3D Print with 0% Infill, But Fill It Later to Make the Print Solid
Mon, 14 Jan 2019 12:57:35 +0000

After looking around, I found some potential solutions. Reading this "Filling Hollow Plastic", I found that you can fill hollow objects with resin and expanding foam. Resin seems to provide a hard filling, while expanding foam provides a soft filling.

I found two possible resin products. First, the "Alumilite Amazing Casting Resin, 16-Ounce". This product cures extremely quick, within 10 minutes. But if you need a longer working time, try the second product, the "Environmental Technology 33016 16-Ounce Kit Casting' Craft Casting Epoxy, Clear". It has a curing time of 1 to 2 days, giving you plenty of time to work with. Working with resin requires mixing two chemicals in disposable cups and sticks.

There are quite a lot of expanding foam products out there. And you can easily pick up a can from your local home improvement store. An example is the "Touch 'n Foam DAP Max Fill 4001031212 MaxFill Maximum Expanding Sealant, 12Oz, Tan". But reading reviews seems to indicate that the foam spray gets everywhere. And if you just want to fill a small object, it's quite wasteful to use a whole can.

While looking at these products, I thought of a third possible product: "Liquid Nails LN-2000 9 oz. Fuze It All Surface Construction Adhesive, Gray". I used Liquid Nail before in home improvement projects. It squeezes out like a paste and hardens once cured. I think it can be used as a filler. There is now a hand squeezable version, which seems great for smaller projects, "LIQUID NAILS/PPG ARCH FIN LN-547 5 oz Liquid Nails Fuze".

Anyone has any other options?

Fortnite - Save the World - Content Not Ready
Fri, 04 Jan 2019 23:23:47 +0000

There was no The solution? I had to check all of the additional languages boxes in the "Fortnite Installation Options" in the prior dialog. Once I did that, Epic Launcher was finally able to start downloading the new update without telling me to close all instances of Fortnite. So far, it's done downloading and is installing now.

iDrive terminal block?
Wed, 02 Jan 2019 18:31:40 +0000

Hi,

I'm trying to find out what pins 1 and 3 on the iDrive terminal block do. They show a switch so wondering if that's for a hardwired wall plate/switch but I can't find any documentation on it or pins 4 and 5 (light?). The installation manual only mentions pins 1 and 2 for the photoelectric sensors.

I received a home automation garage door opener module for Christmas and it needs to connect to the hardwired switch terminals.

Thanks!

Scott

Lenovo Y50-70 Fan Replacement
Wed, 02 Jan 2019 03:56:39 +0000

There are 10 screws under the Y50-70 laptop that needs to be removed. A Philips precision screwdrive will do. There are 5 screws at the bottom, 2 screws at the top corners, two on the side, and 1 in the middle.

Who to Ban in "Nexus Blitz"?
Wed, 12 Dec 2018 08:08:28 +0000

Nexus Blitz is a special League of Legends game mode that uses a map that I would say is somewhat similar to the Twisted Treeline map. It features two push lanes and a jungle. The jungle is split between a bigger area at the top of the map and a smaller area between the two lanes. The game assigns three laners and two junglers; the latter are equipped with smite automatically.

Unlike the other League of Legends game modes in the past, where I can easily identify ban candidates, I really have not thought of any champions that is OP in this particular game mode.

So most of the time, I just ban Yasuo--not for any map or game mode reasons--because he is tough on the two squishy champions I like to play--Tristana and Veigar.

Can you think of any champions worthy of banning in Nexus Blitz? Tell us the champion and the reason why you'd ban it, using the comment boxes below.

idrive for TorqueMaster is Temperature Sensitive
Sun, 02 Dec 2018 20:32:33 +0000

I took Ken's lead about warming it up. I mounted a utility lamp below the drive so the heat would rise and keep the drive warm. Voila, what a difference. I added a small towel on the drive to reduce lost heat. This fix works so far down to minus 10 C were as it would quit before at plus 8 C. See my photo for the set up I am now using. The door works almost flawlessly, only a very rare stoppage part way up, rarely...
Thanks to Ken for the idea to warm the drive. I had been blaming the tightness of the door in cold weather. I seems the drive needs to be warmed to work. Thanks Ken... I have attached a photo below... now a happy guy (a wife is too)
Be sure to reply if you too have success.

Fortnite: Team Rumble Tips
Wed, 28 Nov 2018 01:53:14 +0000

This limited time mode is very similar to the Food Fight LTM and the Disco Domination LTM. It has unlimited respawn, you keeps your weapons when respawning, and you battle it out until a goal is reached.

It's also 20v20, so there plenty of loot. Because of the respawn, there is no need for bandages and med-packs. And shield potion, slurp juice, and chug jug are secondary to picking up weapons.

I, personally, prefers to load up on grenades and explosives to become a demolition expert. Then I carry one rifle of some kind, hopefully a scoped rifle. Then I just unload all the explosives on the enemy until I'm out. Then I switch to the rifle.

What are your tips?

Error Upgrading Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS
Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:37:55 +0000

I am having trouble upgrading Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in a virtual machine to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I'm using the automated upgrade process inside Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. After it starts, when it get to "Setting new software channels", it errors out as shown in the screen shot below.

It claims that "A problem occurred durig the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry." I'm on the network and has no network problems. I retried several times with the same result.

Anyone know what's causing this problem?

Fortnite: Food Fight Tips
Thu, 22 Nov 2018 23:30:17 +0000

Food Fight is like Disco Domination where you re-spawn over and over again in each game. Since you don't lose your weapon when you die, it's best to collect the best ones right at the beginning of the game before the wall comes down. Once you collected your guns, run for the headquarter and take out the enemies.
