Re: Custom Rostock MAX For sale!

You didn't mention that it was Tron-inspired. Pretty cool. Would be interesting to put blue led lights on the head and shoot a video.

Universal Construction Kit available for download

I have a strong interest in harvesting parts from toys so this had great appeal to me. I'm hoping they open-source the original designs versus the .STLs soon. "The Free Universal Construction Kit offers adapters between Lego, Duplo, Fischertechnik, Gears! Gears! Gears!, K’Nex, Krinkles (Bristle...

Re: PLA Help , lost

(Not a) Stupid Question: What do you wire the fan to? I see so many references to fans, what are you wiring it to?

Smart Question: If someone answers the above listed question, where is the best place to put this instruction? A category called Supplemental Docs?

(Either that or he had a quick beer break and the socket was just out of view.) My wife (in Quality at a major aircraft engine manufacturer) asked whe...
