A small but nice 3d print of the common Owl model to fill the time till the screws for my new adjustable extruder are delivered. With this new extruder I hope to be able to print Soft-PLA successfully, which I can not print till now, very likely because my static, spring-based extruder has only one ...

You are using Google Chrome...

Do you know that Google is known for not respecting your privacy and using your data without really asking for it?
For instance Chrome will scan your computer and the files you saved on it, transfers data about your internet surfing to Google and creates a extensive profile about you as a Chrome user while combining those data with all other services of Google.

Additional information can be found here: Why you should not use Google products if you can avoid it.

Because of that I highly recommend using another browser:


If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
