think that it would need red and blue/green filters as I cannot see how polaroid separation could work on a PC.

Red (L)-Blue(R) anaglyph is one way. I think most stereo3D-philes would prefer either

- side-by-side postings in:

(a) cross-eyed mode - right image on left; left image on right, or

(b) wall-eyed (parallel-eyed) mode - left image on left right image on right


- simply post the individual image and let the user do his/her favourite thing.

Just a word of appreciation for starting this thread. It has been really, really interesting !

If you post the two images separately, I’m sure we could pair them up for ourselves.



Posting the images separately - or, Raymond, simply putting them in your album with a note to that effect in a post here - would be fine for me.

My breath is bated.

FWIW, I typically resize my pics to 8" x 6" @120 pixels/inch which works for me and gives a decent size picture for the user if he clicks on it in a post.

Certainly ohm-meter measurements, with the thermistor plug disconnected at the PCB, indicate an intermittent open-circuit. Moreover that's the failure mode I'd expect from a constantly flexing cable. There's no visual sign of any short.

So I think your explanation has it, Duncan - thanks.

Thread: Terabyte Internet Speed
26/05/2020 18:23:41

Just musing but ... it seems to me that the capacity of the world wide internet infrastructure depends not only on the number of people using it and their activities but also on the data speed. Doubling the data speed effectively doubles the capacity, which alone may be a good reason for increasing speeds regardless of whether most users can actually capitalise on those speeds.

Or maybe that's stating the obvious blush

Thanks, Neil (not Niel as I'm sure you know wink ).

So a temperature display that flickers from 60 °C to 7000-odd °C is indicating an intermittent short rather than open circuit.

26/05/2020 16:25:52

The typical heat bed thermistor .... does its resistance increase or decrease with rising temperature?

I'm assuming it decreases but I would like to get it confirmed.

Sam, if you're interested - or becoming interested - in 3D Stereo, you might want to browse this site.

This **LINK** explains various techniques including free-viewing which might work for you. For me, it doesn’t.

My brain seems to have been exercised on too many occasions to only take a cross-eyed view of things.cheeky

Just to be clear, Sam "free-viewing" encompasses both wall-eyed (parallel) and cross-eyed viewing.

Never having seen them before, I’d guess the half-blinds in those Ritech glasses separate the left/right image pair and don’t send you cross-eyed?

Exactly, Sam. They're made for viewing side-by-side movies I think and I've used them for that with internet offerings quite effectively. Mostly I have the blinds wide open though.

Michael, that is very effective - thanks. I still can't free-view it any more though. Back in the day I was heavily into stereo photography (Stereo-Realist, Viewmaster and other cameras). I still have most of the cameras (except Viewmaster) I think. Film's presumably a problem these days.

In those days I could free view (wall-eyed) at the drop of a hat. Ah, the delights of ageing. I'm going down the road to cataracts myself

23/05/2020 01:27:04

I could never do cross-eyed well Sam. More of a wall-eyed man myself (and not very good at that any more at my age - at one time I could just drop straight in ).

In any event, I copied the pic , flipped the shots and viewed with Ritech glasses blush.

That's pretty interesting. Never thought of doing stereo on PCBs.

At the bottom of each post there's a link titled 'ignore member' all you have to do is use it. and you'll never see a post from them ever again.


... except every time they are quoted.

Thread: A polite note to beginners from ARC
21/05/2020 01:27:14

It would be nice if people would take others' posts at face value more, rather than colouring them with their own prejudices.

(On that score one could take a leaf out of Ketan's book).

Yes, this shows off the ARC product in question. He does not get extra commission for this.

"extra" That's an interesting word. Does that mean he does get commission from Arc in other situations?

Coming from a person who once suggested to me 'if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen', I cant tell if your post is meant to be a joke or sarcasm teeth 2...

Neither one Ketan - I honestly don't see why you would assume that.

Simply that the conjunction of "extra" with "commission" suggests, to me, that there is a level of commission which is not "extra" and I was curious.

Maybe curious (or picky) would be a better word than joke or sarcasm.

Wow! you have a long memorysmiley

Do you do 3D printing?

Yes but almost exclusively from my own designs.


I do my own stuff too (really get a kick out of modelling then seeing the printed result!).

However I'm printing something right now from Thingi. It's a longish print (~8 hrs) and it's not going that well. I think the design could be modified to improve printing (and function actually) with some simple changes. But .... I only have an STL file. The only other recourse is to remodel it from scratch.
