@Krita Peertube link for the release notes: share.tube/videos/watch/1180b9

(seems unboostable right now because I just changed the visibility and that hasn't propagated yet -_- )

And we've got a new feature release! Krita 4.3.0 is out for Linux, Windows, MacOS and as a beta still, for Android: krita.org/en/item/krita-4-3-0-

I need to be better about watching gsoc projects of my favorite programs.

Not only the @Krita android port is slowly becoming a reality but also there is a gsoc to integrate the amazing brushes to :)

By the way if you have an android tablet and want to help this amazing /#FOSS tool up you can install the experimental android version and report bugs. :)

re: CW: yt link - re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@silverseams I think I will eventually invest in one even if I end up not going for a 3-in-one so no stones to throw there. (I might end up opting out through depending on where the linux support is next month when I will commit to a decision -and the price)

re: CW: yt link - re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo sorry!!!! :D Do you actually need the features or just new cool item case? :D

(Also I am beginning to feel like the only person who actually does NOT want a larger printer and is trying to find something smaller than is available :D )

@silverseams by the way I hope we are not spamming you. :)

CW: yt link - re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams it looks like creality is copying snapmaker designs so they are screwed in place, but I guess that is something to be very careful about. (youtube.com/watch?v=s__H_bcFvd is a good overview btw)

but definite issues with lack of settings on cura by default. Also while it comes with safety glasses, I cannot imagine using the CNC beyond brief carefully supervised uses the engrave/cut outlines on thin materials.

Can anyone recommend a good digital audio interface for music recording?

I would like something with at least 8 inputs, though I'm also interested in anything cheap even if it has fewer than that.

Mine is a PCI card, but that seems to be old tech now -- and it would be nice to have something that could work over USB, for use with a laptop.

I'll want to use it with Linux, but at this point I'll take recommendations for anything even if you don't know whether there are Linux drivers; I'll do the research and/or take the risks.

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams I wouldn't see it as a dedicated CNC and laser engraver, but this issue of very limited usefulness is same for all 3-in-one machines that I can see.

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo I think after all this I will either go for Creality CP-01 3-in-one (which has a direct extruder) or ender3 v2 (which I was told is arriving next month to local distributor - that I didn't even realize was an option) depending on how the price difference between the two ends up being.

Thanks for the helpful advice!!

@silverseams thanks for connecting us! :)

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams oh I am ok fiddling with the slicer, printing parts. Its electronics work, 3rd party firmware and required part upgrades to buy (locally available parts are very limited) are the deal breakers for me. (cont)

free and open source music composition software now with ~design~. amazing! musescore.org/en/MuseScore4

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams feel free to reply (time permitting) it is actually helpful, Also primary use of this printer will be to print lens adapters and threads, parts for Pi etc

(also some technical questions teflon tube vs plastic, how much of a change it does in clogging/print quality. and how much of a quality loss does direct extruder would cause - that's my biggest worry with the 3-in-ones)

Thanks again!

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams In terms of Ender 3/Ender 3 pro. My main concern is electronics out in open, and safety issues like no thermal runaway out of the box. I am really looking for something that will work out of box, and especially not require me to fix the electronics. (printing a better spool holder is less of an issue). But I can consider slightly higher price range items if they will be worth it (e.g. CR-10s Pro, CP-01, CR-X is the limit)

re: question about choosing a 3D printer 

@sungo @silverseams ok wow. thanks for the information, and now comes the fun part. My main issue is access to models. none of prusa are available locally (and for a variety of reasons I am trying to avoid importing a printer) same with most monoprice models (I really REALLY wish I had bought this thing back when it was Malyan M200). Creality is generally findable, so is wanhao and ultimaker (which is sorely out of my price range) (cont)

question about choosing a 3D printer 

@RyuKurisu prices are actually coming down these days, but especially the post processing and disposal of the waste makes it not a very attractive option. (make no mistake I thought they were cool too when I started my research on options)

@polychrome I didn't know about the brittleness through! Thank you for that information

question about choosing a 3D printer 

ok so trying to buy a and can use some advice/opinions from people who have experience with the machines in question.

Narrowed down to Adventurer 3 and duplicator i3 mini.

What I am looking for is minimal fuss (I am looking at this as a tool, not a hobby), safe (no open power units and fire hazard cable connections), quiet (living in a tiny apartment with neighbors), and in this my price range. (cont)
