Monday last week I got a really big box.
|Oh, a black box. You usually don't know what's inside one of those, just what goes in and what goes out. This time I knew.|
I got it up and running immediately, as I had ordered an assembled printer. Well, mostly running actually, as there are always some glitches in the beginning.
For me it was initially one of the fans that didn’t work, resulting in failed prints. When I figured out what was actually the problem with the prints I blew through the fan with compressed air, and that seem to have removed whatever was in there. One less problem.
|Up and running the first print|
After that one of the prints, a wall-section of my Printable Scenery Rampage Open Lock stuff I build dungeons off, got loose during a print. That turned out to be really messy as the printer gladly continued to print into thin air, resulting in a bundle of thin filament. A large bundle.
|First object to print was this statue, the same I used to play around with on my old printer to get the settings right.|
All this while I was fiddling with layer-heights and infill to get a feeling of how it all affected the end-result.
|A mystery print for a friend. Can you figure out what it is, Koen?|
So now I’m printing away, happily. Everything seem to work as it should.
|Next mystery print coming from a kickstarter that will go live on tuesday. Expect a review.|
I’m printing a lot of modular dungeon at the moment, to be used in next weekends’ D&D game, and also review-stuff from two kickstarters. More on that soon.
