachy Printer would have used had it survived).

They fill the vat mainly with glycerine, and only put the resin on top of the glycerine. This allows things to be made without supports in some cases because the liquid provides some support.

The price is a bit high for me, but I thought it was worth a mention. They don't actually focus much on the top down technique, but I think that is the main thing that differentiates it from quite a few printers that are similar otherwise.

Hello Everyone,

I upgraded my version of Firefox to the latest, and I discovered that the Contact page on the main site was giving a 404 not found error.

I had to convince FF to really reload the page (ctrl-F5) in order to get it to display.

So, it occurred to me that others might be experiencing similar issues with the main site, or the forums.

If you are having trouble for some reason, but can see this post, feel free to contact us at: fabric8rsite@gmail.com

We will do our best to get you straightened out.

  3D Printer currently o Kickstarter
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 10:03 PM - Forum: General 3D Printing - No Replies

In case you aren't following kickstarter, I spotted a relatively new 3D printer campaign today:


I don't know what to make of it overall, but it does appear to have a ton of features, while being quite inexpensive in the smaller version. On the other hand, the smaller version is really quite small Smile.

  Graph-based modeler, Antimony
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2017-11-17, 08:29 PM - Forum: 3D Printing Software - No Replies

Hi All,

I just found this. It was apparently released a few years ago, but I had never seen it. It looks like a nice alternative similar to OpenSCAD.



It requires a little work - depending on your platform, you might have to build the software yourself:

I'm looking forward to checking it out a little more closely - but I'm on a variety of linux where I'll have to build it. So, I haven't done that yet.

Hope someone finds this useful.

Hi All!

I am anxiously awaiting my Kudo3D Bean resin printer.

I backed the kickstarter:

Anyone else out there getting in on this one?

I'm very hopeful that the end result will be a very capable printer at a very nice price (for me anyway, since I backed on day 1 and got early bird pricing) Smile.

  Calling All Q3D/QU-BD Owners and Interested Parties
Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-15, 09:12 PM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - No Replies

Hello Everyone!

There are a lot of folks checking in here, but at the moment, there isn't a lot of content. So they just keep lurking.

I'm calling on everyone with an interest to go ahead and join the forums, so that everyone can see how many people are really here.

The more people who are willing to participate, the more valuable the resource will be for all of us.

Come on! Join us, and let others see that they are not alone.

If I have my way, it only gets better from here.

  New User Activation Delays
Posted by: Administrator - 2017-11-13, 02:09 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - No Replies

Hi All,

If you choose to register for the forums, the Administrator should be sent an email asking them to activate your account.

Right now, there seems to be a huge delay in the sending of those emails. One user registered, and I did not get the email for 4 hours.

I have no clue why this is happening, but I will look into it.

In the meantime, just be aware that there may be a delay. I am monitoring the forums as often as possible to catch new user registrations, but I'd much rather the technology work the way it should Smile.

Hi Stan,

I think the link to the forums should be more prominent.  Perhaps even in the menu bar above.  Just an observation.
