Yes, I little of both. I did manage to print some valves and elbows for an oil depot/tank farm facility that I am building from scratch. A dozen elbows and half dozen valves in 24 hours since delivery. Still a bit of a learning curve, but I see great use of this thing. The price was right, but it ain't the best model, I'm sure.Mike I see fun and frustration in your future
Will a quarter do? Here are some of the doo dads I made on the 3D printer the past week. Several of them I made many multiple copies.Great job Mike, can you take a picture next to a dime, so we can see how good you really are, small parts are really difficult to print successfully.
I did my first design in Tinkercad, another steep learning curve, LOL A simple pipe railingMike
Great job, thanks for the quarter comparison, I am a very unusual person, my favorite part of 3D printing is the drawing of the parts I want. yea I know CRAZY
Thanks Dennis!The build has the railing laying flat with the floor mounts separate, see my Thingiverse link above. I didn't want to waste a lot of time and material in supporting structure.Looks great Mike
Were you able to print the way it is setting now?
or laying down, and did floor brackets separately
Well my printer came with the Y axis rods completely out of their front support brackets. Was impossible to level. I turned the printer on it's back and saw the set screws were way loose like they were never tightened. Once I set the Y rods securely, I was able to level.Mike, I just bought the MP IIIPV2 and have been having trouble getting it levelled and calibrated. I'm printing a gravestone that has turned out successfully on two other printers, so I don't think it is the design. The problem is keeping the object from moving while printing.
Anyways, your stuff looks great and gives me hope for my own eventual success!
