Hi Ian, thanks for sharing your presentation! I think I also saw some tweets about it. How have you been doing? Was it a good event?

Hope everyone has had a good weekend! Any good stories?

Holiday photos are welcome, but please be considerate about us poor souls who are still left in our office spaces.. don't make us cry

Hi Sander.

Im good thank you.

Working away making 3d printed medical products

Its great making products that directly help people.

We also are big fans of using our ultimaker 3 in our workshop for testing new designs and parts. Maybe it could be a cool case study for you guys at ultimaker ?

Hope your also well.

Best wishes.

Ian

Oh boy, a flooded apartment. Hopefully it didn't ruin any furniture that you were planning on moving in a month from now? Can you sort everything out with insurance?

Within a different context, an indoor pool with that heat sounds like a plus

Ian, sounds good! Has it been a difficult change from architecture or not that much?

And possibly yes! Can you be a little bit more specific about what it is you do exactly? A colleague could reach out to you.

Carpets, towels (that magically fell into the mess) and 1 chair are goners.

Luckily the bathroom and kitchen are lower than the living room so most of the water stayed contain. We are trying not to have insurance involved because it would kill my premium (and the deposits are rather large here). Waiting on maintenance staff to come check everything out and hopefully fix the problem. Me banging on it for 4+ hours did not fix the issue (in all seriousness the plumbing is beyond shady, codes must have been very different in the 60's haha...).

Luckily my home Ultimaker 3 (yes i have one in my home too haha) is situated in a closet away from everything and sits on a 1 feet stool to prop it up). It's 100% fine

Pro-Tip: When you have a clog... Don't listen to the 'pros' at your hardware store and do not use declogged gel. Damn thing ended up going back up and spewing a gel-like 'acid' everywhere. Arms/feet are still itchy next day over.

Who said you could only learn about 3D printing here Something new to learn every day!

Sounds like a little set back then. We also have insurances where you have to start paying more when you have reported some damage, after you pay your fee every X, and first also have to pay like the deductable excess yourself (if that is the correct translation). I just try not to think about it too much cause it makes you wonder why you have insurance in the first place. (I guess, if you ever have any big expenses, you're probably happy you have it though)

Good to hear your Ultimaker 3 survived! Now you can still make a new chair

We tend to only have those for cars. My house insurance is <50 bucks a month and it covers a whole range of weird ass damages.

As for the unclogging gel; Depends what your drain is made of. The active component is NaOH, which you can wash off. It takes a bit of time before it starts eating up your skin (fun fact of the day, they used to make soap with this stuff)

Well, at least you won't be able to say it didn't get the dirt off

Forgot to update but maintenance came yesterday. Took them over an hour to unclog the bathroom sink + kitchen sink. Apparently the 'shredder' (no idea what its called, the kitchen sink appliance that shreds left over) ended up breaking, jamming and basically clogging everything. They replaced that too lol

Can't wait to move...

An original birthday present, a mold made of the Ultimaker icon and filled with chocolate! Very delicious

That looks great! ... But my birthday was in June!

How did you get the chocolate out of the molds again? Did you make a flexible mold?

Hi Sander.

Im setting up a team of really talented people to create the best medical products suited for 3d printing technology.

To start with we have created really really cool foot, hand and head orthesen using 3d scan and model systems. Delivering the end product in an array of different materials and using an array of 3d print processes.

We already have our products in the field and are expanding and making our designs and systems even better for the end user (patient)

Its a fantastic growing market to be involved in

And its also great to see a real use of 3d print technology to help people in their every day lives.

If your guys want to talk with me more about this: this is my email: i.spring@streifeneder.de

Thanks and have a lovely day.

Ian

I went to see the total solar eclipse last month and my daughter took footage from 4 different gopros and stitched and edited into a really nice video - more about the people than the eclipse - I think she did an excellent job (she has created about 70 videos over the last 3 years so she is getting pretty good - she has 2 other channels).  It's a very intense event.  Both my daughters cried.  It's not what one expects.  This is my third total eclipse.  We went with 130 other people from the Boston astronomy club (atmob).  Anyway eclipse part starts at 3 minutes in - I'm the guy in the yellow shirt.

Skip to 3 minutes!

After the eclipse is over and she starts narrating again, there are sped up videos showing the shadow pass over the clouds. In the first 2 sped up clips it approaches and then 2 clips of the sun coming back. Always it moves right to left. I you watch them a few times it gets very obvious. Stare only at the clouds. The ones in the left of the frame of the first clip are best and all across right to left of the south viewing clips.

If you listen with the sound cranked you can hear some kind of insect making "night time noises".

Hey mate!

Sorry for the delay, was sooo overloaded with all kinds of crap.

But, among the rest, I also do something similar to what you are doing:

Phoenix II 133 1

We joined the e-nable movement and also print hands as giveaway for the kids and adults who need them.

I'm very excited, as it is my first hand ever made. Hope, the kid who asked for Spiderman colors will love it.

Other than that, I will visit Berlin in November, to catch a bit of Christmas markets and to rest a bit, as the kids, you know, can be really annoying. :-)

Happy printing!
