Love letter by a ProE Designer

Dear Missing Component,

Life has been really hard and I cant get out of this RESOLVE MODE since you have left. I have been trying to LOCATE the missing element and cant SUPPRESS my feelings. I just cant REGENERATE without you. Without you, I'm like a PACKAGED ASSEMBLY. My heart is like a STEP file gone bad with MISSING SURFACES. I am haunted by the thought of you going into another assembly.

I have been keeping my feelings in HIDDEN LAYERS all these while. I liked you for your SIMPLIFIED REPRESENTATION. Your STYLE DEFINITION is the best. I cant forget the RENDERED IMAGE of yours. Your face is like Class-A surface made out of a perfect BLEND. Your body is like a ideal VARIABLE SECTION SWEEP. I have your COPY GEOMETRY with me in my mind and I have defined it as READ-ONLY to protect it forever.

I assure you that if there are conflicts in the RELATION, we can MODIFY THE RELATIONS. If the PARENT-CHILD-RELATION is a problem, we can REROUTE that as well. The PARAMETERS are modifiable. And all problems can be RESOLVED for a perfect regeneration.

My SEARCH-PATH will always be looking for you....

Your Ex neighbouring part...

Controlling LED through Octolapse for 3D print timelapse

Today's post is about one of the 3D Printing adaptation that I learned. This is specifically about how to control an LED light automatically through OctoLapse so that it is switched on only when the timelapse photo is taken. Just as a background, I have been learning to use 3D printer and its customizations options for a few months now and was a lot of learning since then. The best thing was OctoPi, a platform for controlling the 3D printer and the many plugin options that are developed by the community.  Most of them are like open source. Today we will discuss specifically about an adaptation to one such plugin, OctoLapse. OctoLapse is the plugin for taking timelapse photos, with many options for further customisations. One of the best timelapse method is taking photo after each layer is complete, by moving the head out of the way. You can use standard Pi Camera or a DSLR, which is great to get good resolution videos. One small flash back before we dive into the topic.  I keep the
