Seeing as hutch-- has a working workshop now (see: other masm32 forum post & youtube video) , a reminder that
Fusion 360 is free for hobbyists. I myself, being extremely bad at CAD, mainly use the designer module of Fusion 360
to design and then 3D print my creations. But there's loads more to Fusion, per example: there's a nice tool included, that
generates organic structures (instead of human linear designs) based on the load bearing aspects of an object. There's
also free plug-ins that generate gears, screws and taps for your projects, some using online-and-browse-able-catalogs.
Are you pondering what I'm pondering? It's time to take over the world ! - let's use ASSEMBLY...

I have looked at 3D printers but usually come to the same conclusion, the ones that can be afforded by mere mortals only construct things in plastic and its low temperature plastic at that. This limits their use in engineering terms and while you can make cute gizmos, they are rarely ever much use. I tend to like practical things. You will find this one funny, I own a torch that takes 4 x 18650 batteries and its a portable search light, it has that much grunt but it had a silly problem, if you bumped it, the light would cut out.

Basically the contact at the top end of the 4 batteries against a piece of printed circuit board was unreliable so I made a base plate out of some 1mm brass sheet, marked it out, cut out what I could with tinsnips and cut the slots with a slitting wheel and when it fitted the hole that the 4 batteries fitted into, I made 4 dimples for the base of the batteries, plugged it in and BINGO, it works perfectly.

I guess being a metal worker means you see value in things made of metal that work.  :biggrin:

Fantastic! But doesn't that mean you have to queue twice?

At least in theory, it is possible to spit, urinate or poop directly over the 3D-printer and make it all in one pass.  :biggrin:

Yeah, they could design a computerised sewerage treatment system for domestic use.  :rofl:

For all the AW27, Siekmanski, Daydreamer types, or others just interested in shaders et. al
The OpenGL Shader (v4) Cookbook (full text), find it here:

Found and investigated this one - courtesy of a romper room discussion (think AW mentioned it):
GodBolt = https://godbolt.org/  - see your c/c++ code routines in glorious ASM (dependent on
compiler chosen not so glorious) At least provides you with an avenue to optimize beyond
what compilers can do - or just as a reference with bragging rights proof, showing your own
code running faster than "modern compilers".
