Haven't been liking Fusion 360 as a design tool. Would love to see Solidworks release a cut-down toolset for 3D printers. Love that tool, but you can't really use it outside of academia or industry, it just costs too much.

Out of the free CAD software Fusion 360 is one of the best in my opinion (always open for new suggestions). I have tried quite a few free tools and they are far from intuitive. It can't be compared to Inventor, Solidworks, or Catia but however expensive you get what you pay for with those.

The learning curve can be quite steep for Fusion 360 but for everything enthusiasts would do like designing a distro plate, case mods Fusion delivers.

Have you tried using Blender for designs (3D printing with Blender)? I have barely scratched the surface with Blender but I think it is one of the must-know applications, like Photoshop for example. An extremely powerful tool.

Blender is a dream to use, takes a bit of getting used to but once you've mastered the basics of modeling it's so quick.





I also recommend BlenderGuru for tutorials, this one is great as it's for the new UI.

So I got lazy and didn't level my bed. I could see when it was printing the brim that there were some gaps in between the lines. Anyway, 65% in this happened.



I guess the lesson is always take your time. I leveled the bed and started again. This time the first layer was squishing fine, no gaps. One problem though, I was really low on black filament and had no more spools of it. I thought for sure I would run out before the print finished, but to my surprise I had some to spare!



That's the finished print with what was left on the spool.

Not sure whether to post here or in the Sale/Wanted section but I need something 3D printing and would like to ask any of you guys if you could? Naturally, I'll cover the material and postage costs as well as some extra for the trouble.

Right, I've been building a new system recently. It's retro, but not 8-Bit era retro, it's from the Windows 98 - XP era.

I got a bargain Motherboard, CPU, RAM, and GPU bundle using an AMD Athlon 2800+ on Socket A/462, but there was a slight issue; the CPU cooler sounded like a jet engine and decent Socket A coolers are near impossible to find. In the end, I thought to keep the original heatsink and design a new mount to add an 80mm fan on top, I originally trialled it with an old Arctic cooling fan I had lying around which worked, but was also loud. Naturally, if you want quality fans, what do you get? Noctua of course!











Big thank you to WYP for printing this for me since I can't get a 3D Printer ...yet.


Some thoughts on it, I measured the diameter of the mount as 80mm, neglecting that fan measurements are the overall measurements, not the actual fan size so that's a lesson learnt for future. Also, I think I've made it a little too high. I originally did this so there's not a huge amount of compression when the airflow is squeezed into the heatsink but I think I could shorten it without causing any issues.
