KC's Build

As you probably know, my daughter is building her own printer with a friend of her as a end-term school project. Just ahead of her I am building my own, so I can coach them.

Milling went without any problems, but I had to reprint all the parts, since the fiilemant I used was probably to old (about 4 years) and layer adhesion was pretty much non-existent.

Today my printer made his first moves :slight_smile:

I redesigned the switchbox by the way. Now it fits the V2. As soon as I know if the socket fits, I will publish the files.

Cheers,
Kees

Just a small question…

Are those gaps by design?

Cheers,
Kees

Btw… Same green, different lighting :wink:

Yes. Just tighten those enough to snug it up, not enough to pull that closed.

Oh, nice thread. Glad you all are having fun with it!

As always I want to do some redesigning but as it is it gets the job done. Glad you came up with some mods, they look great and cover some gaps in my design.

Looks like you’re ready to start a youtube channel. That space is so clean.

Looks like a lot of fun.

Well, they are documenting the proces (video) and I cleaned that part of my mancave for them :wink:

Just for reference, my cave is just like any other mancave …

That’s cool. We should start another “share your workspace” thread. We have so many new people and I’m sure most of our workspaces have changed a bit.

Just got a new phone with a wide angle photo option. Perfect for my 3m2 chicken coop workspace :wink:
