MarkC reminded me I hadn’t written anything about the very first step in getting the ATX supply working. I’ve updated this post yet again, so all the information is in one place.
What is Desktop 3D Printing?
Imagine a robot that sits on your desk, and builds anything you tell it to from a spool of bioplastic.
Imagine that it makes these things by heating up the plastic then squeezing it out like toothpaste from a tube. Imagine it smells faintly of caramelizing sugar.
Imagine that the designs for the printer, the software that runs it, the software that designs things to be printed, and almost infinite quantities of pre-made designs, are all free.
I don't have to imagine any of that, I've got it sitting on my desk right now.
