    Alright here we go. Name is Blahdidbert - been doing this security thing for close to 20 years now. As for labs, I have a little humble station with a few VMs to test and blow things up. Have a few certs but I find the most enjoyment in the DFIR field of the house. During the off hours I use and absolutely love my 3D printer. Look forward to seeing this community grow.

      Welcome welcome blahdidbert! We're excited to have you here and I'm looking forward to hearing some interesting DFIR related stories!

      What are you mainly printing with your 3d printer? Most recently I've been experimenting with some different filaments like Ninja Flex.I see a lot of really epic prints online that must be months in the making, but I feel like most of mine are pretty simple - little tools or small toys for my wife's students. I think my next little project will be a battery box for a motorcycle build I'm dreaming up.

      Thanks for introducing yourself!

        I know that feeling. I can't count the number of octopi/elephants that I have printed or even screws/nuts. The kids love the weird toys from time to time.
        Most of the prints are experimenting with just large projects in general. For example, here is a life size Mjolnir: https://imgur.com/albQU9g. That's a Lenovo W520 for scale.
        I am reprinting a life size Soldier 76 Rifle from MyMiniFactory. The first print was a hodge of different colors and filaments: https://imgur.com/FNeaUZP

        How do you like the flex? Any tips or particular brands?

          blahdidbert Uhhh your prints are seriously awesome!! LOL I cannot touch that with anything I have done. What kind of printer do you have?

          The flex stuff is pretty neat, it really is like printing in rubber and I've seen some tutorials on making things like bouncy balls. I've been using the ninjatek brand and have tried their NinjaFlex filament as well as the Cheetah filament they make. The big change for me was print speed, I really slowed everything down to around 15-20 mm/s if I recall my last print settings. I was printing some small parts that were a lot like friction rings used in sailing and I wanted to be able to have a little flex when things were strained. it worked great! Some of the wear problems I was experiencing using harder materials went away but it seems very durable.

          I'm still blown away by your awesome prints!

            HA! I greatly appreciate the kudos. Currently printing on a Prusa i3 MK3S. One of these days I will hook up the MMU2S my wife got me but I have been loving the single filament so much I don't want to mess it up. lol I am now going to have to check out this filament. There was a couple times I thought a gasket or something would be perfect.
