RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
Did the Tower transplant tonight. Took about 3 hours, I had to stop and clean a lot of parts. Up and running though. My CPU is running about 10F hotter than before, I hope I used enough thermal paste (about a pea drop).

       

Still waiting in on the shipment, meantime, tomorrow's assignment, detail clean the old case Smile

RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
Gee, that is exactly what I should do...transfer the components of this machine to a different case that I have running WinXP right now. Thought about it before, but I just didn't want to do it, so much extra work and I'm not sure this OS and system board will make the trip so to speak. The inside of your case is so much cleaner looking than mine, I seem to have power cables running in all directions and getting in the way of each other no matter how I tie them up. Congrats on the transfer, I bet you are chomping at the bit to get the new parts installed and back online.

RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
   

Got the parts on Tuesday - built it on Tuesday. Here it is Thursday, took about 2 days to get things the way I want them. I must say, love it. My other PC was still fast, but a difference can be told/seen with this one.

I didn't clean up the cable management as of yet, still just want it running and here are some pics of a sorry-a$$ build Smile

Keep in mind also that this is a semi-modular PSU, which makes it worse on my end for cable management.
   
   
   
   

I did get my 3d printer today - went ahead and bought --> Ender 3 Pro

   
2 hours of putting it together, but haven't fired it up yet.
   

Anyway, Christmas came a little early. Loving the PC, I have my old one next to me and I compared some stats and one of the out of the blue stats was, the new one only consumes about 1/2 of the wattage as my AMD one. Not sure what that is about, but since I run my PC alot, it is sure to save on electricity. I haven't benchmarked it yet. Just going off the wattage thing it is plugged into to.

Anyway, hopefully, I will be 3d printing soon and will share some insights.

IMpressive my friend! I am sooOoooo envious, but happy for you. Thanks for the picures (I see you have your own shipping inspector). I have decided to postpone my build for a while in order to save some funds for it, but will probably update my OS from Win7 to Win10 soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

3d printing




I do have to say, it is a really steep learning curve for this. You can print to your heart is full from sites like Thingiverse and others.

Developing is a whole other thing I didn't anticipate. The settings alone within a 'slicer' software are beyond me. However, it is extremely a neat thing to have. I have a raspberry Pi 3 now, because of this, who would have known what that was before I started researching 3d printers. Smile

Either way, the new PC is handling everything I throw at it with this 3d printer and with my GPU, I haven't really got to test that out yet. Compared to my Old PC (still functional and sitting in a corner) this one has a very noticeable speed component. I don't have benchmarks or anything, I just know from the last years, this one is a lot faster. Once I get this 3d printing bug out of my system, I will be putting the core to the test with some app development and java programming, which the old one was sluggish being AMD based. (Java wasn't the problem, it was Intel vs AMD rights of passage - as far as I know).

With all said and done, trying to figure this raspberry Pi thing and get it working with the printer. Using a guide that is less than 3 months old, but seems to be out dated already. Ughh. Danny Glover said it best, but still I am trying Smile.

RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
Still working on the camera angles and such, but was able to capture two 3D prints, however, they are going faster than I want.

Using a raspberry Pi and a PS3 Camera on a mount (that was 3d printed), I have these videos. I am trying to use Octo on my Pi, but I get a lot of errors - so in the meantime, these were used with a 1 minute timer to make, still pretty neat IMO. Just an update, loving the new machine.

RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
Ha, just having fun, finally got it to do the picture with the extruder in the back right, albeit, the camera isn't really centered. This was a 5.5 hour print and it took a pic ever .2mm of layers. Smile

RE: 3d Printing and Computer Build
Remarkable! I watched it and this technology is amazing! Being of an older generation it seems nearly all of the technology/digital age is truly fantastic to me. How in the world did humans ever figure out how to do stuff like this! I remember standing behind a group of students while at college watching a large TV as Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon, WOW! This new machine you have is not quite the same but it deserves a wow too. Cool
