It's 80 here.  We've gone past the edge... probably never have normal weather again.

Stronger, doesn't degrade outdoors, higher melting point. Downside other than the heated bed that needs to be tuned to prevent slipping is the extrusion stinks a bit like burny plastic. A lot of people prefer to have ventilation when printing ABS. I kinda like the sheen on PLA better, but for hard parts I like ABS.

havn't done abs yet but getting decent prints with petg.
It isn't for detail work, get some stringing and boogers but not so bad as when I first started using it.
strong stuff.

Well why I wanted to try abs was the fact that you can melt two pieces together with a bit of acetone as well as smooth it in a vapor bath.  Seems like two very useful properties.

You get what you get and you don't get upset. (He says, as he tries to change his plane ticket to Thursday.)
Sorry to hear that it caused you trouble.

Have you upgraded to stainless steel nozzles yet?  They seem to work better.

Ok, so this is bideo gamez related, if not arcade.

Picked up a 7800 at ZapCon this year. Robotron is cool, but holding both joysticks to play can be unwieldy. A trip to Thingiverse and 20 hours later...













Time to get my Robotron on!

That is pretty awesome.  I remember the 7200 version of Robotron being a pretty good port.

If I were you, I'd increase the spacing between the two controllers.  It could help with keeping it stable, as well as not banging each hand into one another.

Itís cool, I tested it out. The throw isnít that bad and it works just fine. The whole thing kind of fits in your hands and use your thumbs in front of the sticks to manipulate everything. Itís almost like holding a large console controller.

If you make it to ZapCon next year, Iíll bring it to the PAC house.

I kinda regret sleeping on the 7800 as a kid now that you've been posting about it and I've looked at some of these ports.  I actually pulled one out of the trash with games and controllers back in the late 80s but gave it to my uncle that already had one.  Oh well, that's what Ebay is for.  You bring the system and I'll bring some chicken wings.

7800 is on my console get list, but I tend to try and find consoles at a yard sale, ect instead of giving up the hunt and jumping to flea bay.  I've got to admit though, finding anything older than a n64 out in the wild is getting tough around here. 

Before the NES me and my cousins would play on the 7800 for hours.... of course I was too young to know at the time that they got them a 7800 and supplied them mostly with 2600 carts you could get for a couple of bucks post-crash.

I had never seen one in the wild back in the day, but Iíve always wanted to get one when I learned about them. I got kind of lucky they had one at ZapCon fairly inexpensively.

Oh yeah.  When they started releasing it with the nes-like gamepad... it was pretty sad how dumb they thought the average consumer was.  I love me some 7800, but it's hot garbage compared to the Nintendo.
