Evolution of a Blog
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.

The "Patience Required" Aspect of 3D Printing
3D Printing is not foolproof and because it takes so long to do a print you may not even know that you have an issue for hours. Hence the patience. Additionally, as you chase higher and higher quality the threshold between success and failure also narrows. In this case I was trying to do a print using a 250 micron nozzle at 100 micron resolution.
