Live Stream! Testing out video capture from Oculus Rift while flying DCS World!

36:576 hours Agoi
Tonight I needed a break from 3D printers and wanted to see if I could do a decent video capture/live stream from my Oculus Rift while flying in DCS World. With the VR being amazing from my perspective in the Rift, I wanted to see how well that would translate into 2D for you, the viewer! I used Oculus Mirror and StreamLabs OBS to capture my Oculus Rift view to 1920 x 1080. I think the video came out a little too jittery...but this was a first try! ** Support the stream with a Donation! ** https://streamlabs.com/wherenerdyiscool ⭐ Support me and my Channel with a Donation! ⭐ https://www.paypal.me/wherenerdyiscool Want to save some money on your next FolgerTech purchase?

(Recorded Live Stream) Friday Night NERD CHAT with Paul – Let’s do that Titan Aero Upgrade!

2:18:571 week Agoi
(Recorded Live Stream) Tonight we chatted while I start work on replacing the stock hot end / extruder of the FolgerTech FT-i3 Mega and replace it with an E3D Titan Aero setup that also uses the TH3D EZABL! BUT...turns out my upgrade kits (and Titan Extruder kits) were missing the SPRING needed to complete the upgrade. I'm not a happy about the missing piece again...and ordered some. I should have just ordered the complete Titan Aero and not gone with the incomplete Upgrade Kits E3D sells. And we chatted about several other fun topics along the way!

(Recorded Live Stream!) Installing the E3D Titan Aero and EZABL to FT-i3 Mega 3D Printer

2:47:552 weeks Agoi
(Recorded Live Stream!) Join in as I start work on replacing the stock hot end / extruder of the FolgerTech FT-i3 Mega 3D printer and replace it with an E3D Titan Aero setup that also uses the TH3D EZABL! ....and it turned out, among my bags of E3Dv6 parts and pieces, I do not have the correct heater block and pinion gear! During the stream, I ordered those pieces from Filastruder. When those arrive, I'll kick off another Live Stream HOWEVER...we did get a few things done. The print head and wiring has been removed, the bed springs have been replaced with nylon spacers (since we will use an EZABL Bed leveling sensor) and I have organized the pile of parts so we're ready to go when the missing components arrive. AND...we had a great Saturday night conversation about all things 3D Printing!

(Recorded Live Stream) Friday Night NERD CHAT with Paul Did you miss it LIVE? Here's the replay! Tonight I chatted about... A new arrival from GEEETECH...the long promised LCD Display replacement! The LCD Display control knob has been faulty on my Geeetech A10 3D printer since it arrived. It took MANY turns on the knob to move one menu item on the display. Very frustrating! And more so that it took many, many attempts to get anyone at GEEETECH to take my issue seriously. Their "customer service" needs work! The also sent the wrong ribbon cable. What arrived is way too short, so I re-used the existing one. I need the swap out during the live stream and it went quite well! It has taken a lot of work on my side but my 2 month old Geeetech A10 is working the way IT SHOULD HAVE new, out of the box! And I chatted with whatever the audience wanted to talk about!

(Recorded Live Stream) CR-10S Hot End Replacement..installing Micro Swiss All Metal Hot End

3:6:263 months Agoi
My Creality CR-10S developed a terrible nozzle clog with some PETG. I figured this was the perfect time to do the hot end upgrade I have been wanting to do. I replaced the bowden tube with Capricorn XS tubing and installed the Micro Swiss All Metal Hot End upgrade. This upgrade keeps the original heater cartridge that came with the CR-10S The upgrade went well and required some re-calibration of the installed EZABL Auto Bed Leveling Probe as well. Two test prints and a lot of good conversations with fellow 3D printing enthusiasts! Scroll through the video and you can see me installing the Capricorn tubing, Micro Swiss Hot End and more!

Getting Back into FLYING!

17:214 months Agoi
Today we are taking a little detour from my usual content. I have been a licensed Private Pilot for 26 years and I love to fly! The problem has been, like many pilots, life got busy and we had to put flying on hold. Now I am coming back to it and would really love to work on gaining my instrument and commercial ratings. Maybe a career change, since there's a huge shortage of pilots? We'll see! In this video, I am taking a Familiarization Flight with my local flying club VP, Dan. All of my time has been spent in Cessnas and our club airplane is a 1969 Piper Cherokee (PA28). Now this isn't a flight review check-ride I'll eventually do with my flight instructor after some training time. This is just a short flight where he's getting me accustomed to the Piper and even letting me fly, take off and land. THIS IS NOT A TRAINING VIDEO! Now this was also my first time working with 3 GoPro's, an audio recorder and more! I hope you like the video and find the editing and video quality satisfactory! The mounts we had for the GoPros did not work out very well, since they were not made for airplanes! Please let me know what you think of this video in the comments section below! Meanwhile..I'm going to pinch my pennies so I can afford more flying time with the club airplane and my instructor! Like 3D Printing?

Replacing the Ultimaker 2+ TFM Coupler and Bowden Tube!

19:205 months Agoi
Today I am doing some minor maintenance on my Ultimaker 2+ 3D Printer. It's one of my favorite printers and I started to experience some filament grinding and under extrusion. While I suspect most of that was some water-logged PLA, I know the PTFE coupler that came with the printer should be replaced with the new TFM style. I also had all kinds of debris stuck in the Bowden tube, so that had to go too! I run through how to disassemble and install the TFM coupler, get everything back together and do some test prints!

Replacing R2-D2’s Center Foot Caster Wheels

19:237 months Agoi
Hello friends! Today I am working on my Star Wars R2-D2 replica some more! R2-D2 is a full-size, all aluminum droid and with all that weight comes the need to do maintenance on the center foot wheels. The bearings inside the casters get plugged up with a lot of debris, plus carrying so much weigh of the droid! I have had troubles with the wheels not moving smoothly for a little while and upon peeking in there...the bearings are completely gunked up and grinding away! In this video I show you my two-caster wheel setup, how I use rollerblade tires instead of the stock caster wheel and change them out! I get everything all mounted up and do a bit of a test drive to see how they sound and if the height alignment is improved any!

Repairing R2-D2’s dome drive!

As I mentioned in my previous video, at the Down East Fantasy Con, R2-D2's head stop rotating. It made noise but wouldn't move! Today, I took the head assembly apart to see what failed.

Today, I am going through the steps to get the old motor and mount structure out, replace the motor, do the wiring and make sure R2-D2's dome can rotate again!

Down East Fantasy Con 2018

15:367 months Agoi
I'm back! Last weekend I was at the Down East Fantasy Con, held at the Ramada Inn in Ellsworth, Maine. I had my full-size aluminum R2-D2 replica droid with me and I had a steady stream of videos from my channel playing on the monitor! This is a brand new Con my friend put together and it was aimed at being more Fantasy based and Family Friendly, with a lot of special events for kids. Overall it was a good time, despite the location lacking air conditioning on a rather hot hot day! But I think they learned a lot from this first effort and when they plan for next year's event, it will be even better! We met a lot of great people and I did a couple of interviews with others that were there. Here's more information on the people I interviewed if you wish to learn more!

Still fine tuning the print settings! ZYLTech PLA and PETG filaments. Amazing low price, I have to try it out! MattForge, low gloss, matte PLA filament....really interesting stuff!

Making a Quick Mission in DCS World

13:308 months Agoi
This time around I am showing you how I use the DCS Mission Editor to create a quick mission for custom missions! Now fair warning...I am only about two weeks into playing DCS World and everything I have learned has been from a bunch of really great tutorials I found on YouTube and on the web. In this one, I am simply creating two sides, adding A-10 Warthogs and placing some enemy cargo ships and tanks for target practice! I also threw in a KC-135 refueler in there, in case I wanted to practice that as well! If you are a flight simmer who hasn't flown in a long time, I am telling you, go get DCS World and invest in a new flight stick! I am hooked and really enjoying this game! It's a really great flight simulator and the graphics are stunning! Like 3D Printing? Check out my web forums! http://www.3dprintingforum.us/ ?

Learning to fight with the DCS World A-10 Warthog!

2:23:358 months Agoi
Here we go again, learning to fly and fight! If you have DCS...join in! (A-10 Ground Attack Practice) If not...grab a seat, pop open a beverage and watch us become pixel marks on the high definition hillsides! Seriously... you'll see I managed to score several Maverick and other kills in the A-10A. While this is the simplified version of the A-10, It's a nice start to get the hang of the various sights. The fun will be applying what I've learned into the more complex DCS World A-10C soon! I opted to just stick with the DCS World A-10A tonight.

Recorded Live Stream! Working on the Tevo Tornado!

31:128 months Agoi
Evening friends! I'm doing some work to the Tevo Tornado this evening and thought I would kick on the Live Chat to friends who wish to chat! I just adjusted the Y stepper motor driver up from 0.90 to 1.01 volts. I hope this solves the Y axis shift I got in a print recently! I also installed a Y stepper motor bracket and secured the heated bed wiring to the bed spring using a zip-tie. While this tall test print is underway, I talk about some of the things I like and dislike about the Tevo and some upgrades I plan to do! Like 3D Printing?

Do you need to cool your Octoprint Raspberry Pi 3?

11:459 months Agoi
Have you wondered if your Octoprint server, powered by the amazing Raspberry Pi 3, needs cooling? Are heat sinks enough? Are they needed? What about heat sinks and a fan? Have you seen cases on Thingiverse that have fan mounts and wonder if that is really needed? I wondered all of these things! In this video I am going to measure the CPU load and temperature while using my Raspberry Pi 3 powered Octprint Server! I show the temps and load on without anything on it, with a heat sink and then with a heat sink and 40mm CPU fan! You'll be surprised at some of the things I find along the way! The CPU Cooling I show here is very affordable! Like 3D Printing? Check out my web forums! http://www.3dprintingforum.us/ ? Do you like my videos and wish to help support what I do on Patreon?

My Review of Polyalchemy Elixir PLA Filament!

7:299 months Agoi
Today I am giving my review on a very unique PLA blend, Polyalchemy Elixir PLA. I bought a spool for my Ultimaker 2+ 3D Printer, which uses 2.85 mm filament and a 1.75 mm spool for my other printers. It takes a little experimentation to dial in the right settings for this filament but once you do so, the results are simply amazing! Layer lines seem to vanish and the finish is smooth and shiny! I have been really impressed with this PLA and in the video, I show off some of the prints I have done and some tips on how to print with this filament! I bought mine at PrintedSolid.com !

Advanced Tuning: ESTEPS calibration and PID Control for your Tevo Tornado 3D Printer

19:3710 months Agoi
Today I am doing some advanced calibration on the Tevo Tornado 3d printer. First we are going to run the autotune on the PID control in the Marlin firmware. This will help the printer stablize and determine the optimum settings to heat and cool your hotend, so it can better maintain the temperature you've given it! You'll see that PID Tuning isn't that hard! After that, I am measuring the 20 mm test block to verify the X, Y and Z axis are as close to 20 mm as possible. In this video, I need to calculate the esteps to fix my z axis! It's a little bit of math and quite easy to do! ? Do you like my videos and wish to help support what I do on Patreon?

Installing R2-D2’s Charge Bay Electronics!

7:121 year Agoi
Recently we went over the wiring, now it's time to get that Charge Bay Indicator installed! It's a little tricky getting the Arduino UNO mounted into the frame! You want to be able to access it if you need to, so plastic Velcro is a great choice. You also need to make sure the wiring is secure and won't pop off the UNO! In this video I show you how I secure the contacts to the UNO, make sure the 3 indicator LEDs are glued in, mount the UNO into the frame and power it up!

Upgrading an Old HP xw8400 Workstation from 2006….is it worth it?

16:331 year Agoi
We all have an old PC kicking around and sometimes you wonder if it's worth upgrading or not! I have an HP xw8400 Workstation, which was a top of the line machine back in the day...well, 2006 to be exact! I wanted to see how this dual Xeon processor workstation would perform when upgraded with a ton of RAM and impressive nvidia Quadro 5000 video card. (Again, incredibly expensive and powerful equipment 11 years ago!) How's something like that perform under a modern operating system like Windows 10 Home? Or upgrading to Windows 10 Professional?

Coffee Chat...a casual chat with you guys! Today I'm discussing my observations and frustration with trying to buy the TEVO Tornado.

Printing with NinjaTek Cheetah!

8:562 years Agoi
I needed to use some flexible filament to print some small wheels for the BB-8 Project. I came across Ninjatek Cheetah, which is a bit harder than NinjaFlex but more friendly to work with. It came out really good! Here's some of the settings I used in Cura & my Ultimaker 2+ to successfully print these small tires... CURA Layer Height - 0.1mm Print Speed - 10mm/s Travel Speed - 120mm/s Combing - All Print Cooling - 50%, layer 1 Retraction - Disabled Ultimaker 2+: Nozzle Temp - 235ºC Buildplate Temp - 45ºC Material Diameter - 2.9mm Material Flow - 103% You can buy NinjaTek Sample Splash Spools at 3DPrintNY.com if you don't need a large spool of material!

FolgerTech FT-5 Build Update (July 1, 2017)

Time for a build update on my FolgerTech FT-5 kit, as of July 1, 2017! It's been slow work since the instructions are quite lacking in my opinion! However as you can see in this video, I have managed to get to the wiring stage of the build! The Titan Aero is installed onto the 713Maker Ultra Lightweight Extruder Mount, the 713Maker gantry is in and much more! (Hopefully the video is better than previous ones, despite the movement!)

Where to go with 3D Printing Questions?

3:162 years Agoi
So if you are big into 3D printing, sometimes you need to search for answers to your technical questions! Where do you go for those? Sure, Google helps, as does the manufacturer websites. But how about a Web Forum that's all about 3D printing? There's many out there but let me introduce you to mine! 3DPrintingForum.us is a site I started just over a year ago. It started as an idea among Ultimaker owners and has grown to talk about other printers, software, filament and more! Check it out!

Reflecting on Bangor Comic & Toy Con 2017!

6:222 years Agoi
I had my own booth at the Bangor Comic & Toy Con this year, displaying two Ultimaker 3 and two Ultimaker 2+ Extended 3D printers! We also had R2-D2, my BB-8 dome and numerous 3D prints on display! (Pardon the scratchy microphone at the beginning of the video. Looks like that highly rated and inexpensive lavalier microphone setup isn't all it could be!) With the Ultimaker printers on display, I set out to show the local community what these 3D printers can do! The technology continues to improve and people of all ages were extremely impressed to see them at work. It was really quite a bit of fun to educate the public on how they work, what they can do and the usefulness they have. Seeing the BB-8 pieces and numerous dual-extrusion parts really impressed people. Please Subscribe and follow us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/WhereNerdyIsCool/

Quick and dirty time lapse video with the Ultimaker 3

Here's a quick and dirty time lapse with the Ultimaker 3 printing the "Ultimaker Drill". I used low resolution settings (0.20 layer height) to print this in 27 hours. It came out GREAT and imagine it would look even more amazing using the "FAST" (0.15 mm) or "Quality" (0.10 mm) layer height settings!
