Im listening to BBC Sounds "this is Capitalism", and even in BBC's impartial, balanced and informative approach, I haven't heard a single thing about Capitalism that makes me go "hell yeah, worth it for that!", it's evolved into a total scam. bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p06lpbq7

disconcerting similarities to 3D printing conferences 👀

This printer has really gone downhill since yesterday 😩 (yesterday/ today, same file)

i think this New Matter 3D printer is broken already, down to a filament jam that's unreachable because this particular printer was designed (by @frogdesign@twitter.com ) as a seamless blackbox you're never supposed to unscrew and repair. 😒

Absolutely spot on 4mm, phew, the gcode print settings must be OK. Side story: my Colombian granddad gave me these calipers and encouraged me to study engineering. He was an industrialist and brought European machinery to Colombia. These calipers probably came with the machines

for a minute there I thought I had bricked it again 😅 did the classic *unplug/pug* to fix it

Bringing back a 3D printer from its start-up vapourware obsolescence death . So grateful specialist github communities exist for keeping things running and open source

Is this a US plug 🔌? It doesn’t fit my converter 🤨
I may chop it off and solder on the UK three-pin monstrosity

•Sponsored by @ReflowFilament@twitter.com• thanks for the recycled plastic filament , looking forward to developing some new work with this x

Last night I saw Philip Glass play and gosh, what a moving and unforgettable experience, just his presence made half the audience teary-eyed 😭. Tao of Glass was such a wonderful homage to Philip’s music and creative, dreamy ethos

Somewhere in Toronto, AR protest stickers!! Thanks @VectorFestival@twitter.com /MZ for the action ✖️

☕Good morning ☕
day 2 of ✨REMAKE WEBSITE ✨, so far I've tamed the css to agree on most mobile phones. Threejs is great, but best with gltf files, which you can now export from the new blender 2.8 beta. Its a lovely 3D file format, with textures and materials all-in-one.

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Im dreading opening this up on a smaller screen and finding everything in the wrong place 😅

also, I've decided to stop using a CMS web-hosting platform, and use GitHub+Netlify 🤪 means I get to add threejs on every page for showing 3D work
