As the official first post, I am curious as to what a Nuon-Dome is. Is it a sports arena? A funny hat? Or perhaps a weird alien technology?

I am unfamiliar with this specific DVD technology - have any info to share with those who will likely be wondering what this is as well?

More info at the site, specifically here: http://www.nuon-dome.com/info.html

Basically NUON is a chip that was built into a few DVD players that gave them game functionality. A few games that were released for the platform include Tempest 3000, Iron Soldier 3 and Merlin Racing.

NUON-Dome is the fansite I've been running for the platform for about 5 years now.

Gotta run, be back later :)

Are those the ones you know of, or the only ones that exist?

Those are the only ones that were ever made with full NUON functionality. Some RCA machines (DRC300N and DRC480N) have the NUON chip inside but only use it for its DVD playback features. There are no controller ports and commercial games won't run on them. They do have a limited VLM inside, and homebrew games will work, however - but you'll have to control them with the I.R. Remote (not fun!).

It's good to have a place for the NUON-Dome forums. I was wondering what was going on over there.

I'm a happy owner of three NUONs, although one doesn't play CDs :( I've been following NUON since '97, it was known as Project X at the time. It really had a lot of potential, which I doubt we'll ever see it's full potential realized. But it did change things, in it's own little way. Being the first DVD game system (yes before the PS2 and it's rumored that PS2 had a little influence from NUON and they were scared of the technologies potential).

    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!
