As I sit here waiting for my alarm to go off. Unable to sleep. I watch videos of #3Dprinters. I've been intrigued by the deltesian concept ever since I first found it. I'm not a fan if "bedslingers" and couldn't really see the advantage of it. But today I see it. No leadscrew for the Z. Moving the bed for the Y sucks but not having a leadscrew is good. And getting rid of that third delta arm massively simplifies the math.
It's #screenshotsunday, folks. How 'bout some screenshots.
Words to heed.

Hey, how have you been?
PETG is some stringy shit. I'm playing with retraction settings, trying to dial it in. Afraid to do much more, fearing a clog. Decisions. #3Dprinting
I made this brooder box temperature controller about 20 years ago. It uses an Olson E5CS PID controller to run painter lights with evil incandescent bulbs to heat the box. The alarm output runs the second lamp should the temp wander more than 5 degrees below the setpoint. It's seen some use, abuse and quite a few chicks grow up overvthe years.
