    We have that one - probably branded differently. It's good but quite noisy.

    yes i had read that it could be noisy .
    There are damper kits available that stop the noise now and quite cheap to buy.
    ...was also looking at replacing the base with a glass one too whilst building it.

    Any issues with yours @Lucy ? , ive heard its good providing you set up correctly and make sure the base is leveled .

    I don't ever use it - it's another toy gathering dust in the OHs study, but he's done some good stuff on it. He puts hairspray on the plate to stop the plastic sticking, and he cut a mirror down to lay over the base.

    I have the Creality CR-10S, works pretty well but yeah they’re damn noisy. You can make them sing if you really want to, stepper motors are interesting little things

    Mine also collects dust unfortunately.

    I think i will get more use out of mine .
    being a 24/7 carer , i have to be home most of the time so i can create and let it get on with it whilst im busy.
    its not the best weather to be out with my drones at the moment so i need another hobby :)

    My first print :) .
    Just a test model lion but not too bad considering i did minimal leveling etc.

    [​IMG]

    will be running a few more test prints before starting the bigger stuff.
    just some cable management to sort then i need to move it to it to where i need it.

    ive just changed the motherboard on mine , the one it came with had no bootloader so i couldnt update the firmware. the new motherboard has the latest firmware and bootloader installed and makes the stepper motors silent now.
    should work on your CR10 S too ;)

    Please don't get me wrong, but that looks to me like a very expensive way of getting a small plastic lion ornament.
    Has anyone found a genuine use for one of these in the home.
    I could perhaps see a small business opportunity knocking out personalised gifts etc.
    Not having a go, just genuinely curious.

    The OH tends to 3D print things for his home automation project. Face plates to all the temperature sensors and this week a holder for the oil tank sensor.

    I’ve printed a lot of custom brackets this month, and in the past all sorts: ant-weight combat robot shells, a riser for the wife’s night stand to level one of the legs, etc

    I quite like the song it songs, and it’s at the office anyway so noise isn’t really a bother :xd:

    Oh yes, Theres thousands of uses.

    Tap in what you need on this site and usually someone has already made it .

    www.thingiverse.com

    If its not there , then you could always design your own using something like Fusion 360.

    Those trinkets i made was more for fine tuning my machine using a standard cheap PLA , Ive ordered some PLA+ and also PETG for some outside projects that require stronger and more weather resistant properties.

    I really wish there was a better site than Thingiverse though. It’s dog slow, and has such poor curation and no requirements to provide info on settings, etc

    MyMiniFactory is a little better but the library is tiny by comparison
