|It's my greatest fan... duct.|
|The nut traps were just about perfect - I had to hammer in a couple of the nuts, but then they would fall out.|
|Around the nozzle, the print was into thin air, and it shows.|
|More amazingly, this bridge was built across nothing, and it worked. Printers are magic.|
|This is the crazy backup solution in case the printed one doesn't work: Cut two old ones to match up.|
Now is the time for... another cube, of course. Yes, it looks nice. The printer has not suddenly become fatally broken. More interestingly, another boat.

The boat came out much better this time, only one weird strip on the hull, only slight cracks on the foredeck.
|Still these cracks in top surfaces, like the boxes|
|You can almost tell what it says|
Since I need my laptop for other purposes, I went all the way with the Pi and just started OctoPrint, then uploaded some pieces and started printing, first the guide. Problem with this is that when you start a print from another room, you might forget details like Z calibration and hairspray. All the more reason to get the calibration automated. And of course I need to mount a webcam that can look under the duct. I have the cam, just need to design a thing it can sit on.
