Fixing a Warped 3D Printer Bed
The bed of my Printrbot Simple Metal (model 1403) was pretty seriously warped. By "scraping" it with a power sander, I was able to make it flat!

Better STL to BRep Conversion in Fusion 360
There is a better way to import STL models into Fusion 360 than the "Mesh to BRep" tool. 1. Convert STL into OBJ with quads (using ReCap Photo) 2. Import OBJ with quads into Fusion 360 3. Disable design history (which is the only way to get Sculpt mode) 4. Sculpt → Utilities → Convert → Quad mesh to T-splines 5. Sculpt → Utilities → Convert → T-splines to BRep 6. Re-enable design history Switch Pro Controller Stand on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3030629 It looks like the original 3D scan of the controller is no longer available on Thingiverse for whatever reason. Here is the smoothed version exported as an OBJ file with quads, ready to be imported into Fusion 360: http://nicholas.piegdon.info/stuff/SwitchProController.obj MeshMixer site: http://www.meshmixer.com/ ReCap Photo site: https://www.autodesk.com/products/recap/overview

ColecoVision Roller Controller to USB Adapter
I made a ColecoVision-to-USB adapter that is compatible with the Roller Controller (along with a few others like the Super Action Controller). It was my first USB project, my first PCB design, and my first 3D printed anything... so there are a few rough edges. Code, the EAGLE project, gerbers, 3D case files, and more can be found, here: https://github.com/npiegdon/coleco-hid
