Review of the HP Pavilion 14-ce0830nd

7 hours 54 min ago
I have recently bought a 14" laptop, the HP Pavilion 14-ce0830nd. This is a mid-range laptop. Installation of openSUSE Leap 15.2 was very easy. And installation of a dual boot system with Windows 10 was easy as well. The laptop has an attractive look and feel. The display, speakers, keyboard and external ports are all good. The touchpad is too sensitive, but this can be adjusted in the KDE settings. The machine has enough RAM, enough storage and the hard drives are performant. The Intel CPU/GPU is great. Which means that this is a great machine for multitasking.

Create LEGO designs in Blender with this plugin

Fri, 07/03/2020 - 15:46
I use LEGO CAD to document some of my own creations (or "MOCs," as custom sets are called in some digital LEGO communities). The advantage of computer-aided design (CAD) is precision. When you use CAD to build something in virtual space, you can reasonably expect that it can be built in the real world. While the LEGO CAD applications I use don[he]#039[/he]t have simulated physics to verify the structural integrity of my designs, I do lay every brick in the software to mimic a model I[he]#039[/he]ve made in real life.
