Yes it has been a while

 So I printed up this funnel filter. It is for filtering things like cooking oil. It is  funnel within a funnel and has holes in the inner portion so that what you are filtering will not just be filtered at the bottom but the sides also..

Here is the link from thingiverse.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished print

And here is the video that octoprint captured during the print. I am not sure how long it took as it ran over night and was done when I came home from work.

Thanks for looking!

Rubber Band Smart Phone Holder

 I found this on thingiverse Rubber Band Smart Phone Holder. It is Really a tripod for your phone. It is a simple print. Of course I did have to update my build plate as it was having a hard time sticking. That has always been fixed by replacing the magnetic build plate surface. As they do get worn out over time.

Rather then crowd the print I did it in 3 separate prints. The three legs in one print. The phone holder in another and the top of the legs as a third. I used M4*12 Screws and M4 nuts to hold it together. I was a little nervous about the width of the tripod leg holder but the screws pull it all in and they are tight enough not to move but not so tight that I can't change the position.

Thanks for looking!
