Cheer on our compatriots in the AT-AT corp as they take on the rebellion scum!

AT_AT Imperial Walker by ebross

This design is an AT_AT Imperial Walker. It was printed at a total length of 2ft long and 2ft tall. It took about 160 hrs to print. The original model was taken from the internet. I optimized it to be 3d printed. I also, redesigned the neck and made the legs, feet and neck articulated.

Raspberry Pi on Corporate WiFI

Investigating how to get my OctoPi on to the corporate WiFi so I can remotely control the TAZ 6.

Printing a priming line

I’ve done this before with my previous printers.  Seems to work well with the TAZ 6 as well.  Will always get some extraneous extrusion, no matter what you do.  Minimizing it is worthwhile.

Ditched my skirt for this Prusa i3 Mk2 style wipe feature I made for the TAZ 6 –

Not sure if anyone else runs into this but when I print skirts there is a decent chance they get pulled into the print. After I saw how the Prusa i3 Mk2 primed its nozzle by printing a line at the front of the bed where the printer never usually prints I got jealous.


Linux OS and Application Installation Guides

One of my friends turned me on to this site.  LOTS of information on Linux distributions, applications, etc. and how to install, configure, and troubleshoot.  Nice, easy-to-use interface.
