    How did they do communaly? A lot of people say they to great, even helping one another, and a lot more are saying it is a risk, that they will sooner or later kill one another. I currently got 3 0.5" slings in a 32oz cup.

    love the videos since the old apartment days! just a thought from an engineer on the door pins breaking; 3D printing those will always be a weak point because of how printing works, even with larger diameters. if you design the doors with holes for metal pins of the same size that you insert after printing, it will be much more robust and easy!

  • Rook9696

    you should print your hinges twice as thick and instead of printing the pin into it use some metal rod as an insert pin

  • Godchi1d Von Steuben

    If the door pulls were closer to the center of the doors, pulling them would put much less pressure on the hinges.

    You have a huge heart. I love felix, he is soooooo sweet. I worry that he may get hurt by one of the large tarantula that may escape. Felix has so much personality , he's so loved and spoiled by you that he wont flip his tongue for his dinner....its adorable!

    Petko, may i be so bolt to make a suggestion.. 😶 please try to clean the edges of the glass with alcohol beforehand of glueing.. it will make sure that all stains from grabbing them with your hands (and I don't know if you cut the glass to size, so if you didn't they may have even more stains) and it can be that the seals come to let loose in the future. I'm absolutely trying to help and not criticize or stand in your way.. just wanting to help so you make the best out of your materials (which all cost enough, we all know it and that's why we build it ourselves Most of the time of course) for a looong time 😶😊 I love to see you build it, it is looking awesome and I am a 'do it yourselver' too, it just gives so much satisfaction! 😊👌😎
