I just “completed” my first build. I’ve had several 3d printers in the past, but this is new territory for me.
Printed all parts on a Ender 3, and ordered the parts kit from here.
Shockingly, even with my lack of any knowledge or experience with these, the build went great! Started working on it for an hour the day before Thanksgiving, then spent about three hours on it on Friday. Another two hours on Saturday (mainly just wrapping the wiring and setting up the board and screen), and my first test with the pen went GREAT!
Spoil board is VERY un-level, so one corner of the crown didn’t draw.
Jumped in feet first, and hooked up the spindle and v-carve bit. Decided to try and engrave the crown on a piece of MDF (SLOWWWWLY). Again the spoil board being un-level bit me, but it worked out great!
Tomorrow I will be leveling the board, and attempting my first “real” engraves and carves!
Thank you so much for such a great tool!!!
