    [–] TIL “Black panther” is redundant and that panther is not a species of animal caldera 1 points ago in todayilearned

    There is no actual species called the panther, however "panther" is a name given to either leopards or jaguars that have all black coats, due to an excess of the dark pigment melanin. They can also be referred to as melanistic leopards or melanistic jaguars.

    While the coat is usually all black, sometimes the rosette markings can just be seen if you look closely (not recommended in real life!)

    [–] [Ender 3 + MicroSwiss] Thermistor loop snapped - what do I do? caldera 1 points ago in 3Dprinting

    Is there a particular "kind" I am looking for? Amazon prime? Can the existing line for the thermistor be used and spliced into since it would seem to be heat bearing or should I replace the whole wire/line?

    [–] [Ender 3 + MicroSwiss] Thermistor loop snapped - what do I do? caldera 2 points ago in 3Dprinting

    It appears to be broken right at the actual bulbous thermistor? Also, since this this thing gets super hot will regular solder work since it would just melt?

    [–] [Ender 3 + BL Touch + TH3D Firmware] I have variable print levels despite having ABL enabled and a probe of 3x3. I've adjusted the Z-Probe offset multiple times but it is still giving this. What gives? caldera 1 points ago in 3Dprinting

    All of the pictured is the first layer - my start GCode:

    I would hope the don't share more information than necessary - hell all they need to share is an ID and a number of dollars. I am a software engineer and have been in tech for more than a 15 years now. I take it back. I'd bet they are sharing everything sigh
