Hey Everyone!

Posted 05 March 2015 - 04:07 PM

Hey! My name is Meredith, and I am very new to programming. I built a 3D printer and have printed some stuff. I hope to get more involved in programming here and meet people with similar interests! I also love to play soccer and violin.

Hello Meredith and welcome. Is programming a hobby or do you have studies on it?

What are your interests? Do you have a major project personal or not?

I'm still new to this board, but it seems I'm becoming the major greeter :-). I'm 50 years old and I'm trying to relearn what I knew 25 years ago. This forum is loaded with much useful stuff; the search function is your friend here.

Welcome again. Enjoy your stay! :-)

It started out as a hobby, and now I am taking an intro course for computer science!

I'd hope to meet people with my interests in programming(I should have been clearer.). I am interested in computers, math, and science and am eager to have many further conversations about this. My computer class is not very advanced, so I'm going to try and get ahead using sources on the internet.

The Ultimaker Original +. It wasn't as common as the other Ultimakers so it was hard to find solutions to problems I had, but here is my documenting of building it. It probably took a total of 30 hours.

Nice! Do those things stink up the joint when being used? Hypothetically if I had one in an apartment would it get bad?

It depends on the plastic. I use PLA and will start to use Amphora, a plastic designed by Eastman specifically for 3D printing. ABS is what you want to stay away from. It emits not only a smell but I think it was also proven to be pretty dangerous in confined spaces... like an apartment. Other than ABS, PLA and Amphora are pretty cool to use!

@meredith Did you custom build that website? If so, you have excellent taste. What platform is it built on? Looks almost like its a square space template.

Yes, thank you! My brother have me the domain for my birthday and I have added and designed the pages, spending 99% of my time on the 3D printer sections. And yes, it's square space.
