First, a shout-out to @Larry_Bowers, who noticed the site was down on Friday. I happened to be in an airport when I got his email and could get online and fix the issue, which was caused by sloppy site administration on my part. To ensure accessibility, I have subscribed to Pingdom, so all of the MakeWithTech sites will be monitored 24x7. You can access the public site uptime page at:
As I add services in support of the MakeWithTech community, my costs are climbing. I use YouTube ad revenue, affiliate links, and in the future, models.makewithtech.com subscriptions to offset these costs. But do not worry; forum memberships and basic models.makewithtech.com customizer access will always be free.
In terms of Model @ MakeWithTech, the site is up to over 60 customizable models in the new MakeWithTech directory and growing every day. Share an OpenSCAD model on the site and gain access to “By Me a Coffee” tips from users who download your models.
So if you can help me and share information about the MakeWithTech properties on other forums you participate in, that would be great.
