AboutNoob programer... Not really, have a few years of code but didn't code for a while... Now I'm back!
Skillsnot good at anything right now. I was really good at VB6 back when...

Have a problem with my custom made desktop.
On games, after 5, 10, 20 minutes the PC freezes and I have to restart.
It's not the graphics card, but I think the CPU is overheating.
It's a new i5 8gen Hexacore, shouldn't be overheating.
Any tools I could use to diagnose what is happening?
Hey guys, sorry for disappearing... I haven't been in my good days lately.
Other than that... two days ago I said fuck you to my burn out, got tired of doing nothing and start job hunting.
Yesterday I've sent 3 e-mails.
Today I got phone calls for 2 Interviews.
That's the good part of being good at a specialized job :D2
#arduino #led matrix
So, this is my first led matrix using a 74hc595n, I did all the connections right, isolated the cathodes (-), and when I tested, I only connected one cathode (to test one row, when almost all the lights turned on, in all rows doing a chacing... So I disconnected the negative wire and it still works.
One led in the arduino blinks (L).
GND is only connected to the shift register
All the rows light up doing a colum chase when there is no negative.
#eletrónics, #power suply
Hey guys, I have a question about power.
I converted a 400w power suply into a power suply for my projects.
With more than 10amps per wire can I use the 5 volts to power stuff like my phone or Will it burn?
Also it gives 5.3v is that a problem?3
So... At this time we think that everything is already invented...
And I keep making new stuff...
New Idea, mini vacuum cleaner... only found one design online and was so badly done... So I made mine.
Happens all the time... Search, nothing I like, do it myself. And worst, I'm not even good at CAD programs lol.
Any Ideas for tools to make?4
So, I have a new printer for parts.
Question, what type of glass does scanner uses? Does it have some special treatment or is it normal glass? Thanks8
Trying to create something, after 2 months without any energy...
A simple project, a Joule thief...
damn fucking thing isn't working BAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I would like to share a video clip with you guys, about the burning of one of the biggest Portuguese forests with 800 years old.
It's mostly in Portuguese and sign language but the images speak all.
I prefer the first video:
sudo apt-get update year
Appy new year guys.
I know I've been away but I will be back when I get better.5
what do you guys use to control your DIY CNCs?
I'm using UGS, Universal Gcode Platform, but it has a slight problem... doesn't work with functions.
Meaning, I just had to write a 75 lines program that could be an 8 line program If I could use loops and GOTO...
Also, what CAM software do you use?15
Do you remember the formation I was going to take? Eletrónics, robotics and computers... It has been delayed again because there isn't enough people....
No one wants a job in the area where the future lies... Stupid, stupid people.
Thanks guys for the help in the last weeks.
This is what I was so hard trying to print.
Btw... reminder to self, plastic expands. That's why the stepper has duck tape instead of screws lol33
Create my own company with the stuff I'm learning....
Been lacking that a lot , and with all the medication....
Else I would be dropping like one app a week, have my webportal already built, a few CNCs already producing pieces to sell...
Hey guys, continuing the yesterday's topic...
This is the result of all I learned and tested yesterday.
Problem: new black filament from China.
Result, piece is bent and cracked.
Brim: fucking 25 mm
Inicial speed 20 mm/s
Adesion: glue stick + airspray + permanent glue spray
And the pieces still fucking bend in the table contact side.
Top is perfect except for some cracks, but the bellow side is just pressed to itself and bends, warping the piece.
What could I change now? What could be the problem and reason for this? Worked perfectly with the first white filament.31
Pieces won't fucking stick.
Hey 3D guys. So... I changed to my second fillament rool, from white to black PLA.
The white worked perfectly, but I'm having lots of problems with the black. It just doesn't stick right on the table and than drags strings , with ends up fucking the piece.
I was printing at 200C, now upped to 220C and it just seams to cool to fast or something...
Cleaned the table, leveled like 30 times so far, using lots of airspray...
Do I need to up the heat more? Or may I already givint to much?
the fillament says from 220C to 260C, but I'm afraid the 3D printer can't handle arround 250C38
The first filamment for my 3D printer had to end at 4h30 in a 5h30 program. FUCKKKKK
Tryed to replace while pausing the printer, but the fucking merlin doesn't reset the extruder stepper motor, so... when I resumed the print it wouldn't extrude filament, because the position of the extruder was wrong....
Well. At least printer time is cheap... I'll just print all the pieces and leave it until tomorow night printing lol3
Fucking computer went on a fritz at 2am after a hard reset ...
Got it to restart, no sound.
Trying a restore point, hope it's software.6
I'm so happy.
If nothing goes wrong I'm starting a formation on eletrónics, robotics and hardware in the end of the month...
Oh yeah, exactly what I needed right now.
All companies are the same.
Some are a little more transparent than others but if there is a board of directors, the final interest is money, and only money.
So all companies will betray their costumers if that means more profit.
Microsoft? Google? Amazon? In the end they are all the same.
I don't even trust people, let alone a brand.4
How do I calculate the cost of a machine in power consumed?
Like, my 3D printer has a 40A power suply, how could I calculate to get a € value from it?
So... I finally decided to secure my VPS, so I started with sudo less /var/log/auth.log ...
Short story, not even gonna read every line, just gonna reset my VPS lol11
Building my herd list for 3D printers.
looking for Devs with a 3D printer and likes to share knowledge and Ideas?23
