3D printer / 3D printing
« on: November 16, 2016, 15:41:33 PM »
Not too sure why I went for one, but prices on these machines are very low (for some!), so it was more a case of why not, than really needed one.

I have to say, it is pretty cool!  :) The print quality straight out of the box is very very good, and the parts are solid! Much more than anticipated!
I am still learning, but after I saw the 3D printed Spitfire back in May, I bought the files to print it. That will be my next big project on this machine.
But for now, I print various stuff.
The mouse is the file that comes with it to test it.
I also made a Falcon Millenium :) and a bunch of pilots for the Lunak (I picked the wrong PLA color... Green! Cannot see any details, but I'll put photos after painting.
And I'll order some white plastic next time!

So now, the workshop is getting cluttered with machines!  :(
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
