Does anyone have a 3d printer I need parts printing

I will be very interested to hear how you get on, wherever you get them done.
thanks for the links. I got them from3Dprinterpunk.co.uk in the end and wow what quality and service "next day" The building is going well and might start selling hardware kits if I can undercut the guy on ebay
Thanks for the link. I’m planning to upgrade some parts of my PRUSA I3 3D printer. I think this material http://www.3d2print.net/shop/3d-printer-filament/nylon-filament/ is strong enough for printing 3D printer parts. What do you think Luke?
Ive just purchased this 3D Printer today.
Looks like theres a small learning curve but plenty of youtube tutorials and forum groups should i need help getting started.
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.
would love to see some of his creations if hes photographed anything .
.... as for the glass mirror , i think i'll stick to buying a pre made one ...for my safety
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
Sorry couldn't resist
My first print .
Just a test model lion but not too bad considering i did minimal leveling etc.
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.
A few fast speed video's of some test prints i did recently.
Sonic the hedgehog
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
Oh yes, Theres thousands of uses.
Tap in what you need on this site and usually someone has already made it .
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
