After finishing my modding room and after some back and forth I pulled the trigger on a 3D printer on Black Friday. 2 days later it arrived with, what would become a 2 week headake.
I took a decision to buy the Creality CR-10S. Just couldn’t justify paying almost 250% more for a Prusa 3.
Wouldn’t be a computer modder and leave the printer untouched 🙂 Ordered some v-slots and went to work on my brand new printer…
After a few days later I was happy. I built a 2nd “floor” to the printer and will replace the controllerbox with my own printed design and hide inside the printer. That way I will have a footprint just as small as the printer and can also build an encloser (good for ABS printing etc).
I also replaced fans, added stepper dampeners, printed my own support brackets etc. Fun week.
After an additional week of tweaks and calibration and cursing I had finally dialed in my printer the way I wanted it.
Fairly accurate 🙂
That first layer is shiny <3
First prototype of many for project Angl3d. Testing different fastening brackets and shapes. The finished object will of course be a mesh, as it’s an air vent.
