My goal is to be more engaged at work and stay out of the top ten posters club :)

Or to just make things instead.

Is there a link to view such a thing? I poked around but couldn't find it. I'd be curious :)

I think you're up there as far as average posts/day goes....270 posts in less than 2 months.

My goals for 2015...broaden my 3D printing horizons with dual extrusion, more exotic materials, and maybe even pick up and build of these new fangled DIY resin printers.

Oh yeah...and finish building my damn RX-7.

If you haven't checked out Grab Cad yet, there are several models of wankel / rotary engines. That would further your delay on your RX7 build.

I'm on grabcad all the time but never thought to look up something like that. Definitely going to delay my build since I'm going to start printing them today. Thanks! :)

Printer related wishes:

Finish my build chamber
Install trihotend
Build extruder motor cooler
Build electronics cooler
Finish all my projects that I have been putting on hold waiting for the printer.

All related to RM2:
Intel Edison as brain
Extruders steppers drivers on top plate
Water cooling of extruders steppers
4 extruders
Webcam, leds
Longer fiber rods
Heating chamber made with Penofol (russian brand, don't know how it would be in English)

There are more plans, but I think rouble crisis wouldn't let me do more than that.
3D printing is magic!

Sorry my engrish :-/ you could PM me in Russian.

Goals for 2015, huh?

  • Learn more about 3D printing
  • Get a job
  • Become a source for information, and not a source for more questions
  • Have an income
  • Play around with other materials, both common and exotic
  • Stop draining my retirement
  • To learn enough to push my and my machines limits
  • Is anyone hiring?

Mine is to make a strong attempt to venture out into the so called "real world" more often. If it in fact even exists it may in fact be fictional....possibly...maybe, I'm not totally sure to be honest. Perhaps I should just print one for myself instead. Ya, that's it!

I may also print up a new girlfriend.

Sometimes I think these forums have entirely to little va***a in them, lol.
