Okay, so, update time.
It's been an enormous amount of work, and not the greatest results. I've got 9 usable shield pieces, and one visor. I've got 50 yards of elastic in the mailbox, which I can't get near because my neighbors are treating this as one giant party time, and a couple hundred plastic paper holders that are about ready to come out of quarentine which I intend to make into the actual shield part.
As for the printer, after an incredible amount of frustration, I finally have a replacement motherboard which will hopefully put an end to this, at least according to Monoprice's tech support. With current events, I have no idea when it
Hey, I know I'm like NEVER on here, but you never know who'll see this.
First of all, I hope you're well and safe. The situation in the world is crazy, and I wish everyone the best and that you can weather this with as little impact on yourself as possible.
The reason I'm posting this is, I've begun 3D printing face shields that I hope to provide to hospitals and other in-need people. I have limited resources at the moment, but I'll be printing as many of these as I can, and they're a simple design. You print the base portion, then use any clear plastic sheet as the shield, and an elastic band, cloth, or even rubber bands, as the headband t
So I've actually managed to keep at least somewhat active here, even if my inbox still hates me. Well, I suppose I might ass well actually explain what's going on with the flood of characters. This will cover most of them, there's plenty of other stuff going on as well, but by far the majority of what's been upload have been involved in one primary project:
I'M WRITING A NOVEL!
These characters will be featured mostly in a large medieval fantasy story that I'm assembling, hopefully for actual publishing. There's side stuff as well, background, characters, mini-stories. It's actually gotten to the point where I've decided to write my own com
Just....crap at staying active, and that's even when I have a number of things I could actually upload...yeah I'm gonna get on that.
I'll admit, I'm mostly writing this 'cause step 1 to trying to be more regularly active means getting that old journal off my front page. That copyright stuff is still VERY important, but not really why people show up here.
Really, I'm far more active on youtube, heck even streaming on my beam.pro/nikolai60 , though that needs more life to.
Actually, speaking of streaming, there's a couple things going on.
I'll start with the second.
I'm gonna be streaming Divinity: Dragon Commander soon, not set date but i
NOT A PRANK I'd hope people would know by now I really REALLY hate april fools day.
LESS THAN A DAY TO ACT. I get the timing, and hate it, but this is important, THIS IS NOT A PRANK.
This is legit and SERIOUSLY IMPORTANT. Spread the word and send in the form, this is BADLY needed.
So yeah, trying to make a return. I seem to keep coming back only when cash is tighter than normal, so, yeah...
First the update:
Things have been busy, VERY busy, lately. Last semester of college, FINALLY, after way too many issues, including the fall semester involving an asshole with a bloated ego, and unfortunately tenure, doing his level best to fail me out of racism, and escaping punishment, unless you count his attempt to fail me being foiled a 'punishment'. I'm still waiting for retaliation.
The good news, Zoomin.TV didn't can me over the delays the CPU dying caused in uploads, and have actually done a LOT to make trying to make yo
CPU dying, life hates me, wdf do I keep returning?

I'm well aware there's people worse off than me, and the first thing I'm gonna do is post some links to them up top since they need help more than I do, so either check them out or at least spread the word please:
