Finally beginning 3 printing, hands-on

Recommended Posts

Posted · Finally beginning 3 printing, hands-on

Hi community.

Anders from Sweden joining.

Have been using 3D printing services since mid 90's and finally acquired a printer at work.

Its an Ultimaker 3 extended and has been running hot for about 1,5 week now. Almost gone thru 3 rolls of wire and a first clog... So bad neither several hot nor cold pulls solved it. Had to take the head apart and clean it with a drill.

Amazed of how easy it was to get started and produce decent prints.

 

Here are some of the trial pieces (can't show the work related stuff though). Made a holder for the file set we clean prints with and some cable clips in nylon to tie the power cord to the vacuum hose on my saw.IMG_20180728_35145.thumb.jpg.51f7b6453682edec3486fad097561180.jpgIMG_20180728_54892.thumb.jpg.3363559ae31672815d623e9fde9976c5.jpgIMG_20180728_10850.thumb.jpg.8222b86f85e8c34eb660ebc045271f49.jpg
