I have had some messages alerting me to some strange happenings on the Morgan site.
My hosting provider had to move my site to a different server today…
You should see an performance improvement
If not, let me know!

And, we are back!
My Data center service provider suffered loss of connectivity due to a city wide power problem, followed by data corruption…
Note to self: Make more backups!
2013 has been a great year. It saw the birth and maturity of Morgan, and the beginnings of a great forum of hackers pulling together in the builders section.
It also saw the Uplift interim prize awarded to Morgan
December has been unusually busy both in my day-job and developments around a space for Morgan at H4H.
January I will have some time to catch up with Morgan development and printed parts manufacturing.
Thanks for your interest… Without you this would probably still have been another one of my crazy projects filed away in my shelf.
After a WordPress upgrade the Forum disappeared from the menu… The Horror!
Got it back though…
Ever so slightly off topic on the Morgan blog… One of my fellow House4hackers will be leaving soon, and has a large collection of tools, gadgets, hacks, printing equipment (printing press stuff) etc. that he would like to land in good homes before the metal recyclers have a go at it. I am going to get some stuff there for sure, but there are a lot of good toys to be had…
I have just committed a new set of slic3r settings to the calibration folder of the Morgan Git repository.
It is compatible with bleeding edge slic3r (0.9.11-dev) and should give any user a good platform for experimentation.
I am using it in my growing Morgan farm to make parts for the kits.
If you have variations on these that delivers particularly good results, please share!
I added my calibration phantom and spreadsheet to the Morgan git repository.
Print the STL, and enter the measurements in the spreadsheet. It is not perfect, but take the guesswork out of calibrating the steps per angle.
Remember to keep the calibration guide in mind when changins steps per mm. The offsets change when the steps do, and you will have to reprogram the theta 0 and theta-psi 90 angles again.
