This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Down to Brass Tacks...
...on getting the Duplicator 4S dialed in. This is pretty high level of detail work. The layer height is 0.1mm and as you can see from the coin the objects are pretty small. It is just certain angled shapes that seem to cause the printer some issues. The columns are all nice as is the very base of the pyramid. Even the loop at the top is good. Just one corner of each of the columns going up at an angle has a rough edge!
On a larger (2x) version the effect is less but the back of the leg is much rougher than the front.
