Due to my involvement with electronics and the posts I've made about diodes, I thought it would be neat to create some diode graphics (Github) under CC-BY-NC-SA (Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike).

I've never really had the chance to use or test out a germanium diode before, so this was an exciting opportunity for me to try one out! Of course, I first wanted to see if the sayings that there would be voltage drop of around 0.3 volts would be accurate...

Currently, my basement has flooded, which means a pause for my projects for a little while. I'll be getting back to the Filastruder project soon. In the meantime, I have some interesting information about the history and information of a part that I found in some old boxes of components- a germanium diode.

After I had my 3D printer for a couple months, I had the urge to extrude my own filament. Filament isn't that cheap, and by extruding my own filament, I would have the ability to use whatever plastics I wanted, and whatever amounts I wanted. All on my own time.
So, I bought a Filastruder kit!

Welcome to this week's edition of Thingiverse Reviews! Today, we'll be looking at one of the latest prints I tried out- the 3D-Printed Screw-In Front Lenscaps by profhankd. Pictured here is one of the lenscaps that I printed, attached to the lens of my camera.

Last week, I described the process of making a print with a precise color change. Using the CuteOcto.stl file, we created a gcode file with a color change 30 layers up in an 85 layer print.

Now that we've exported both of our STLs into g-code, it's time to combine them into one part. We'll be using YAGV, or Yet Another Gcode Viewer, to view these files. It can be run in the downloaded directory (cd yagv-master) with python yagv [filename.gcode], with your own G-code file substituted with "filename.gcode".
