3D printer


A few weeks ago I bought a second-hand 3D printer, namely Kossel 800 delta printer. It lacked the stepper motors, pulleys and a general clean-up of the wires. After a week of trying to figure out how this works, I had my first successful print last night.

Unfortunately I did not take pictures during the build, so you'll just have to take my word for it. We'll skip straight to the end result.

This is the latest print, the letter J. I'm quite pleased with the result so far, there are a few calibrations I need to do still, but all in all I'm very excited. Time to order a few kilograms of filament.

Oh, and if you're wondering why my latest posts have been from the kitchen table, it's because I'm building a new hobby room, so my daughter can have her own room in the house. The new hobby room is a converted outdoor shed; smaller and colder than ever before. Can't wait to move in.
