Ive been digitaly poached!

I was reading a new online reprap book Building Your Own 3D Printer when I noticed one of the images looked really really familiar (Second picture in the frame section, with white plastic. Label Image 3 )

Its one of my pictures form this blog!!  From back when I first assembled my Prusa

I'm not sure how I feel about this...  

It would have been nice to at least be asked if they could use it, i would have said yes. But at the same time im flattered that they are using it...

The image is cited with its source location pointing back to my blog...

Going to have to think about this one...

Lots of Sanguinololu 1.3a boards

I got an interesting package in the mail today. From the packaging I was wondering if its was drugs! (as  TV would have me believe that this is how packages of drugs looks like)




But no, it was 100 Sanguinololu 1.3a boards!

The boards came in 4 bundles of 25 boards, in two packages (which looks like it is the inside of a duvet) The 4 bundles are heat shrunk packaging, very tough plastics with bubble wrap as one side.
Very weird.. but its only packaging  


This is the front of the board


And this is the back.

The boards look brilliant.

Now I need to sell them and recover my costs.

Expect to find these on various web site for sale soon, as soon as I work out shipping costs etc...

Edit: Now available @ http://www.emakershop.com and http://www.trademe.co.nz

Silver PLA

I am currently playing with "Silver" PLA, its really more of a pencil lead colour.


It prints really nicely



It doesn't look this blue in real life, which is a pity!
