Please oh please, please stop using the [expletive deleted] pictures. (…) I have some sort of condition that totally prevents me from reading text when the graphics are just flying past. BLINK BLINK BLINK!!! HEY YOU! STOP READING AND LOOK OVER HERE!!! NO, NOT THERE, HERE!!!
It adds nothing and makes it incredibly difficult to get real information out of the site. In the 90’s, it was white text with black background; now it’s every possible effort to induce seizures in your audience.
What is wrong with just putting the pics IN-LINE???

Nice job! Being recently interested in 3D printers, I found your enclosure quite interesting.
I’m sitting at home, waiting for the big brown truck to deliver my 3D printer today. At $250, I couldn’t say no. If anyone cares, it’s the Neva by Dagoma. Another engineer showed my hers and the parts it made were pretty nice. No heated bed and only PLA pretty much.

Good job - it looks well integrated rather than simply a bunch of leds stuck on some cloth. Safety and style well mixed!

Honest question: is it impossible to setup your web pages such that no data is downloaded for videos until the user clicks on something? Cause it seems that would solve many problems relating to slow browsing experiences. And people like me would not have to resort to using mozilla addons like flash-blocker and so on…
I usually browse with java-script turned off as well for similar reasons.

Great work, nice build info and so on but PLEASE don’t use whatever is that makes pics jump up and down my screen. It makes the article very difficult to read. And adds NOTHING.

Nice video. Er, no, not nice. Super!
Can you tell us who did the music? It was appropriate and nice also. It was so fantastic that I won’t even mention the old joke about “New Age - Rhymes with Sewage” ok? Oh, I’m sorry, it just slipped out.
Totally seriously, great job, Feldi!

Having a close friend who is into ceramics and having an interest myself in 3D printers, I wondered how the thing could do ceramic printing. A quick view of the device showed how: the usual 3D mover with an extruder for the clay.
As it turns out, the extruder method is well known to ceramic artists. My wife had the fortune to study under Bill Shinn, a master of the technique. A search of his work will inspire further new avenues of experimentation. Here are some of his efforts: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=bill+shinn+ceramic+sculpture&t=hq&atb=v67-5b_&iax=1&ia=images
He never, to my knowledge, got into 3D printer work but his techniques combined with what is possible in this area opens up an immense opportunity for creative expression. Thank you, Feldi, for the introduction to this.
Keep having fun!
