Been tempted to buy a new #3dprinter but that's silly when I have one that just needs fixing. Its been on the shelf for 18months, after the main board's heated bed connections burned out. I got replacement parts and even upgraded to a silicone heating pad, but never had the time/patience to get through #troubleshootingHell to get it working again. Had some free time today, so giving it a shot. I think it's safe to say it needs a bit of calibration again.

Installed the new end stop I printed last night, and #3dprinting a bit more this morning. Getting the settings dialed in a bit better and bed leveled. might be time to replace this old chipped glass plate, but thinking of working on the software side a bit more to try some better slicer settings and build a proper profile for the printer.

Definitely seeing improvement over the last few prints. I’ve only been #3dprinting these toilets because it was the last model I had prepped for my #dollhouse, and it’s got some challenges that make it less than ideal, lots of overhang, hollow, etc, It might be time to come up with another calibration test object which can tell me more about how the printer is actually working and point out ways to tune it. I’ve had my fill of bench and 20mm cubes though, so maybe something a bit more fun for science

Paleoparadoxia pt4

#paleoparadoxia cast in #ultracal pretty nice casts, you can see the texture of the #3dprint Ive cast up fifteen of them, now to clean up and paint


Well crap.

Well crap. It looks like I won’t be #3dprinting anything for a bit. This is the port that draws current for the heated bed, looking a bit uh overheated. I’ve got the parts i need to upgrade it, but it’s going to be a total overhaul of the print bed, and take a few days, which was why I’d been holding off. Next stop aluminum bed, with silicone heating pad, and maybe a capacitive touch sensor #reprap #rambo #art #3dprinter via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ubbvMa

car

This was the closest match I could find quickly for my car, they don’t make a 1:43 scale version so I figured I’d print my own #art #3dprinting #nissan via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tLnxMf

printed

I might have just 3D printed a bunch of toilets. Printer definitely needs some tuning, maybe change the extrusion multiplier or replace the hot end #art #miniature #3dprinting #didijustmakeapoopjoke #probably #sorrynotsorry via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tDXq9K
