and finito.. this filament was AWFULL.. i had to carfully get the supports off then basically baste it in acetone to get it NOT to peel apart.. zero cohesion.. and its YELLOW!!!!!



If i did the mathematicalisms corectly it should give me eyeline centred view as well

I went down to the local JayCar and bought this mic, splitter, some cable and some jacks.. and hopefully what we will see by end of project is dual feed to GP2, for a whopping $16.. in helmet and from back of bike.

on back of bike I am not sure yet, if underseat, or on the top of seat. either way i need to limit the wind noise so built a housing on the printer to fit the mic and close of its side holes, so its directional only, using the mics own rubber backing to seal the rear entry.

this will be attached with a square of mirror mounting double sided tape (cuz thast what i have laying around) under the seat cavity in test 1, and then im going to print tonight a "buckle" that will fit on the strap on the back of the MT seat to slide the housing into so i can record on TOP of the seat, facing backward..

Will test both this weekend and update this same post.

Nice design!

Please don't be like the organ donors I see on youtube splitting lanes at high speed, running up my motorcycle insurance premiums. :lol:

Ha! One always hopes not.. and yet here i sit with a reconstructed shoulder, 3 disc operations and a smashed up knee.. not bad for 25 years of biking though all up.

I see i missed a post as part of this project in here somehow.. i made a Hook/Sheild on for my intermnal mic too so you can hear my melodious voice and engaging commentary as I ride..... :roll:

and the feed at 60 - 1??km/h

after my "engaging commentary most folks felt it was probably best if i setup a rear mic to get the MT's booming exhaust sound instead :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

When engineers make a mistake , they dont call it a mistake.. they call it a development prototype..

the first version of the clip was no good, my strap was way too tight.. and the cohesion in this printed material, way to low.. SNAP!

revised that sucker to this more robust version! and printing lengthways so "grain" is along the tension not across it...

Glad to see you are utilizing your creativity and the printer to make functional items.

The reason i got the 3d printer is that i can make many many many mistakes early and fast - ooops
Because if i make an OOPS it may be very costly down stream and some times very bad outcomes.

OOOPS = development prototype :)

oh.. PS.. if anyone is wondering how my printer is suddenly printing ok even with the winbo filament.. a spanner, a hammer and some swearing fixed it.. I will try get time on weekend to photograph the part of the printer that was causing the issue and how to fix it. its a very fundamental design flaw in this printer and what happened to mine can happen to anyones..

the clip above printed in winbo filament at full temp, no mods. supports broke away easily, part surface is great etc.. more what I was expecting..

[edit] info on fix here http://www.pp3dp.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... =40#p40803
