This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Up early, wound new heater element while J. slept and the
babes gambolled. J. iced cakes variously, and then off to the NCC
Monday Fun event on the studlands estate (a Bank Holiday
Met lots of interesting new people, lots of cakes, fine
hot dogs, bouncy castle & so on. Simon did a stirling job
refereeing a vast contingent of boys playing football.
Back - testing the new nozzle at last; discovered that
I had inadvertently wedged the internal bearing - which might
explain some of the lack of motor-driven extrusion. Cut out the
ply a little more; fitted, heated, extruded ! nice - a beautiful
stream of 0.5mm diameter plastic - wonderful. It seems the
interface between the hot 3.5mm hole, and the insulating 3.5mm
hole is absolutely critical to the process - something I was
perhaps missing before.
Tried to time the amount of plastic extruded per second,
and get it to stick to the table. Tried extruding onto ply-wood,
then nylon chopping block: no joy - seemingly kapton-tape on ply
is reasonable. Managed to print a few layers of a very awful 40mm
cube before the nozzle started to drag it around the place - some
accurate calibration required, clearly.
