I was trying to make a smaller version of owens' Sierpinski tetrahedron model from Day 189, but stupidity got in the way. Specifically, I started the print and walked away before checking to make sure everything was okay. I know that I definitely Should Not Do This, but I did it anyway. Even worse, I also did it earlier in the day in the JMU MakerLab and caused a similar angel hair catastrophe that in that case required some serious cleanup and a replacement of the ceramic tape on the Replicator 2. In short, I was an idiot today, and the universe caught me on it twice. Fool me once...
Lessons learned which I either already knew or should have known but did not heed:
- Models don't stick as well on tape as they do on acrylic. (See picture above.)
- Models don't stick as well on glass as they do on glass with tape. (At the JMU MakerLab we have a new glass build platform!)
