Where is everyone? Did I miss something?
« on: November 06, 2018, 04:33:58 AM »
I have been away for awhile, 3D printing bug bit me, but this place was crazy busy the last time I was here and now its almost dead, where is everyone?  Is there a newer better electronic gizmo that everyone is obsessed with instead of our lasers? Did I miss something?  Have lasers gone the way of the fidget spinner?

There might not be a lot of posting, but the numbers of those who visit this forum daily are up by quite a bit.

I keep checking back, my laser is churning away with BCL with minimal issues, but I haven't done anything too interesting to report on... short of ordering a 15W laser that Canada Customs refused and sent back... and then I had to file a claim with EBay. 

I'm in the "no-news-is-good-news" group. ;)

I think there is so much good information that most of the new people questions are already answered.

There still are some new people asking questions.
EleksMaker now has a Discord channel and I have been helping some new people there. I point them here and keep pushing T2 and BCL.

most want free and then complain that they dont work (for some reason).
It doesnt help that the EleksCAM dev left EleksMaker and kept the source code. EleksMakerZ is rebuilding the program from scratch and trying to improve it.

Someone absconded with the source code, well that stinks.  Glad to see people are still lasering along.

Still checking in occasionally, but these guys have answered all my important questions. Still, I'm sure i will keep asking a si keep trying new things.
Someone gave me some leather offcuts to try, so I'll search on here first, experiment then ask where did i go wrong.
