@Phaedrux Well, thats just annoying.
I have a very distinct feeling that I popped up at that table but every one was engaged in other conversations. I know I was at the E3D table. Could not get any one to notice. Not the end of the world. I am not exactly a big investor.
I know, I could not even get any place near the Bondtech table. To many very firmly rooted feet, in place, not moving an inch for very long conversations. Closest I got was the table with the Mosquito hot ends. Was a wall of men from that point on, all the way to the E3D table.
Did see the SeeMeCNC stuff. Paired up with TAZ. The props on the table, and the giant machine in the corner.
Saw Joel too, and similar, always a wall. Not that I had any business with him.
-Was a bit like seeing the back of Bruise Willis's head (I sub contracted at a hotel he stayed at in NYC).
Chatted up the Guys at Olsen Ruby a bit. Found out that the Ruby is not for me until I start working with abrasives. Tried to take interest in the PLA booth directly across from them. But other than having a massive stock they had nothing I wanted.
Coolest things I saw were the Lady with the fully articulated Jackalope from hell. And the guy with the mechanically functional Engine w/ functional Transmission. Those two were impressive.
Got to meet the guys from TH3D. That was cool.
The Railcore ii builds were for sure worth note too. I want their aluminum parts, and linear rail computer leveled 3 axis Z. I want to add that to the E3D multi head machine. Then incorporate the TH3D sensor. -Well, I can dream right??
So E3D's multi head, how come that thing isn't official but so many seemed to have it? are the plans public now? or have I over looked it's launch? What happened to the TAZ variant? Heck, why didnt TAZ have much to anything to even show this year, despite launching their PRO only days before the show, whats up with that?
One thing to look forward too, the guys selling goop, said they have a PETG compatible line coming. So that applies to me. Yay. I asked then to look at M3D Tough Ink too. So I look forward to their spray on stuff or PETG and maybe Tough Ink.
There was a guy building a Railcore II. He had a pile of thin washer/shims that he was using and gave me the empty bag to help me find them online. Very valuable, since the FT-6 shipped with washers that grab both sides of the bearings and these shims will let the bearings spin properly!
I hoped to see more next gen tech previews. Maybe some new hot end tech. But didn't.
Still need All metal hot end parts that actually fit together properly.
Still looking for hacks to help with making better and worse skins.
