    3D Printer Issues: Clogged Nozzle

    After printing perfectly fine for over a year, my Prusa Mini experienced issues, to the point where it became basically unusable for a few weeks. In this note, I'm going to write about the symptoms I saw, what I think caused them, how I overcame the problems, and how I intend to prevent them from happening again in the future.

  2. Biodegradable Filaments

    Published: 2021-10-04

    3D printing is extremely useful and has revolutionized some aspects of what can be made in small workshop and home environments. But plastics are a huge problem, and it sucks to be contributing to that. In this note, I'll examine some options for eco-friendly 3D printing filaments, to explore how we can limit the environmental impact of 3D printing.

  3. Aluminium Extrusion

    Published: 2021-09-23

    Aluminium extrusion ("aluminum", for our North American friends), also called T-slot framing or aluminium profile, is an extremely useful component for building projects in the home shop, especially in combination with 3D-printed parts.

    I haven't had a chance to use it for any projects so far, but I'm very interested. I've started to look into it, and this note is a snapshot of the current state of my research. I intend to update it, as I learn more.
