          • My improvised "heated" chamber for my 3d printer. It achieves to maintain 38°C (room temperature 20°C) just from the heat bed that is at 100°C. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/873620

            • @adiwan Haha, oh wow, how delightfully nicely improvised. I can smell the masking/painters tape from here.

              You know I just realized while popping the bubble wrap of my latest package from China ( its a pointery lasery thingie ), the bubble wrap is almost universally made from Poly ( PP ) and no way that stuff would melt at those temperatures. At least the chamber, in no way am I going to risk saying anything about the heat bed in conjunction with cheap Chinese plastics.

            • @drinkingpony I'm glad you like my s(t)ick(y)-nasty improvisation skills.

              Polypropylene is extremely durable and I'd like to print with it one day, however it is extremely finicky. Once it needs to be printed at 260°C (I cannot do this with my printer because I'd gas out toxins from the PTFE tube), you need other polypropylene (sticky tape) to make it stick to the heat bed otherwise it slips off the bed, it sucks out the moisture like nothing from the air and thus creating nasty bubbles while printing, and it warps worse than ABS. But right now I'm already annoyed enough by ABS so it'll take me a whole new printer to even think to print with it (also PP is relatively expensive).

              • There are 3 HUGE things in life which I do not think should be trifled with, these are in order: sentient species, alcohol, matters explained by science rather than magic.

                Now what happened was that a friend of a friend started spewing nonsense about railguns and how it would not have recoil because all that the electomagnetic force is doing is pulling. Then I am sorry, I can not let that one go. Either admit you are wrong or attempt to bribe me with the correct liquid.

                It would take quite a few glasses full for me to forget about the third law of Newton.

                  • I've spent half the day debugging my 3D printer problems. It turned out that a blob of plastic was in the PTFE bowden tube which jammed the whole printer. I had to disassemble the feeding path, cut off the piece where the blob was, exchange the nozzle, scrape plastic off from the heat zone (I had to do it twice), and put everything together. I save money for a direct-drive 3D printer with an all-metal hotend and hopefully my problems will be decreased.

                    • @drinkingpony I don't want to additionally heat the chamber besides the heat plate. In the chamber will be the whole printer with all the electronics and the power supply. I don't intend to separate them and wire them to the outside. I'm too lazy for that. I think I only need just a room with a slightly higher ambient and constant ambient temperature. The temperature sensor and heat plate will get me that once it's closed sufficiently.
                      I know that the IKEA Lack tables aren't filled with sawdust. I meant that these tables are cheaply made. I used one as a throw-away work table for sawing my flooring. BTW: My IKEA Lack tables were produced in Poland.

                    • @adiwan Outside ? what ? No, I was saying you could make a pretty neat insulated square cube with some nice bricks or slabs of prefab rock ( Terrassenfliessen oder Balkonfliesen ). Ofcourse I do not know how big your printer is, or your aversion to taking those things inside, or even your ability to go to a junkyard and 'browse'.

                      Also sadly I have no data on Poland's IKEA fire-proofing of their furniture. Speaking of which, one of my online friends gave me this thing http://rainbowdash.net/url/873581 , You probably want to watch that for fun and giggles, at least for the first 90 seconds.
