It’s rough, and I need to re-level the bed and calibrate my extrusion, but it’s a good v1. Going to change the size of the screws and threads (super fine detail like threads are hard to do, so may go the ‘press fit threaded insert’ route) and drop the height down to 1.75” instead of 3 to make it more streamlined.That looks flippin awesomr man. Now I want a 3D printer!
Yep- Christmas present from the kids.Wasn't this printer a gift awhile back? It looks like so much fun! Very cool update.
Cool. How big will these be?Yep- Christmas present from the kids.
I used it pretty regular for a month- made pen holders, crayon cases, some small toys, then a small cable snagged and it stopped heating. Got that fixed then life got in the way. Fired it up again last week to print some ‘trophy skulks’ I’m going to mount in my workshop, like deer heads etc.
But dinosaur and alien skulls, lol [emoji51][emoji51][emoji51]
I have an Adimlab gantry, which is a clone of the E3. Slightly less expensive to buy but it needs immediate upgradesOkay f it. I’m buying one. Which one do you have? I was looking at an Ender 3 Pro. It’s fairly inexpensive and seems to get great reviews.
PLAThanks, Neil. Looks like the price points are similar. Do you print with PLA or ABS?
Hmmm. I was planning on setting it up on my garage work benchPLA
ABS needs better temp control in an enclosure, and a charcoal fume extractor. The fumes are pretty nasty. Once I dial it in and am printing regularly, I might try ABS
PLA isn’t much better, but the material isn’t as toxic so I have it in a vented space in my basement.
