Elegoo Mars Prints

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2020 by getbent57

Have gotten back to using my 3D printer an Elegoo Mars.  Months ago gave Tinkercad a try and came up with a simple coin design.  This is what I printed.  Well seven of them.  Once I the model how it need to be on the build plate it cloned it over six more times.  When I design it use the dimensions of a toonie.  Thinking it would keep the same size.  However after the print stop seen that they were much smaller.  So going to give it another try and up the size scale a bit.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Trailer

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on June 29, 2020 by getbent57

Crash_Bandicoot_4_Its_About_TimeThere has been rumors and a few leaks saying there will be a new Crash Bandicoot game.  They turned out to be true.  On June 22, 2020 they announced Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.  This is a great title.  A nice play on words.  Since there will be time related elements in the game.  All so it is about time there was a new Crash game.   As you can see from the trailer > here or below the game looks amazing and funny.  Watched an interview with one of the makers and he said there will be two modes.  An old school one where it plays like the old games.  Once you run out of lives you have to start over. The other one if you die it will take you back to the last check point.  Think this is a nice touch.  The best apart there is a release date, October 2, 2020.  I can’t see this one being delayed or pushed back.

Am not surprised by that, Cyberpunk 2077, it has been delayed again.  It was in January (2020) that they delayed it until September.  Last week they pushed it back to November 19, 2020.  However there is some good news to share.  On June 25 they put out Cyberpunk Night City Wire video. It showed off some new gameplay as well as an interview with two of the developers.  You can see that > here or below.

Motorcycle Trouble Another Update

It took a week and more phone calls but I have a new “new” back tier for my 2006 Yamaha XT225 (Yesterday June 25, 2020).  Two weeks ago at a new set put on.  Days later while returning from work the bike could not get up to speed and was super loud.  Turns out back tire was too big.  Causing it to rub again the suspension. Many phones call later they came and got my bike.  Saying the will order a new tire.  A week goes by.  Give them a call to see what going on.  They forgot about it.  First the guy said the tire wasn’t there and he would look into.  He called back said it was.   Then the guy gave me a speech about how there are down people in the shop.  Have been hearing that story every time I need to get something done.  Later that day he called back saying it was on and it how much it would cost.  I reminded him that last week you said it wouldn’t cost any thing.  Gave me another speech about how this tire costs a lot more money.  He wasn’t going to charge me labour and he had to change different departments money.  To makes the long story shorter got him down to $39.00.  I hate dealing with them.  Not going to buy anything from them again.

ZBrushCoreMini

ZBrushCoreMiniTrying to get back into using my Elegoo Mars 3D printer.  Have some thing planed for what I want to print next.  There are all so lots of cool stuff online to get.  However would like to try a make my own models.  Have messed around with Tinkercad.  It is an awesome web based free CAD program.  The thing with that is you can 3D sculpt.  Have looked into this a bit.  The two programs that come up the most are Blender and ZBrush.  Blender is free but hard to learn.   For ZBrush is user friendly but costs a lot money.  That being said there is now a stripped down free to use version called, ZBrushCoreMini.  This just came out a few days ago.  Going to give it a try.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2020 by getbent57

Finally heard back about the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine I ordered back in March (2020).  They said it will not be shipped since it will no longer be a Canadian supplier.  When I first looked at getting this I did check to see if they are or ship to Canada.  At that time they did.  Then they asked if I wanted a refund.  Well of course I do.  Not going to give you my money for free.  Need to keep a close eye on my Pay Pal to make sure they do.  Still every much would like to get on of these machines.  They only place in Canada is to get one now is Amazon.ca.  Which is fine but they want too much.  All more $100.00 than I paid the first time.  If they do go on sale at some point it jump at it.

[Update] Since typing this post have received a refund.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, talking about  IDW’s re-lanced the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a new comic book series. In 2013 discovered that IDW had re-lanced the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a new comic book. Had bought a bunch of the main trade paperbacks before learning about the micro-series books. Since I was all ready collecting the main books. So why not get theses ones as well. My plan is it read them and talk about them for the channel.  This week is is Micro-Series Volume 2.  You can see the video > here or below.
