Easy? lol, considering you (assumingly) have no knowledge of API, I do not see what you mean :p.

So yeah, I mastered API, which is a part (advanced) of Actionscript in flash which you use to code graphical things like lines to a point.

Thanks for testing, I'll see about an eraser, might be beyond me though >_<.

Completely useless, but fun to mess around with :p

Hehehe, and corvus demonstrates ignorance on the subject. From the little of what I know about Actionscript, it's a pretty basic language for doing little, as it is made just for manuevering Flashes. However, a good piece of code can make it pretty powerful for various kinds of systems, like a simple false-3d engine.

Indeed, 3D is impossible in Flash (unless exporting things from Swift 3D etc).

Actionscript itself is very very basic, but as I've learnt the hard way, API is a fairly difficult thing for someone like me (even if it only took me 2 weeks to master).

as soon as I get a good image out of this, I'm gonna post some screenies xD.

( Rin's right, it's completely useless, but I find it fun to use atm xD).

That is anything but easy...
You have to create the lines using "lineTo(x,y)" for each line then you have to change the colors (beginFill(0xHEXNUMBER,ALPHA) if im right) then the thickness (not sure how to do that yet)

So yea...
Its kinda hard. GJ Jindo I like it

It is pretty easy once you get used to it, you don't have to use x,y, you can just use things like '_xmouse, _ymouse' or '_root.inst._x, _root.inst._y'.

beginFill I can use to work (the squares that you drag), but I was also trying to get it to fill any graps made from creating the lines, which didn't work out.

you'd make the lines work using 'lineStyle', the properties come up in that (you only have to set a few of them if a tonne come up).

Overall, this is kind of a big jump for me in Flash as it's the first working piece of API I've made :shades:.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
