3D PRINTER UPDATE

Hi folks! Sorry to take so long, but time flies when your having fun and building a 3D printer. Was that really fun you ask!? My lips are sealed. Anyway I’m putting together a little video of it’s first print, that’s not ready, yet ,of course. Anyway here are few pictures of my 3D printer adventure, battle, war, and surrender!

And…. then…… several hours later.

 

Then I make the very first print. This happened about a week after the build (or puzzle, or crime scene) started.  I had to wait on the Azteeg X3 3D printer controller, the last piece, to show up. I think it passed through Hawaii on it’s way here.

Now the very first filament run throw the bot.
